The reason someone is fat is because their bodies are not burning fat well. You are not using the fat. Think about it. You have a car. You fill it with gas. If you leave it there and come back two weeks later. You check the gas tank—it’s still full. You say “why is it still full?” And the next week it’s still full. Well, that’s because you didn’t go anywhere.

If you empty the gas tank---you would have no gasoline. But now you can’t go anywhere. That’s what people who diet do. They empty the gas tank—instead of saying “why don’t I run the motor.” People who are fit and healthy are running the motor.

If you have no gas in the gas tank the car is not going to move! How are you supposed to function when you are too tired from not eating? How are your internal organs supposed to function without any fuel? When you have no food the fat cells are STILL GROWING. Remember they are cells. The minute you eat your fat cells will absorb the fat like crazy. Not eating is good for one of two things. Not eating is a good way to get fatter or die.

Nature did not make you fat. It gave you a gas tank. You’re suppose to put fuel in the gas tank. And then you move. And the tank sends fuel to the muscle. There is nothing wrong with the gas tank. It’s the gas station attendant who keeps overfilling it. Don’t blame the gas tank.

Want to be unhealthy fast? Try a crash diet. Cutting down on calories too fast and too low can actually increase your chances of hurting yourself. There is nothing "wrong" with a calorie restricted diet however not all calories are create equal. Be certain you are getting the nutrients your cells need.
Eating very little and getting very few nutrients can actually increase your metabolism and decrease the strength of your bones. When you are on a weight loss plan be certain to incorporate weight training as it will increase your metabolism and strengthen your bones. Remember that no matter what method you use to lose weight, if you do not alter your attitude,beliefs and habits--it will only be temporary. 5% of people who lose weight by any given method will keep it off for the rest of their lives. The rest will continue the cycle. For real change both your physical and mental self should exercise and eat healthy.

One of the best and well-known quotes is the boy scout "be prepared." I think this is one of the best advice you can give especially when it comes to being healthy. Part of being responsible for the health of you body is thinking ahead.

If you know you are going to a party where there may be snacks than simply eat healthy before, don't arrive hungry. If you are working late or find yourself working through lunch often, pack a healthy brown bag lunch. It may not be the most exciting meal but it will keep you from inhaling an unhealthy take out. If you have a no time to prepare breakfast in the morning, do it the night before. These suggestions may seem logical but I am amused at how many people do not make the effort. Taking five to ten minutes to think and prepare ahead, will keep you healthy and slim for years. Isn't your health worth ten minutes?

As human beings we are effected by the vibrations of sounds. Our words are based on the combination of sounds that represent a thought. In other words, what you say is a reflection or mirror of your thoughts. You express your thoughts in words.

You have heard the old clichĂ©, "be careful what you wish for, you just may get it." It may seem at times that words almost take on a life of their own. This is because they are in a sense. When you read words you create an internal representation of it. Much in the same way if you chose to say things like “I just look at a piece of cake and gain five pounds”, you are creating an internal response to the words themselves. You chose that statement and soon it becomes ingrained into your unconscious mind. The unconscious mind then begins to respond to it.
