  • ​The Only Three Reasons To Eat

    My daughter Rachel, a competition-dancer and motion-picture-animator, taught me that in good dancing and good animation, there is an illusion of continuous motion, but what we really see and remember is a series of poses. The brain does not easily remember smooth motion itself.

    ​Similarly, when I teach people how to live, I know people won't retain a blizzard of words. It is the interspersed catch-phrases that have impact. They stop the conversation. The art lies in choosing which catch-phrases to use, how to link them together, how to build up to them, pausing on the other side and letting the phrase sink in. I monitor the results by observing body language and listening to the verbal response if there is one.

    For example, in some conversations I remind fat people that there are only three valid reasons to eat. (1) It's breakfast time. (2) It's lunch time. (3) It's supper time. Well... four reasons to eat. The fourth is, if you're genuinely hungry. But there are NO other valid reasons to eat. Fat people are caught short by this. I hit the target, and they know it. Skinny people are unmoved; they think, "Well duh, that's obvious."
