Eat Yourself Sexy


There is a new Canadian TV show coming to the W Network from the host Gillian McKeith of “You Are What You Eat” (see my post here about her and the show).  The new show is called “Eat Yourself Sexy” and takes 13 unhealthy-eating women and teaches them how to eat themselves sexy. 

Her approach is interesting – she’s not easy but she makes sense. 

“Q: How do you define sexy?

A: Sexy can mean a lot of things, but from my experience it’s believing in yourself. It’s not so much what you look like, but having confidence, inner confidence.

Most of the ladies, when they first come to me, don’t like themselves. They tell me they hate the way they look and hate everything about their bodies. I tell them they’ll have to work hard to get to a place where they can look at themselves and like what they see.

Q: Is that why Eating Yourself Sexy is the ultimate goal? And not Eat Yourself Skinny?

A: I don’t care about the skinny part. Women need to stop weighing themselves and stop becoming fixated on how many pounds they’ve lost that day. That creates a negative relationship with food. If you eat the right foods, your weight will eventually take care of itself.

Q: What links eating well with feeling sexy? Anything to do with chocolate, oysters or other aphrodisiacs?

A: If you eat food with a high nutritious component, you are going to feel better. Food affects mood. Food affects how you think. Food affects how you feel. And food certainly affects how you look.

I know from my ladies – I’ve been doing this for 20 years – if someone is eating rubbish, they feel like rubbish. They’re tired, lethargic, they have all the ailments of the day. And when they switch the other way (to eating healthy food), these ailments lessen or eradicate, they have more energy, they feel better.
