It’s Time For Your Diet To Die

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ February 21, 2007

I want to focus on the subject of “diet” for just a moment. I don’t think it’s any coincidence that the first three letters of that word are D-I-E! LOL! If you’ve ever been on one, then you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about.

But people who have read about my low-carb weight loss success know that I absolutely ABHOR the use of that word. Not that I don’t appreciate that it was the Atkins DIET that I used to lose my weight. It worked VERY well for me and I am now 190 pounds lighter because of it. I don’t regret going on that diet one bit.

Yet it is not because of the diet itself, but rather the commitment to making this way of eating my permanent choice for life. This is such a foreign concept to so many people who desire weight loss and improved health. All they see is the immediate problem and a diet seems to help them get from Point A to Point B the fastest so they can get back to the normal lives again.


Kissing your diet goodbye forever is the first step in the journey that people need to commit themselves to before they proceed any further. Otherwise, you are setting yourself up for disappointment even before you begin.
