…Hunger and Fullness!
Weighing and measuring food, counting calories or trying to follow a strict meal plan doesn’t work for me. It never has and it never will. In fact, I’ve never really seen it work in the long term for anyone! I struggled for years with feelings of failure, thinking something was wrong with me because I believed that in order to be successful at weight management, I was suppose to stick to a diet or some type of rigid meal plan.
Over the years, I have come to understand that the real reason measuring food and counting calories didn’t work for me was because it made me feel controlled rather than giving me the feeling of being in control… Every cell in my being resisted the feeling of being told what, when, and how much to eat. So after a while I would find a reason to quit the plan and feel bad about myself in the process.
That was so yesterday….
Now, I regulate my eating with what I know to be true for me….my body’s own sensations of hunger and fullness. Yes, it’s built right in (your very own internal GPS!) My body guides me with how much I need to eat, when, and even what! It’s fool proof and the best part: I grow stronger and more confident in myself every day.
Using your body’s innate wisdom is The REAL Skinny. It will change your approach to weight management and your life forever!
You liked the part about being in control rather than
being controlled, didn’t you?……. Me too!!
