Atkins diet, Grapefruit Diet, Lo-Carb, No-Carb, Ice Cream Diet, Donut Diet. It’s enough to make ya crazy. Even such seemingly reasonable claims as organic, all-natural, and local can get elevated to cult status. How to make sense of it all?? There’s no money to be made in it, but the truth of the matter is the best “diet” of all is one that’s heavy on common sense and light on wishful thinking. A couple of my rules of the eating road: If I can’t pronounce it, I probably shouldn’t eat it. Avoid oxymoronic food: fat-free french fries, sugar-free cookies. When all else fails, I try to embrace moderation…just one donut. Got food tips of your own? Share em with us!

I think that what you posted was actually very logical. But, what about this?
what if you were to create a killer headline? I am not suggesting your information is not good., but suppose you added a post title to maybe grab a person’s attention? I mean Food as Fad |
Timeout with T9 is kinda boring. You should look at Yahoo’s home page and watch
how they create post headlines to get viewers to open the links.
You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab readers
interested about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it might bring your website a
little bit more interesting.
Eating mindfully is the most useful and life changing tip that has been shared with me. I was taking a course in Kabat-Zinn Mindfulness Meditation for other reasons but the most profound exercise was the one where we learned to eat mindfully. What I took from it was this: Figure out what hunger actually feels like. Then, be present minded when I am eating. Lastly, when I eat something, be it an apple or a doughnut, I make sure it is a conscious choice rather then an impulsive one. IT sounds like a lot of work but after 21 or so days, it became my M.O.
Title Nine rules!
Eat at least one color at meals and with snacks-think ROY G BIV for selecting foods.
Dieting shouldn’t be about reaching an abstract “ideal” number. It should be the acceptance of one’s own body in whatever shape you were blessed with, in whatever level of health you are comfortable. Treat yourself right, love yourself, and you will find happiness.
I lost 91lbs on Weight Watchers when I was 18 years old. 10 years later, I’ve kept most of it off and have chosen to live more healthfully. Not only am I able to maintain my weight, but I feel better about what I’m choosing to eat, how fit I am (not a surfer, but a runner, “newbie” cyclist and am joining an adult kickball league this Spring!). I’m glad I was able to share:-)
