The Only Diet That Works

Aug 17, 2007
We know that diets don't work, although there is one diet that does.

It doesn't have anything to do with what you eat, rather what you see and hear.

What is it?

The "media diet".

You avoid the media - including radio, television and newspapers.

Have you noticed when you watch, read or listen to the news, it's almost all negative? With a constant input of negativity, it's more difficult to have a positive outlook, to reach your health and life goals, and enjoy your life. Nothing supresses your immune system more than bad news and negativity.

And when you're watching television programs, you're watching others enjoying their lives (or ruining them) while they make a great living at it! Usually, these actors are attractive, wealthy and healthy looking.

Why spend your life listening to all the negative things going on in the world and watching others enjoy their lives? Make your own life the best ever!

You might ask, how will I find out what's happening in the world without getting the news? Well, you'd be surprised how little it all means to your personally. Let me ask you to try this. Don't watch or read the news for 1 week. Then don't watch television for a week. Then try it for a month and see how your life has changed. What do you have to lose other than gaining more time?

Just imagine what you could do with an extra 10-15 hours a week:

-You can start an exercise and activity program to lose weight and increase your health.
-You can read on a topic of your interest.
-You can spend more time with your family.
-You can learn a new skill
-You can become more valuable to your employer and increase your income
-You can start or get back to a hobby.
-You can start a new business.
-You can learn how to overcome a health challenge
-You can learn how to prepare healthy meals
-You can become an expert at something you enjoy.
-You can volunteer and help others.

A recent study of the habits of members of the National Weight Control Registry - a group of about 5,000 people who have lost an average of 73 pounds and kept off at least 30 of them for more than six years - found that most watch fewer than 10 hours of TV a week.

Members of the Weight Control Registry that increased TV viewing habits were more likely to gain weight.

I've been on the media diet for just under a year now and it's made a significant impact on my life. Sure, I watch a tv program or movie a few times a month just for fun. With the extra time (some studies report that American families watch television over 52 hours a week) I've been able to reach more goals, make new and enhance existing relationships, help others more often and better my health.

You're Awesome and YOU can do it!
