Weight Loss and Happiness

"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results"

This quote is used so often in the weight loss industry it has almost become cliche (plus I find it very confusing), so here is one that I find much more valuable.

"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."

This quote is from Albert Einstein, and I think it can be used to describe our current obesity crisis very nicely.

To put it bluntly, if we try to use the nutrition and diet recommendations that caused our obesity problems as a way to FIX our obesity problems, we're doomed for failure.

If you are happy with your current routine and you are happy with the way it makes you look and feel then you do not need to change your program. IT IS WORKING.

However, if you find your current weight loss routine, boring, monotonous, hard, restricting, or ineffective then stop spinning your wheels and find a new routine, because the one you are following right now is NOT WORKING.

If you want a change of pace, and a routine and way of life that is unlike any other weight loss routine then maybe it's time you gave Eat Stop Eat a try.

The quote from Einstein, is excellent. Now there was a man, who refused to conform, or allow limits to be set for himself.
