    While it’s a fine idea — tuning out all the conflicting messages — it’s a tad ambitious. Might I suggest the more realistic goal of simply acknowledging the mixed messages, then (re)committing to taking a kinder, gentler stance toward your diet, your body… your whole self.

      Yes, but my hope is that acknowledging the mixed messages is the first step to being able to shut them out to some extent. It never really occurred to me that I kept eating until a TV show is over, but I think I had been doing that. Now I stop and think.
