Food isn't "good" or "bad" and neither are you.
Your moral value isn't related to your food choices.
I am very sorry that we are all so used to hearing how horrible we are as humans if we choose to eat a cookie, and how amazing and healthy we are if we choose a salad or a diet shake.
It's a systematic issue that profits on our deepest insecurities. Now THAT is wrong. NOT what you are eating.
We need to stop feeling bad about the foods we choose to eat, because it impacts a lot more than our waistlines.
👉It increases our stress levels, which messes with our digestion, and tricks our self worth into thinking it solely relies on the number on the scale.
Now don't get me wrong, FOOD IS POWERFUL, that's the reason I became a Nutritionist in the first place. The funny thing is though, the more I continued to worked with people the more I realized it's our relationship with food that matters most.
This is why our internal narrative around food is so important.
I know introspective work is not nearly as sexy as a magic diet shake that promises the world but hey, it's worth it in the long run, you can't "shed" or "gain" or eat away emotional turmoil.
Pay super close attention to your diaolgue. Question why you feel bad if you eat a cookie. What foods do you fear? Start there.
Understand that there is absolutely nothing wrong with you,
a b s o l u t e l y nothing, if you choose to eat a cookie, chips, a donut...whatever your fear foods are.
Understand that your value has NOTHING to do with your weight.
❌The thing that IS wrong is diet culture.
