Before & After: A New Look at New Years Resolutions
Have you seen the ditty below that's roaming the Internet these days? Before you read it and fall for its 'humor,' consider this. Each year, thousands, even millions, of people engage in an after-the-holidays ritual of self-denigration and punishment ? to make up for the pleasurable indulgence of a very special time of year. It's 'funny' to most of us to read about it, as in the poem below, but if we take a closer look, we can see how the 'humor' perpetuates an approach to living that's not really about taking care of yourself.

The Diet Demons
As the dieting phenomenon grows, with a new "diet guru" announcing "THE SOLUTION" almost weekly, so do the waste lines of America expand. Obesity is now a strong and gaining second to cigarettes as a preventable cause of death or disease. The term diet seems to have taken on a whole new meaning, moving from panacea, and becoming more and more a pariah.
It?s the travel time, meaning hours spent sedentary. It prepares me for the visiting, when I know there?ll be no activity.

Changing Your Eating Habits
We are bombarded with advertisements pushing delicious looking, fat filled, and obesity producing food in our faces every single day. We hear it on the radio; see it on TV and on billboards and even in newspapers. We go on a diet and try to totally turn our eating habits around. We go from eating hamburgers, French fries, pizza, hot dogs, and other junk to eating lettuce and drinking water. If we are really disciplined we make it a week or so. But like most people, we are back to our old habits within days. The change is just too drastic and makes it next to impossible for us to stick to our diets.
Diet or Lifestyle?
?I am going to start a diet tomorrow?. How many times have we said or heard these words? What do these words mean to you? For most of us it means a period of time in which we will subject ourselves to torture in order to lose a few pounds. Eventually we grow tired of this torture and go back to our old habits and gain those pounds back. I have known people who have been on this diet merry-go-round for years. One person comes to mind who actually uses the words: ?I need to stop eating for a while?! This person thinks that the key to ideal weight and health is to not eat. He will skip breakfast and eat a pack of crackers for lunch and then a light dinner in the evening. He loses weight only to gain it back when he decides ?to eat? again. This is an unhealthy practice which has been proven not to work on a long term basis.
