An onion can make people cry, but there has never been a vegetable invented to make them laugh. ~Will Rogers

Everyone wants to eat. Something yummy! I actually would love to know what your favorite food is? Please feel free to post it in the comments. No matter what you are eating, no one wants to feel guilty about eating. If it is something we need to do, then we should probably make it pleasurable. I find that as Americans in general, we feel the need to limit our diets and feel its not healthy if we are not eliminating something. People will try to eliminate fats, carbs, protein (depending on the fad of the day), sugar, cholestrol, meat, plants and on and on. When you eat this way you have a tendancy to stress about what you are going to eat or rather leave behind so that the guilt does not follow. Stress does play a role in our overall weight. In addition, after stressing about not eating whatever it was you left behind at some point you will go back, eat your guilty food and over eat it because you waited so long. Probably not the best solution if you are trying to make some changes.
I suggest trying to add food into your diet. Why not? Be adventurous and try something new. Add in a veggie a day. May be try a veggie you have not ever had before. Try adding in an extra glass of water a day. Try adding in one piece of fruit. obvioulsy, don't forget to add in breakfast, dinner and supper. Skipping meals has never been healthy. I personally like to snack on fruit and veggies becuase they are crunchy, quench my thirst and are yummy. One new thing a week or a day is much less irritating than not having your favorite food. By adding in breakfast or even just an extra fruit you will be on a journey that makes you feel better, crave less processed foods. If you know what foods are throwing you off track, eat smaller portions and save for a special occasion.
