Dieting is a life long journey

"Tough diets never last, but tough dieters do."
- Mark Hollingsworth

A diet that is any good for the whole being doesn't last for a couple of weeks or even a couple of months. It isn't just about getting into a new pair of pants or a new dress for a party or dinner. A diet is suppose to last our whole life. As they say, "You are what you eat."

Every bite of food that we take in is part of our daily diet because it is our necessary intake of food. So we need to choose a diet that we will last and it must be one that will keep us healthy for the long haul. Dieting is a series of daily choices that ultimately will be measured in how much we weigh and, in some cases, how long we live. What we decide about our dietary options today will directly affect our dietary requirements five, ten, or twenty years from now. In other words, cheese cake today, bulges tomorrow!

We must not try to cram a lifetime of good eating habit into one month. We need to choose eating habits that will last as long as we do. It doesn't have to be peas and broccoli at every meal.
