On average we spend about 26 years of our life dieting. We try one extreme diet after another only to shoot our metabolism in the foot and end up heavier than when we started and more frustrated than ever. The result with time is that our confidence plummets along side the belief that we are destined to be fat. Luckily, nothing could be further from the truth. You are not destined to be fat and your cause is not one that’s lost.
