THIS WEEK’S “ASK GILAD” BLOG

Question: How would you describe the way you eat?  Do you have to be obsessive to maintain a healthy life style?

Answer: Like anything else, it is all the way you look at it. I do not consider my eating habits obsessive in any way. I consider myself a 'natural eater'. 'Natural eaters' eat to supply their bodies with the fuel they need to live each day. They concern themselves with what foods will energize and sustain them. They eat only until they are satisfied, never any more or any less. 'Natural eaters' are aware of what foods are good for them, but they are not obsessive about calorie counting or eating exact amounts or types of food. 

Natural eating is instinctual. It is only through the process of socialization that we end up confusing other issues with eating and forget our natural ability to choose the right food for ourselves. For example, one of the reasons we could learn to like sweets is if our parents gave them to us as a reward. We can learn to enjoy processed foods because they are readily available. Then we develop a fondness for salt and fat because that is what most processed food consists of.
 
Make an effort to get back to the instinctual behavior of being a 'natural eater'.  You will be glad you did.
