What is skinny thinking?

Laura Katleman-Prue
Nutrition & Dietetics
Skinny thinking is not a diet; it's about creating a new relationship to food that automatically results in greater health and a healthier weight. Diets are temporary. People are willing to stick to them for a while in order to lose weight, but then they stop and go back to their old habits. The goal of skinny thinking is to change your fundamental relationship to food by changing how you habitually think about it. If you don't do that, you might as well hang it up right now. No diet, no matter how vigilant you are, is going to work long term without that component.

Skinny thinking encourages you to:
  • Permanently change your diet, and
  • Change your relationship to food.
