So many people have a perverted view of what healthy food and eating is all about.

In the Season Five premier of the television sitcom "The Office," the corporate office sponsors a competition between all of the branches of their company to see which branch can collectively lose the most weight over the course of eight weeks. In the middle of the challenge, when the weight loss is not going well, one of the characters exclaims, "I can't do this by myself, people! Come on! Kelly and I are the only ones who have either passed out or almost passed out!"

Sadly, that sentiment is only funny because it echoes the beliefs of many people when it comes to diet and weight loss - no pain, no gain. If you're not starving, if you don't feel like you're dying or going crazy, if you haven't almost passed out - then you must not be doing it right. Right?

In order to be healthy and effective, an eating program must be balanced. Any eating program that is too extreme on any front - extremely low in carbohydrates, extremely low in fat, or extremely low in calories - is not only bad for your body but ineffective in the long run.

If you want to achieve weight loss in a way that is healthy and long term, then you need to employ common sense. If something feels torturous to your body, chances are it is.

It absolutely is possible to get healthy and feel great doing it.
