“I’m a cookie monster”
First off, keep in mind that slips, “those times when you just break free of healthy eating, are a normal part of lifestyle change,” counsels Dr. Coral Arvon in her emotional eating workshops at the Pritikin Longevity Center in Miami. “More than 99% of people who are shedding pounds and becoming more physically active have slips.”
“When we start anything new, from learning to ski to ordering healthfully in restaurants, we’re going to stumble,” says Dr. Arvon.
“But keep in mind that slips don’t necessarily hurt your progress. Even the biggest cookie binge is not the end of the world. What really hurts your progress is how you react to slips. Are you wallowing in chocolate cookies day after day? Or are you back on your feet again, dusting off the cookie crumbs, and heading in a healthy direction?”
