TED Talk Tuesday

Are you currently struggling to stay committed to a diet plan, such as the “Whole Body 30”?

Does your body weight go up and down faster than a yo-yo can swing?

Are you so concerned with your diet that you void yourself of life’s simple pleasures?

Diets do not work. Practice mindful eating. 

Eat only when you are hungry and stop when you are full.

Enjoy life’s simple pleasures.

In Sandra Aamodt’s TEDTalk, Why Dieting Doesn’t Usually Work, she shares a personal story to outline an important lesson about how our brains manage our bodies, and why dieting is more likely to cause more harm than good.
