Recently I was contacted by Micah, weight loss blogger. He manages the Thintopia blog. This man is on a mission to find what really works when trying to lose weight. Anyone who knows me, knows that I look at food and weight pretty differently than a lot of other health experts. I’m a believer that it’s important to focus on finding balance and consistency with nutrition and exercise. (Not such a glitzy message, eh?) I’m more concerned with finding habits that last a lifetime rather than weight loss and numbers. I truly believe that when we eat well and exercise in a moderate way, our weight finds a place that is healthy.
You can check out the interview on the Thintopia Blog. But here’s the take-home:
- Food is meant to fuel our bodies and brains.
- I believe in enjoying food. So let’s take the time to taste it rather than gulp it.
- Eliminating foods and food groups leads to an endless pattern of restricting and binging. Learning how to eat moderately is a process and may require outside support.
- Food journals can be a great tool to understand your eating patterns and provide accountability
The interview is about 20 minutes. If you watch or listen, let me know what you think!
