How to stop eating so much and lose weight is a 50 year old question, and here’s the the anti diet approach to weight loss.

And in this article I’m going to show you:

  • Why cooking natural foods is the key to health
  • Video of me cooking lunch to demonstrate cooking can be easy, quick and nutritious

But before we get into the content, let’s examine where we were 50 years ago …

I say 50 years old because people only started paying attention to weight loss in a much more serious way about 50 years ago.

In the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s we saw the growth of Huge Corporate Weight Loss Industry, approximately worth $585 Billion Dollars globally.

The Weight Loss Industry pushed diets on us, tracking calories, and short-term weight loss.

We discovered short-term weight loss didn’t work.

So now what?


There’s a movement.

Many movements.

Health At Every Size and Intuitive Eating are two of the more prominent movements.

These movements are about:

  1. Health At Every Size: Realizing you don’t have to be skinny in order to be healthy, focusing on health behaviors instead of weight loss
  2. Intuitive Eating: Ditching diets and listening to your body and learning what health means to you

Now …

These movements emphasize a few different things in relation to nutrition.

I’m not going to go too deep into their principles and lessons here …

We’re going to keep things short and simple:

Here’s the basic advice …

(and perhaps the main point is that you don’t need more than the basics)

The anti diet approach to weight loss

So first things first…

All these movements and this website/business – Weight Loss Enlightenment – they all emphasize letting go of weight loss.

Forget about it!

When you focus on weight loss, you stop focusing on the process of health.

Plus, weight loss is one of the top causes of eating disorders, body shame, and gaining MORE weight than you started with!!!

See this article where I research Weight Watchers and show you directly how they cleverly present their ‘research’ to avoid showing you the TRUE costs of weight loss.

So …

Let go of weight loss!

Now you might start to panic …

“What’s the point if not to lose weight?”

Here’s an excellent article about balancing nutrition an intuitive eating, if you are curious to learn more, by Dr. Claudia Felty.

The point is:

  • energy
  • confidence
  • joy
  • not feeling floated
  • feeling rejuvenated
  • feeling light

And … reaching out body’s natural weight set point.

The goal is NOT to become an Instagram Model.

The goal is to reach your body’s natural set point, which is partly determined by genes.

Some people have bigger natural bodies and there is nothing wrong with that.

Some people, if you have been dieting, may be heavier than their natural set point.

These people, when they start following the nutritional principles below and eating intuitively, will lose weight.

Other times due to stress and the ability to quasi-diet, people are underweight.

These people will gain weight as they learn to eat intuitively and follow these principles.

Now I know, weight gain seems like the worst thing ever.

Yet, staying skinny often comes at a high price:

  • anxiety
  • obsession
  • low energy
  • fatigue
  • irritability
  • mood swings
  • lack of confidence and self esteem

So …

Here are the basic nutritional principles

  1. Eat natural unprocessed foods
  2. Eat balanced meals
  3. Cook your food at home

Now the biggest objection people will say is …

“Eating healthy takes time”


That’s why I made the video above to demonstrate eating healthy doesn’t take much time.

I know Rachel Ray has her 30 minute meals …

But as you can tell, I got mine done in much shorter of a time!

You have to cook at home!!!

It doesn’t take long.

And that’s basically it!!!!

Can you see the freedom?

No diet plans, no timing, no worries about calories?

The beautiful thing is that when you eat balanced meals at home, using natural unprocessed ingredients, you GET FULL and GET SATISFIED.

Trust me …

When you cook at home, you get much more emotional satisfaction out of food.

You also get more physical and physiological satisfaction too.

This means you get FULL FULL.

No cravings.

(Although you can eat whatever you want too, after you’ve learned eating whatever you want is OK).
