“I need a bandaid, mom”.
This is the hand symbol that comes to mind when I think about restricting myself from foods I love!
I watch people around me not eating carbs, refraining to eat til noon, drinking juices all day, munching on spinach, following all these “diet” trends that make them miserable and it makes me so sad! It doesn’t have to be that way! Food is meant to aide our bodies in working well and to be ENJOYED, not feel like a punishment! If you deprive yourself, you’ll likely end up binging, feeling guilty and in a constant state of yo-yoing. All the enjoyment is taken out of something that should be a wonderful experience. I’m so thankful for the gift of taste because I sure do like to reeeeeally enjoy my bites 😆😋.
If you experience this battle with food like I have in the past, please reach out. Being freed from it once and for all has made me so passionate about what has helped me get there. Tips, tricks, mindset switches, giving my body all the things it wants and thrives off of has me feeling the most energy and satisfaction I’ve ever felt. I’m full, content, and most of all, it’s not a challenge for me anymore for the most part (except during the holidays when I may get a little out of hand 😆💁🏻♀️.)
When you give your body what it needs, it doesn’t go looking for more. Balanced macros, portioned and tailored to my individual goals and lifestyle has been a game changer. Tasty and easy to flexibly follow are the 2 things I’m most interested in cause I ain’t got time or interest in cardboard food that takes a lot of preparation time I don’t have. The longer I’ve done it, the easier it gets, just like anything else.
I’d love to share it with you if you have goals to become healthier in 2020! Let me know!
