That's why DIETS are out and LIFESTYLE CHANGES are in!

very true! I agree with teale...a diet is just to lose weight and go back to your old behaviors...changing your life and your habits is just that. changing your life.

I agree :) diets are dead and gone. The most important thing is to change our perception of life and make small but permenant changes to our eating and activity.
