Healthy Eating

A diet rich in soy and whey protein, found in ...

I’ve tried to come up with a better word than “diet” … no one I know likes this word, especially me!  I mean, it has the word ‘die’ in it…how good is that?  And if you’re not eating right, the doc sends you to a nutritionist — and that word starts with ‘nut.’  LOL  So, what gives here?  Everyone one of them I’ve seen was over weight and they wanted me to eat more calories than I was — oh man!  So, I gained even more weight.  Now I really had my work cut out for me!

I paid attention to what my body was telling me…what it needed!  This was no easy chore.  I ate when it was hungry.  I ate more natural fresh foods.  I ate smaller meals.  I ate more frequently.  I really started to listen.  I soon realized when I craved a specific food, there was something I needed — so, once I had a few bites, the craving vanished.  Within a few months, I lost 40 pounds.  Amazing.  No diet fads.  Didn’t count calories.  And no bending over backward exercises.  Just listening! 

So, I refined a new “diet” for all that would listen.  Eat only fresh foods, no processed foods.  Eliminate animal fats as much as possible!  I know that’s hard to do, but try!!  When you shop at the grocery store — look at how they layout the store, everything in the middle is in cans and boxes that have expiration dates that will last a life time, only use those if you have to.  But eat what you crave and never starve yourself.

Do you have a better word than “diet?”
