the way that we understand what we’re
doing so the thoughts that we have about
our Keadle eating will determine whether
or not we’re successful in our Kido
eating
hello Wellness Warriors welcome to
Mind Blowing Health and Wellness with Violet
for those of you who don’t know who I am
my name is Violet Reveira I’m a
psychologist and I work out of Montreal
Canada the reason that I make these
videos is because our physical health
and our mental health come together to
create an overall sense of well-being
today we’re talking about the idea of
how we conceptualize our diet
determining whether or not we’re
successful with our diet and actually I
want to make this even more specific and
talk about the idea of diet versus
dieting and I’m going to use an analogy
to help everyone to understand the
difference between diet the way that I
eat and dieting something I do for a
period of time to lose weight so let’s
imagine for a second that you are
driving a really old inefficient car and
this car is costing you money because
first of all it breaks down every three
weeks to two months and it’s costing you
anywhere between a few hundred dollars
to fix it to a few thousand dollars to
fix it every time this car is
inefficient and it’s causing you
problems because every time it breaks
down you are either late for work or
unable to make it to work which means
that you don’t get paid when you’re not
able to get paid that also affects your
ability to continue to pay for the car
so this car is causing problems in your
life and in your work so one day you
make it the decision I need to change my
car scenario number one you go to your
parents and it turns out your parents
are going on vacation for six months and
your parents say to you oh you plan to
change your car well here you can use
our car for the next sens months we’re
going to be away and you’re like great
and your parents say there’s conditions
while you’re using our car you need to
pay our car payments now your parents
car is a much nicer car than your car
you have to pay their car payments while
we’re away you need to pay our insurance
and that much nicer car has much higher
insurance while you’re away while we’re
away you have to be obviously
responsible for the gas and obviously we
want our car to be in the same condition
that we would have kept it so every week
you need to take that car and get it
washed you listen to their offer and you
decide you know what it’s worth it it’s
gonna help me to get to work on time and
it’s gonna solve this issue that I’m
having with my car and looking at the
numbers you think I can afford it it’s
gonna be tough but it’s gonna be better
than paying repairs every two months two
three every three weeks to two months
and not really knowing how much time the
paper per repair sometimes that being
thousands of dollars so you look at all
the numbers and you really feel like you
can do it so now you’re driving your
parents car to work and as you’re doing
this over the course of weeks you start
to realize a few things first of all
you’re getting to work always on time
you’re a much less stressed because you
know you’re gonna get to work on time
you don’t you’re not worried about the
car and you get some feedback from your
boss and he’s so much happier with the
fact that you’re arriving on time that
you’re you’re not missing days of work
and your boss lets you know that hey
he’s impressed with your work in general
but had it talked to you about this
promotion that’s coming up because he
wasn’t sure about whether he’s gonna
keep you or not because you were always
missing work or you were late all the
time so now this is terrific having a
reliable car put me in the position
where I’m probably gonna get a promotion
my boss isn’t considering firing me
anymore I’m not stressed everything is
going well so as the months roll forward
things are going really well at work and
you start to realize that wait a minute
it’s soon time for my parents to come
back from vacation what’s gonna happen
when my parents come back I have to give
them back the car and guess what I’m
back to driving my car that was giving
me all these problems and causing me to
have not be at work which was exactly
what my boss was hating and all of a
sudden even though you still have three
four months to go before your parents
are gonna return you start to worry
about the fact that well when they come
back I’m gonna have to give them back
the car and then I’ll be back in that
same situation and maybe I’m gonna get
fired because now I know that piece of
information so for the rest of the time
that you are focusing on your parents
return now your
this is not where it needs to be and you
start to make mistakes at work now
you’re stressed and worried and you
start to make mistakes at work you are
now in the position where you don’t
trust what you’re doing is gonna lead to
the results that you need it to lead to
because you know you have to go back to
that other car in case you haven’t
figured it out yet guys this is the
dieting situation we’re changing our
diet and we’re getting results but we
know that at some point we’re gonna go
back to that other diet that we were
doing before that caused the problems in
the first place
and even sometimes while we’re on the
diet and doing progress because we know
that we can’t sustain this it’s
frustrating and sometimes we don’t even
complete what we were trying to complete
in the first place because if this
person keeps stressing out about the
fact that their job relies on this car
and makes me keeps making mistakes even
though they have the car their boss
might change their mind and think it’s
not a way it wasn’t that he was late it
was just that maybe this person can’t do
the job because now that they’re not
late they’re still messing up let’s
compare that to the scenario where you
buy your car so if I buy my car I’m
gonna choose a car based on what I can
afford so then because I can afford the
car the insurance for the car will be
also within the range of what I can
afford and because I can afford both the
car payment and the insurance of course
I have to pay gas and that’s something
you already know basically what’s
happening here as you can listen to me
talk is that because I’m talking about
what I can afford
I’m gonna buy a car that suits my needs
because I’m gonna buy a car that’s at a
price range that I know I can afford
I’ve already started to plan for the
idea that I need to make these car
payments well into the future
now of course it’s my car so I decide
how often I do car washes I’m still
gonna have to do maintenance but because
it’s a new car I’m not gonna be doing
maintenance that could come in at three
or four thousand dollars unexpectedly
because it’s a new car right away what
you can see is that I’m making my
decisions based on what I can do well
into the future
but there’s more benefits because what
you’re gonna also notice is that all the
pluses that came along with my parents
car is still going to be here my boss is
still gonna be super impressed that I
make it to work on time my boss is still
gonna tell me about his plans
to promote me but now because I know I
have this car and it’s not gonna change
all of my actions towards getting that
promotion you’re gonna stay in line
because I’m not gonna be stressed about
having to give the car up I’ll be able
to focus on doing a good job the same
good job that I was always doing except
that I was worried about my car scenario
two is called diet as a lifestyle diet
as what I eat every day when I’m
planning my meals well into the future
and I know this is what I will eat
forever then I plan appropriately that
means I’m gonna choose foods that I like
that means I’m going to cook in a way
that I like if I don’t like cooking
everyday I’m gonna meal plan in a way
that I cook every few days if I don’t
like beef I won’t eat it I’ll find some
other meat that’s gonna fall in line
with what I’m trying to do because it’s
the meat that I like basically when you
look at diet as a lifestyle rather as
dieting you start to recognize that the
way that you will be successful is to
understand that this is something that
you’re doing well into your future I
need people to understand very clearly
that when we are on the standard
American diet the standard Canadian diet
when we’re doing that we have every
intention of going forward living this
life forever
eating these foods forever the foods
that are ruining our health we plan to
eat them forever but when you find out
that these foods are ruining your health
the only thing that I’m asking you to do
is when you are changing your diet plan
planet forever so whatever changes you
make make sure that they are towards
foods that you love that tastes amazing
to you that you know I’ll be happy to
eat this going forward the same way that
most people have five to seven staple
meals that they make throughout their
week you could have five to seven staple
meals that you make that fall in line
with your low carb or fall in line with
your keto or fall in line with whatever
paleo whatever is lifestyle that you’ve
decided to do
that’s healthier for you this isn’t
about depriving yourself it’s about
eating a healthy nutritious way well
into your future this is why it’s
important for you to choose a diet
that’s biologically sound that helps you
to lose weight in a healthy manner and
in a strategy that’s going to be
sustainable because you’re choosing a
diet not dieting I want to thank all my
