Awesome Silly Little Idea

Of all the devious tricks I teach my clients to get themselves to eat super healthy, this one sounds pretty silly and trivial, I know, but it works: You make a nifty little list of all your healthy meals and snacks and you literally POST it in your kitchen. On the fridge, on a cabinet door, whatever.

See the thing is, when you come home from work, or wherever,
and you're tired and crabby and in a low mood,
you're a different person. Like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
It is a well known fact that Mr. Hyde frowns upon broccoli and its ilk.

In these low moods, we don't remember what we know and it feels like
way too much work to TRY to remember. We just think very poorly.
We're like an extra in a George Romero movie, staggering
toward the Cornflakes. But that handy little list, staring
us right in our mouthbreathing face, takes the place of thinking.
It's like a little restaurant menu in your own kitchen.
Try it. Dr. Jekyll will feel so much better in the morning.
