Variety: The Spice of Life

 

We live in a "get bored quick" society. We need variety in our daily activities: the work we do, shows we watch, books we read, cars we drive, vacations we take, and so on. 

 

 

 

One of the reasons diets fail is that people have to eat similar foods over and over again until they never want to see that food type or food group again. If you don't add variety into your food you will probably start binging on whatever you'd been depriving yourself of. It can happen early in the diet which makes the dieter feel like a failure; it can happen midway through or even after the diet is over and the person has lost weight. They will simply gain back the extra pounds they lost by indulging without moderation on whatever they deprived themselves of. 

 

 

 

Does this sound familiar? Well, probably your last diets lacked sufficient variety. If that's so, let me advise you on a few things that have been key for me:


 

  • Buy cookbooks that provide new ways of preparing some of your favorite foods. You'd be surprised on how easy it is to follow directions and prepare a delicious meal in no time.
  • Go to new ethnic restaurants you've never been to or invite a friend or relative to cook something unusual.
  • Try to experiment with new spices and herbs, especially fresh ones that add tremendous flavor to foods.
  • Finally, try out different markets that sell organic food, spices, produce, etc. The taste is much richer and generally the prices are more budget-friendly than most of the places that sell organic food.
