Ditch the scales!
I did a very small survey on Facebook last week asking what was the worst diet you’ve ever done?
I had some fascinating replies from the cabbage diet, Hollywood diet, eating 5 apples a day for 3 weeks, gallbladder cleanse……the list goes on.
Upshot being that diets don’t work. At the best you’ll lose a few pounds, at the worst you could make yourself ill, mentally and physically and screw up your metabolism at the same time.
I’ve always been an intuitive eater rather than a controlled eater. Maybe that’s why I’ve never had any issues with my weight. Also don’t remember the last time I weighed myself either. If my clothes start to feel a bit tighter (or my bras start to feel tighter!) I’ll just adjust what I’m eating accordingly.
Ditch the scales and get more in touch with how your own body FEELS. After eating certain foods, do you feel bloated or do you feel healthy and energised?
