To lose weight is overwhelmingly the #1 reason people diet and/or exercise.
We, in our society, have been conditioned to believe that focusing on weight loss is the key to achieving a certain desirable look, to being healthy, and ultimately being happy.

As long as our society continues to be influenced by their message they will continue to lead us down dead end paths.
Take a moment and read the article linked below. Very sad. Sad for the contestants involved.
Sad for the message likely received by a great many of the viewers of the show.
“Life is meant to be embraced, enjoyed and fully lived, not merely endured!”
To your health,
