The Basics


Welcome to Eat Yourself Slim, my very first blog. I’m glad you stopped by. You may be wondering, “What the heck is this chick talking about, ‘eat yourself slim?’ ” Good question, and here’s the answer:

Most people understand that in order to lose weight a person has to diet. And overweight people go on diets all the time. Yet there are more obese people than ever in America. What the…?

Diets don’t work. What finally worked for me was taking charge of what goes down my own gullet. I don’t know what’s in a McDonald’s Big Mac–I mean I know theoretically, but do I really know, know? NO! Therefore if I eat it, I’m not in control of my own nutrition.

This purpose of this blog is to share with you what worked for me: Taking charge of my own care, instead of leaving it to amateurs. If you don’t eat, and eat properly, you will never lose weight permanently. Let’s win this battle–together! 🙂
