Dieters : Put MORE Focus on Food
If you're always on a diet you probably spend half your life
thinking about food - what you can eat and what you can't,
what you'd like to eat if only it was allowed, what you'll
have for your next meal, what you shouldn't have eaten at
the last one...
The last thing you think you need is to spend more time
thinking about the seductive addictive substance that lies
at the root cause of your weight problems...
But I'd like to offer an alternative viewpoint.
What if you focused on the quality of your food as well as
the quantity? What if you decided that you would only eat
the very finest, most delicious and nutritious food
available - food that was good for your body as well as your
taste buds? And enough of it at every meal to feel
pleasantly satisfied. Wouldn't dieting get a lot easier to
Now you may doubt that such food exists but you only have to
look at the myriad of available low-fat low-calorie recipe
books to see that delicious and nutritious real food is
available to anyone who is willing to make the effort to
seek it out and cook it.
The secret of losing weight without losing heart after a
week is to look for those recipes that you will personally
enjoy. Build up your own collection of winners that you can
enjoy for the rest of your life.
Of course you can overeat on healthy delicious food as well
as you can on junk but it's a lot easier to stick with
modest portions when you cook and serve yourself just the
right amount - you don't have to fill your plate like they
do in a restaurant. And because you know you can cook the
same delicious dish again at any time and that you have
planned something just as delightful for your very next
meal, it's hard to feel deprived by stopping at the point
where you are satisfied rather than stuffed.
My own personal collection of recipes has stood me in good
stead over the years and I am forever experimenting and
looking for new ones to make meals even more exciting. Does
your food match up? Why not add a few recipes to your
repertoire this week and for the next few weeks. Keep it
simple if you're not used to cooking. Some of the best
recipes I have take just 10 minutes - faster than you can
order in a pizza.
Weight loss has never tasted so good.
