The reason most diets fail is because one can
not go from one style of eating to another
without dislocation and depression.
You’ve seen people lose weight then gain it back,
because the root problem is their relationship
Some people eat when they are depressed. Until
they stop eating when they are depressed, they
will always put back the weight they’ve lost.
Some people find the slightest hunger pang a
terrifying experience. They will never be
able to lose weight until they can no longer
see being hungry as imminent death.
Some people don’t know when to stop eating.
If you put a pound of food on their plate,
they will eat it.
If they bought smaller plates and took smaller
portions, their problem would be solved.
Before you enter a diet, simply understand why
you are eating. Deal with that problem first.
Perhaps if you take up a hobby which occupies
your hands, then when you are upset, you will
turn to your hobby, not the fridge.
Perhaps if you accepted hunger pangs, ignored
them or drank water, setting yourself a time to
eat and not eating until that time, you would
be able to overcome your fear of starvation.
Perhaps if you were capable of dividing the food
on your plate and saving a portion for tomorrow,
you would not be the human garbage disposal.
Changing your relationship to eating is how you
begin a diet and maintain your new weight.
The next thing is to go in stages.
Slowly removing certain things from your diet, such
as soft drinks. Substitute water.
Don’t order a soft drink, order water. Break yourself
into the habit of drinking water. It is good for you,
good for your body, your complexion, as sodas are not.
Forget dessert. You don’t need it. You’ve eaten your
food, you don’t need that cake or candy.
Take wash outs; that is spend one day a week, at the
beginning of your diet, detoxing.
Stop eating on a Friday afternoon, take your ‘wash out’
in the evening, spend Saturday visiting the little room,
while consuming nothing but unsweetened fruit juice.
On Sunday break your fast with a little
whole grain cereal followed by light meals.
When you are dieting, begin each phase with a
Remove items in slow and steady pace, not all at
once. Beef and Pork and the smartest as both have
a great deal of fat. By using the Turkey substitutes
to pork you cut calories.
Cut down on your intake, if you normally have two pieces
of bread, have one.
Substitute; If you normally have a cheese burger for
lunch, have a salad.
It doesn’t matter what you ate before, eat less of
it now. You want to shrink your stomach and appetite.
Once you’ve gotten control of your stomach and
your relationship to food, then you can embark
on a diet, knowing you will be successful
