Most of us have made or tried to
make a commitment to live
healthier lives by improving the
way we eat. Almost 33% of
Americans and an increasing
number of the British are obese.
66% of Americans are currently
following some form of weight
reduction diet, needless to say,
with little success.

Part of the reason so many of us
fail to successfully change the way
we eat is that we do not control
what we eat.  30-40-% of our
meals are eaten out---at fast food
restaurants mostly, but also at
sit-down eateries and family-style
restaurants.

When you eat out, few if any
restaurants have any information
at all on the amount of calories in
the plates they put before you.
None has any information on the
amount of saturated fat , salt or
sugar.

Without that information, you
have no chance of following an
effective diet plan.

In a real sense, when you
consume take-out or sit-down
meals in restaurants, you are
writing a blank check on your
health.

Studies show that thin people
prepare more of their meals than
those who are overweight. Could
it be that preparation of meals
makes us more conscious of what
we are ingesting?

Our advice: Prepare most of your
meals. Limit the amount you eat
out. Or, if that's not feasible for
your lifestyle, at least ask the chef
what he or she is putting in your
body.
