Lately all my rules and mandating have gone to pot. This always happens. I start off with a few rules and stick to them. After a while I add more rules and they get more and more draconian. Eventually I rebel and do nothing.
I think the best rules were these:
- no eating while reading
- no eating while watching TV unless someone is with me
- no eating while standing up unless someone is with me or I’m cooking
- cooking once per week
- at least one portion of fruit and veg per day
The advantage of these rules was that even if I was really stressed and wanting to eat, I didn’t because I wanted to carry on with the task in hand. Cooking once per week got me somehow more in touch with food.
I think the rules listed above are good and that if I stick to them I’ll get thinner and healthier.
