Lose Weight. Really?

I’ve found the secret to losing weight! It doesn’t involve not eating spuds, bread, pasta, or — if one of the latest diet manuals is to be believed — eating all the spuds, bread, pasta you want.

My method truly works. Eat less, but eat better (ie. more veg & fruit & whole grains). Exercise more…as in go for a walk.

I’m not quite at a fever pitch of perfection practicing what I preach, and I work at Rodale, surrounded by people exercising—we even have treadmill work stations available—and eating piles of green leafy organic things. So I have no excuse. But old habits die hard.

However. My recent attendance at a conference to push forward the agenda presented by a recent Rodale book, “The Prince’s Speech: On The Future of Food”, shook me to my core (which I know needs strengthening). My biggest takeaway? Panelist Dr Robert S. Lawrence’s observation that we “self-medicate” with food everyday, and we can CHOOSE to use either good or bad “drugs.”

Ergo: You are what you eat. And it’s our choice. Really.
