I can’t tell you how many times I’ve woken up and felt like a piece of Shit due to the amount I mindlessly ate the night before... then gone straight for a run as a kind of self flagellation to try and “burn it off” or relieve my guilt.
Now I eat what I enjoy and stop eating when I stop enjoying. So the only thing I have to think about after was how delicious it was...
How do you get to this point…?
You need to move away from this diet mentality of:
🚩 good and bad foods
🚩 all or nothing
🚩 living for the weekend
🚩 cheat meals
🚩 shoulds and shouldn’ts
🚩 earning food
🚩 burning off foods
🚩 ‘saving up’ calories
🌮 Unconditional permission to eat.
🍕 Food freedom.
🍩 Acceptance and neutrality.
🥗 No moral attachment to foods.
Become more aware of and work on the drivers, thoughts, feelings that lead to over eating and/or using food as a form of control or self soothing…
This is all easier said than done of course.
Like everything it requires practice.
Like everything you’ll probably fuck it up a few times.
And that’s ok.
Things that will help you:
💃🏼 Moving your body in ways that feel good and not to burn calories or to make yourself smaller.
🏋️ Strength training
