What is food guilt? We've all done it to ourselves, one bad food choice leads to throwing in the towel on the entire day. That gross feeling and disappointment with ourselves, that is food guilt. Beating yourself up and assigning emotion to your food choices is the essence of food guilt.
Looking at yourself as good or bad based on your food choices - that is food guilt.
Here's what I want you to consider: Is it working for you?
Is it improving your choices or is it keeping you stuck in a negative cycle of your own creation that leads to more choices you feel badly about?
Does it help you feel better about yourself, or help you make a better choice the next time you think about cheating? Chances are it doesn't, and it never will. So you've got to stop beating yourself up over FOOD!
In today's episode, I'll be diving into why food guilt doesn't work, why you should stop it, and what you should be doing instead.
