Dealing with overeating
5th January, 2010
I'll be publishing various articles about weight issues over the coming months. I want to introduce you to a life without diets...
So we’ve entered the New Year and over my breakfast this morning I heard an advert on the radio for a diet of some sort, I have no idea which diet but it reminded me of how much pressure there is around us after the Christmas festivities. It’s not new, for as long as I can remember the new year brings the glut of ‘Z’ list celebrities promoting their latest offerings of how to lose inches, weight, the flab...If I remember rightly we also see, at a later date, that the said celebrity is still struggling with weight or other issues, so sad that all this gets played out in the magazines or papers. Then there are the special offers and promises of weight loss by joining this club or that. You may be just about to embark on yet another diet. STOP, just for a moment.
There is an alternative...
I wonder if you’ve thought about ditching dieting for good and understanding why you eat the way that you do?
Have you ever looked into the void that you fill to the brim with food?
Have you reached the point where you are ready to look at the alternatives and take control over your life and food.?
If you are ready you’ll look for something different perhaps you've found it.
