Positive Nutrition Today!

Are you searching for the perfect dieting solution? Try being positive today! In my opinion, people who are more successful with weight loss and weight management view their habits in the glass half full manner. We all know the human body does not fare well with deprivation and feelings of guilt! Build a healthier habit today – and view it in a positive way!

Do you focus more on the foods you need to avoid each day? When planning your dinner meal you get angry because you believe you should have a salad over the slice of pizza? By thinking about these different feelings – we can determine our eating style! The eating style that was most linked in research to obesity was known as “restrictive overeating”. The feelings of restriction resulting in overeating and guilt feelings post consumption. Restrictive diets are very difficult to maintain in the long term, resulting in overconsumption in the future and weight gain!

Does this mean the solution to all of our dieting problems is to allow ourselves to eat endlessly without any feelings of guilt and wrongdoing? No! We need to understand the basics of healthy eating for weight management and practice them. At the same time, we need to understand how to live it! Live it = choose healthier foods because they are better for us. Find ways to make healthy foods taste good and how YOU prefer to eat them! Enjoy it. Love it.

Start today by viewing your nutritional glass as half full! Enforce positive change and focus on that! Make changes you can live with. If everyone is eating pizza for dinner – have one or two slices, but also incorporate veggies and a low calorie fruit and fat free pudding dessert! (Just because we love veggies and fruits, and they are good for us!). By focusing on the foods we should be eating, we can limit feelings of wrongdoing and feel better about our eating. We will also naturally eat less of the bad foods if we focus on easy we can get all of our veggie, fruit, lean meat and whole grain servings in each day!
