intuitive eating - the crazy train

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

For all my spark friends that are on a good thing, this probably is not for you.
Any who have gain-lose-gain and binge/restrict patterns, you might find this enlightening.
I did!

When she says that we binge because we know we can always lose weight later - a light bulb went on in my head. It might have even been accompanied by a 'bing' noise!
So if we commit to never dieting again, then we won't binge because we know we can't diet to 'fix' it - so we only eat what we need to the time. That makes soooooo much sense to me!

    Many thanks - I watched a couple of her videos - fascinating and a bit of a mind-shift

    That's why I love Spark. It's not another diet. It's learning how to eat healthily and develop a healthy lifestyle. So, I went over my calories today but it's not going to mess me up for the rest of my life. It was just a detour.

    Blessings to YOU as you exchange bad habits for good.
