When it comes to food, habits can either be beneficial or they can be detrimental

What is a habit? It is a tendency that is hard to give up. Good or bad, habits are addictive and the more we practice them, the easier they become.

In fact, research has shown that the more ingrained a habit becomes, the less thinking we perform when engaging in that habit. When it comes to food, habits can either be beneficial or they can be detrimental.

Chances are, putting on un-predisposed weight came from forming bad food habits. The reason there is no prosciutto, baloney, salami or chocolate during the initial weeks of the Facebook C Diet is simple. They are comfort foods built on bad habits. Sure, some of these foods may be innately “bad,” (excess sodium, sugar, fat, etc), but this is not why they are off limits. The association, the craving, the desire you feel when you indulge in these foods is stronger than your willpower… at least right now. And this is the whole point of the Facebook C Diet.

Participants on the Facebook C Diet are encouraged to eat normal food. Some are items they may have never eaten — because of habit.

A diet is simply what you normally eat. The Facebook C Diet, is meant to make you mindful of what you eat and part of being mindful is control. Once you are in control and not the food, cravings will no longer be the banes in your weight loss endeavors, but will become cherished and precious treats, for you to enjoy… not crave.
