Let’s Go Back To Math Class

I know, I know. You were told, “there’d be no math.”

Don’t worry; you won’t have to actually do any math; I just want to make an analogy to illustrate a point.

When you were learning math early on, you were probably taught the correct order of operations was PEMDAS–parenthesis, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction. You were taught that these needed to be done in this order, and you remembered it with clever sayings like Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally.

This was important. If you didn’t know the order and you came up against a complex equation, you’d have no idea how to solve it. Doing things out of order would not, generally, work out well for you. Assuming you could actually “solve” the equation, the answer would almost definitely not be correct. And, the process would be frustrating as hell.

Which brings us back to dieting, and my point.

As I said, making changes to your body is like an equation. Unlike math,…
