The best way to achieve your goals is to learn to “eat for energy,” focusing on what you should be eating instead of what you shouldn't. Sometimes people don't even notice they aren't consuming as many processed foods as they did in the past. When your body is getting the nutrition it needs, it works more efficiently and doesn't have as many cravings for refined carbohydrates. The trick is sustaining a positive environment whenever you eat. Don't go too long without eating or consume too many “empty” calories. Healthy eating keeps you from feeling deprived. This chapter will support you in building more positive relationships with foods and help you release negative ideas you've had in the past.
