As my last January post, I just want to clarify the psychology behind my diet and answer all your questions you have brought up to me.
If you have to “nuke” it, you shouldn’t consume it *microwave
In a perfect world my kids wouldn’t need a microwave or a tv 🙂 I started getting really into not giving my children processed foods, hot dogs, popcorn, deli meat, macaroni ect. since recently having a loved one pass away from pancreatic cancer
The whiter the bread, the sooner your dead *wheat bread only
Wheat bread is good fiber and helps stay regular
I don’t salt their food I don’t butter their food *once on your lips, forever on your hips
I am a believer of healthy fat, my kids love avocados and we do eat butter when it’s in a recipe or salt in a recipe. I just don’t butter unnecessarily or salt more than needed
We don’t make dessert – but we do go out for treats a lot
If you want a treat in our house we have to go out and get it. Which does happen, but we do not bake or buy cookies, chips ect b/c I don’t want myself or family grazing on them as snacks -out of sight out of mind
I do stock up on lots of raspberries, goldfish, applesauce, grapes, cheese and peppers
I never make them finish their plates *rather have it go to waste then end up on our waist
We make our kids listen to their bodies instead of forcing them to eat more than they can handle.
What’s up with the no organic? Not that you have to buy everything organic, but there are the “dirty dozen” that are better to buy organically.
I am not familiar with the “dirty dozen” but I don’t believe everything has to be organic i.e. I think a carrot is a carrot organic or not. I have become more about readability on labels than looking for the word organic on packaging.
Now if Slim-Fast could clean up some of their ingredients we’d be good to go.
Why do you care that your 4 year old son has a six pack?
I have never encouraged him to have one. I was just blown away that he didn’t just have abs, but he had all 6 packs in tact. I am not taking credit. I however do believe in providing your kids with healthy food options, that’s where I will take credit.
I can’t believe you make your kids drink their calories.
I do not make my kids “drink themselves skinny” but I don’t feed them anything that I wouldn’t eat myself. I make 90% of their food. I workout not on their time, but my own.
You starve your daughter and you brag about it.
This is obsurd! Yes she didn’t double her 6 lb birthweight by the age of one. I only brought that up because Briton more than doubled his 7.5 lb birthweight at 6 weeks.
In my defense before her year appointment I had just stopped nursing her, which did cause her to loose weight. We found out she was both tongue and lip tied and she is proportionate. Yes I felt awful about this and l have never encouraged her to be small. Her nickname is “Littles” because she is. She is growing and gaining at her own pace and we just love her the way she is. She is my little “Holly(Polly) -Pocket”
I am not anorexic nor am I encouraging it.
I actually love my lifestyle and my diet. It works. I have tried EVERYTHING and this is what works for me. I love that I am eating all day long, I am able to enjoy big dinners with my family eat desserts and be at my most comfortable weight.
I actually don’t talk about my weight or about diets because I am comfortable in my own skin. Which I believe is healthy for children to see.
