Indeed, it is the trade-off. Is it worth your health to not manage your food intake? It's a personal choice, but I'd rather manage my food intake. I know the risk to being obese and I know the method for losing weight. If I choose not to take the steps I need to take, I am choosing ill health. I've had enough health problems that were beyond my control. I don't need any more health issues, especially ones caused by over-eating or eating the wrong things b/c I am not paying attention.
It may not be so dramatic when extra weight is a vanity issue rather than medical but it really does all boil down to the trade-off.
Congratulations on the engagement! I am excited for you and I know you will be beaming as you walk down the aisle.
Calorie counting gave me a method to fix the madness.
A high protein, moderate carb balance gives me control over cravings.
