With the holidays dinners and parties tucked under the belt, now is the time that lots of people swear that this year they’ll lose those extra ____ pounds that they’ve gained over the past few holidays… And to do this, they go on a “[insert silly name] diet”.
Diet. That’s such a dirty word. To me, the concept of dieting is that when someone temporarily deprives herself/himself of some food group, only to give in and binge on that edible contraband a couple months later. Diets never last and usually only end in guilt down the road.
But hey. I get it, friends! I’ve been there too. I took a look at the scale, and I wasn’t exactly thrilled at what I saw. Then after trying all those futile diets, I decided to adopt a longer term solution by tweaking my overall foodie lifestyle.
