The Balancing Act | Having A Plan
This is for sure a topic that stirs up a lot of emotions so the goal of this episode is to give you some “food for thought”, to offer you some new perspectives that will hopefully shift your mindset around weight and that four-letter word D I E T!
I’m hoping to help you see an approach on this topic with fresh eyes. You might be interested to know that the word D I E T comes from an ancient Greek word “diaita,” which means “way of life.”
So perhaps “way of life” is a better and more accurate way to think of it because these days, D I E T conjures up thoughts of restricting food intake, eating sparingly, and for many people, deprivation and hunger. Ugg!
In Dr. Christiane Northrup’s book “Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom”, she says that
“Our entire culture promotes dietary schizophrenia. Women’s magazines tell us how to “Take 10 lbs off Fast” and in the same issue they talk about “Five Chocolate Recipes Your Family Will Love You For”.
An insatiable market looks weekly for the next diet because the real issues underlying the why are never addressed! You're invited to join me in a discussion where I'll share insights and provide actionable information on:
- Making the decision
- Having a strong why
- Identifying the goal(s)
- Knowing the trigger(s)
- Having a plan
This information is not abstract, it has helped and continues to help me live a healthy and balanced lifestyle without feeling out of control and I do hope it can be useful on your wellness journey.
Healthy Regards & Happy Listening!
