The Struggle with Dieting
So many people view dieting as some sort of cosmic punishment for not having the perfect body. They believe that enjoying food is somehow bad for them, which couldn’t be further from the truth. If you want to be completely honest with yourself, when it comes to dieting, it isn’t about giving up food or flavor; it’s about discovering new foods and flavors. At least that is what it is for those who truly love food as well as adventure.
Dieting is far too often approached from the mindset of impending failure. Too many people have tried and failed so many diets in their past that they try the next new diet with the absolute knowledge that they will fail in this attempt as well. Guess what? They will.
Henry Ford once said, “If you think you can or think you can’t you will always be right.”
If you think you are going to fail at this diet you are dooming yourself to failure before you even deprive yourself of the first bite. Think about that before you begin because only a true masochist could find pleasure in perpetuating this vicious cycle without ever stopping to wonder why none of the other diets have worked for you. Henry Ford also said, “Failure is only the opportunity to begin again more intelligently”. In case you were wondering I would say his words are quite profound.
Seriously though, if you do not examine the reasons for your failures you are certainly dooming yourself to repeat them and if you are already planning to fail why on earth would you even try?
You are the only person who can take control of your need to eat.
You are the only one who can pay attention and notice when you are eating for emotional fulfillment and when you are eating from necessity.
You and you alone can get yourself out of your chair and on your feet.
You are the only one that can take the responsibility for the condition in which you find yourself.
There are medical exceptions but even in these situations if you are trying diet after diet and failing over and over again then you must at some point in time realize that it is quite likely not the diets that aren’t working.
How I Finally Found a Diet that Worked for Me
I won’t waste words here – I love food. I hate the thought of having to go without.
But, there’s deeper issues for me.
I’ve struggled with body dysmorphic disorder in the past and I had a borderline eating disorder.
