Did you make a New Year’s resolution this year? Like many people perhaps you vowed to lose 20, 30, 50 or 100 pounds. I used to do the same thing but would get so frustrated because somehow the pounds always found their way back to me. Not anymore. I have lost the weight. I’ve kept it off and guess what? This goal was accomplished with NO DIETS, pills or potions! Many people have asked, “What is your secret?” We’ll, I will tell you…
In a nutshell, to end the agony of the vicious yo-yo diet cycle, you have to go deeper. When we diet, no matter how great we look, no matter how great we feel, we don’t deal with our relationship to food at the same time and that is why we end up back at square one time and time again.
My passion is to show you how you can have a lifestyle change that can be maintained.
When we are satisfied on a primary level, we don’t use food in a negative way. Primary “food” is not food at all. Rather it is satisfaction, comfort, love, inspiration or contentment. It nourishes us on a much deeper level and therefore we end up only eating when we are hungry and not when we feel a void or dissatisfaction in areas such as relationships or careers. Let me explain this further through a little example:
Remember when you were a child playing outside with friends. At dinnertime your mother more than likely had to remind you to come in and eat. As children, we all lived on primary “food”. It was the playing and laughing and running that satisfied us … so much so that we had to be reminded to eat at meal time.
As adults, primary “food” could be a relationship where we are deeply in love or working passionately on a project. The fun, excitement and love of daily life have the power to feed us so that literal food (vegetables, fruit, meat, etc.) becomes secondary.
Now think of a time when you were depressed, or your self-esteem was low; you were starving for comfort or love or excitement. You may have turned to junk food or comfort food to try and fill the void. Did it work? Or did you feel even worse as a result? I believe that junk food or bingeing is a false friend. It appears to be an easy fix but, in reality it only digs us deeper into a hole.
