    Popular! Accepting the Body You Have Top Rated
    No one is ever 100% satisfied with their body, it may seem. There are always ideas and resolutions to lose weight, gain weight, increase muscle mass, lose muscle mass, what have you. Body results are not what the Hollywood theaters would have you believe. Most people are not built like an Angelina Jolie or a Brad Pitt. However, even if you are not built or look like a person such as that, it is fine to accept who you are and find the beauty within *and even outside* yourself. Find out how here.

    Popular! Four Stages of Breaking an Addiction
    Nowhere do the Four Stages of Addiction come into play more powerfully than they do when you resist changing a habit relating to the foods with which you self-medicate. For most of us those foods are the instant, and easily available – Bread, Beverage, Dessert, or Alcohol. For others they are the fatty foods, and plenty of them. You might choose huge portions of steak, hamburger, and French fries, enormous bowls of salad with globs of dressing. Perhaps chunks of cheese appear as a part of your daily food consumption.

    Unrealistic Expectations Can Cause Failure
    An informational and helpful article by Caryl Ehrlich, author of Conquer Your Food Addiction.

    Weight gain is an evolutionary process. Some people call it creeping weight. The scale turtles inexorably upward – a tight skirt, a belt notch, a can’t-zip-up-my-pants inch at a time. Yet you expect the scale to go down as rapidly as a high-speed elevator. This erroneous thought pattern – practiced and perfected as with any bad habit – is an unrealistic expectation. Dangerous to be sure with any endeavor, but deadly when it comes to weight reduction.
