Telling people to simply lose weight, he tells me, “is physiologically impossible and it’s clinically dangerous. It’s a goal that’s not achievable.”
When people tell me it’s impossible to do something that I’ve just done I tend not to believe them.
I’ve not weighed myself at all but I’ve certainly lost three notches on the belt in the past 6 months. The doctor told me I had high blood pressure and I should lose weight. So, no sugar in coffee, the bottle of soda by the desk replaced with a bottle of soda water and a little more exercise (and it was only a little more).
Oh, and perhaps an apple to beat that afternoon slump rather than a choccie bar.
There could be all sorts of reasons why Lustig is correct but I’m sorry, personal experience just doesn’t lead me to believing that he can possibly be correct.
