Ask yourself, do you see hunger as a sign of weakness? Do you believe that feeling “full” is a sign of gluttony? Do you feel like you have to “earn” the right to eat certain foods? Do you believe that losing weight is good, and gaining weight is bad? Do you have a habit of grabbing your stomach rolls, stressing over your cellulite, or forbid certain foods from your house because you “can’t control yourself” around them?
These thoughts and behaviors are due to being fed “facts” about food and dieting for our entire lives, specifically when it comes to weight loss or maintaining a certain weight.
A few food rules that come to mind for me include:
“If you feel hungry, you’re probably thirsty. Drink a glass of water.”
“Don’t eat after 7 PM, or you’ll gain fat.”
“Carbs are bad.”
Have you heard of any of these “rules”? Do you have a “rule” to add to the list?
If these rules, thoughts and behaviors sound familiar, it’s likely that you’re living with an unhealthy relationship to food. Why is this problematic? Because you NEED food to survive and nourish your body!
