What I had for
"But eating 'healthy' is just gonna be so BORING!" -- A lot of people. Maybe even me, before I met Tim Ferriss.
Here's something - a chocolate protein shake with fruit - I had for breakfast today. And the day before. And the day before that, too. Tomorrow, also yes. (Probably.)
And I tell you this just so you know that I eat a lot of the same things over and over again.
Of course, I try to eat the rainbow. I try to vary protein sources. I try to pick something I've never had before if I'm in an unfamiliar city or a new restaurant.
But I do have my go-to meals and my staple ingredients.
A common complaint about post-eating-disorder eating is that it's going to be boring. That it's going to be the same things over and over again.
And you know what? It just might.
But as my ex-internet-boyfriend Tim Ferriss points out, that's true for most people. People who eat "whatever they want," people who eat all junk food or all prepared food or all processed food, people who eat unhealthy food in unhealthy ways, people who have given up on "healthy" eating. A lot of people eat the same things over and over, whether that's beans and brown rice or Frito Pie* right off the open plastic packet.
If you want to take control of your weight, you'll have to get control of how your food is prepared. And that means that unless you have unlimited time and keen interest in planning and shopping and cooking,
REPETITION IS YOUR FRIEND.
*True confession: I will always have love for Frito Pie. I just don't eat it on repeat.
Stop bingeing and overeating. Immediately.
