Reason #9: Diets Leave you Deeper in the Hole (but Peace with Food Brings You Freedom)
(Stay with us…Sunday is our last day of discussing “Why Diets Don’t Work”! We’ll be diving in to Peace with Food (PWF) on Monday!)
Last weekend, Lara’s daughter learned to ride her bike. Do you remember that feeling? Taking off those training wheels for the last time was liberating, wasn’t it?! That moment—when a loved one let go of your seat and you realized YOU. WERE. DOING. IT. –what a huge stepping stone in life that was. With every push of the pedal you felt the freeing sensation take over your mind and body. Your confidence began to soar and your heart experienced a new sense of happiness. The wind cooled your face as you accelerated with every push…the fresh air as you breathed in through your nose…and the smile on your face as you rode off into the sunset…Ah… sweet freedom…
This is Peace with Food, our dear friends. We know you may question if this type of life is truly attainable, but you have to trust us. It is. Like riding a bike, it will take time. You will fall down and have to dust yourself off a time or two. But like you know, you don’t have to do it alone. When you learned to ride your bike, you were guided by an experienced biker. They held the seat to keep your balance until you were ready to have them let go. Well we are here to do that for you too. We are going to give you the tools and support to have this peace and freedom we keep talking about. We will share with you the ways we’ve been able to stay the course, and before you know it, you too will be ready to ride into the wind…solo.
We know you are ready. We’ve really been hammering out why diets don’t work, and we are excited that you are so anxious to start applying Peace with Food. We’ll be doing that very, very soon. But as you know, diets are a quick fix because they can list a few rules that you can dreadfully follow for a few days. But if you want prolonged happiness it will require more time and participating in the entire process. There is a method to our madness, so stay with us. There is much more to come…
Peace with Food gives an amazing sense of freedom.
