E180: Module 3, Lesson 2
*This lesson contains adult language.
Diets are a multi-billion dollar industry. Because they work? No, because they don't. In fact, one study showed that over 2/3 of dieters (66% or more!) gain back their original weight plus additional pounds. Unfortunately, most dieters blame themselves and, eventually, go on another diet (which keeps the diet industry booming). Even if you're not on a diet right now, even if you're super out of shape and don't eat that well, you think about what you should be doing differently a lot, don't you? I get it...I used to be obsessed with my "health" (rules, rules, rules). It got to a point where health was my life instead of making a life from my health. In this lesson, we discuss our culture's unhealthy obsession with health. We also talk about why you eat the Oreo when you swore to yourself you wouldn't and how our culture has totally misconstrued the concept of delayed gratification.
