delicious fresh berries in a rowI often listen to people when they talk about a particular “diet” plan that they are following.  They will talk about the foods that they cannot eat and the foods that they are  “allowed” to eat.  How many minutes of exercise that they “have” to do each week.  When I hear about this type of plan, all I can think about is RULES.  Often times the requirements of these types of plans are just too much and set people up for not being able to stick with it.  This can lead to discouragement and guilt about not being able to follow the plan.  I encourage people to look at a nutrition plan in a very different way.  This is meant to be on their terms.  I will often encourage people to frame their food choices as
1.  Frequency
2. Portion
3.  How is it prepared.

This helps to let people see that there are many different options and the food choices are abundant.  This leads people to make choices on their terms and eating food that they enjoy on their journey for healthier eating.  Anita
