I read a book called "Intuitive Eating." I stopped counting points, calories, etc...I eat what I want to eat, when I want to eat it, don't place "being bad" associtions with any kind of food, full fat, low fat, high sugar, whatever.


I have also found that if I eat something with real butter or sugar instead of the fake stuff, I feel better, too. Some of that fake stuff out there is HORRIBLE for you.

I have also found that if I go ahead and eat a small amount of what I really want, I eat a lot less of it . TOTALLY true about eating the real thing -- I feel better, it's more satisfying and filling. I am still working on cutting out the Diet Cokes, though.
