The first time I meet a client, I will often tell them this fact:
We need to eat for two reasons:
1. For nutrition (energy to allow our body to survive)
2. For enjoyment (food tastes GOOOOOD!)
Many diets and weight loss programmes try and minimise or eliminate the second reason. As if healthy living means you can only eat for nutrition. In an ideal world maybe that’s true, but in practice, a diet that doesn’t acknowledge the enjoyment aspect of food is doomed to failure.
Who wants to spend the rest of their life depriving themselves of enjoyable foods?
But on the other hand, I’m sure if you look at your diet now, you’ll notice that there is lots of food you eat that neither provides you with nutritious value nor gives you any enjoyment.
Think of polishing off the rest of that chocolate bar, even though you felt you’d had enough after a few bites.
This kind of extra eating is what we can cut out, and you won’t even notice it. You’ll still be enjoying your food, just eating less unnecessary calories.
