My clients look at me funny when I tell them they can eat whatever they want. Once we let loose and allow our body what it needs, then we experience less of the mental tag-of-war which only leads to weight gain and a vicious cycle of binging and guilt. Can you relate?
A couple of weeks ago, my 10 friends and I went for an amazing hike. The weather was great and the people were wonderful. I was so filled with joy and positivity, and we hiked for over 3 hours. After that we went to a brewery and each had a sausage sandwich that hit the spot. Most of my clients would have felt guilty and labeled this as a bad eating day. But why do we do that? Why do we torture ourselves and unknowingly turn on our sympathetic system to physiologically trigger the body to retain weight? When we stress out this much about good food and bad food, we gain weight….period.
It’s not what we do once in a while, it’s what we do all the time that matters. So, go and enjoy a beer, glass of wine, a burger, dessert, etc. without the guilt and treat your body well on a regular bases. We should never aim to eat perfect. That would be NO fun.
I ended this beautiful Sunday with a nice warm shower and made myself a nice pot of vegetable soup for the week. It was just what my body wanted….warm soup, sweet vegetables, and some relaxing time before Monday.
Let me help you find some balance so you that you can live a life without restrictions, deprivation, guilt, and possible alienation from friends/family who don’t understand your judgment with food.
