I found this quote by La Rochefoucauld and couldn’t help but share it.
“To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art”
The reason most of us struggle with the concept of healthy eating is because we haven’t learned the art of eating. We all assume that it’s about chewing on carrot, celery and living off boiled food. That is far from the truth. You can still eat your favourite food, the trick is watching your portion sizes.
Think about it this way, when you get told that you shouldn’t eat starch and chocolate it suddenly becomes all you think about. Maybe you can stay away from it for a certain period but you will eventually “cheat” and when you do, it will be as if you’ve never eaten it your entire life. It will lead to a relapse.
So instead of the whole chocolate slab have 3 or 4 blocks. Have that mash but just a spoon as opposed tom filling half the plate with it. Before you know it, you will soon adjust to the portion sizes and reap the benefits of healthy eating while enjoying the food you love.
For those of us who love celery sticks and carrots let’s keep enjoying them.
