A few years ago in Weight Watchers we talked about interviewing our food. At first I thought it was a little silly but it is is something that has really stuck with me and helped me figure out what foods are worth it and what aren’t. Here are some of my go to questions.
When will I see you again?
Do you taste as good as you look?
Will I be able to stop once I start eating you?
How many points are you?
Can I afford you today?
Why do I really want you?
Will I regret you later?
How will I feel after I eat you?
and one I just added to the list…
Are you going to get me closer to or further from my goal?
This strategy has really helped me manage many Holidays, events and parties and I encourage you to give it a shot. Come up the the questions that make a difference to you. If nothing else it could definitely make you more mindful but if you stick with it it could become a habit be a real game changer for you
