The reason I'm writing this is, beacause I'm a bit fed up to see millions of different diets out there promising people to lose weight almost instantly (Yeha right) we have the Atkins diet, weight watchers diet, TLC diet, Macrobiotic diet... and the list goes on and on and every year the industry invents more bollocks to create 'THE DIET OF THE YEAR‘ I'm also feed up to see young girls getting into eating disorders, or every other woman in this planet worring about their weight and having some sort issue with food. I don't think is right.
The true is, that diets don't work in the long terms, you might lose a few pounds at the beginning but then you will put it back again at some point, so why is this? Lacking of will power to stick to a diet that is making you never lose weight in the long run. I don't think so...
The problem is the bad education we are receiving constatly about food, like if food were our enemy. Things like:
'Don't eat bread, wheat makes you fat, don't eat chocolates, don't eat carbs after 5 otherwise you will have an obese ass, if you eat apples and chicken at the same time you won't be able to digested!...I mean is true that some people is intolerant to certain foods, but come on!
You might think, who do you think you are, the next nutritionist guru, well no. I'm not, but I have suffer from eating disorder in my teens and after many years of fighting against food, I learnt that FOOD ISN'T THE ENEMY. The enemy is our own negative thoughts.
We need to wash up our brain from all the crap and make peace with our bodies, don't trust the media, listen to your body. The human body is very wise and knows what it needs, life is truly a gift and nature give us all what we need to function.
Have you heard of intuitive eating?
We were born with all the wisdom you need for eating intuitively. This inner wisdom is often clouded by years of dieting and food myths that abound in our culture.
-Eat colourful, it's amazing how in nature we can find food with high nutrients, superfoods like: Kale, acai berry, spinach, bananas, berries, etc.. all so tasty and colourful.
-Eat tasty, add herbs, spices, all sort of textures to your food, this will live you more satisfied and things, like onion, garlic, parsley, chili, rosemary are so tasty and also have a lot of anti-oxidant properties.
-Eat like your grandma used to eat, homemade food, homemade cake, bread, the real stuff. The only thing I try to avoid is processed food, low fat stuff or diet stuff with aditives high in salt and sugar but even that if I fancy having a bag of crisps/chocolate, I just have it.
-Eating for an emotional hunger will only make you feel worse in the long run.
