Diets Make You FAT!


“If you are tired of starting over, then stop giving up.” ~~anonymous

We who have dieted, and dieted, and DIETED AGAIN  already know that dieting makes you fat. But why? If you are interested in the science, read this. If you want off this roller coaster, read on…

The main reasons diets don’t work, and in fact make you fat, have to do with your individual metabolism, your genetics, and your living habits. Is it true that a “calorie is a calorie is a calorie?” Yes. And no.  Is it true that there are “good” and “bad” fats? Yes. Is it also true that there are a lot of confusing, strange and very expensive “solutions” to our weight problems–and none of them work permanently? Yes.

Bottom line: People will not lose weight without A) reducing caloric intake, while B) moving more.

Most of the problem, for many of us, lies in issue A). I don’t know about you, but I will NOT eat things, consistently, that do not taste good to me. I cannot exist on a  diet of wheat grass, tofu, arugula and fill-in-the-blank icky so-called “health food.” I can’t do much to help you with issue B). But I’m going to do the best I can to help with issue A).  I can share with you recipes, and common-sense steps we can take that will help us to change–because THAT is the key–change.

Bad news: This is hard.



Good news: It works, and you never have to be fat again.
