Reimagine your Diet: More Abundance, Less Restriction

I don’t usually wake up starving.

In fact, I don’t get hungry for a few hours after I wake up and if I’m not careful I will forget and skip breakfast all together!

Unless it is Yom Kippur of course, the one day out of the year that I agree to fast.

Inevitably, I wake up not only starving, but craving pancakes! I don’t even eat pancakes!

Why is it that when we restrict ourselves we want more of the very thing we have forbidden ourselves from?

Well, it is a matter of psychology.

As the saying goes, we always want what we can’t have.

This is exactly why diet mentality does not work, because it emphasizes restriction which invariably makes us want the ‘forbidden” 😈

What if we shifted our concept of diet to one of abundance? Eating so much of what serves you, so that there is less room, less desire for that which does not?

This mindset moves us away from forbidden foods (restriction) to a mindset focused on abundance, viewing each meal as an opportunity to get the most nutrients that we can.

What if we thought of each meal as an opportunity to get the most nutrients that we can?

As I share with my patients, it’s not that you can’t order uber eats, drink that second (or third) glass of wine, or end each meal with a dessert… You’re a grown adult, you can eat whatever you want!

But perhaps you would not want to eat that way knowing that you were taking up space for the kind of food that could truly nourish you.

It’s not about what we are allowed (or not allowed to do), it is about what we choose to do. It is a choice to nourish ourselves mind and body.
