Eight cruel truths about getting into shape


·         Dieting is cruel because diets don’t work and then you think it’s your fault.
·         The food industry is cruel because all they want is for you to buy more of 
their stuff so they make it easier for you to eat more food faster.
·         Scales are cruel because you are not good or bad depending on a number.
·         Magazines and television featuring too thin models are cruel 
because they stop you seeing your own beauty.
·         Diet Coke is cruel because water is better.
·         Snack shops are cruel because they tempt you with ice-creams, popcorn 
and muffins which spoil your appetite for supper.
·         Super-sized portions are cruel because no-one is going to stop 
eating halfway.
·         The way we live now is cruel because we don’t have enough time 
to cook properly and sit down at a table with plates and knives and forks 
and loved ones to enjoy food together.
The only way to get into shape is to decide to be kind to yourself 
moment by moment, 
starting with this moment.
