I secretly like to think that everyone suffers from guilt when it comes to food.
Different levels of course, one person for example may be tormented with guilt after indulging in one biscuit whereas for another person it may take them eating the whole packet before the guilt sets in!
The question is why? Why do we need to torment ourselves simply for eating? Yes I know a lot of people over eat and that’s not healthy either.
But the constant self-hate does nothing to our mental health either or our motivation!
WE ARE ALLOWED TO EAT SOMETHING NAUGHTY EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE.
If you are healthy eating don’t punish yourself for having a treat just be sensible. Just because you had a treat of a bacon sandwich / any naughty breakfast, doesn’t mean you have free reign of the chocolate and crisps. Treat in moderation, don’t dwell on guilt, enjoy and move on!
And for the people who aren’t on a weight loss journey who also suffer from guilt, STOP beating yourself up!!!
You are allowed the occasional treat, you don’t have to feel bad. I’m sure you work hard to maintain a healthy body and lifestyle and anyone that works hard deserves a pat on the back! So your occasional treat is your pat on the back!
What do you think?
Does guilt have an impact on you?
Does your relationship with food suffer?
I am curious to hear lot of different opinions so please leave a comment 🙂
