A Diet of Appreciation

It’s spring and there is a plethora of diets – food and exercise to whip you into shape often at lightening speed. Yet, for most, they often fail us. Why is that and what can we do about it?

I have come to the conclusion is that the diets lack the two key elements of appreciation:

  • Gratitude: for ourselves, the food we have available to us, and the many people and resources we have at our disposal
  • Growth: that is required to make lasting change. As Albert Einstein once said, “Problems cannot be solved with the same mindset that created them.” There is a internal component or (dare I say) transformation that needs to take place.

So whether you goal is greater health, maintaining your current weight, or dropping a few pounds – adding a bit of gratitude and growth could be just what you need to succeed for good.

Have a great week,
