What would it feel like to come out of COVID19 feeling more confident in your food choices, better in your clothes, and primed to live a life you love? Right now you have an unparalleled opportunity to make lifestyle changes that will benefit you and your family long after shelter at home orders are a distant memory. Diets don’t work, but lifestyle (and foodstyle) changes do.
We’re all spending more time together at home. That means we actually have the opportunity to make those changes we’ve wanted to make for years, but life just kept getting in the way. The changes you make won’t just affect you; they’ll set in motion the steps to breaking the cycle of dieting that kids learn from their parents.
This isn’t about adopting some sort of perfect eating plan; there’s no such thing. It’s about becoming in-tune with your body and recognizing what you need. It’s not about deprivation, calorie counting, or someone else telling you what to eat and when. If you’ve ever been on the dieting merry-go-round you know it’s a losing proposition. Diets are short term answers to long term concerns. I’ve been there and I don’t want you to be slaves to any diet or the long-term damage they do.
What does undieting look like? It’s eating in ways that nourish your body. It’s also about enjoying gelato in Florence, pizza in New York, and a glass of wine with your besties. These are the things that make life awesome for me. Of course, it’s your life and you get to decide what awesome is for YOU.
