The Huffington Post recently had an interesting article by Kathy Freston author of The Lean about how eating apples can help people lose weight. I wrote a post similar to this a few years ago adding something rather than subtracting foods. According to Ms. Freston, because apples have a fiber called pectin, which is used to bulk up jams and gelatinous foods, once it gets into your stomach, you will begin to feel more satisfied due to that same filling mechanism, and in a study published in Nutrition, scientists found that participants who ate an apple or a pear before meals lost a significant amount of weight.
It’s an interesting study because it goes back to how giving yourself more, more healthy food, more self love, more self care, more good stuff, you will naturally become more healthy. Depriving and restricting leads to deprivation and lots of emotional pain and turmoil. Because it’s so challenging, and because your body wants to be fed, you will be working against yourself. When you work against resistance, you are bound to get slammed.
So, try, just for one day, rather than giving yourself less, to give yourself more good stuff. More kind words, more fresh air, more apples, and more kindness.
