One big thing that can keep you from eating healthy
is the idea of the food. People often think it sucks
and doesn't taste good. That is the best thing of not
dieting, the food tastes great. And since eating healthy
is a "non-diet" the food also tastes great,
often better than junk food. Have you ever had a strawberry
that was so good it was almost orgasmic?
People get caught up in comparing the old food they
used to eat to the new food they are now eating. Don't
do this. Do not get caught up in trying to find something
that tastes like your old favorite thing. Here is a
little secret, the natural healthy food will not taste
the same. It will taste better, if you let it. Let me
explain what I mean with a story.
My friend was eating an apple, and after a bite or
two, she put the apple down and was going to throw it
away. It was one of the worst apples she had ever eaten,
she said. Don't ask me why, but I wanted to taste the
worst apple ever. I took a bite, and it tasted pretty
good to me. And then I had a thought. If I ate the apple
expecting an apple taste, it was pretty bad. In fact,
horrible. But when I tasted the apple for the taste
it had, without comparing it to anything else, it was
fine. In fact, the apple was pretty good. My friend,
who just a moment ago was going to throw the apple out,
tasted it again. When she didn't compare it to what
she thought an apple should taste like, she thought
it was pretty good as well.
If you try to compare the new food you are eating to
things you've eaten in the past, it will not be the
same. It is not the same. But if you actually taste
the new food you are eating for the food it is, you
will find it is just as good, if not better, than the
food you used to eat. Fresh and pure food always tastes
better than toxic food, if you taste the food for what
it is without comparing it to what you used to eat.
