It’s not a surprising statement that people want to lose weight, but it is distressing to think that “staying fit and healthy” is not always considered the “key” needed to safely lose the weight, and KEEP it off.
Today’s society is one of “instant gratification,” don’t eat breakfast, drink coffee, skip lunch, more coffee, then maybe something light for dinner, for some that sounds reasonable, and for others it still sounds like too much food. The mindset seems to be focused on the number of pounds lost, and how you physically look, not on maintaining a healthy body weight, which in turn can help to lower your blood pressure, cholesterol and sugar levels, for weeks, months, and years to come.
