Hopping Down the Bunny Trail – Chocolate & BMI

April 18th, 2014 No Comments Tags: , , , ,

I recently read about a study touting that people who ate chocolate regularly had lower BMI’s. Oh my!! Just in time for Easter, hippity hop down the bunny trail.

When I think about this dynamic my thoughts focus on our relationship with food and allowing all food to fit. No foods that are deprived. Nutrient balance is the key. Just think about it. When a food is forbidden we want it so much more and when we get it, often overdo it, eating it in excess. It’s the excess part that contributes to an increased BMI, that’s for sure. Let’s not kid ourselves on that. I discuss this in my e-book Skinny on Slim, The Little Black Dress of Diet Books.

If you want a bite of chocolate have it. A piece of it or two, not a meter high bunny with the big long ears. Of all of the relationships to work on (other than that with family) is that with your food – eat it, savour it, enjoy it, respect it and allow it. Create a love affair with it. When all is said and done you won’t be driven to binge to make up for what you can’t have, because you can have it.

Get that taste out of your mouth and be done with it!
