Are You In Denial About Your Diet

Is Your Diet in Denial?

I had a women ask me a question about her hard hitting hunger she experienced almost every night.

It went something like this:

I eat lean protein, complex carbs and veggies and I’m always starving in the evening on days I do cardio. Why is this?

I could easily see what the glaring red flag was immediately.

You aren’t eating any healthy fats.

Fats are satisfiers and are vital for sustaining satiety later in the day and into the night.

Before I could even get that out of my mouth the fickle woman says…

Wait! Bu bu but I eat avocado and peanut butter every day too!

Of course you do sweet cheeks, of course you do.

Wanna know the fastest way way to lose the trust of a jury?

Change your story.

Can you guess the quickest way for a detective to tell if you're fibbing in a police interview?

Change your story.

Wanna take a stab at the sure fire way to know if someone is in denial about their diet?

If you guessed change your story then you win a jumbo sized jar of peanut butter to binge on next time you have cravings after dinner.

Why does she keep changing her story?

I'll tell you why.

Because of her false bravado.

She's full of arrogance and pride.

She just can't let that go because she thinks she can do it on her own.

Which of course will never happen.

All she has to do is swallow her pride.

She had no problem swallowing half of a bottle of wine last night along with three rice crispy treats.

But that pride just won't go down will it?

Once you've failed on your diet so many times, month after month, year after year you've lost all confidence in your own ability to make any nutrition related decisions.

So as long as you continue to push this narrative of denial that your diet's just fine and doesn't need any fixing then the longer you don't have to make any nutritional decisions to improve.

Even though you're starving every night after you do cardio.

And that's why so many people are in a state of denial about their diet.
