Eat, Drink & Be Merry Celebrating International No Diet Day 2015 at Cupitt’s Winery
Award-winning Cupitt’s Winery in Ulladulla is encouraging people to swap their diet for delectable fare, by celebrating International No Diet Day on Wednesday 6 May with a feast few will be able to resist – a delicious three-course meal from their a la carte menu for just $65. International No Diet Day celebrates diversity, body acceptance and encourages the promotion of a healthy lifestyle. It champions the measurement of well being in a diverse ways including laughter, learning, rest, play, reflection and socialising.
Cupitt’s Restaurant Manager Libby Cupitt is encouraging everyone to forget the scales and calorie counting for one day, by actively engaging in No Diet Day by enjoying a relaxed meal at the Cupitt’s vineyards, without a guilty conscience. “Society can have an unhealthy preoccupation with dieting, food and weight. We need to shift this mindset to a focus on a healthy lifestyle. For us, International No Diet Day is not about overeating and throwing good food habits out the window – it is about recognising that food is a vehicle for enjoyment. Sharing food with your friends and family is one of life’s greatest pleasures we can take for granted,” Libby says.
Master Trainer at Em PT Ulladulla, and Advanced Diploma in Nutritional Medicine Student, Emily Bingham adds: “Balance is about enjoying each day with the food, activity and lifestyle choices you make, that can be maintained for the rest of your life. Fitness and health is a commitment – it’s a lifestyle choice.”
International No Diet Day raises awareness of the dangers of dieting, and reminds adults they need to be role models for the younger generation who can often feel pressured to be a certain size. At the end of 2012 it was estimated that eating disorders affected nearly one million Australians, with most young people know at least one other young person who they think might have an eating disorder. Dieting is the single most important risk factor for developing an eating disorder.
