Diet and Stress or Stressful Diet

Mar 01, 2011 02:15AM ● By Dr. Terri Hawkins-Fox

Without question, our enjoyment if not our whole world revolves around what we eat or our decision and anticipation of what we will eat. We are recipients in both the contentment and frustration that food decisions create. For truly, couldn’t one consider the constant refrain from Big Macs, pizza, french fries, pies and desserts a stress in itself? The thought of never having the foods we love is likened to a dark cloud of gloom and doom. But it doesn’t have to be so. It is not what we eat once in awhile with moderation that will destroy or even the opposite – nourish us, but what we eat on a regular basis. It is important to find the balance. Does this mean that pizza and desserts are extinct? Not at all; an easier way to measure where our boundaries might be is to follow this simple guideline: Eat mostly a diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts and whole grains, then

add no more than three bites of foods that carry saturated fats, sugars, dairy, animal products, and altered substances.

This simple trick preserves balance and creates a lifestyle change that is permanent and progressive for optimum health. Plus, the feeling of deprivation wanes with small, savory portions and satiety exists. We are either a slave to our foods or a master. A master does not walk down a perfect road, but learns to balance all that is in front him. Change the food perception and point of view of what diet means and you will change your life. The joy is in the trip, in the moment, in the decisions and meals delighted in each day. Enjoy good health for it will enable you to enjoy your life to the fullest.
