You ever wonder what thin people do that you don’t? Maybe you can learn some of their habits and try to convert them into your own, so that you can reach your weight loss goals. After all, life is short and you only have one chance to get it right. Losing a few pounds can make all the difference, help you to avoid serious health problems and even help you psychologically.
ABC News came up with a list of habits that skinny people live by. We recommend taking a peek, especially if your old approach isn’t working the way you might have hoped.
Imagine a group of scientists in a food laboratory on a dark and stormy night. “Eureka!” one cries out. “I’ve created the superfood that will end disease as we know it!”
Soon, the food additive is being blended into everything, from cookies to fast-food burgers, as scientists are certain it will help us all live longer and healthier.
Now, imagine that years later, we discover the superfood is, in fact, a monster food—an additive so toxic that, over time, it wildly increases our risk for heart disease, stroke, cancer, and obesity. And—Ay, caramba!—it’s already inside us all!
Sound like a made-for-TBS movie? It’s not. It’s the story of trans fat, a dangerous, man-made lipid that was believed to be healthier than regular fats. We bought the lie until the mid-’90s, when a study in the American Journal of Public Health indicted trans fats for no fewer than 30,000 annual deaths. The worst part: They’re still in our food today!
