What if you were told to write down everything you ate, but complained that the diet wasn't working. Then they put you in jail and fed you only what was on that list for a week.
Would you lose any weight?
The experiment has been done. People lose weight when fed the food on their list.
Why? We lie to others, but sadly, we also lie to ourselves.
But this is true.
If you don't tell the truth, the truth will tell on you.
