I owe all my loyal readers a huge apology - yes.... I haven't put out a newsletter in simply ages. Sorrrrrrrry! But the good news is that I've been working on a complete overhaul of the Ditch-diets-Live-light.com"website. Take a quick gander and please let me know how you think it looks.

Not only that but I've also been working hard at both re-packaging my existing products and creating a few more....you can see some of them here!

And I've also repackaged some of my free weight loss products too. I think they look so much more inviting!

Then, I've also been doing a load of work on both the childhood obesity and articles on weight for my mens pages. I have to say it's been wildly exciting to see all the changes.

Of course we all know it's that time of the year where we're all moaning and groaning about the extra layers we inevitably seem to have gained over the festive season. It's that time of the year when we're all reaching for those magazines that pull us in with their articles on dieting.

And the clock had hardly struck midnight before we started hearing about all those miraculous 'lose it quick' diets.

Now I want to tell you a story. Not so long ago I was on a business trip. It was a cold, very dark night and the rain was simply pelting down. Visability was dreadful and it felt like I was never going to reach my destination. But then a large towtruck overtook me and with gritted teeth and white knuckles I decided I was going to stick on his tail no matter what.

And so I did... windshield wipers going furiously at keeping all the spray and rain clear enough that I could see. Next thing I knew I saw a signpost that told me I wasn't where I thought I should be. Sure enough the tow truck had turned off the highway and was heading in a direction that I wasn't. For a desperate moment I felt lost and alone, an um.... just a tad bit foolish as well.

And then I realized something that made me laugh out loud. I'd been so intent on following the truck with the spray shooting onto my windwhield that I hadn't realized the rain had stopped.

It made me think back to those old dieting days. I followed whichever diet religiously, white knuckled and hardly noticing my surroundings. I traversed highways filled with self-criticism and loathing. I got stuck in a few cul-de-sacs like anorexia alley, restriction road and deprivation drive.

And then one day I woke up and realized that all diets did was to take me to places I didn't want to go. It was only when I realized this that the best weight loss plan had nothing to do with dieting.

With love and light

The Green Eating Guide

I am a university-bound teenager from the United States. Two years ago I was diagnosed with anorexia, a battle that eventually found me in the hospital.Dieting has robbed me of too much time. I found this website by chance. I've spent a lot of time browsing through articles and reading stories. It has changed my attitude and made me want to be MY ideal weight, not someone else's. Thank you to all the contributors and readers of Mind over Fatter. I deeply appreciate everything you do.(abridged by Cari)

Food Advertising Lies

It's easy in our society today to feel that our value is determined by the number on the scale. I am encouraged to change my mind so I can love myself for who I am not how much I weigh. Thank you so much for your website. It is such an inspiration to me!
Thank you! Rachel, USA
