I shared this post on Instagram after I caught myself feeling guilty about eating cheese. If you ever felt guilty because you thought you “should” be eating differently, this one is for you!
I shared in my Instagram stories yesterday that I ate a lot of cheese 😬 I bought three small wrapped blocks of cheese thinking I would go through them in about a week 😅 that didn’t happen 🤦♀️
2 of them were eaten (not binged on) in about 3 days… and then the guilt started to set in 🙄 but then I thought, WHY IS THIS BAD?! And I decided it’s not 👏🏼
I HAVE TO LET GO OF MY EXPECTATIONS FOR HOW I THINK I “SHOULD” EAT…and “just eat”.
3 WAYS TO STOP SHOULD-ING ALL OVER YOUR HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD
1️⃣ I refuse to judge ✨how much to eat based on what the serving size is. Serving sizes are non-specific and non-helpful and RESTRICTIVE to your food freedom journey. You decide how much food you need to eat. PERIOD 😌
2️⃣ I refuse to judge ✨how often to eat a certain food based on previous dieting advice I’ve learned. IF I WANT TO EAT 🧀 FOR EVERY MEAL I CAN DO IT IF I WANT TO 👏🏼 (I didn’t eat it at every meal but it was gone so obviously I had it often 😂)
3️⃣ I refuse to judge ✨my eating habits based on someone else’s healthy relationship with food… aka “diet culture”.
IF I LIKE SOMETHING I WILL EAT IT UNTIL I DON’T WANT IT ANYMORE.
I don’t keep things I like in my house so I can eat them sparingly to enjoy little by little. MY FOOD FREEDOM LOOKS LIKE buying something I really like and eating it until it’s finished over the next few days.
TAKEAWAY: I REFUSE TO FEEL GUILTY FOR EATING MY WAY
IT’S WHAT MY HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD LOOKS LIKE RIGHT NOW ❤️
Stop judging yours if it looks different from someone you look up to or doesn’t meet your own expectations. There is no wrong way to eat 🙌🏼 Stop making rules, stop restricting, and start eating in a way that makes YOU feel good.
PLEASE STOP SHOULD-ING ALL OVER YOURSELF 😂💩
