I was perusing CNN.com as I do in the afternoons and saw this article about how dieters on low-fat diets are generally happier than those on low-carb diets. All I have to say is: DUH!
What’s the point of dieting, exactly? To get to a lower, healthier weight, yes, but eventually it should become a natural way of life. Last time I checked, passing on bread at every meal isn’t exactly natural. I’ve become a firm believer over these past few months that dieting of any sort has to be maintainable. No drastic cutting-out of any food group, and no temporary substitutions of fake foods (light butter, sugar substitutes, etc). Yep, you might lose weight slower, but in the end, apparently you’ll be happier, and as far as I’m concerned, you’ll be more prepared to keep the weight off because you’ll be in a habit of doing good, healthy things for yourself. In any case, thought you might like to take a look. Enjoy!
