Intuitive eating and dessert
Food is not just fuel. It should be enjoyable, it should be satisfying and should not be associated with anxiety, guilt or judgement. You deserve to give your body the food it needs. Deprivation does not lead to health or happiness and denying yourself food isn’t sustainable.
The way you talk to yourself has a huge impact. If you are constantly speaking to yourself in a negative way, you are more likely to feel angry, guilty, anxious or stressed.
Instead, allow yourself to eat treats when you want them. Remind yourself that these do not need to be earned or compensated for afterwards. If you practice doing this again and again, it becomes much easier to enjoy your treats and be able to move on afterwards, without feeling anxiety or guilt.
