Guilt Has No Place With Food.
As you might imagine, I, like many people who work in the fitness industry, have had to overcome mindset issues around food.
If you’ve ever experienced guilt around food, this message is for you. That is to say, I understand.
I know what it’s like to beat yourself up for eating that piece of cake or for eating junk food all weekend.
Waking up bloated and full of regret, yes, I can relate to that.
Trust me, I know what it’s like to judge myself and my inability to make the “right choices” 100% of the time.
But I’m here to tell you that guilt has no place with food for several reasons:
o You can’t undo what you’ve just eaten anyway
o Shame and guilt make you actually feel worse, which can increase cravings, and create a negative spiral in your eating habits
o Beating yourself up increases stress hormones, which store body fat and increase cravings
o You can create chronic stress or even eating disorders when you place guilt and shame around food
Above all, make choices based on your goals, how you want to feel after eating, and how healthful you desire to be.
When you get off track (as we all do), move on. For example, don’t do the following: 1. Firstly, don’t guilt yourself. 2. Secondly, blaming or shaming won’t work either. 3. Thirdly ,negative self-talk kills.
For example, you can change your trajectory with the very next meal. It’s really that simple.
In conclusion, if nutritional support, coaching, and accountability are something you need, fill out the form below.
Yours in Health,
