$100 Loblaws Gift Card it for Canada Only
It’s been at least a few years that I made the decision to try and not use the word dieting and if I slip up occasionally and do use it I don’t feel guilty about it. The reason I don’t feel guilty is because in this house the word “dieting” does not mean starvation, fad diets and more it means our diet of eating healthy foods as much as possible. We just try to say healthy eating or good nutrition.
I admit when I was in my late 20s and early 30s I dieted, I tried fad diets, I obsessed a little bit about weight after I gained so much weight after my daughter was born. However as my daughter got older and in particular by the time she started school I realized that I was her role model, her main role model at that point and that I had to be a better example through my actions and words. I was even more determined to not use the word diet or talk about losing weight when it turned out my daughter who is quite slim really needs to gain weight.
Out went the word dieting and we focused more on healthy eating which has made a difference in our lives. My daughter who used to get sick all of the time is now the opposite she doesn’t get sick as often. Healthy eating, taking the right supplements and more has been amazing for us. Now want to empower others to take the No Dieting Oath!
Did you know that: in a recent survey commissioned by Multi-Grain Cheerios examining young women ages 10-17 revealed some compelling stats:
- 3 in 5 women have been on a diet
- 52% of girls get their information about dieting and nutrition from family members
- 1 in 5 girls under 18 is currently dieting
In order to end this cycle of destructive dieting, Multi-Grain Cheerios has launched “Generation Healthy”, a program aimed at encouraging women to recognize their self-worth and become part of the solution as a role model living a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
Here’s an important message:
“We believe that nutrition is healthier than deprivation and that dieting is harmful to us and to our children. So let’s embrace a healthy, balanced lifestyle, and empower the next generation to do the same by removing the word dieting from our lives and replacing it with words like nourished, strong, and fulfilled. Let’s use our influence to teach our children to live with healthy balance by living that way ourselves. Together, we can build a healthier future for every generation to come.”
To help create a world without dieting, Multi-Grain Cheerios is encouraging Canadians to take the first step in being a positive, healthy role model by taking the “Never Say Dieting Oath” at WorldWithoutDieting.ca.
You can watch our video of our No Dieting Oath HERE and we want you to feel inspired to take the oath too (don’t worry you don’t have to do a video if you don’t want to 🙂 ).
