Today I was taking a look at this article about How Americans are Gluttons for Diet Fads and just got so frustrated. It makes my heart hurt that the diet industry is alive and kicking so well here in the United States.
I’m going to be the most unpopular person in America today, but I’m going to tell you the truth.
There’s no quick fix.
There is NO.QUICK.FIX. people.
There is no shake, diet, drug, detox, or wrap that is going to get you thin healthfully.
There just isn’t. (Sidebar: Most people don’t give a crap about the healthfully part, they just want to be THIN.AT.ALL.COSTS.AND.AS.QUICKLY.AS.POSSIBLE.)
And when you feed into the machine of the DIET industry – it generally results in a repeat performance and then some. They’ve got you. You lost it, you gained it back, you want to lose it again and quickly.
It’s crazy making.
And it’s not good for your SOUL (because then you’re not loving the gift of YOU and you’re basing that self-disgust, hate, derision on the size of your damn pants.)
And it’s not good for your BODY (because you’re not giving it what it really needs.)
And it’s not good for your MIND (because then you obsess about it and it becomes all that you think about.)
Good food. Healthy amounts. Eat a rainbow. Move your body in a way that pleases you. Deep breaths. Get fresh air. Laugh. Love your amazing self. You may not end up being your dream size, but…you just might be AT PEACE and HEALTHY. Come on people.
