Food is necessary to enable the human body to function properly. In many cultures, food is scarce. I recently saw Frank McCourt, the author of Angela’s Ashes (a book I loved), on a television show talking about his childhood and hearing that people in America were actually dieting to lose weight. He commented that he didn’t understand the concept as he spent almost his entire childhood in Ireland hungry and at times starving. Our bodies have not made us overweight. Our behavior has made us overweight.
One night I was flipping channels and came across the movie Cast Away. In it, Tom Hanks plays a plumpish Federal Express employee who survives a plane crash and ends up on an uninhabited tropical island. Because he has to hunt his own food and physically perform all the labor required to survive, he loses weight. In order to realistically depict the passage of time, production was halted for six months to enable Tom Hanks to shed weight to bring his physical appearance in line with his character’s new environment and behavior. Clearly, his body had not made him overweight; his behavior had. The movie depicted this reality. You can do the same with your reality. It’s your behavior. You control it.
