How to NOT feel guilty eating donuts!

It took me a long time to find food freedom, y'all... 

Eating food gave me so much anxiety, that I would only allow myself to eat white rice and chicken. I avoided everything else. 

Literally, I was afraid to eat BROCCOLI! So there was no way I was going to let myself eat a donut... 

Fast forward two years, and here I am!

I now give myself permission to eat whatever I desire. And best of all, I'm no longer anxious about food! Food doesn't consume me. I've learned to choose foods with INTENTION rather than being led by emotions, cravings, fear or social pressure. 

There were a lot of steps I took that got me to this place; but the first step was to take the morality out of food... 

I stopped labeling foods as "good" or "bad," because I would start to associate myself as a "good" or "bad" person if I would eat those foods. 

So to separate my self-worth from food, I started labeling food differently! 

I now have "frequent foods" and "less frequent foods" that I eat in moderation. 

For me, there are no "cheat meals," only "TREAT MEALS!"  

It's a small tweak of the language, but it can be super effective for changing your relationship with food. 

And the tea is, we all want what we can't have... So the more you restrict yourself, the more likely you are to binge eat. 

Think of it this way: Restricting and depriving yourself of the foods or drinks you love is like a bow and arrow. You pull back, back, back (restrict, restrict, restrict) and at some point, you reach a threshold where you have to let go and swing the other way... Which usually means we end up OVER-INDULGING!
