Did you know the word diet is a derivative of the Latin word diaeta?
Guess what it means …
It means “a manner of living” or “a way of life”
It doesn’t mean restriction, suffering or short term.
They may not have had the Internet, or a thousand years of medical and scientific research backing them up, but the ancient Greeks actually knew a LOT about dieting.
The next time you’re speaking to someone who’s looking to lose weight – ask them how their diet is going.
In all likelihood, they’ll look at you sheepishly and tell you they quit. Often within a day or two. Nearly always within the first week.
Modern man has got dieting all wrong. It’s not a program you work through. It’s not something you hit hard for a week, a month just to look good in shorts during the summer season, or to be able to wear your skinny mini black dress during the holidays.
c It is a work in progress that’s going to take years to master, and a lifetime to perfect.
