Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat Review
So many diets tell you that if you want to lose weight you need to get tons of exercise and stop eating all of your favorite foods.
Put away that Frappuccino and get a green smoothie. No more baked potatoes, instead eat kale chips.
While healthy eating choices are important, you’re not going to be happy cutting out all of your favorite foods. It’s important to change your habits so you make healthier choices but still get to enjoy the foods you love.
Otherwise how will these new lifestyle choices stick in the long run?
You can’t lose weight and keep it off if you keep falling off track an inevitability if you don’t indulge your cravings every now and then.
Denying your cravings now will lead to binging later. It leads to guilt. It leads to yo-yoing.
Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could stop cutting out foods you enjoy, never leave the table hungry, stop following rigid diet rules, and still lose weight?
“Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat” is a book on something called “mindful eating.”
It’s all about listening to your body. Your body knows what it needs and it’s trying to tell you, but first you need to learn how to listen.
When I first heard about this book I thought it was too good to be true. Losing weight without following a diet plan?
But once I started reading I realized that it’s all about listening to the queues your body gives you so you can eat the foods you love but still lose weight.
The biggest thing this book helped with was binge eating.
It’s a common struggle.
You get so tired of denying yourself that you just say screw it and eat all of the pizza or ice cream you can.
Because why not? It’s just one day.
From there you slide downhill because one day turns into two days and a week or a month. Next thing you know you’ve gained 5 pounds and are totally off track.
The entire book focuses on creating a healthy relationship with food so it’s no longer a struggle to make healthy choices.
A lot of the reviews I read before I checked out the book myself hailed it as the “death of dieting” and I’ve got to say… I get where they’re coming from.
The entire book tells you it’s time to stop counting calories and telling yourself no. It’s time to stop feeling guilty when you have a slice of pie or go out to eat with your friends.
Best of all, this book is comprehensive without being too lengthy. You won’t be left wanting for information. The author gives you all of the tools you need for success.
