Wishful Thinking

An apple a day keeps the doctor away
Old adage we play over and over in our head
Perfect diet begins a little eat this-not that
Realization before us several types of fat
Necessity guidelines now to follow
Become cautious of food you swallow
Play the weight loss game, stop watering the weeds
Begin planting flower beds for thinner you lies ahead
Measuring spoons and cups in pastel colors
Add to the equation sandwich sized plates 
Me thinks you've officially opened one dieting gate
Moderation and portion process determine winning fate
Foods once loved now on forbidden list
Mind frame change desire in place for twist
Healthier decisions successful partakes
Grab that nice red apple, pass on slice of gold cake
Refuse mediocre rather strive accomplish best
Important knowledge pass not fail each test
Beware fast food's corrupt culture surrounds 
Gather healthy information sources everywhere found
Follow your heart chase healthier you dream
Proceed determination weight loss transformation
Complaints aside conquer the quest gain benefits
Deprivation of unhealthy foods a present to self 
Happier too full of life rather than half loved you.
