Learning to Live Our Diet
By Jennifer A. Mason, LCSW LMFT LISW-S
If we continue to do the same things we have always done, we will continue to get the same results. It is essential that we do everything we can to remember it is not a diet that will make the difference in our lives. A diet can be nothing more than food normally eaten for the purpose of maintaining good health. I should not be seen as a restrictive set of food principles for a designated period of time. We have to learn to “live our diet.” This is the only life we are going to have. We alone are responsible for how we choose to live it. Once we make this choice, we can begin to move forward to break the cycle. We have to do the work; one or two pounds a week as a short term objective until we have reached a long term goal -learning to live our diet.
