Although I’m a recovering yo-yo dieter, I’m still a perfectionist (to a degree!) and I like rules and structure.  I’m always trying to clean up my diet just a little bit more and when I think about not being able to have something, it frustrates me – just like it would anyone.  And then it hits me…why do we feel like we have to follow a “diet” perfectly for it to work or be healthy for us?  For a while now I’ve been mixing up different ideas on what is healthy and it has worked for me.  I continue to get healthier each time I add this or remove that.

Lately I’ve been intrigued by a more primal approach to eating.  This approach removes all grains (as well as some other foods).  I believe in the science behind it, but it would require me to give up my oatmeal 🙁  I like my oatmeal!!  Who says I MUST eat this way?  I believe that there is no “one size fits all” approach to nutrition so why am I trying to put myself in a box?  I’ll continue removing the junk, the processed frankenfoods, the added sugars, but I think I’ll keep my oatmeal for now.

How are you trying to fit in one of the “diet” boxes?  And how are you breaking free?
