For those of you who are working on your thin mentality, and sending me questions, please know that they are good questions- you are trying to actually make this work in your life!
I am working to re-vamp my website to offer more help in actually establishing your thin mentality. It will be a few more weeks, but, just to let you know.
So, in the meantime, please keep reading and honestly re-reading my book and blogs. You will absorb more if you read and some of your questions will be answered in those blogs.
As you are working hard to change your perspective, remember that your cravings, hunger etc are part of you, and in time, they will become more predictable when you start paying attention to them. This is normal. You have been trained to believe that it is good to ignore your body. Yes, it is hardest in the beginning when you have no idea at all what or when or how much you need!
That doesn’t last long though, you will get better and better at it-
You will come to learn what kind of food you should buy based on your experience with your own preferences. The stress you are feeling about doing this thin mentality thing “just right” is a remnant of your diet mentality. Just focus on progress, not perfection.
Your food/diet obsession is a result of a really distorted view of food and eating. This which was brought on by a culture that promotes a distorted view of food and eating! Your obsession is actually a very normal reaction to this abnormal cultural bias that has usurped Mother Nature in favor of making people think they need to diet to be thin.
Stop dieting and obsessing. You were not born to be fat. You were born to be a nice, healthy weight. Get there by rejecting that diet mentality that I imagine is very very strong in many of you.
Recognize that what you thought was the answer- rigid rules- is actually the problem. One cookie doesn’t mean you should eat ten because you blew it. A couple of cookies isn’t evil. Ditch that “all or none” mentality.
It takes time to assimilate your thin mentality into your life. But I promise, it is worth it.
Let go of your diet mentality and re-connect with the way Mother Nature intended you to eat-in response to true hunger. Take away the obsessive mentality and.. the obsessive behavior GOES AWAY!!
