QUICKLINKS AND VIEW OPITONS

Only two kinds of people ever say they are : starving people and fat people. Lean people say only that they are . I offer this as an example of the way fat people sabotage their effort to lose weight by using the wrong words.
Another example. Lean adults say they a snack. Fat people say they it. What’s the difference? If you want something and there’s a good reason not to have it, you don’t get it. But if you crave it, oh well then, it’s all right to get it; even, you have to get it. "Want" is a grown-up word. "Crave" is the word of a petulant child.
Another example. Lean people never speak of a specific food as a or a , not to themselves and not to their children. They don’t bargain with food. In fact they don’t talk much about food at all, except around mealtimes, for the good reason that food is not the focus of their life.
