For most people, dieting means restricting, cutting back, abstaining, and sacrificing. It means purging your pantry of all the foods you love, and replacing them with less flavorful, less fulfilling, less happy-making foods.
It could mean passing on dessert - not even allowing yourself a bite - because you’re afraid you’ll lose control.
It could mean settling for a glass of water, when what you really want is a glass of lemonade.
It usually means slapping yourself on the wrist when you “break” your diet rules.
What’s missing? Compassion.
When you’re dieting, you’re typically in a state of high alert, paying close attention to what foods you come across, and whether those foods are “safe” or “dangerous” to be around.
In order to break your unhealthy food habits, you have to shift from strict dieting to relaxed eating.
