Denial Dieting

Wednesday, July 29, 2009

Big thick triple cream fatty cheese! OMG I am SO excited! And the inspiration for today's introspection.

I'm not one of those who suscribes to "denial dieting." By which I mean, if there's a particular food I want, I eat some of used to be I ate all of it, but now I just have some of it and go about my business. I've found that it takes a lot of the pressure of this lifestyle change off me. I don't feel cheated, so I don't need to cheat!

It used to be I'd go for long periods of time denying myself foods I really enjoyed. Of course, I'd break and just binge, feel worthless and then comfort eat, commit to start over...cycle through the denial and binge, denial and binge. ugh.

This way is better. So tomorrow for lunch it's some fatty, delicious cheese with smoked salmon on wasa rye crispbreads!

    Yes! And a little bit of that good cheese is going to satisfy more than a bucket of no-fat pseudo cheese. It's a tough lesson to learn, that if I don't eat the things that satisfy, I'm far more likely to over eat, trying to make up for that lack of what I wanted in the first place. Life is too short not to eat good food...we just need to learn to eat a reasonable amount. I sometimes tell myself, "This isn't the last time you're ever going to get the chance to eat that..."
