Be honest about dieting

For the person who recognises the nature of food and the importance of nutrition, there is no conflict, no resistance.
They do not want to eat cake.
They would rather be slim and healthy.

Dieting is only a chore if you have doubts, resistance, conflict. Confusion.

Think deeply about what you want.
Look at the pros and cons.
Decide what you want to do.
Determine if this is really what you want.

If you earnestly want to eat well, then changing your diet is a joyful experience, not an ordeal.
