Bashing a Common Diet Belief: No More “Bad” Foodsby Sonja Rose on Jun. 23, 2010, under Health
Remember that food is here on the earth for our tastebuds to enjoy. I follow a few simple guidelines, which helps in living the thin lifestyle.
1) Don’t eat the whole thing.
2) Stop before the entire bag is gone.
3) Only eat a few bites of the candy bar, piece of cake, piece of pie, etc.
4) Throw the rest away.
5) Toss the rest of the casserole/cake/other tempting item, if it’s going to cause you a problem. Dump it in the trash. Close the trash bag and take it to the outside trash. Throw it down the garabage disposal.
6) Don’t take leftovers home.
7) Eat some off of your companion’s plate; don’t order an entire order for yourself.
8) Eat a few spoonfuls of whatever you want off the buffet table.
The first time my husband took me to a buffet in Las Vegas, I came back from the dessert bar with a sampling of many types of desserts. There was apple pie, five types of cookies, fudge cake, raspberry pastries, cream puffs, and key lime pie. I was juggling them on a big plate, and when I saw the shocked look on his face, I figured he thought I was going to actually consume them all in their entirety.
I assured him that I was only going to sample them all, and that he was welcome to try them with me.
I told him about a very thin French woman, Mireille Guiliano, that food was put on this planet for our enjoyment, and that there are no bad foods.
Food is fun. Not torture. And you can eat whatever you want — and still stay thin.
