Lahdeedah's Super Secret

So here is the thing that keeps me straight all day long, and not giving in to cravings...

You are what you eat.

So every time I pick something up, I think, do I want to be this?

For instance, sugary cereal. Do I want to be a big sugary blob? No.
Kashi whole grain cereal. Do I want to be thin stalks of wheat and happy grain? Yes.
Big refined bag of white flour? No. (i.e. good bye white bread and processed foods)
Light, ethereal mass of floaty cous cous? Yes.
Fresh, bright eggplant? Yes.

Okay some of it is the language, but you know, it works!

And when I get hungry, I drink a glass of water before I eat... that also helps.

Like you know, I KNOW that this information is not new, but it's the only thing that helped things 'click' for me, so now I'm seeing results.

That's a good way of looking at food.

You have a great attitude. Love the way you think. I will try to drink a glass of water before meals. I am not much of a water drinker. Fortunately my children love to drink water.
