Instead of a tightrope, create a wide path to follow

By Michelle May, M.D.

In my last post, Walking a Tightrope, I told you how I had repeatedly fallen off the diet tightrope I was on for over 20 years. Thank you so much for sharing your personal experiences too!

By now, most people know that diets don’t lead to lasting changes. They certainly didn’t for me. Today, I want to talk about what to do instead.

I’ll show you how to create a wide path you can follow for the rest of your life! (Download this handout to follow along as you watch!)

Create a Wide Path Using the Mindful Eating Cycle

There’s no tightrope to fall off!

As you see in the video, the Mindful Eating Cycle helps you set an intention for the vibrant life you crave!

One of the best parts about having this wide path to follow, is that when you make a mistake, there’s nothing to fall off! You just learn from you mistakes and keep going.

In the my next post, How to Deconstruct Overeating, I’ve invited one of the members of our Mindful Eating Support Community to help me demonstrate how to use the Mindful Eating Cycle after overeating to figure out what happened and what you might do differently next time.
