3 things that food should not involve
Eating 'normally' is hard. We are constantly bombarded by messages about different types of foods, pressured to eat 'clean' and told that we need to control our intake at all times to be 'in control'. This leads to anxiety about what and how much we are eating, guilt after we think we have overeaten or eaten something 'bad' as well as a lot of judgement about our own eating habits (and sometimes those of others).
It is so important to challenge these messages and change our automatic emotions, thoughts and behaviours that occur in response to them. This isn't easy to do. It takes hard work, patience, self-compassion and a lot of trial and error. However, it is possible to create and maintain a healthy relationship with food. Don't settle for feeling like shit around food, you are worth so much more.
