Your body wants to eat a certain amount of food, so dieting and starving yourself doesn’t work because sooner or later, something’s gotta give. Unfortunately, because we’re surrounded by junk food these days, the odds are very good that your willpower will tap out right at the moment when you need it the most.
So, I take the opposite approach. I fill my belly with good food as often as possible to ensure that I never experience the kind of hunger that deludes me into thinking that garbage is tasty. And I really go for it. I pour olive oil onto my salad, eat a tablespoons of natural peanut or almond butter after every meal, and snack on carrots and hummus like there’s no tomorrow.
Everything in my fridge is strategically chosen to ensure that I experience maximum satisfaction with a minimal number of calories and little or no sugar. From the two greasy eggs (slowly-digested protein) and giant pile of beans (slowly-digested fiber) that I eat every morning to the salads swimming in olive oil that I have for lunch, to the dense yogurt I eat for dessert at night, all my food fills my belly and satisfies my soul.
If you fill up on healthy food there’ll be no room in your stomach or your life for garbage. Develop a monogamous relationship with healthy food and she’ll reward you with so much pleasure that you’ll never dally with the skanky whores of junk food.
