Intuitive Eating and Weight Watchers
I have decided to count calories but pulled out my old weight watchers books. I decided to try this with the calorie counting because with my schedule I can put the book in my purse and count my food intake. I still used the concept of intuitive eating to eat when hungry and it worked. When I ate 4 small chocolate chip cookies with a small bit of ice cream between the two, I was delighted and no deprivation. I am eating just what I wanted after waiting for hunger. A year ago, I would not have been able to stop with just two small sandwich cookies and the cycle would have begun. Out of control I would have eaten more points because I had no will power, then beat myself up for cheating. Eating chocolate chip cookies would have been bad, then depression would have set in and I would have thought you are a failure and the diet cycle would have started again. I have more energy today and I feel great.
