These blogs are part of a video series I produced earlier this year. From Free Video-Blog series, to E-book and now to Blogs, I wanted to provide as much access as possible to these words of wisdom. Why? Because, I’m all about the fulfillment of the Human-Spirit…Everyone’s Human Spirit! So, here we go!
#1 Rule of Diet Like a Guru is: You need not deprive yourself of ANYTHING!
So, with that said, you are now free to choose whatever it is you want. You can have as much as you want of whatever you want! You have the power and freedom to choose! YES!!!!
Now for the biggest conundrum you will face as you take on the practice of dieting like a guru: Either you are depriving yourself of your substances of choice, or you are depriving yourself of the health and vitality you want to experience in your life. It is a dilemma, and how we be with our dilemmas will help us move relatively gracefully towards our desired outcome.
Wait-I just told you that you didn’t have to deprive yourself of anything, right? What gives?
I have two questions for you that will be foundational to how you proceed through this practice: “What is it that you want? And, what is it that you want – enough – that you are willing to experiment with how you be with the dilemmas and conundrums facing you. How will you adventure into possibility?” okay, that’s 3 questions!
When I ask my clients these questions, they often say: “I want to be healthy; I want to lose weight; I want to bring more exercise into my life; I want to be a model of healthy living for my children; I want to be happy and fulfilled. AND… I want to continue to indulge my impulses- not deprive myself of anything.” Excellent!
