Understanding your food history is the lifestyle solution to successful weight control and weight loss! I am convinced of this! Two quotes that have changed my entire thinking on this matter are:
Both of these quotes come from my favorite diet book, The Thin Commandments Diet by Stephen Gullo! It's a life changing book! He stresses that it is not will power that will help you to lose weight and keep it off, but strategies! I love this! Practicality wins out!
Knowing your food history should be your goal! It's ridiculous to gain back your weight, with the same foods, on the same days of the week, at the same times, over and over again! But that is what we all do!
You do not need a complete diet makeover! Quit dieting! Look at your personal history with food and evaluate how you have gained weight! Figure out your patterns of eating and devise simple strategies that work! No one's history is the same, and no one uses food the same way, or lives in the same environment!
Evaluate your food history and each place that you come in contact with food and strategize! That is what each person needs to do! Get help if you can't figure it out yourself!
You will be looking for:
Your personal food history will show you all of your unique eating patterns and how you deal with food in your life. You are predictable in what you do! You should be able to use your food history and develop healthy diet habits to use in your predictable food situations, times, behaviors and with specific foods! Small lifestyle solutions that are specific to you will help you to win at weight loss!
