Raise your hand if this sounds like you! 🙋♀️ the question is... why would it tempt you? For one thing, it's tasty, but something is more tempting when you're not allowed to have it. It's the whole "fear of missing out" kinda thing. There's even a sense of grief because that food might have been a source of pleasure and happy memories that "now will be no more" once the diet starts. It could have been a comfort or maybe the only appealing food. Rebellion kicks in, and says, "Whatever. Let me see how much I can get in as fast as possible so it'll last me awhile." The unfortunate thing is that it can take you away from hunger and fullness cues, (possibly) take you out of being present while eating, and lead to guilt and remorse for eating said food in whatever amount it was.
What if, though, you didn't give that person/diet plan who told you what, how much, and when to eat that power? What if you and your body were the ones in charge of those choices? Yes, there is the fear of losing control and never stopping, but your body does have mechanisms to stop- food doesn't taste as good after a lot of it... you get uncomfortably full... AND the food becomes less exciting. We've been taught not to trust our natural sense of how to eat. It's that mistrust that is the center of most people's issues with food.
