Eat only what you want
If you eat too much, you put on weight. I know that because I have. It doesn't matter why one eats - eating is eating.
Putting on pounds is a fact of modern life. We just aren't as active as we were years ago and we have not adjusted our eating habits (and please note that I call them "habits") to match our lower level of activity - although everyone would say, if asked, that they're always on the run.
As a cat lover, you'll notice that cats never eat anything they don't want. There's things you may want your cat to eat but, try as you will, if your cat doesn't want it, he (or she) won't eat it.
So, for today, (unless your doctor tells you otherwise) let's follow the lead of our cats. Today, we'll eat only what we want and we're going to enjoy it!
Just for today, give up the mindless eating of "healthy" foods and eat like a cat.
Cats eat what they want. When you eat only what you really want you'll naturally eat less. When you eat less, you'll loose weight - and don't worry about it. Today you might be craving Little Debbies but "tomorrow is another day!"
