Diets do work... temporarily. You can label yourself & your way of eating however you’d like Keto, Raw, Paleo, the list goes on....
The problem is a diet is a temporary solution to a permanent problem. You must be brave enough to figure out what’s the real issue(s)!
Shame guilt fear reward stress exhaustion boredom pleasure ..... can you pull the thread? Unravel what’s the underlying issue? Because the issue is not food. Can you say that out loud? THE ISSUE IS NOT THE FOOD ITS YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD.
If you can’t feel okay with that there is something to consider.....pull the thread, peel back the veil, stop trying to be strong and allow yourself to be vulnerable and explore that relationship. Be curious. Be fully alive and aware. Feel deeply. It’s ok to feel all those things you are human. And its ok to indulge once in a while without feelings of guilt, shame and regret, food is comforting it has emotional connections to experience, to people in our lives, to memories. Maybe you need to take a step back and ask yourself what is your end goal really? Restricted deprivation and bingeing or sustainability allowing pleasure joy and comforting and nurturing? Listen to your body’s cues. Honor them.
So stop pursuing your goal body or goal weight in an unsustainable way! Heal your relationship with your body and make peace with food first!
Instead of labeling your way of eating, or living by lists of “good foods” and “bad foods” what if you starting to LISTEN to your body & it’s innate wisdom, and allowing yourself to live the healthiest life possible... in terms of both WHAT you’re eating and HOW YOU FEEL about it!!
I know this is easier said than done it takes patience and practice. Not perfection. Practice.
