I love food and I love life. I live for joy and enjoy
eating. The day I stopped dieting and I started eating what I wanted and living
to the fullest, was the day my weight stopped being an issue. I look forward to eating and enjoy
every bite. I also enjoy moving and dancing and using my body. I love the
feeling of health and life and love. I think about what I am going to eat from
the time I get up until I take my last bite of the day. I live to eat and enjoy
food and the pleasure of dining. I wonder who I am going to eat with, what new
restaurants or recipes I want to try. I have fun traveling and eating around
the world. I enjoy a variety of cuisines and love every minute of my meals. How
sad that we live in a world where people feel that in order to lose weight, get
healthy, prevent disease they have to deprive themselves of one of the greatest
pleasures of life food and eating.
I love these quotes:
“Eating is not merely
a material pleasure. Eating well gives a spectacular joy to life and
contributes immensely to goodwill and happy companionship. It is of great
importance to the morale.” Elsa Schiaparelli Italian designer
“Never fit a dress to the body but train the
body to fit the dress” – Elsa Schiaparelli –
The act of eating and dining out is a time not only to
satisfy your own hunger, but to share an experience with others. At a time when
the world is threatened by acts of terrorism and we live in fear, there needs
to be a time when you can let go of fear, yet mealtimes are often the most
fearful part of the day for many. Instead of enjoying food and the pleasure of
eating, this time is often filled with guilt and fear.
My work with weight management and lifestyle change examines
the underlying beliefs, philosophies, and motivations that affect our relationship
to food and whether food becomes a pleasure for the body or a poison creating
unhealth and unhealthy habits.
I ask my clients and readers four questions: What are you
eating? What are you drinking? What are you doing? And What are you thinking?
Thinking is most important.
I will be offering a series of classes and Blog Talk Radio
shows around the idea of food, focus, mindfulness, and liberated living for
peace and joy.
I hope many of you join me!
