Ever hear something that stops you in your tracks?

I did the other day.

Over the years I’ve had many people say some variation of “I like my food too much”.

As part of their reasoning for not being as slim as they might like.

And I get that.

I love my food.

I heard the same phrase said the other day.

In a very different way.

A member explaining why they never had dessert.

“I like my food too much” they said.

Sensing my confused look, they continued.

“I like my food too much to have really energy dense stuff. And not be able to have much of it. Or get fat”.

Mind blown!

This, of course, doesn’t mean we can never have desserts (or any other energy dense foods) again.

But it’s a different way to look at it, isn’t it?

We don’t have more of them because we “like our food”.

We have less of them because we “like our food”.

So that we can have more food overall.

560 calories from a standard tub of Ben and Jerry’s.

Or 560 calories from half a tub and a nice chicken salad.

Or have a whole tub of Halo and the salad.

Or one of many other swaps you can make (check the meal planner tab on the app / site for ideas – you can filter by any an all requirements and preferences. Or get booked in the for the next briefing meeting if you’re not a member and would benefit from actual support, rather than just being told to “try harder” -> www.theacademygtc.co.uk/briefing-meeting).

To maintain (or maybe reduce) overall calories whilst increasing (or maintaining) portion sizes.

And, hopefully, maintain enjoyment.

If it leaves you miserable and / or hungry, it ain’t gonna happen.

But there’s probably a way to “enjoy your food” without having to go hungry or get fat.

Much love,
