Losing weight is a struggle. Sometimes, life itself can be a struggle. How we react to that struggle, the actions that we take, or even the reactions that we make, determines those conditions that will break us, or… if we choose, those same conditions that serve to make us.
In January 2012, I invented a diet for people who use Facebook. So far, people have submitted nearly 10,000 (yes, ten thousand) photos of food choices based on convenience, calories, cost or a combination of all three. But have they lost any weight?
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.
Did you know, the “C” in the “C Diet” stands for “choice”? Since the Facebook C Diet was created in January, people have learned to make mindful food choices simply by taking a picture and describing what they see.
Can your camera phone help you to lose weight? The Facebook C Diet is a social media experiment in mindful eating using a cell phone camera and Facebook. It was created to see if food craving compulsions could be controlled through community-based, online coaching.
