As you begin to ditch the diet mentality and give intuitive eating a chance-you will find several foods that you once “liked” (because they were an alternative to what you really wanted) are actually gross 🤣For me one food in particular -protein bars. When I was living with a diet mentality I thought protein bars were the best thing EVER! I would try to “reduce” my cravings with a QuestBar, Balance Bar, cliff builder bar, Think Thin Bar- instead of whatever I really wanted. Oh probably a brownie or chocolate chip cookie? Funny thing, those things are packed with fake fiber that my body absolutely hated. TMI but as a dietitian this is the stuff we talk about 💁🏼‍♀️Not only did they cause tons of discomfort/gas but also led to irregular 💩digestion FO days! But I was convinced it was better for my body than a cookie 🤔 not to mention it did NOT “reduce” or “help” with cravings. The only way to reduce cravings is to actually eat the food you are craving. #novelidea 🤦🏻‍♀️ when I walk down this isle I have an overwhelming sense of gratitude. I do not have to eat foods that make me feel miserable and when I have a “Hankering” for something. I eat that something 👏🏻🎉👏🏻🎉👏🏻 Let me be clear- not all bars are created equal and there are some really great ones that aren’t so hard on our digestive system. Bars can be a great option on the go! Lastly, this could apply to any diet food ☝🏼Not just protein bars! If you like them and they don’t make you feel like poop, then eat them! That’s why it’s important that we listen to our OWN body because after all we are the expert of our own body. 🧐🧐🧐

One of (or quite possibly THE) top way to engross readers into your world is the classic SHOW versus TELL method.

Our little dude went and got his parking pass all by himself. I guess if we don’t do it for him - he will just do it himself. #novelidea #proudmom #raisingaman

Since I did two prompts in one yesterday, here's a WIP for a prompt later this month...a humanized dragon. I came up with a pretty cool backstory for her too...I'll just add it to my ever-growing "novels I need to write" list. -_- #smaugust #bekwilsonart #smaugust2018 #dragon #golddragon #horns #scales #humandragon #blondehair #cateyes #digitaldrawing #procreate #ipadmini #digitalart #digitalpainting #fantasycreature #fantasyart #fantasy #artistsoninstagram #artchallenge #wip #futurenovel #novelidea #writerproblems

“Just voted best place to buy high-tech clothing in San Francisco,” said the cheerful assistant behind the counter. “Even if it is the only one in town,” she added with a wry smile! @ministryofsupply is on Fillmore Street in SF.

How certainly true is this? When I'm itching to write, I often can't get the story out fast enough. And this is where plotting comes in mighty handy: I'm able to write the story in my head, while also hitting just the key moments so I can move through it as quickly as possible. #wordgoals #amwriting #mustread #writerslife #writerlythings #justwriterlythings #amreading #amediting #writersofinstagram #authorsofinstagram #book #novelidea #bookish #authorlife #novel #writetip #writingadvice #writers #writing #writewritewrite #writinggoals #motivation #inspiration #quotes #authorpreneur #personalgrowth #motivated #bestlife #writingblog #quotestagram

What does it truly feel like to write a #novel? It's feels like pinpricks across your fingers and a slow stabbing in the heart.

Well now, that's a novel idea! Saw this at Sandalford winery on the weekend.

Gilbert Gottfried tweets a very punny joke about #nationalbookloversday and everybody dogpiles on with groanworthy comments. #puns #leafitalone #spineless #novelidea #funnytweet #bookjokes #verypunny

Trying to sketch out my character Lisa Martin. She's from a book series and is a private investigator. She has a habit of getting in over her head and aspires to be a world class detective. The one with the arrow is closest to her I think. #art #characterdesign #originalcharacter #artistofinstagram #comicidea #bookidea #novelidea #doodles #doodlesofinstagram #pencilsketch
