How To Lose Weight: In A World That Glorifies Gluttony

How To Lose Weight: In A World That Glorifies Gluttony

It's no secret that our society often glorifies gluttony, while those who choose to eat healthily are sometimes labeled as "weird" or "fussy."

Everywhere we turn, super-sized portions, decadent meals, and sugar-laden "cereal bars" seem to dominate our culinary landscape. This raises a critical question: why is our world so quick to celebrate excess and look askance at those who opt for a more nutritious path?

I can tell you one very key trick I've learnt over a decade or so of eating 'differently'... you HAVE to embrace being the weirdo and not give two shits. I've been called anorexic (by my Dad of all people....) and been told to "just eat the cake". It gets to the point where you just don't bloody care - and that is the beautiful key.

So, How To Lose Weight In A World That Glorifies Gluttony...

Swaps Eating Out

Picture this scenario: you're at a restaurant, and you decide to order a salad instead of the standard fries with your steak. People give you an odd look, as if you've just committed a culinary sacrilege. It's almost as though choosing a salad or veggies makes you a culinary outcast. That's Ok. Mild and order another wine!

Ordering Less (to save the restaurant waste)

Or perhaps you're out for breakfast and opt for a hearty plate of bacon, eggs, mushrooms, and tomatoes without the toast or hash browns. Your fellow diners raise their eyebrows; you're the 'fussy' one, the oddball who doesn't subscribe to the norm. In the workplace, the story is no different.

Eating At Work: It's Not Cool To Be Organised

When you pull out a Tupperware container filled with a delicious and healthy homemade meal, you're met with quizzical looks. Colleagues, on the other hand, proudly declare that they're "in a hurry" and dash off to grab something from the nearest cafe. This act, feigning busyness, has somehow become a trend. And if you return with a bag of sweets for the office, you're heralded as a hero.

Office Cake & Karen Comments (We all had one!)

Now, let's talk about office cake. Declining a slice is met with confusion. "Why not treat yourself once in a while?" they say, as if taking care of your health and well-being is an alien concept. "Are you on a diet?" they ask with a chuckle. But it's not about dieting; it's about making choices that make you feel good.

It's About Sticking True To You

The truth is, eating healthily is not about conforming to societal norms, but about taking care of your body and mind. While the world groans about how full they are after a gluttonous meal, you, the 'weirdo,' will be sitting there with a satisfied smile on your face. Embracing your status as the "weirdo" when it comes to food choices can be liberating. It's about saying no to the norm and yes to a healthier, more vibrant you. It's about respecting your body and your health.

It's More About Changing Behaviour Than About Food

Changing your behaviour and mindset about food can be the most transformative part of your journey. It's not merely about the physical food on your plate; it's about the power you have over your choices and the freedom to decide what goes into your body.

If you've embarked on a journey towards a healthier lifestyle, you understand that it's not just a matter of food—it's about your self-worth, confidence, and the respect you have for your body. You've learned that being the "weirdo" isn't such a bad thing after all. In fact, it's a badge of honour.

So, don't be afraid to stand out, to be different, to be the one who chooses health over indulgence. Embrace your inner "weirdo" with pride, and your body and confidence levels will thank you for it. After all, it's your life, and your choices should reflect what makes you happy and healthy.
