Although the name of this website was conceived as a partly ironic response to the current obsession by the media with weight loss documentaries that inadvertently appear to reinforce the notion that taking extreme and unhealthy weight loss measures works, superskinnyme.com is very much intended as a healthy, holistic science-based source of information for anyone looking for answers. I have two bachelor’s degrees, in the sciences, and have a special interest in human nutrition, exercise, preventative medicine and physical anthropology.
The philosophy of superskinnyme.com is that lasting weight loss is possible through education. Permanent weight loss requires insight into current behaviors that have led to weight gain, an understanding of a lifestyle conducive to weight loss and a willingness to take action. Permanent weight loss requires a permanent change in lifestyle. Resorting to old habits results in weight regain and the old body. As Einstein once said, insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. The goal of superskinnyme.com is to support you in putting an end to the endless cycle of dieting and learn to embrace lifestyle changes.
It is also the intention of superskinnyme.com to foster understanding that, in terms of weight, all people are not the same. We each have a different susceptibility for weight gain and weight loss. In other words, some of us gain weight more easily than others and have a harder time losing weight. It is hoped that this awareness will not only help the reader appreciate the wonder and limitations of their own body, but of others; to reduce not only self-criticism, but the judging of others. That to achieve our goals some of us require greater motivation, determination, discipline and support. You cannot sink someone else’s end of the boat and keep your own afloat. Mutual encouragement, instead of disparagement to achieve a healthier body for all.
