Diet mentality vs intuitive eating
Diet culture is everywhere. It tells you that you can’t rely on your own internal cues and instead need to create a bunch of rules and restrictions. It’s easy to internalise those messages, which creates and maintains a diet mentality. ⠀⠀ Living your life on a diet is miserable and unsustainable. If you are struggling with the diet mentality, know that it can get better. It takes a lot of work, trust and patience but I guarantee that it will be worth it. You'll have so much more energy, mentally and physically, so that you can focus on the stuff that really matters in life.
