Diet Is A Four Letter Word Or How I Quit Dieting And Learned To Love Myself

No Diets For Me

I will not promote diets per say on my site. As I’ve indicated quite clearly in my various descriptions about Plus Size Lingerie, women are beautiful just as they are whether skinny, curvy, or anything in between!

Diets Don’t Work

Ok, ok, so some work temporarily but then what happens? You get into a slump and it all goes to pot. Many diets are so artificial and imbalanced that you can’t continue on them for long and can be a real hazard to your health. I have personally tried all kinds of diets from grapefruit, cabbage soup, high protein, and even the kind I would recommend (ie the balanced, everyday food you can get from the grocery store and eat that way for life kind). What happens in the end? Just what I mentioned, everything is great and then something happens, a relationship breakup, someone close dies, my friend moves away, I have to get a root canal. Sometimes it can just be a string of small things and the old patterns get irresistibly triggered. That’s when I put away the tight plus size leather and pull out the stretchy BBW baby dolls.

So What Does Work

I’ve come to the conclusion, that instead of beating ourselves up for being curvier than perhaps we’d like, we will do better to learn how to simply love ourselves and treat our bodies with love and care. Instead of counting calories, agonizing over choices, feeling deprived or frustrated, we start making wiser choices and adding them naturally into our everyday lives. There may be times when you could choose that great chocolate caramel cheese cake or an apple. Well that may be the day you have a small piece of chocolate caramel cheese cake and enjoy every bite. Just don’t do it every day. Start replacing plain white bread with multigrain bread. Add colors to your diet with fruit and vegetables – lots of bright colors mean antioxidants and other great nutritional benefits. Start moving your body more – walk, get on a stationary bike, swim or take yoga or swimercise. Take the pressure off yourselfmake wise choices slowly and let them become a habit. In the meantime keep loving yourself just as you are.

Life Goes On

Life doesn’t stop while we go on some diet to change what we don’t like about ourselves. Our bodies do exactly what they are designed to do. Too many calories and too little exercise – they store fat for a time of need. Certain diet choices too many times ie sugar, fats, additives etc and the immune system starts to react – usually with inflammations leading to arthritis, heart disease, diabetes etc. The problem, I feel, is deeper than dieting can help. The solution is within each one of us. It’s learning to know and love ourselves, to break out of old and useless patterns and actually start living as the amazing beings we all are. In the meantime, slip into some sexy plus size lingerie and thank your amazing body for all it does for you.
