Okay are you ready for this??? The latest diet craze/fad is called the "Snob Diet". I am serious. According to Glamour Magazine why eat low cal or fat free when you can eat quality foods at a smaller portion? "Real" food has flavor and aroma that goes directly to your brain which signals your stomach and registers fullness. Rice cakes and fat free dip doesn't have the same sensory effect and leaves you unsatisfied. Makes sense? yes.
So you ask - How exactly do I eat like a snob? Check out the tips below.
1. Choose the highest - quality foods possible. Use the freshest best ingredients, pull out your cook books and actually cook.
2. Don't deny cravings: give yourself permission to eat what you really like, keep portions under
control, eat mindfully.
3. If it's truly not delicious don't eat it - processed is not delicious. Greek yogurt with fresh berries is.
I guess when I first saw this article I was offended by the word "snob" but if you actually think about it - it makes perfect sense. Fresh fruits and vegetables, real ice cream or Gelato, roasted almonds, good Artisan cheese, home made anything is much better for your mind body and spirit than a bunch of "diet" low fat, no fat, fat free, chemical laden processed food.
