All my life, I have struggled with health and nutrition. I was a hefty kid, a skinny tween, a hefty teen, a skinny college kid... and on and on and on.
The one thing that has been consistent in my life is my inconsistency with eating right and exercising. If there's a freak diet plan out there, I've tried it. Or, at least, considered it.
What can I say? I'm always looking for an easy way out because "hey, eat less crap and move around a bit more than you usually do" is just so much work I don't want to do.
Well, the Cracked channel on YouTube gets my pain and decided to do me a solid by showing me the diet commercial I should have seen all my life.
In this video ad, the smiling, friendly narrator tells it like it is. And you know what? He's right. Every last damn word of it is right.
And I think that most of us dieters are aware of the cold, hard truth when it comes to dieting and lifestyle.
Every plan is essentially repackaging the same core concept: put less in than you burn off. Or keep that in balance if you want to stay the same.
Such an easy concept that is so hard to enact, am I right? Well, that's what last year's resolutions were for, right?
