But then you gained it back.
You did the healthy rite of passage by planning your new year’s resolution to make a “new year, new you”. And just as you were supposed to, you gave up on that resolution at the start of February.
It was kind of easy because all of your co-workers were talking about how quickly they failed, and at least you lasted longer than them.
So if resolutions don’t work, and diets don’t last then what exactly am I supposed to do to be healthy?
We’re all begging for those ‘5 tips to enjoy your food and enjoy your health’ – but do you really want to know?
FIRST, a little more realistic sarcasm.
You’re so good.
You don’t eat unhealthy foods… until you do.
And then… you do.
You restrict until your physiological need to eat overpowers your mental capacity to starve yourself. And that’s when you binge.
You clean out the cabinets, you order the Uber Eats, or you head to your local grocer and you get whatever you want!
Then you think, “why can’t I eat whatever I want and be thin?! Aimee does!”
You believe you’ve been cursed by the body gods, and you’re trapped in this physical misrepresentation of who you really are.
I mean, for real.
You love bread, just like Oprah and you don’t even eat carbs.
I mean, you only eat good carbs — the beans, nuts, seeds, whole grains, vegetables.
You don’t even eat after 6pm.
You tried being vegan after watching that documentary and it worked! I mean, it worked for a week, until you got tired of eating broccoli and spaghetti with marinara sauce.
But after a week you got tired of it because you ran out of other good ideas of foods to eat that don’t have meat. And you were SO good, I mean, you didn’t even use that old bottle of Parmesan cheese you have sitting in your fridge during that week.
You were SO good!
But it didn’t stick. So what are you supposed to do?
