Losing weight is difficult
The underlying message from diet programs is that losing weight is difficult.
You’ve got to count calories or points!
Or pay for ready-made meals that may be calorie-conscious but lacking in freshness and Prana or vital nutrition!
The truth is if you choose the “quick fix” approach, then yes, losing weight will be difficult.
However, if you choose the sustainable, root-cause approach, then no, it’s not difficult to lose weight. (more…)
Dieting doesn’t lead to sustainable health
Relying on diets and diet programs for long term health and well-being creates 2 problems worth looking at.

I remember waking up in the morning and jumping out of bed and running down the stairs to go to the barn.
I’d pick an egg that the hen had just laid, still warm in my hands.

I thought I’d end up in the hospital.
The searing burning pain in my stomach woke me up from a tormented sleep.
My sheets were soaked with sweat, yet I was shivering.
I was so scared that I contemplated calling 911 to take me to the emergency room.

So I crawled to my bathroom, got in the bathtub and turned on the shower. First hot, then cool. (more…)
