My Diet Personality Summary

Post placeholder image

I am once again staring into the mirror and not sure who the person is staring back at me. It is particularly frustrating because I really don’t over-eat. I don’t have bags of cookies or sweets in the food pantry. I just make really bad food choices. For example, instead of a nice salad, I’ll want to have a burger with fries. I know this is just another excuse of sort, but its true and I’m feeling somewhat frustrated as I would really like to get rid of weight I’ve gained since moving to London. I was actually doing quiet well until April when I came down with acute-bronchitis. That put me out of commission from the gym for over a month. And it’s been hard to get back into the routine. I am taking regular Nordic walks throughout my local parks, but it’s clearly not enough. That said, I’m going to try and not beat myself up too much. I am a work in progress. However, with only four months to go before I’m on a beach in Montserrat, something must be done. And no, that does not mean another crazy diet. I’m sick of diets. I’m just going to start keeping a food journal so I can be more aware of what I’m putting into my body each day.

Your eating personality is Fruitless Feaster
The Fruitless Feaster enjoys a colorless, plain meat-and-potatoes type diet with the exception of the odd glass of juice or piece of fruit. Your main food choices are proteins, breads, pastas, desserts and, of course, fats. When you skip eating low-calorie, fiber-rich fruits and vegetables, you also miss out on their powerful cancer- and heart disease-fighting nutrients.
Your exercising personality is Couch Champion
Couch Champions, like so many of us, are most comfortable on the couch. You have never liked to sweat or feel the burn and don’t really get why people enjoy going to the gym. Besides, all day long at work and at home, you’re a productive person with a very active mind. Okay, so you know you could be in better physical shape than you are, but there’s got to be a better way than having to get out the old gym bag!
Your coping personality is Emotional Eater
Emotional Eaters turn to food when they’re stressed, anxious, lonely or depressed. Food is like a comforting friend who helps you feel better short-term but never really solves any of your problems. Are you ready for a new solution to help you both short- and long-term?
