What is the biggest weight-loss obstacle you face right now?
- I don't like many fruits and vegetables.
- I can't seem to find time to cook healthy meals.
- I have trouble controlling my portions.
- I eat when I'm stressed, in a bad mood or bored.
Can you see the inherent prejudice in these selections? The Mayo Clinic is a doctor-run diet. So they must be right, right? No! Doctors screw up on a daily basis! They are some of the fattest and unhealthiest people on the planet. I say this after having worked in a hospital for awhile a few years ago.
After clicking through the windows and finally getting to the point where they entice you to get started on their diet, they then want you to get cracking by paying $4 per week. NO THANKS! If you want to know more about the Mayo Clinic Diet, I suggest you buy the book from Amazon before committing to an online program. A little revision - I went to a bookstore on Sunday with the Hubs and paged through the actual book. It's quite good and talks about moderation and potential places where diets get hung up - and there are many more than just those 4 on their online quiz. I guess they figured out the most popular ones and stuck with them. In any case. Stick with the book. You can get it for cheap.
Here is a link to the book which has a preview. Read what others have to say about it.
I haven't been getting many responses from people lately. I am wondering if I should take my weight loss interests to a different blog where they might find better focus, or if I should stick with dieting as a part of spiritual growth. The truth is, I don't really know right now if I will keep this here or go somewhere else.
