Surely I'm not the only one..!?

Ok, so before I do anything else each morning, I reach for the laptop and check the, Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, you know the drill. But why is it, each morning I find myself reading a ridiculous new story which tells me easy ways to Lose up to a stone in a month without the dieting? I can't help myself, even though I know the contents of each any every article I will ever read on this subject!

Some examples of  a few this week - 

  1. The six secrets of the most successful slimmers
  2. Six Fat loss questions you need to know the answers to..
  3. Lose a stone in a month without dieting!!

On today's , my personal favourite tip was this;
Get fussy with fats
Avoid all high fat foods such as cream, chocolate, take outs, crisps, chips, puddings, cakes, biscuits and cheese

WHAT!? Give me strength!!

Each and every article says the same thing, but in different words when really I know the only way to lose weight is to Eat less, and move more! Couldn't be simpler...but why do we (I know it's not just me) make this the most difficult thing in the world?

I am not overweight, I do have to watch my weight - but I can't help but read these ridiculous miracle cure articles! I blame society, obviously :)

I wonder if there is a rehab for the giving up reading these ridiculous articles, I might need to check myself in..anyone want to join me?

  1. I read these articles. My personal favourites are the ones which tell you all the bad things that happen to you when you have certain food or drink (like bloating or allergies or toxins or whatever) and if you took into account all of them you would only eat lettuce and sip water from glacier in Reykjavik!

    Just have a burger and enjoy life I say! xx
