Seriously?

From 8 reasons Carbs help you lose weight, an article featured on Yahoo.

Carbs make you feel good about you!
“Dieters feel so empowered once they lose weight on carbs. For the first time, they are able to lose weight by eating in a balanced manner, without cutting out entire food groups,” says Sari Greaves, a registered dietitian and spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association.

Anyone who knows me would know that I haven’t got the healthy eating thing figured out. But seriously? Can we just say enough with all this already?

One thing I do know is that there is no new miracle trick for weight loss.

Eat less.

Burn more calories.

My own opinion is that for most of us that need to lose weight, figuring out why we can’t/don’t do those is 90% of the battle. Fat or protein or carbs aren’t the problem. And they aren’t the savior either.

One thought on “Seriously?
