Perfect Weight Forever


  The superior man makes the difficulty to be overcome his first interest; success comes only later.

--Confucius, Analects, c. 500 B.C.

After you've attained your weight goal, it's only natural to worry about whether you'll be able to stay thin, especially if you've dieted before and later regained all the weight you lost. Friends who greet you with a cheery ``Say, you've lost a lot of weight. Now, can you keep it off?'' hardly contribute to your peace of mind.

In fact, there is no reason for anxiety about gaining back the weight you've just lost. Most people regain weight after dieting for the very same reason they were overweight in the first place: their appetite doesn't tell them how much to eat. Unlike most dieters, you not only know the cause of the problem, you have a solution for it: a feedback system, an eat watch. What's more, since it's just allowed you to lose weight you have no reason to doubt its reliability. Now we'll see how the eat watch that guided your weight loss can guarantee you'll never need to diet again.
