It’s July 4th in the U.S. A day when we celebrate the country’s independence from external rule. What better time to declare your independence from dieting? Dieting is another form of external rule that causes all sorts of problems, many of them very serious. Here’s a “short” list of just 40 Reasons to Stop Dieting that we came up with at Green Mountain.
Declare your independence by signing our Declaration of Independence from Dieting. We’re not laughing at the plague of dieting with this rewrite of the US declaration. Instead, we’re taking a timely opportunity to build off the spirit of the season.
Have a happy 4th, friends in the US!
P.S. You don’t have to be a US citizen to sign our declaration!
