Nothing tastes like skinny feels ...


Lets agree to ditch all this cod, pseudy - often celebrity-fuelled b0ll0x shall we?

We are designed to eat, and to really enjoy food - how it looks, smells and tastes, the texture and the mouthfeel - it's all important.

We really have to get our heads in the game - because the long term goal surely must be that we find a healthy balance, each of us for our own selves. Sure there are some basic rules but in the end what works for me - works for me. My job is to figure that out and then get on with it.

I want a healthy balance that allows me to eat great food that tastes fantastic and nourishes my body at whatever age and level of activity I'm at. We cannot exist on diet bars and diet foods and denial and lack and pinchy, squinch and 'no-thankyous' and 'just a finger' for ever.

Chri$t I'd throw myself under the next 75 bus if I believed that was my lot for the rest of my four score and ten. I really would.

Sort out your cravings..

Reclaim your taste buds and get a grip on your cravings. You'll need to do some research and you 'll need to make a bit of a battle plan. I know I had to break the sugar/salt yoyo that was totally bnggering up my ability to really taste food properly. (I did this some years ago and then sort of back slid - but I'm all over it again this time around).

It had also interfered with my ability to figure out what I was truly hungry for. A key in long-term healthy eating. Our bodies are fkken incredible things - and we're designed to be able to make the right choices if we learn to tune in fully to what our body needs.

Thing is we override that with emotional tw@ttery and help that along with overloading our systems with two key signal killers - salt and sugar.

If you are addicted to processed foods - it's the salt and the sugar you are after - if you break your addiction to salt and sugar you will free yourself from much of the cravings for the foods that pile on the pounds if you're not managing them in moderation.

So don't deny yourself food - you are designed to enjoy it. But have a good long think about what kind of food is going to support you to be healthy and strong. To build good lean muscle, excellent teeth, beautiful glossy hair and dewy, glowing skin.

What about growing healthy babies, or running that 5k race? What food do you need to help you be the very best you - you can be? I'll bet it isn't a Big Mac and FKKEN fries!

By the same token - if you fancy one - then have it. Knowing what you need to do to keep yourself on the path - a little wander down a side road won't kill you.

There is nothing attractive about a starving human being.

There is nothing disciplined about foolish denial.

Skinny Schminny -  I want to be strong, healthy and there's no amount of dieting that will convince me I look better without b00bs or a big 'ol backside.

When you're curvy and fit - everything tastes great!

BTW: The quote is from Anna Wintour the po-face bob toting fashionista - who never smiles and has recently begun to speak out against skinny models - Oh really Anna - Care factor ZERO!
