Hunger Games

Being hungry is not a game. It is not funny and I see no virtue or merit in it. Unfortunately, it seems to be automatically associated with ‘losing weight’, aka ‘dieting’. It’s pretty hard to lose a reputation once earned, so the poor diet is much maligned.

What is it about our way of thinking that endures hunger or boredom or both whilst on ‘The Diet’? Is it a passive, almost subconscious punishment for being ‘bad girls’ (or boys) in gaining the weight in the first place?

Life is too short to find ways to beat ourselves up. Goodness knows it happens enough without adding to it.

I would like to suggest to you that if you are hungry on your diet, you’re on the wrong one. If you’re bored on your diet, change it. And if you’ve paid good money only to be instructed to eat just meat for one day, eating only bread for the next and then an entire day consuming apples or whatever, then jump ship. Don’t waste anymore of your time as well as your money.

Jump ship...
Lend me your ear (okay, eye…) you…don’t…have…to…be…hungry to successfully lose weight. Heck, you might even enjoy it so much you forget you’re on a diet and it becomes a lifestyle.

At the risk of sounding like a clanging bell, raw food or high raw food has to be the easiest, most pleasant, tastiest way to lose weight. I’d also bet it was cheaper than any diet program you could show me (except I don’t gamble – I’m a good girl).

If you’re ready to make the change or know someone who is, contact me. It would be a privilege to walk with you in what for so many is the bane of our lives – losing weight.

Is there something you’d like me to write about? Please email with suggested questions or topics.

  1. So true Christine, also you let out easy, quick, tasteful....
    Thanks Chrisitne S

  2. Quick is right. Someone who did the Seven Day Program said she thought the recipes looked long but was pleasantly surprised how quick it was. With most things you're in and out of the kitchen in 20 -30 minutes. Fast Food!
    Thanks for posting :-)

  3. I like the jump ship analogy. Sometimes it takes a lot of courage to change.
