I am so sick of driving down the street and seeing signs advertising liposuction, or hearing on the radio about the newest pill you can take to make you lose all this weight. Can our society just stop being so dang vain and focused on such superficial things?
I am a big fan of being healthy by eating well and exercising because it makes me happy and strong, but please stop making me feel like I have to be a size 0 or only drink liquids to be the perfect size!
My co-worker sent me this article this morning about some twinkie diet which is maybe what got me all fired up. I just think it's time to focus on things that actually matter...
The article makes some good points, don't get me wrong. Watching your calorie intake is important but it is also good to make sure your eating nutrient dense foods, whether that leads to weight loss or not. I don't think eating Twinkies and Doritos is the answer.
