Here’s a funny idea. Do you have “separation anxiety” when it comes
to food? Maybe it’s not as funny as it sounds. Going on a diet means
separating yourself from the eating habits you’ve come to depend on.
This is not easy for anyone. In fact, asking yourself to suddenly let
go of your regular eating habits may cause you to cling to them even
tighter. Your diet will go much better if you anticipate these feelings
and plan good ways of dealing with them. An excellent weight loss plan
is to begin by taking baby steps away from your brand of eating. This
gives you the chance to gradually get used to eating differently. This
allows you to ease out of your separation anxiety as you break your
attachment to overeating.
