    Great post.

    It’s like what I call “The Think Diet.” Before I eat something, I ask myself why I’m eating. Often I talk myself out of it if the reason is because (1) two more bites will finish the serving (2) it tastes good (3) I’m feeling depressed (4) everyone else is eating (5) I’m in a social or business situation and it’s an ice breaker to eat and talk about food (6) it’s just sitting there or (7) I just want it. These reasons don’t always stop me but they sure do cut down on a lot of unnecessary eating.

    Everyone is an individual in the way they approach dieting….A nice quote is take out the “T” diet and you get the picture. Be assured when you approach a new eating pattern the best recommended approach is 100 cals a week….Don’t cut your eating by greater then 10% per/week…..Let the body and the mind especially ajust. Your brain consumes 10-15% of your caloric intake cut too much your in for a cloudy few weeks and inevitably failure.
    Don’t forget exercise resistance training enhances your metabolism and cardiovasucular is great for your ticker.
