Whether you’re doing intermittent fasting, eating a paleo diet, counting your calories, or all of the above, your weight loss success comes down to the concept of needs… or more accurately, what you don’t need.
The common thinking is that you need to eat more fruit, more vegetables, more grass-fed meat.
Or you need to include more colors in your diet. Or maybe you need to eat more antioxidant.
Or you need to eat 6 small meals a day, keeping your eye on the clock. Or you need to eat more protein. Perhaps you need to eat less fat, or less carbs, or less meat. Or you need to eat at certain times.
You need, need, need.
The reality is this: you need to have less need.
If you eat whole, real food, you don’t need to think about colors, nor do you need to think about antioxidants, proteins, carbs, or fat.
If you truly listen to your stomach, and stop believing you have dietary needs, you don’t have to eat by the clock, and you don’t have to eat all the time.
People believe they need to eat this or that, or eat like this or like that, when they simply don’t need to eat.
Eating needs have been mutated so much through the generations that we no longer know its true meaning.
