Driving home from gymnastics with #2 son and as always conversation
moves to what shall we eat
Matteo – “Chips”
Me – “How about fish ’n’ chips”
Matteo – “YEAH FROM THE FISH BAR…”
So guess what I did?
Nope, I didn’t go home and make some ‘healthy’ version
that required x amount of ingredients I didn’t have,
Nor did I spend hours fighting back WILL (the inner voice of power)
I simply pulled into the Fenham Fish Bar on the way home and got
fish ’n’ chips for the whole family…
Loved every bite!
Great story eh?
Mental talk from a health professional.
I mean can you believe the audacity of me?
A healthy relationship with food???
Listen, I’ve done my time in the clean eaters bin claiming calories don’t matter
Spending all my time on a restrictive diet cycle and yet still dreaming of pizza,
like an addict or junky, counting the days until I could get back on the good stuff
(which usually involved a 3-4 week food and booze marathon to restore balance
piling back on the excess losing sight of the abs then starting it over again)
It’s hard to admit that for years I thought this was the only way.
Ever noticed how you’re always saying
“I’m doing ‘insert diet or regime here’ AGAIN…”
like I was,
^^^ that very phrase means that it hasn’t worked.
You didn’t change one single thing, you only managed to dampen
your true habits for a VERY LIMITED period of time.
THE BEST DIET IS THE ONE YOU CAN STICK TO…
So, considering that what we FEEL,
what we look like and what we do
are all brain events…
(ie. self contentment happens in the mind not at the site of weight loss)
Is it healthier to FEEL failure after falling off my restrictive diet
yet again and feeling like chucking it all in only to start the cycle again on Monday…
(yeah, we all know that moment)
Is it healthier to have a structure to my diet that allows for
these moments on a daily basis and still allows me to lose weight and get in great shape?
