PODSNACKS/Art of the Diet

What is on my grocery list every week in a pandemic? Truth. Food is the only thing I have control over these days and it is oddly comforting. I dress for the Apocalypse when going to the grocery store and ask myself what do I need not what do I want. My goal for this period of time: to want what I need and to tell my food truth to myself every week. www.artofthediet.com

Claude Monet inspired this month’s podcast about the Art of the Diet. He inspired it not for his fitness regime or low-fat recipes because both those concerns did not appear to be on his mind at all. But, what does impress is the care and attention he gave to food and its preparation as well as presentation. These aspects can energize a weight maintenance program. www.artofthediet.com

What’s Next on The Fun Agenda? 2020 begins with a cartoon question that I saw recently on an artist’s Instagram account. His character answered it by simply stating “Abstinence”. I laughed out loud as this character looked like he had abused every illegal substance available. After the holidays, don’t we all feel this way? 2020, I am focusing on artists who have tackled food, glorious food and food issues not so glorious in their art and that have resonated with my own issues. www.artofthediet.

Most people who have maintained a significant weight loss for many years are often asked: "What diet do you recommend?". My most recent answer is the subject of this month's podcast: I recommend "The Keep It Simple" Diet and it involves three tweaks of behavior not entire renovations.

Lately, my will power has been tapped out by too many challenges. So, this month I focus on an article by Dr. Jerome Groopman in The New Yorker, who takes a look at what science can tell us about will power. In essence? If we rearrange our choices and bypass will power we are more successful. In other words, if you hide the marshmallows you are less likely to eat them. Game On. www.artofthediet.com

www.artofthediet.com I named this podcast “Art of the Diet” five years ago because maintaining a significant weight loss for years is not just a matter of facts and science, it is an art that needs a skillful plan in order to succeed. Just like war. There is a striking similarity, in fact, between waging war in the late 6th Century BC and maintaining a significant weight loss in 2019.

“That Man Has a Serious Weight Problem”. A quote from the current President of the United States about a man with a loud voice in his NH campaign rally he (POTUS) thought was protesting rather than adoring his presence. Man was ejected but turns out wasn’t protesting but lovin’ his man. What this story and others tells us about men and women having weight issues in the US of A. www.artofthediet.com

RESIST (Carbs and Hate) is the word of my day and the weeks to come of weight management. Sometimes, you don't understand why the old habits don't seem to work but passivity is not the conclusion. Resisting passivity is the only next step. That's where I'm at in weight maintenance and the state of my country. Resist CARBS and HATE.

There was a time when reading or listening to someone suggesting that I treat myself with a bit more kindness would have been met with severe eye rolling. By "there was a time", I mean as recently as last month and I’m 74. But, today's episode highlights what has turned my deep eyerolls into acceptance and more importantly, even doing it. Breathe in. Breathe out. With kindness, begin again. Dieting, Living, closing your garage door. it simply goes better with a little kindness. It's the eve of Independence Day in the US. www.artofthediet.com
