Get Up and Go

Guest Post By: Chris Steurer
 

When it comes to dieting, exercising, and just overall staying healthy, many of us would probably be classified as insane! How many times have you tried the same or very similar diets over and over again? How about the exercise routine you are doing, is it actually working and making results? Often times, we won’t even notice that we are beating ourselves up over something so silly and obvious, try something new!

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

-Albert Einstein

DO SOMETHING!

Do Something. If it works, do more of it. If it doesn’t, do something else.

-Franklin Roosevelt

Our former president sums things up pretty well for us in a simple quote. The point is, it doesn’t really matter what you do, it just matters that you are doing something. If and/or when that something stops working, then try something else!

Kirstie Alley’s Weight For Fame

Kirstie AlleyKirstie has been down this road before. First it was with her TV series, “Fat Actress” where she documents her battle of obesity. Then it was Jenny Craig’s massive paycheck which helped to keep the weight off by using their diet.

Finally Kirstie went through weeks and weeks of rehearsals for dancing on the hit show, “Dancing With The Stars”.

And just weeks after the very fast weight loss, Kirstie has her own diet that she is promoting to the public.

The problem lies in the fact that Kirstie has always used the wrong motivation to lose her weight. If it’s not for the money, then it’s for the fame.

If Kirstie made healthy choices that she could abide by, then it wouldn’t be such a problem. But the motivation remains financial and for fame.

Without it, she would most likely return to emotional eating and land herself back to square one.

I do wish Kirstie success, but I question if she is the right person to create a diet program. It seems too soon and without testimonials it can cause a very likely dangerous proposition.

She claims that she worked with scientists to come up with this new diet plan. To be honest, I think the scientific community has been at this a lot longer with very little success. Perhaps instead of talking with the researchers, she should try talking to others that suffer from the same disease.

You might get some real answers. You might get real results.
