Exploring presence through practice
I think diets should accommodate favorite foods (in moderation) — otherwise you feel that you are being deprived and pine for “tempting” foods. If you give in, you might feel remorse (which helps keep you on track overall), but if it happens frequently, maybe the diet isn’t totally reasonable (and the remorse may become a self-sabotaging guilt). Also note that habits take about a month to form, and concentrating on forming one habit at a time is easier than making multiple habits stick. If you’ve cut everything you like out of your diet at once instead of easing into it, it’s going to be more difficult to maintain the diet, psychologically, as you have to rewire so much more of your thinking. However, since your goals are to achieve an athletic ideal, and require some extreme discipline, I’m not sure how much what I’ve said holds up.
Also, if you are craving salt or savory foods (without a visual stimulus), your body might be needing more electrolytes and/or water (if you are craving sweet, that’s a good sign your body needs water — in our species’ primitive diet, fruit provided a safe source of water so there is a hard-wired connection), so that might be a factor to consider.
holy shit katharine, i never knew you were such a nutritionist! i completely agree – cheat days are critical. I have one remorse free cheat day every couple weeks and it feels awesome. not to mention that my cheat foods taste amazing because i eat them so rarely 🙂
