For most of my adult life I have been "on a diet" I think I was on every one known to man and l lot more unknown ones. I joined clubs which involved spending a lot pf money with them. Any book or magazine with the magic word DIET in the title I would buy. Maybe this diet was the magic one for me.. Some did work but all the time it was Can't eat This or must do that/ So many restrictions.
Where was choice and free will? I could write a book on diets.
Now I do realize it's not something you can go on and off again if it doesn't have instant results. it has to be a way of life to eat healthily and do more activities. We all know the rules wont bore you with them.
When I am now asked "Are you on a diet?" when I refuse fattening food I reply no I want to stay with my way of eating and that suits me. Friends do try to push food onto us saying, one slice wont hurt you! Maybe not but will one slice be enough? Perhaps some strong minded people could stop at one slice but i prefer to say firmly NO thanks, it looks delicious but I don't eat cake or what ever the item is and ignore it then.
So I can say I am NOT ON A DIET but enjoying healthy eating for life. Ree
We are familiar with that phrase and know how true it is. I can now add another section to it.
I do love chocolate but of course being a healthy eater I limit my consumption. I was given a small section of chocolate last night. I savoured it taking tiny nibbles and enjoying every crumb as a rare treat. Then I had a dreadful sneezing attack. it went on and on, my eyes and nose were running. I felt worn out.. It could only have been the chocolate. Why? I have always been able to eat chocolate before. Was it my guardian angel telling me this is no good for you? What ever it is Chocolate is now off limits for me and so completes the well known phrase in the title. OR IT MAKES YOU SNEEZE
