Delicious Diary Entry - My Book Club Chat!

                                                   Delicious Diary Entry
                                 "A healthy dose of motivation with a twist"


My name is Ms.Delicious Diary and my job is to see how my clients are really doing when it comes to their weight loss journey. My favorite clients are Super Size-It Sally and Low-Calorie Lucy, along with their close knit group of friends. They all have their own way of dealing with their issues, and the funniest nicknames to prove it as you will see as you read their diary entries each week. I hold the key to the diary in this special little green bag. My fingers are itching to unlock the diary and see their weight loss or gain, and check their delicious food entries.

Dear Diary: My Book Club Chat!

Super Size-Sally:

Page 69 reads: Chrissy had a long hard day at work and was feeling a bit over whelmed with all the things she had to do. Her to do list was growing by the minute and she just wanted to rip it to shreds. But, she decided to take out her frustration on a bag of Oreo cookies in her cabinet, it was all but over now. She started with two and just kept going back for more and more and more but she could not find any comfort in that bag of cookies no matter how many she ate.....

Low-Calorie Lucy:

Page 70 reads: We all no what comfort eating looks like and it's usually not pretty. It's not so bad if it only happens occasionally, but if you find yourself doing it often, that is not good. Try looking for other things that bring you comfort and have them in place and ready to go when you need them. Don't wait until you need comforting to find something to comfort you. Think ahead and plan ahead so you won't end up eating for all the wrong reasons....

Lifestyle change of the week!
Planning ahead is a game changer for almost everything in life. When you plan ahead it changes the outcome to a positive one. Planning ahead for those times when you need comfort will prevent you from turning to food as your first choice.

Do This:

1. Prepare ahead for the week ahead, to stay ahead of the scale.

2. Know what you are going to eat before you get hungry.

3. Eat fresh, local and in season for the most nutritious food that taste delicious.

4. Read the ingredients list, the first thing listed is what the product contains the most of.

5. When it comes to food, always be a picky eater. You will make better choices.

Not That:

1. Don't ask what's for dinner, know in advance. Knowledge is power.

2. Don't wait until you are starving to start looking for food. By then it's too late, you will eat anything.

3. Don't eat food with no nutritional value, it won't nurture you.

4. Don't forget to read the ingredients to know what you are really eating.

5. Don't settle for fake food that looks real.

Motivating Tip
Your body is trying to do the best it can to stay fit and healthy. But, it can't do it alone, it needs your help to succeed. You are running the show, you only get out what you put in, literally!

I'm sure you have heard that variety is the spice of life. Well, I'm here to tell you that herbs and spices are the true spice of life. They add flavor without the calories and health benefits without the side effects. They are considered medicine on a plate when you use them in your food. We love cinnamon, turmeric, cumin and curry for all the body friendly benefits not to mention the delicious flavor it brings to food. When you look around the world to see what countries are the healthiest, it is usually those countries that use all these spices and more on a daily basis in their cooking. It seems their food really is thy medicine!

Motivating Tip
Food is not just tasty but it is the fuel your body uses to function and keep you healthy. Choose the best food, lots of herbs and spices for flavor and plenty of fruits and vegetables. You really are what you eat, so eat the best to be your best!
