A few years ago I was shocked to see a skeletal photo of Victoria Beckham, in which she looked like a drought victim. She was at death's bed and she looked like a death's head. According to her, she was lean, thin, a walking skeleton and so attractive. According to me, she looked like nothing on earth, but would fit in very well with the skeletons on Halloween.Oh, now just look at this, just what is mentally wrong with this girl? She is already skeletal, but she is still obsessed with her weight. Looks like she is suffering from an eating disorder, possibly anorexia or bulimia, as well as psychological problems like low self-esteem.This book is going to tell you all about how you can lose weight, through proper eating, and a healthy diet, not healthy dieting. There is a difference. I am not going to talk to you about any sort of dieting. Because that leads to malnutrition. That leads to nutritional loss.The term dieting actually does not refer to losing weight, even though it has become synonymous with it now. Dieting actually began as a term for the nutrition you consumed in a day. That means the food you ate, every day, and not something that you did for a short period of time, or as a temporary measure to detoxify your body.Dieting absolutely does not mean that your body should be deprived of any sort of nourishment and nutrition, which it needs to keep itself functioning properly and normally. Dieting does not mean that you starve yourself voluntarily, because you want to be as thin as that supermodel, who is a drug addict and an alcoholic and is surviving on weight loss pills, recommended to her by her dietitian instead of eating oriole honest-to-goodness healthy meal, three times a day. Like any sensible, normal, natural really healthy, person not obsessed with his or her weight would do.You can see by the way the clothes fall around her (the model on the next page) that this particular supermodel has already begun to go in for a zero fat diet. Her main aim is to look like a walking skeleton. Her job entails this sort of body image. She may consider it very glamorous and people may envy her this sort of lifestyle. But because she is not eating a balanced diet, throughout her life, within the next five years, she will not have enough of energy to work physically, concentrate mentally or do any sort of normal activity, later on in life.
