The study was small, however the researchers say the "I don't" participants had greater success than the other two groups because they felt empowered and in control after uttering those words. And this group also said they felt they would continue this experiment because of their success.
So today, I am giving this a try. It's certainly easy enough to do. Plus it's free, an unusual concept in the world of diets.
And when I really think about it, saying "I don't" is something many of us do all the time. I don't want to step on the scale. I don't want to diet. I don't want to exercise. But I know I should.
In most cases, it has a negative connotation. And eating foods that I know are not healthy is one of the most negative things I can do for my body.
So, "I don't" it is.
