I don't eat that!
Wednesday, August 22, 2012
I was listening to the radio on my way into work and they were talking about research where they found that people had more sucess maintaining a healthy weight if they said " I don't eat that" vs " I can't eat that". Now I'm not one to say certian foods should be eliminated but I could see how having this mindset would not leave you feeling deprived but empowered.
The disc jockey's were men and compared it to the question of wearing a dress. He said " I know my reply would be I don't wear that not I can't wear that" I could just see my husband's face if this question was presented to him and I chucked.
So next time I am tempted to eat something I know will not fit into the changes I'm trying to make I will remember "I don't eat that"
