That would explain why people hyperventilate now wouldn't it?

Well, if you're in a room that smells too good, maybe you'll breathe too
much...

I disagree with this. I love food. Food is terrific, a gift in our
lives. I plan my melas in advance, what you would call dream about
what I am eating tomorrow, so that I may have good healthy choces
that are a joy to my palate asa well. I also plan ahead so I can be
assured that I have meals that sustain my staisfaction as well as
conform to my desired calorie intake.

There is nothing wrong with enjoying food. Enjoyment is a wonderful
thing! There is no superioirity in viewing food as only fuel. If
that attitude works for you, rock on. But for those of us who enjoy
cooking, food will continue to be a wonderful thing to share with
family and friends and to enjoy!


Yes there is nothing wrong with researching recipes and making food
that is a delight to the eye and palate. That can be quite a
satisfying hobby. BUT that does not mean a person can or should eat
every last bite. Eat simply was is need for sustenance and save the
rest for another meal or day. Share with other people.

Many of the WW recipes are a joy to the palate but that is no excuse
to eat too much.

I'm sorry, I don't see where anybody has said that it's ok to eat too
much. Where is the link between enjoying what you eat, and that
meaning that you eat too much?

I don't see how the two would be exclusive...

You misunderstood me. I did not say there was a link. It happens
that some people do eat too much because they enjoy it and/or cooking
it. If they can master the philosophy of eating just what they need,
there is no harm in enjoying eating or cooking food.


I don't think that cooking enjoyable food is a cause for overeating. If
one is an overeater, whether it's good food, bad food, home cooked, or
microwaved in a box, it'll be the same thing.

Eating what you need is the only way to lose weight, but in no way does
it have anything to do with not researching new foods, experimenting in
the kitchen, and/or making sure that every bite is enjoyable. The two
concept just aren't related.. it's comparing oranges with apples.

The trouble comes from the fact that "diet" has two related meanings. *1.
Your regular consumption whether or not you are trying to lose weight is

weight.

For many people, the second definition is the one they always think of and
subconsciously tie it to deprivation AND the thought that someday they will
be "done" and can quit the diet.


Yes, there are many definitions of diet. From dictionary.com some a

1. food and drink considered in terms of its qualities, composition,
and its effects on health: Milk is a wholesome article of diet.
2. a particular selection of food, esp. as designed or prescribed to
improve a person's physical condition or to prevent or treat a
disease: a diet low in sugar.
3. such a selection or a limitation on the amount a person eats for
reducing weight: No pie for me, I'm on a diet.
4. the foods eaten, as by a particular person or group: The native
diet consists of fish and fruit.
5. food or feed habitually eaten or provided: The rabbits were fed a
diet of carrots and lettuce.

Considering the meaning of "diet" as a whole I have no problem saying
my goal is to be on a healthy diet for the rest of my life. I
definitely don't think of it being as an on again / off when done
thing, and don't feel the need to refer to it as a "lifestyle" instead
of a "diet."

Diets sound good to me.
