I'm going to live my life!

Ask yourself, "Why do you eat?"

Do you "eat to live" or do you "live to eat"?

The answer to that question will go a long way in determining your health and happiness.

Whenever the subject of diet and lifestyle is brought up, my younger brother says, "I'm going to live my life!" Even though he has battled obesity most of his life, he's never liked the idea of having to make any changes in the area of diet and exercise.

Well, the other day I was talking on the telephone with my mother, who lives in North Carolina. During the conversation, she mentioned my brother now has type II diabetes.

Sticking a needle in your arm several times a day and taking medication. And hoping you don't one day have a stroke, heart attack, or worse.

What kind of life is that?
