So what am I holding in the “Today” photo?
“Earlier this week, researchers reported that skipping breakfast was linked to heart disease. A few days later comes word that skipping breakfast could be a good weight-loss strategy because people don’t make up for all those calories later in the day.
Should we tear our hair out in frustration? Or cozy up to the scrambled eggs?”
“What about people who won the weight battle – keeping off at least 30 pounds for a year or more — and are part of the National Weight Control Registry? They eat breakfast.”
“You’re talking about the exceptions,” Levitsky said. Those people are not like most people: They are more health-conscious, they exercise more, they’re extraordinarily watchful over what they eat. “It’s dangerous to extrapolate from them,”he said. (The emphasis is mine.)
Dangerous? He called us dangerous? Seriously?
As an individual who has qualified for the National Weight Control Registry I am outraged at being called dangerous.
Ok, I admit, I’m a little bit flattered too.
There’s something exciting about being thought dangerous, as if I was some kind of Femme Fataleor something. But no, I’m just a formerly chubby kid and obese middle aged mom who wanted health, and yes beauty, so badly that she was willing to change her whole life in order to get it.
Is it dangerous to do exercise you enjoy for 30 minutes three times a week? Is is dangerous to dance or do yoga for three more hours during the week because you love it and it makes you feel fantastic and energized?
Speaking of energized, is it dangerous to eat a breakfast of organic eggs and vegetables cooked in Kerrygold butter every day?
Is is dangerous to eliminate sugar and grains from my diet because they trigger binges, and I don’t want to binge ever again?
It may be dangerous to extrapolate from what I do each day to stay lean, but if you want leanness, and vitality, and you want to feel like your ideal authentic self (rail thinness is not required to qualify), maybe you might want to try what has worked so brilliantly for me.
Here is my affiliate link for Turbulence Training.
This is the program that fueled my transformation, and that I am using in the 18th Turbulence Training Transformation Contest to help my students at Gordon Studio to transform their bodies as well. Far from being dangerous, the program is safe, smart, effective, and it can work for you too.
