5 steps to end the battle with food & your body

You deserve to enjoy all of the delicious foods this holiday season, but I know that can be difficult because…

  • I want all the things but I’m also scared of what that means for my body. 
  • I don’t know if I’ll be able to control myself around food.
  • I find the holidays are a triggering time and therefore my eating habits change. 
  • I’m feeling social anxiety and food becomes a bit of a crutch.
  • I’ve spent so much time at home the last couple years, I’m worried about how friends/family will view me when they see me.

Here Are 5 Tips for Enjoying Food:

  1. Avoid restricting, as this leads to overeating and binging.
  2. Eat consistently throughout the day to keep blood sugar stable and to minimize big cravings. (I remember in the past not eating all day so that I could eat all the yummy things at the parties but then I’d be so hungry I’d eat ALL THE THINGS and more).
  3. Think about how you’ll feel AFTER eating.
  4. Try mindful eating: 
    1. Sit down while you’re eating.
    2. Chew your food. 
    3. Notice the flavours, textures, and smells. 
    4. Try eating with your non-dominant hand to help you slow down.
  5. Remember there are no good or bad foods. Different foods serve different purposes.  Fuel yourself based on your needs. 

Remember that YOU ARE NOT WHAT YOU EAT.  There is no perfect way to eat and eating is one teeny tiny part of your big beautiful life. 

What do the holidays mean to you?  Is it about connecting with loved ones, disconnecting from screens, celebrating, resting, or reflection? Consider how food can support you or play a role in these things and make choices accordingly. 

Cheering you on!
