Eating is not a hobby!

I just read a great post on NeoWeight
that discusses that if eating is a hobby of yours, you probably are overweight and if you don't make some changes, you probably will stay that weight. It makes some excellent points:
1. The reason many people are overweight and always are going to be overweight is because they have made eating a too big part of their lives.
2.
Eating will not bring you long term happiness in life.
3.
Get some hobbies, live happier, (make it so your life does not revolve around food!) and lose weight as a result!

I know that I have been a culprit. As I am striving to change my life, I notice that as I take up new hobbies and stay busy, I am less inclined to think about food.

all of those points are definitely true!!! i used to plan my meals and when i ate them, so everything always revolved around food. once i started doing other things, i have to make time for food.

Wow, this is pretty profound. I never thought of it that way but that's true.

Eating (or rather, thoughts of eating) take up far more of my time and energy than I would like. Will definitely be checking out that link, thanks!
