Bill's Diet Update

Bill had joined millions of other North American's in what I like to call 'the diet trap'. As you can see from the before and after pics of his 'diet' not much progress has been made. He keeps giving into his carb cravings....and his exercise routine has gone downhill. He keeps promising Auntie Crystal that he'll do pilates with her some morning, but of course, it's been a bunch of empty promises. Sometimes he pulls out his pilates mat and puts it by his door with good intentions, but usually it gets put away again or it just stays there and we all step over it for a few weeks. I know he pretends it doesn't bother him....but when his pants are getting tighter and his shirts are getting smaller I think deep down inside he knows he needs to make some changes. My advice to Bill is to just scrap the fad diets and just live a healthy lifestyle. I've seen how it's getting him down and discouraged. Eat sensibly, Bill. And instead of using the remote all the time, try to get up off the couch and change the channel that way.

I know the feeling, Bill. You just got to keep your evening eating down to a minimum. Try to eat more small meals instead of two or three large meals. And you might want to lay off the grapes.
