PODSNACKS/Art of the Diet

Do you know anyone who went on a diet, lost weight, but regained it? Nah, me, either. PODSNACKS/Art of the Diet is the weekly podcast of my blog, www.artofthediet.com, a mix of tips and strategies from one who FINALLY has maintained a significant weight loss for 9+ years. If I can do it, so can you--so let's do it together. Think of it as online support for this lifetime challenge-- no fee, meeting, or weigh-in-- just practical ways to keep focus, hope & humor and, oh, yes--a touch of humility.... Show More

What is on my grocery list every week in a pandemic? Truth. Food is the only thing I have control over these days and it is oddly comforting. I dress for the Apocalypse when going to the grocery store and ask myself what do I need not what do I want. My goal for this period of time: to want what I need and to tell my food truth to myself every week. www.artofthediet.com

There are folks preparing for the Apocalypse and they have acronyms like GOOD=Get Out Of Dodge. I have an acronym for any dieters in the prepper population: SHWAA= So Here We Are Again & YSHTWYC: YOU STILL HAVE TO WATCH YOUR CARBS.

What’s Next on The Fun Agenda? 2020 begins with a cartoon question that I saw recently on an artist’s Instagram account. His name was “clownchic”. His character answered it by simply stating “Abstinence”. I laughed out loud as this character looked like he had abused every illegal substance available. After the holidays, don’t we all feel this way? Of course, but I cannot deal with another self help strategy, my own included. So, i...

RESIST (Carbs and Hate) is the word of my day and the weeks to come of weight management. Sometimes, you don't understand why the old habits don't seem to work but passivity is not the conclusion. Resisting passivity is the only next step. That's where I'm at in weight maintenance and the state of my country. Resist CARBS and HATE.

There was a time when reading or listening to someone suggesting that I treat myself with a bit more kindness would have been met with severe eye rolling. By "there was a time", I mean as recently as last month and I’m 74. But, today's episode highlights what has turned my deep eyerolls into acceptance and more importantly, even doing it. Breathe in. Breathe out. With kindness, begin again. Dieting, Living, closing your...

Episode 166: Your Car Knows How Much You Weigh. A spokesman for the Auto Association let that cat out the bag. I thought it should have led the news cycle. And, a connection with meditation practice and weight management that does not involve 10-15 minutes of meditation with a body scan. Just thinking about being kind to yourself today. Just think it.

"People Who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of who do." Isaac Asimov This podcast offers up what I know (for sure) about weight maintenance in an aging body: you have to eat less whether by choice or anxiety, eating less is the fundamental way to maintain a significant weight loss. It's not exercising more to maintain it is eating less to maintain. Telling the truth is not a marketing strategy ...

She does not belong to a national weight loss program but is seeking out new ways to understan...
