No wonder there is so much chatter, conflict, and confusion within the “diet” world! Apparently there are more than 77,000 ways of dieting to choose from today on Amazon. My “search” for diet books actually yielded 77,625 results… Plus, if you were to also consider the multitude of pills, potions, & programs being sold, Americans are spending BILLIONS of dollars on dieting every year (≈ $33 billion/year according to NIH, 2003)!
Yet, where has it gotten us??
Very often, it’s gotten us nowhere.
One problem lies inside the field of nutrition itself. It’s a field that is not well regulated, so let’s just say there lots of “weeds” mixed in with the wheat… wild exaggerations, misinterpretations not supported by sound science, and even lies being fed to many of us every day. After all, there aren’t 77.000+ variations of real truth being offered in this world… So be careful who (and what) you place your trust in. But don’t give up—because in this field, there is truly a way that brings nourishment and peace… The good way to take for life! −EF
