I was squatting on the toilet (it builds leg muscles, okay?) in the locker room at the gym when I saw the flyer and had an official meltdown: "Super Slim Pomegranate... shed massive amounts of body weight... easy weight loss... new, easy solution to your perfect body... no dieting or gym requirements necessary for fast weight loss." slim pomegranate diet pills

Are you serious? People really fall with this stuff? And why would a gymnasium be promoting an item that discourages gym memberships? As my grandmother would say, "What is this world visiting?"

Then I came home, jumped on Facebook and found a promotion of Thin Stick, an item that is supposed to lessen cravings and promote weight loss.

Okay, I was seriously about to really have a major meltdown, when I picked up the latest issue of Intelligent Life and was transported to a place where real women eat real food without all the drama. Yes, I'm discussing France, where the women don't get fat, and they eat chocolate.

The French culture has instilled self-respect and self-love into the fabric of your respective life. It is a culture that doesn't mind indulging, realizing that food is one among many indulgences that can be found in an abundant universe. They decelerate and enjoy life, not decelerate good enough to eat, then beat themselves up, then work 80+ hours per week, and then feel guilty about not spending time with the kids, which has them rushing to the fridge to stuff another negative emotion down.

They trust the rhythm of life, but most importantly, they trust themselves.

However, our culture has taught us never to trust our innate wisdom. Instead, we turn to so-called "experts" who seem to own contradicting theories about how exactly to feed our bodies. We are treated like mad animals that need to be protected from ourselves. Why does it not believe that we can be trusted around a dish of brownies or mom's homemade mac and cheese? I'll inform you why. There is HUGE profit keeping us deprived and then unleashing us into a world of food where we're emotionally and physically starving. Then, like knights in the night time, they throw us a Thin Stick to truly save your day, which, in addition, isn't free.

Women (I'm screaming over here), learn how to trust yourselves and not the experts. That you don't need Super Slim or Thin Stick. Things you need is to love yourself, and sometimes meaning broccoli and other times, it might mean a bit of red velvet cake. Often times, it's not food at all, but a much deeper need that may never be filled if you're chasing "slimness" with a Thin Stick.

OK... I feel better now. The meltdown has concluded.
