What Would You Give Up to Be Thin?

I’m pretty shocked by what people are willing to trade [7] to be thin. Limbs? Eyesight? Marriage? Lifespan? Children?

I’m shocked, because avoiding obesity really doesn’t have to be so dramatic.

Yes, the statistics are dramatic – two-thirds of Americans are lugging around way too much weight.

The effects are dramatic – heart disease, diabetes, cancer, reduced quality of living.

The purported cures are dramatic, too – billions on drugs, herbs, gimmicks, and gadgets.

Yet avoiding obesity is not a dramatic undertaking at all. It’s very easy – truly. And that’s a relief, isn’t it? You simply decide not to harm yourself.

Avoiding exercise is harming yourself.

Eating fast food, junk food and huge portions? Harming yourself.

Smoking, drinking, getting into stressful situations? Harming yourself.

Eating sugar is harming yourself.

Not enjoying and using your body is harming yourself.

So don’t harm yourself.

Because harming yourself is really just death – warmed up.
