Diet is a 4 Letter Word

I have been helping people lose weight for over 15 years.  It is all about eating and exercising lifestyle.  There is a lot of information to digest (no pun intended) and I will try and present the template for success in eating and diet lifestyle over the next several blog posts.   Start today and you will see and live the difference.

Don’t change the clothes you wear, change your eating lifestyle.

I have seen diet fads come and go.  The bottom line is this, diets don’t work.  Yep I said it.  Look at the word “diet”.  It starts with “die” and adds a t (metaphor for cross or sacrifice).  The diet industry is a multibillion dollar machine that runs on people’s fear and lack of discipline.  Now I’m not saying you can’t lose weight on diets, but keeping the weight off is the challenge.  I encourage patients to make a lifestyle change.  Change your habits and lifestyle and you will change your life.  It starts with what and how you eat.

I have been on a slow/no carb lifestyle for over 15 years.   This type of eating lifestyle has become more popular over the past decade due to the fact that it works.  The best in depth description of this diet (I prefer lifestyle) is in the book 4 hr. body by Tim Ferris .   I have tweaked and simplified the slow/no carb diet for my patients and will give you the basics to build off over the next several weeks.  I will also give you recipes and “hacks” that will help you stay the course.  The ultimate goal is that your new food and exercise choices become your permanent lifestyle.
