DID YOU KNOW….

December: 

Nearly 80 percent of women (and 70 percent of men) in the U. S. suffer from food guilt, according to a 2015 survey.  Silence your inner calorie critic and eat regret-free with this advice: 

1) Lose the Labels. Quit using words like “cheat”, “bad”, or “junk” to categorize food items.  Instead, tune in to how foods fuel your body and make you feel after you eat them.

2) Lift Limits.  Having strict food rules or a do-not-eat list may leave you wracked with guilt whenever you fall short.  Try to live by the adage “everything in moderation”: you won’t yearn for the treats as much if they’re not so forbidden in your mind.

3) Don’t Dwell.  One less than perfect plate doesn’t mean you failed; just acknowledge what you ate and remind yourself that one meal makes a tiny impact in the long run-then move on.
