There’s no better example of delusional thinking than weight loss. What was once a socially acceptable problem has turned into an American epidemic. Getting fat is literally killing people by the millions, and robbing millions more of the healthy and vibrant life they deserve. The bad news is Madison Avenue has learned how to capitalize on the masses delusional thinking in this area. They run ads that say getting fat isn’t our fault, and present weight loss as a complex biochemical process that only their pill, potion, or program can solve…and people buy it by the truckload. The good news is you don’t need any of them to get thin and healthy. All you need is mental toughness. Losing and maintaining your ideal weight is a two step process anyone can master. I’ll look forward to hearing your comments on this post. Steve Siebold, CSP, CPCS
