What is your Calostat?

Your calostat is an amazingly powerful way to make decisions affecting how trim you are.

It is based on the fact that one pound of fat equates to about 3,500 calories. Fudging the maths only slightly, 10 calories/day equates to one pound of fat per year.

That’s your calostat. 10 calories/day comes to one pound of fat per year. Pop that into your success journal.

Now 10 calories is about one fifth of a teaspoon of oil, about a quarter of a teaspoon of butter or margarine, less than a sixth of an apple, and less than a tenth of what your cornflake makers think you should have for breakfast. In other words it’s tiny, tiny, tiny!

Two astonishing facts become clear from this.

First, for your body to keep constant weight over the course of a year it’s balancing mechanism must be superb.

Second, and more importantly, getting trim and staying trim can be done by making a set of small and easy changes. That’s the smart and easy way to do it. That’s how to do it for the rest of your life. That’s LoLtrim, a Lifetime of Life trim!

Tomorrow is Decision Day. Who is in charge of your destiny?
