So what is my problem with diets, you may ask? For starters, they force you to think about food and eating ALL the time.  

Heidi, a participant in one of my workshops shared a great anecdote about how consumed our culture is with dieting.  

"On Tuesday night I attended a social function with some very nice women from my neighborhood. Four out of five were talking about how they shouldn’t eat the goodies the hostess had set out. One could only eat nuts because she was on the 9th day of the South Beach diet. Another one was adamant that we not 'let her' eat after 7:00 PM. Another woman was discussing which diet she was going to try next. All were frustrated, if not exasperated. I felt like telling the hostess not to put out any food next time because it caused so much turmoil. I am glad that I am out of that mindset now!"

People seem to have the misguided belief that in order to manage their weight, they must think and talk about it all of the time. But thinking and talking about food (especially not eating food) only makes you want to eat it more, doesn't it?
