THIS WEEK’S “ASK GILAD” BLOG
Question: I know I need start dieting but I keep procrastinating. I am reluctant to give up all of my favorite foods. Can you give me some tips on how to get started?
Answer: At no point will I ever tell you that you have to cut out every one of you favorite foods or go on some restrictive diet. That kind of thinking will not lead to long term success, and we are in this for the long term.
To me eating healthy is more a matter of education than anything else. Most of you know that I believe that getting on a scale every day to check your progress is a waste of time. I am not a big believer in calorie counting either. If you eat good healthy wholesome food that sustains your fit lifestyle you don't have to worry about counting calories. In fact, if you have to worry about how many calories are in something that you want to eat, it probably doesn't belong in your diet.
If you are serious about eating better I suggest you get a copy of my Eat Right Now nutritional plan simply for the knowledge of what foods are good for you and why. The more you know, the easier it is to make decisions on a meal to meal basis. And the next time you want to check your progress....look in a mirror.
