THE Perfect Diet.

Posted by joe rigs on Friday, August 23, 2013 Under: Get your mind right
My diet is perfect. Not because it’s rigid, flawless and squeaky clean, but because I choose to use the first definition of the word perfect.

adjective: per·fect

1. having all the required or desirable elements, qualities, or characteristics; as good as it is possible to be.

“As good as it is possible to be.” Doesn’t that sounds a lot nicer than rigid, flawless and squeaky clean? Doesn’t that leave a lot of room for interpretation?

Let’s add two little words to the end of that statement: “As good as it is possible to be FOR YOU.” For YOU, not for someone else. Not for the diet gurus of the internets. Not for so-called experts on TV.

YOU set the parameters for what your perfect diet should be.

YOU decide what all the required or desirable elements are.

YOU determine the qualities and characteristics of the food you eat and the life you live.

The required elements should not include things like guilt, shame, regret or anxiety. Those are not characteristics of a healthy diet, or a healthy life.

Whether you’re paleo or vegan or somewhere in between, YOU decide what YOUR perfect is and don’t concern yourself with what other people think.

Do what makes you feel great physically, emotionally and psychologically.

I’ve found my perfect version of Paleo and it includes ice cream.

And sometimes gluten-free cookies. And dark chocolate. And wine.

It also includes love, acceptance, fun, laughter, compassion, friends and family.

And that’s just perfect.
