You Don't Diet?

Ever looked up the meaning of the word diet? Well here it is from Websters dictionary

Main Entry: 1di·et

1 a : food and drink regularly provided or consumed b : habitual nourishment c : the kind and amount of food prescribed for a person or animal for a special reason d : a regimen of eating and drinking sparingly so as to reduce one’s weight <going on a diet>
2 : something provided or experienced repeatedly <a diet of Broadway shows and nightclubs — Frederick Wyatt>

I used to say that I don’t diet. Really? How could that have been? I didn’t regularly eat food and drink? Well, if that’s the case, where did the extra 20 pounds come from?

After further review, (i.e. the mirror) I determined that I have a diet – for better or worse – a diet none the less it was. A diet full of the wrong choices at the wrong times. Looking at statistics of the general population, I fear I’m not alone! Saying I don’t diet is just an illusion – a set of mental smoke and mirrors to make myself believe that what I eat doesn’t matter. Well, the extra 20 pounds I discovered around my waist is a clear indication what I eat matters.

It seems popular culture dictates that a diet is a bad thing, when in fact a diet should be a very good thing! I’m finding with simpleweight, a diet is exactly that – a GOOD thing.

For me my diet is changing, and I hope you’ll change yours with me. I’m learning which foods are better for me, and I am trying to make better choices about what I eat. I’ve been tracking my weight, exercise and foods I’ve eaten… and you know what… good things are happening. And really, it’s not that hard. I’ve lost 14 pounds to date – And I feel great! Why don’t you join me. Whether you diet or not, you have a diet – now make it a good one!
