We would have more fun, eat more healthfully, and be thinner if we reconnected with our thin mentalities.
Frequently, over concern about nutrition gets in the way, because we don’t believe that we can be trusted to know what to eat. So we have made such drudgery out of it! We count calories, food groups, measure our portions. Ugh!
If this is how you want to spend your time, money and energy- have at it! But with a thin mentality, you will be able to RELAX, and be thin and healthy.
You will find that:
- Your body leads you to all kinds of foods and good nutrition depending on what you need on any given day.
- Your food preferences will CHANGE in the absence of food rules- LOVE Cheetos? I thought I did. I very occasionally eat some, but now that I am free, those little orange puff balls have lost a little of their magic. (Still good, but just a few will do!)
- When food has no power over you, you feel powerful. This leads to all sorts wonderful side effects including happiness and improved self esteem and optimism.
- You will have more time and energy for other more important and fulfilling endeavors- Career? Children? Cleaning? Music? Whatever, you choose!
So, yes nutrition is important. But instead of force feeding it, let your body lead you to it. The reason you think you are inept in this area is because you see diet messaging everywhere you look that keeps reinforcing that you can’t be trusted to know what to eat.
I am telling you that you can. This is normal. What CANNOT be trusted is the messages from the diet industry.
Of course Mother Nature made us capable of knowing what, when and how much to eat. That is normal.
Check in frequently with this idea because you are bombarded with the opposite message from the good ole diet industry every single day of your life!
