Excerpt from Introduction
In my opinion, cooking and eating are among our greatest sources
of pleasure aside from them being a life necessity. Food Feeds
our Senses is one of my tips, and it does from our sight,
sense of smell, taste, and sense of texture when we eat. Yet, too
many of us are at odds with food. We love food, yet feel controlled
by it. It arouses fear, anxiety, and a host of negative emotions
along with the temporary pleasure we derive from it. Too many of
us are afraid to obsess about food, yet we do. Too many of us learned
somewhere down the line to feed our emotions with food, and I always
tell my clients that if overeating didnt have so many drawbacks
from the negative effects to our physical health, mental health,
and appearance, it would make a wonderful coping tool.
Today, women are more concerned with their health, weight, fitness
and appearance including anti-aging than ever before, and girls
are starting to diet earlier than ever before. Were also bombarded
with more nutrition information, more diets and dieting gimmicks
than ever before. Hence too many of us are more confused than ever
before about how to lose weight, keep it off and be healthy at the
same time. I read somewhere the saying that all diets work if we
work them, but Id like to say that not all diets are equal.
Not all diets lead to permanent weight loss, nor are all diets healthy.
We turn to doctors for credibility, or fitness gurus who look the
part, both leading us down a path that may or may not be credible.
Not all diets are satisfying either, and just the word diet
can stir up cravings for the most fattening high calorie dense foods.
I have witnessed this with some of my clients eating foods that
they dont particularly love just because they are the
restricted foods or the foods we customarily celebrate
with. I have listened to clients tell me that they avoid certain
foods that are known for their health benefits when they do want
to feed an emotional craving or celebrate, because healthy foods
dont meet the forbidden purpose. Hence I wrote, Its
in Our Perceptions, specifically addressing this.
I myself remember my first attempt at losing weight, but I dont
remember all the different diets and weight loss efforts I made
over the years; there were just too many to remember. I do remember
always being on a diet up until about a decade ago. Its
a Process is one of my mottos and looking back, I can apply
this to myself. Like so many young women, I had an ideal body image
in mind when I was a teen. Looking at the magazine models gave me
a specific picture of what I thought my body should look like. In
fact, as I tell my story later, youll read how at the age
of 16, I took drugs to lose. I spent much of my adult life on a
diet trying to match that body in the magazine until this last decade
where I found a way of eating that I enjoy, My Salad a Day.
It forms the foundation of my creative eating program, it maintains
my weight, I feel really good about, and best yet, it is not a diet,
a traditional one that is.
Im pleased to share my personal journey along with my professional
experience so that the process of finding a creative way of losing
is much shorter for you my reader than it was for me. Ive
worked with women from 10 Lbs. overweight to over 100 Lbs. overweight,
and we all share the ups and downs of finding a permanent weight
that we can feel good about. I often tell my clients that I have
rarely met a woman who feels great about her weight or body including
women who are not overweight, so for those of you who struggle with
weight issues, I do understand. I was overweight myself, and Im
here to say that it is never too late to start the change process.
The biggest changes in my body didnt begin until after 40,
so lets begin.
Ive compiled my best tips and more, to share how, without
dieting. I call it Creative Eating. I consider eating
an art, and finding a way to eat to lose as a challenge, hence Its
Not a Diet, Its Creative Eating. Ive written
this book so that it may be read cover to cover as well as read
by individual chapters that stand -alone to be used as a tool when
needed. Many times I repeat concepts in different tips, and you
will find recurrent themes, sayings, mottos and more, repeated throughout.
I call it gentle brainwashing! I love Creative
Eating and Not Dieting. My clients agree and I hope you my
reader will too. Photos by Anthony grasso Photography!
