Well, it appears to be official, "eating for pleasure" is on track to become the hottest new diet trend. GREAT article in the New York Times yesterday by Tara Parker Pope entitled "Instead of Eating to Diet, They're Eating to Enjoy," definitely worth reading. The article sites a shift toward “positive eating” — people are shunning deprivation diets and instead focusing on adding seasonal vegetables, nuts, berries and other healthful foods to their plates. Finally! Apparently the number of dieters is down-shifting. According to market research, 39% of women and 29% of men were dieting in 1990. Today, stats have dropped to 26% and 16% respectively.
Check it out...are you on the bandwagon?
