The line between Indulgence and Resolve

We’ve all been there – a devil on one shoulder, an angel on the other…the devils says “eat, eat – you can diet tomorrow”; the angel says “be virtuous, be strong, resist”. Who do you listen to? At this time of year, many resolve to stop indulging TOMORROW. Maybe the problem lies with the whole concept of traditional dieting. Just perhaps, if we viewed eating healthfully as a lifestyle, we could eliminate the need to diet altogether. Think about it, a world without the dreaded “D”s – no dieting, no deprivation, no don’t eats.

I propose a New Years toast – here’s to loving life enough to eat healthfully and exercise vigorously. If we could master that, we’d never have to diet again.
