For people who have spent years on and off of diets with little success the concern of ever being able to live a “normal” life can be overwhelming. When you need to loose pounds but can’t seem to succeed, it can really affect your self esteem as well as your health.
There are two ways to address this challenge – the first is to redefine what normal actually looks like, and the other is to reevaluate how you go about eating to lose weight.
What is Normal Anyway?
Normal is a washer setting, as a friend once told me. The fact is that while there is a lot of pressure to quantify “normal”, normal is different for every individual.
Being aware of what you eat is normal, being obsessed with every bite you put in your mouth so that you are thinking about food constantly in order to loose pounds, isn’t. It is essential to find a middle ground that you can live with.
How to Eat to Loose Pounds
While weight loss can be very important, learning to have a healthy relationship with your food should have greater significance. That goes beyond just what you eat, but how you eat and when you eat and how you feel when you eat. The purpose of food is to nourish life, and it should be a happy experience.
Think about the best, most satisfying meals you have ever eaten. Chances are you will remember a gathering of friends or family where the food was simple yet well prepared. There was enough but not too much and you really enjoyed the company as much as the food.
Few people will remember meals where they sat on their own in the kitchen guzzling down a pint of Ben and Jerry’s. You don’t need me to tell you which one is more life-sustaining.
Weight Loss is a Common Result of Proper Eating
If you eat healthy foods, in healthy quantities, you will start to loose pounds. In fact, if you try to eat too many healthy foods, deliberately, chances are you won’t gain any weight either.
Weight gain results from a complex combination of circumstances, but eating foods that cause an insulin reaction from your metabolism is probably one of the largest factors.
Your body reacts to elevations in blood sugar levels strongly. The insulin that your pancreas releases causes the body to store sugar as fat rather than to use it for energy.
To prevent that sort of reaction, you need to focus on complex carbohydrates eaten with lean proteins. When eaten together they encourage the body to burn fat rather than sugar–improving your metabolic rate and helping you to lose pounds. Of course, this is just the tip of the nutritional iceberg.
You Can Lose Pounds and Still Enjoy Your Meals
There is a popular misconception that diet food has to taste awful or leave you feeling hungry all the time. If you think that losing weight requires you to feel constantly deprived, it simply isn’t true. Good nutrition in proper amounts, will leave you feeling good, full and energetic.

American Shrew-mole (Neurotrichus gibbsii)
Image by Tim Gage The Shrew-mole (Neurotrichus gibbsii) is the smallest North American mole. It is the only member of the genus Neurotrichus and the tribe Neutrichini. It is also known as the American Shrew Mole, but its relationship to the other shrew moles is distant. It is found in damp forested or bushy areas with deep loose soils in the western United States and southwestern British Columbia. It has dark grey fur, a long flattened snout and has a short but thick bristled tail. It is about 10 cm in length including a 3 cm long tail and weighs about 10 g. Its front paws are smaller and do not face outwards from the body as in more fossorial moles, and so are more similar to those of shrews. It has 36 teeth. This mole is often active above ground, foraging in leaf litter for earthworms, insects, snails and slugs. It is able to climb bushes. Predators include owls, hawks and mustelids. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shrew-mole_(Neurotrichus) It seems to be more social than other insectivores; and may travel in loose bands (Dalquest and Orcutt 1942, Maser et al. 1981). Most breeding occurs from early March to mid-May, but even then only a few percent of specimens are in breeding condition. The length of gestation not known. Litter size varies from one to four young, newborns altricial. It is reported to have an XO system of sex determination. The shrew-mole may consume more than its own body weight in food in one day. It feeds primarily on earthworms, gastropods, centipedes, sowbugs, insects, and other invertebrates. It also eats some plant seeds, fungi, and lichens. It is sightless and detects prey with its snout. It is active throughout the year. www.iucnredlist.org/apps/redlist/details/41468/0
