Lawyer's Diet

Lawyer’s Diet or Losing Weight on Minimum Commitments

In a broad sense, losing weight is a legal battle with yourself. You can try to shift the responsibility to nutritionists, diet recipes, to anyone and anything. The truth is that losing weight is a struggle. In this fight you have to defeat yourself. The main condition for victory is your concentration. Concentrate and you will succeed!

Before you start, ask yourself two questions:

  1. Do I want to lose weight?
  2. Do I intend to lose weight?

If you just want to lose weight, leave this page immediately. Desires that arise in your imagination can lead to anything, but not to losing weight.

If you really intend to lose weight, then read on.

The difference between desire and intention is about the same as between making a contract and performing it. You can enter into any contract, but without the action of the parties aimed at fulfilling the contract, the contract will remain a useless piece of paper.

Thus, intending to lose weight, you conclude a contract with yourself about losing weight and faithfully fulfill the terms of this contract (penalties at your discretion).

Under the weight loss contract, you undertake within 40 days:

  1. Drink at least 4 large glasses of water a day.
  2. Walk at least 4,000 steps.
  3. Consume no more than 400 calories at a time.
  4. Eat food no more than 4 times a day.
  5. Four hours should pass between meals (no more and no less).
  6. Drink but not eat within 40 minutes after waking up.

After each meal, you must set your culinary alarm clock (make an imaginary booking) for the next meal in 4 hours.

In this way, you have a legal four: 4×400 in 4 hours + 4000 steps – within 40 days.

The parties can extend the validity of the contract without warning each other.

Of course, consult your doctor before starting this legal diet.

We wish you success!
