Weight Loss: Your Genes Are Not Your Fate!
Skip yo-yo dieting and listen to Dr. Dean Ornish!
Okay! I want to be thin and not just for cosmetic reasons. I want to feel better. Healthier. Well, I do want to look better in my clothes and especially in photographs. Some days I look at pics of myself and think, “Who is that fat boy?” So many of my girlfriends say the same thing! Every day those photos on Facebook stare right back at us saying, “Yes this is what you look like.”
Horrifying! I want to wake up in the morning full of energy instead of pushing the snooze button for five more minutes! I know it’s about food and exercise but I’m starting to think as I get older that the food thing is becoming critical!
Now you might be saying, “Well then Harvey, go on a diet!” Listen sisters, I feel like I’ve been on a diet since I came out of my mother’s womb. I’ve tried them all! Low carb, no carb, calorie counting, fasting, juicing and I even think I tried a pizza diet once that if you ate it standing up you got half the fat! I’ve lost weight but it always comes back. Is it my genes? My fate? My heritage?
Luckily for us I met the most amazing man ever who looked me straight in the face and said, “Harvey, your genes are not your fate! Instead of diet, think lifestyle and learn how to live your best life ever!”
