Here is a link to an article in the Wall Street Journal about the latest diet books. I am not linking this article to promote any of these books but rather to get you to pay attention to the “What’s Peculiar” section on each book. There as many diets these days as there are people. It all comes back to the basics, eat less and move more. Easier said than done, I realize, but that is the basic idea so “diets” really don’t get you anywhere.
Probably most of you out there has tried a diet before and it probably didn’t work for you. The problem with diets is once they fail, and they will, we blame ourselves. We can’t lose weight, we are broken and there is something wrong with us. But I want you all to know, it is the diet that doesn’t work, not you. You are not broken, you are not unable to lose weight and there is nothing wrong with you. The diet is what failed. So keep that in mind as you read the above link.
