Better Your Relationship With Food

I. Understand Your Relationship with Food

  • Identify any negative beliefs or emotions you may have surrounding food.
  • Acknowledge how your past experiences with food and eating habits may have affected your relationship with food.  Journal how you feel and what fears you have around certain foods. 


II. Practice Mindful Eating

  • Pay attention to your hunger and fullness cues.
  • Savor the flavors, textures, and aromas of your food.
  • Eat slowly and without distractions like computers, in front of TV and phones.


III. Make Balanced Food Choices

  • Aim for a variety of nutrient-dense foods with a fun flexible treat. 
  • Incorporate a balance of carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats in your meals
  • Limit processed and high-sugar foods that do not have a little fiber. We need fiber!

IV. Listen to Your Body

  • Tune in to your body’s signals to determine what foods work well for you.
  • Respect your body’s needs and preferences and do not set up anti foods. 
  • Avoid restrictive diets and instead focus on nourishing your body and fueling it. 


V. Practice Self-Care

  • Engage in activities that reduce stress and promote relaxation techniques. We all carry too much stress. 
  • Get enough sleep and exercise regularly. Walk 7000-10,000 steps a day when you can.
  • Seek support from friends, family, or a professional if needed to support your needs and progression. 


VI. Avoid Comparisons and Judgment

  • Avoid comparing your body or food choices to others. Comparison steals your daily joy. 
  • Refrain from labeling foods as “good” or “bad” as often as you can. This is a common practice that keeps you feeling restricted. 
  • Focus on your own journey and progress with the known fact that this will take time to work on so do not give up. 


By implementing these practices, you can improve your relationship with food and develop a healthier and more positive attitude towards eating.
