The first definition is the true meaning of the word. The way we eat is our diet, singular. But the weight loss and diet food industries have convinced you it’s really the second. That throughout your life you will go on many diets, plural, for 2 days, 2 weeks, or a month, hoping to melt away a lifetime’s worth of overeating so you can fit into a dress for one night.
Then go right back to eating the way you always have and gain it back.
Then you go on another ‘diet.’
The food industry has created ‘diet’ foods like low-fat cookies and sugar-free candy out of chemicals. Cookies and candy are supposed to be occasional treats at best, not daily parts of a balanced diet. And these companies have convinced you that you ought to be able to eat these things as much as you want and maintain a low weight. They’ve created a false claim and you’ve accepted the blame for it not working.
I saw an advert for a particular brand of ice cream. It says:
“Enjoy a health-conscious ice cream that’s low sugar, low calorie, low glycemic, and low carbohydrate. Plus, it’s high in protein and packed with anti-inflammatory goodness.”
Listen, Smart Girl, the only goodness ice cream is supposed to be packed with is cream. That’s why it’s called ice cream.
You may be eating fruits and vegetables and you’re still heavier than you want to be – maybe for you it’s not what you eat but how often. Or maybe it’s not what you eat at all…
Here’s a little food for thought – The cause of your being overweight is not what you’re eating as much as what you’re thinking. This is what’s causing you to overeat.
