This week, I read about one of Jessica Biel’s strategies for staying thin:
“You have to find a balance, especially with what you eat. I don’t live by the idea that you can’t allow yourself a treat,” she said.
“I say, ‘Eat things you like, but eat them in smaller portions’. I always cut things in half and send them back. I’m not perfect, I don’t always do those things, but that’s the goal.”
Fine. That’s fine. If Jessica Biel thinks that eating half is ‘allowing herself a treat’, that is her choice.
But that’s pretty wasteful. I mean, if she’s only eating half her cheese soufflé or half her pavlova, then that’s a lot of very good food going in the bin. Good food that would be appreciated by someone else……….
Do you think that she’d let me follow her around and eat her leftovers? Because I would totally be up for it.
