Food was meant to be enjoyed and to nourish your body. The thought of thinking that it is your enemy, under any circumstances is ridiculous! When food is treated like the necessity that it is, it can be your best friend! It only becomes your enemy when it's abused. But if you think about it, that's pretty much the story with anything!
One of the biggest concerns that you face about food, is daily calorie intake. When you plan your meals ahead of time and know how many calories that you are allowed daily, it's pretty easy. You can then plan to treat yourself. Because if you know how many calories you have to work with, you could cut back on other parts of your meal and then make up for it with a couple of cookies for example. Do not deprive yourself of desired foods!
Whenever you deprive yourself, it's to easy to over eat. When you over eat, this leads to health problems and becoming overweight! I'm sure you can see where I'm going with this. Stop looking at dieting as a punishment and think of it as a controlled meal plan. Before you just eat what you feel like eating, simply be very much aware of what's going into your body. Do your homework before hand, by planning your healthy delicious meals, you will be amazed how enjoyable a planned meal plan can be.
It's important to remember, the worst thing you can do when trying to lose weight, is to get caught up on all the things that you feel you cannot do! Especially foods that you enjoy. Did you know that when you've reached your daily calorie intake and you feel like you want to eat more, going for a nice walk could even help you to curve that appetite! Sounds crazy I know, but it works like magic.
