Guilt Free Desserts
At this point I have lost 5 inches in circumference, 6 1 2 inches from my waist After my first 40 days on the diet I took one day off. I ate whatever I wanted, some foods I'd missed. I made a very conscious effort to observe how these foods made me feel. Bread made me feel heavy, chocolate mocha made my forehead and nerves tight. I went back on the diet but have been a little looser with it. I added non-fat sugar free desert type yogurts and will occasionally enjoy a special meal with friends.
Now take a breath, close your eyes this time, and try it again. Let the sound stretch out for as long as you can with the support of a deep breath. Use up all your breath, but don't strain yourself. Doesn't that feel good Do it again if you'd like to. Notice how, when your entire body is vibrating with that sound, it's easier to concentrate on the breath and the sound than whether to have dessert with dinner tonight or whether you can convince someone else to do the dishes.
Being virtuous means holding the opposite sex in high esteem and nurturing respect for someone you love. It also means holding yourself in high esteem and refusing to let your body be swayed by its every whim, desire, and want, whether that desire is for a person or for power or for a pound of Hershey's Kisses. Refusing to let your body be swayed by desire certainly doesn't preclude sex, a good promotion, or chocolate, for that matter. Instead, this yama encourages the kind of restraint and attitude towards those things we tend to desire that will help keep our minds clear and focused.

But by month three, I was starting to dream about macaroni and cheese. The sight of my husband eating pizza could make me whimper. And I was plagued by food anxiety Restaurants were minefields, the dishes larded with forbidden ingredients that often weren't even listed. Packaged foods were generally a no-no A quick perusal of labels almost always revealed soybean oil. And for someone with a serious sweet tooth, dessert was the biggest bummer of all With a ban on nuts, cream, and butter, my options seemed impossibly limited. I did have some successes. I found a recipe for an Italian loaf cake made with olive oil, to which I added a handful of chopped rosemary from my garden. The cake was fragrant and earthy, and it satisfied my dessert cravings. And when friends came for dinner, I baked crisp olive oil crackers sprinkled with paprika and coarse sea salt, and served them with eggplant caviar. But with a baby taking up all of my time, I didn't have much time to cook or bake, let alone...
I froze the fiber-rich pulp to use in soups, desserts, and sauces. I turned from timid scientist to intrepid chef, adding a lime here, baby arugula leaves there. And even after the honeymoon period was over, I still found juicing fairly easy to do on a regular basis.
Question them realistically. Are they valid, or am I holding on to those beliefs without any real conviction or reason I have the belief that all people who leave doors open are idiots. Why do I have such a belief It is the same with all our desires. Why do I have such a strong desire to eat five bars of chocolate every day Why do I take such great pains to impress my neighbours The list is endless and you must consider the question yourself. But reflection is important for the process of deconditioning the mind of habituated actions and patterns of thought. Don't suppress your actions under any circumstances but at least try to recognize them and reflect on them.
