Ooooweeee I know how draining and frustrating this is.
Before I fixed my relationship with food, that’s all I was thinking about.
This is actually why I got interested in the psychology of food. It is such a delicate subject as it’s something that can really consume a persons life.
𝐓𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐬𝐨 𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐲 𝐟𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐨 𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐲 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐭𝐥𝐲 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐟𝐨𝐨𝐝:
- Eating disorders (very sensitive topic)
- Hormonal issues (ever feel like you can lick a piece of lettuce and gain weight?)
- Digestive and absorption inefficiencies (you can eat all the greatness the world but if your body is not absorbing it, your body is always going to feel in “need”)
- Restrictive eating and diets (restriction triggers the brain and all you focus on are the restricted foods)
- Ignoring your hunger signals in purse of weight/fat loss (remember if you put your body under this kind of stress, you actually counteract what you want, your body will “hold on”)
- Emotional/boredom eating
- Are you really filling your plate with nutrients or are you having coffee as food replacement in hopes of restricting calories?
We need to have more in our lives that’s rewarding so that eating is only a “side dish” among many activities that bring us joy.
