Do something Friday....finding moderation

Yesterday, the question was "How do you feel about spending this holiday season learning how to eat in moderation?"

If you have even the tiniest inclination in that direction, I encourage you to start practicing today!

Start by cutting out anything that doesn't look fantastic.  There are a myriad of options in what to eat.  It will require more planning but you can make a commitment to eating only food you love.  Because food you love is more scarce than regular food, most people who eat this way end up eating less.

"But wait!" I hear you saying now....."if I only eat stuff that looks fantastic, I'll eat too much!"

(don't kid yourself -- chances are, if you're reading this blog, you may very well already be eating too much!)

This is where a second skill comes in.  You need to only eat what tastes fantastic.

Even the most delicious food ever created will stop tasting fantastic at some point.  If you want to learn moderation, you have to be willing to take the time to actually taste the food you're eating.  When you are no longer hungry (which is different than being full), food loses its fantastic taste.  That is when you put down the fork!

Most (maybe all) of my clients don't believe this will truly work.  But the ones who develop these two skills are the ones who never have to diet again.  Are you interested in being included in that group??  Then get practicing just these two things!

(and if you're interested in being coached through the holidays, feel free to send me an email and we can talk!)
