Reason #5: There are more factors involved in your happiness and health than just the physical aspect.
One of the things we really disliked back in our dieting days was the way those diets made us feel.
In a nutshell – like lab rats.
They dictated when we could eat, what we could eat, and in some cases even where we were to eat. The setting was very controlled and the rules very strict. And there were no exceptions. Period.
And in theory, if you had no other factors influencing you, this might work. But as we all know, that’s just not the case.
Your kids have birthdays with cake and ice cream.
Thanksgiving does not get postponed just because you are on a diet.
And if your diet does occur after the new year, the Super Bowl still goes on as scheduled, along with the Super Bowl party complete with Buffalo wings, nachos, pizza, and chips.
No, life does not get cancelled just because we are on a diet.
So, what is one to do?
Here’s what we did: We embraced life as it is, with all the events that make it uniquely our life. And the only way we knew to do this is to pitch the diet and follow peace. When we learned to follow peace instead of a diet we learned a healthy balance of eating the foods we loved and moderation.
Your situation may be different than ours. Maybe you have a physical condition that restricts you from eating certain foods. Peace with Food for you may involve avoiding certain foods all-together or at the very least, limiting them. That is the beauty of Peace with Food. It is a customized plan that works uniquely for you!
If you are like we were back in our dieting days and are tired of being treated like a lab rat, why not give Peace with Food a try? Regardless your situation, you can find peace in the complex, yet wonderful thing called Your Life!
Embrace life as it is, with all the events that make it uniquely your life. How? Pitch the diet and follow peace.
