Bite on This!

“Those who think they have no time for healthy eating will sooner or later have to find time for illness.” – Edward Stanley.

      This article is going to be simple and to the point.  It is not directed at any one person that I know, it is to everyone.  I am not going to say it nicely.  I am simply going to say it.  I am not going to be sensitive about the reaction of the reader, for the reader must take responsibility for his/her own emotional responses.  I am not going to play to the ‘What if?’ or the ‘But there’s this to consider…’ or even the ‘Life has to change first…’ reactions that people tend to come up with; anything other than compliance is an excuse.

     Dean G. Parsons’ 10 Point Healthy Eating Lifestyle:

  • Limit the size of your portions.  You are in control.  Fact.
  • Do not eat after 7pm.
  • Eat a balanced and nutritious meal, only.
  • Consume fewer calories than you burn.
  • Burn more calories with increased exercise.  Keep moving.
  • Do not reward yourself with food.  That is how we treat a dog.
  • Do not eat on emotions.  You are not an infant child, you are an adult.
  • Do not drink calories.  No fizz.  Limit alcohol consumption.  Fruit juice is food.
  • Take responsibility for what you buy in the shops.  You are in control.  Fact.
  • Take responsibility for your hands and mouth.  They act on your command.  Fact.

That is it.  It is that simple.  Make that your eating lifestyle and you will lose weight and keep the weight off.

Here is the truth:

You may offer a million and one things that you have experienced in the past, or that are going on in the present or that may happen in the future but hear this:

Stop making excuses.  Follow Dean’s 10 point rules.

You may offer all manner of explanations about how you feel, but hear this:

Stop making excuses.  Follow Dean’s 10 point rules.

You may offer a variety of reasons that you believe you are not in control or able, but hear this:

Stop making excuses.  Follow Dean’s 10 point rules.

You may say you are ‘big boned’, that ‘it’s genetic’ or that your body ‘works differently.’

Stop making excuses.  Follow Dean’s 10 point rules.

You may say that you have ‘too much going on’, that you need to ‘work towards doing this’ or you may say ‘I know how I work best and I have to psych myself up to it’ or that you have to ‘get in the right headspace first.’

Stop making excuses.  Follow Dean’s 10 point rules.

You may say that you have lost weight successfully before and that you have to do it ‘your way.’  Well, you have never lost weight successfully before, because you put the weight back on.  Your way does not work.

Stop making excuses.  Follow Dean’s 10 point rules.

 

Harsh?  Maybe.  I didn’t need to write a book or invent any new fad diet to convey the real truth.  Throw away all the books and fad diet plans that you have.  They do not work.  It is as simple as living to my 10 point rule, as detailed above.

What is it going to be?  Live differently or make excuses?  It is your choice.  Decide well.  You are in control.  Take responsibility for your well-being, size and shape.  Start now.

You can do it.
