      As a healthcare practitioner who deals with a lot of chronic pain patients, I have seen this paradox at work in how people recover (or not) from chronic pain syndromes. Those who focus on being able to do more and on getting healthier typically do much better than the people who desperately search for a way of getting rid of the pain. The more people allow their pain to dominate their thoughts, the more pain they experience, and the more disabled they tend to become.

      "Do not resolve to eat less, resolve to eat differently." Absolutely! There are so many healthier foods out there that are just as great-tasting and filling as some of the ones less good for you. With the internet you can find a billion recipes and books about healthier meals. You can still indulge now and then - my downfall is potato chips - but transitioning to an overall better diet obviously has its benefits.
