How to Lose Weight and Stay Healthy and Fit

The Education Diet

Objective: The student will lose weight and remain healthy and fit (and perhaps help the world?)

Procedure:

  1. Eat less
  2. Exercise more

I was at the grocery store today and they were selling hot dogs to help raise money for the hungry. People couldn’t get enough of them. And Years ago my wife’s church held a spaghetti dinner to also raise money for the hungry. I’m all for raising money and seeking donations to help those who are in need, especially those who do not have enough to eat but something about the concept of eating as much as you can to help others who have nothing to eat at all is very disturbing to me. Especially since these types of fundraisers actually promote over eating to raise money which will then (hopefully) be spent on food to be doled out (sparingly I assume) to those who are hungry. I understand that it’s well intentioned but doesn’t it also kind of highlight what must be that flaw in our collective DNA that just seems to always keep us from getting things right?

    You make such a good point! Why do all the fundraisers and charity events have to center around over-eating? We are a society obsessed with food. I am trying eat less as well, and it sure is hard when every social event features some expansive meal.
