2012 Healthy Eating Focus Week #4

Welcome to week four of my ten week Healthy Eating Series, to Kick off 2012!

To date, you have learned the importance of slowing down your eating, eating in a relaxed setting and meal cadence. You’ve also learned how all three of those things will boost your metabolism.

Just to recap, your first three Healthy Eating Focuses are:

1. Slow down when you eat.

2. Create a relaxed environment while you eat.

3. Create an eating rhythm with your eating times, as opposed to eating sporadically.

I believe you will really appreciate this week’s focus!

Focus #4 – Pleasure

Enjoy what you eat.  It is common for people to make food choices that they label as “bad,” and then feel guilty about eating it.  First of all, this adds to the stress that ultimately slows down in your metabolism, as discussed in Focus #2.

Unfortunately, we are beginning to label foods as being morally good or bad.  How about taking the labels away, and allow yourself the opportunity to enjoy a food or snack that pleases you?

As Marc David explains, “Fighting pleasure means fighting our natural biology and soul design, which deeply impacts health.”

This week I encourage you to strategically include pleasurable food in your diet.  This doesn’t mean lose control and have 3 scoops of ice cream everyday.  That is why the word “strategically” is placed in that sentence above.

For example, if you love chocolate, then allow yourself a small piece of chocolate everyday.  Allow yourself that freedom to find pleasure in what it is you enjoy.  Keep the amount small, but give yourself that treat.

So that is your assignment this week.  Include pleasurable foods in your diet!

Please feel free to pass this valuable information to your friends, family, and co-workers!

In Good Health,
