Nothing to it but to do it

Diets and weight loss programs seem to be having little effect on our national epidemic of obesity, and it’s mainly because of habits we choose not to break. According to Self Magazine, losing just one dietary bad habit can result in significant weight loss over a year. If you just substitute high calorie offenders for similar tasting, lower calorie choices, the weight loss can still be significant. Give up one teaspoon of cream in your coffee and you’ll lose three kilos a year. Give up a glazed donut a day and you’ll lose ten kilos over a year. It’s all so easy; there’s nothing to it but to do it.
The trouble is bad habits are like comfortable beds – easy to get into but hard to get out of. Some wise person once said that a habit is something you can do without thinking, which is why so many of us have so many of them.
