In general, mankind, since the improvement of cookery, eats twice as much food as nature requires~Benjamin Franklin
You have to eat less to lose weight. A whole lot less food than you think. Just as Benjamin Franklin said, we eat twice, if not three times more food than nature intended. The availability and the amazing flavors of food in our modern times is the reason for the obesity epidemic spreading around the world.
According to nutritionists and scientists, the generations coming after us are the first generations in the history of humankind to have a life expectancy lower than that of the previous generation. The first generations to live less than their predecessors, in thousands of years. Take a moment to let that sink in.
Can you now grasp the unhealthy effects that overeating and a bad nutrition can have on your body. That hamburger, that deep fired spicy chicken wing is costing you more than your hard earned dollars. It is costing you days, even years off your life. The older you get the more you start to appreciate the importance of time. You can have all the wealth in the world and you can’t even buy 1 extra second in the end.
That is why eat less lose weight should become one of your life’s taglines. Don’t squander your precious time on earth by eating al kind of unhealthy food. And if you can’t avoid eating junk food, eat less junk food then. I bet there isn’t somebody sticking unhealthy food in your mouth. You are doing it and it is your responsibility to fix the problem.
As an experiment try reducing your food intake to half of what you eat now. You will be amazed when you discover you can live on that amount of food without problems, especially if you eat mostly healthy food. Learn the difference between emotional hunger and physical hunger. During the experiment eat more food only if you experience physical hunger. Emotional hunger isn’t real hunger, your body doesn’t actually need more food to survive. By distinguishing between the two you will be able to eat a lot less food each and every day, and start losing weight.
