Now that dieting is a thing of the past, people ask me, "So what do you eat?". the honest answer is: "Anything I want."
One definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results. That's the diet cycle in a nutshell.
Deprivation and white knuckle abstinence followed by overindulgence and binge eating. New diet, new trainer, new wonder drug and we try harder next time. More deprivation followed by more binging. Weight loss, weight gain.
The definition of sanity for those addicted to food or diets, then, would be something like this: "We are neither fighting it nor are we avoiding temptation. For us, the problem has been removed."
I eat whatever I want. By facing my feelings and fears head-on, my appetite changed. Yours can too!
