Diets Don't Work, In Fact The Are The Reason Why You Are FatDiets don't workOthers have said it, books have been written about it, but irrespective, what people are left with is that the way to trim down or stay thin is to be on a diet.I myself heard the phrase, first, about fifteen years ago. There's a non-fiction written by a man who owned a fitness center, I think somewhere in the south, and the book starts with one of the best lines in history, he wrote "I had to call in fat one morning..."Anyhow, considering that he owned a health club, and worked out 7 days per week, you might be expecting him to be fit and lean. But he wasn't.Dr. Bob has his Ph.D. in psychology, so he likes to pay attention, especially to commonalities. And one typical thing he found: those who came in to drop some weight gained weight. And the guys that came in to bulk up and put on some weight, stayed lanky.He even did an experiment: there were a few scrawny thin fellas that really would have liked togain pounds, so he did something totally counter intuitive, and placed them on a weight loss program. They losta few pounds, but when they began toeat normally, they put a lot more on than what they lost on the calory reduced diet. So, he deduced and the subject of his bestseller, that diets don't work because they make you fat.I read his book, Diets don't work, I took part in a one-day training course made from it, Diets Don't work, but in the end, his was a variation of going on a diet too. And as he said, diets don't work.Why would he write one more diet book, you ask? hah! To begin with, diet books are popular. Fly off the shelves. Second, within the confined viewpoint of the human mind, that is where the answer lies...and as a human being, he responds to what he sees, understands, perceives, like every other human being.From the limited perspective of the human mindBut along with reactive behavior, humans are notorious for not seeing the forest for the trees, trying to cure symptoms and either not looking for the root cause, or searching for the cause at places where there is lumination... just like the drunk searched for his keys... A drunk is creeping on the sidewalk, and the police officer approaches him and questions him what he is looking for. The drunk answers that he is looking for his keys. After a while the policeman asks if he was sure he lost them there. The drunk answers, No, over there, and points to a distant point. And why are you looking for them here? Because there is light here.Why is that joke so funny? I suggest that the laughter is the laughter of recognition, in one way or another, we are all like that drunk.It is a human being bahavior, not reserved for drunks, not reserved for "other people", we are all like that. We are looking where we have always looked. We keep repeating the same thing, expecting a different result. Just watch your behavior when you can't find your car keys. If you behave like I do, you go back to the same spot 10 times, and say: It must be here, l.o.l.But where are the answers? Where are the answers that would make a difference in the area of epidemic obesity? Where are we not looking?The Science of Getting Thin or Diets Don't Work, The Truth Is They Turn You Fat
