You will not become nutrient deficient from one day of imbalanced eating. It takes time. And you may start to feel not so good if you’re constantly eating the same thing, so you will eventually gravitate towards something different.
Trust that your body will get what it needs.
It’s okay to eat. It’s okay to keep eating even when you should be full. Even when you’re not sure if you’re hungry, but you want to keep eating. It’s okay.
Common scenario: you’re getting ready for the day and you’ve got a cute top on, but when you go to slip on your pants, you can barely button them up. They may be cutting into your waist, unable to close, and just plain too tight. Regardless of where you are with your body image, this moment of being too expansive for your clothing can set off internal panic. You wonder what happened between this moment and the last time you wore these pants? Did you expand that much in one week? Why do you still even care about these things? One simple trigger has the potential to ruin your whole day if you let it.
Healthy eating includes all foods at all times. It’s about eating what you want when you want, while also eating to properly nourish your body. Healthy eating is a form of self care, not self punishment.
With so many health blogs and social media accounts, it can be challenging to determine which sites are providing legitimate health information, and which are stretching the truth or flat out making things up. First hint: anyone claiming to be able to provide instant results with an expensive supplement is probably not legit.
When you gain or lose weight, you don’t also magically become the person you always wanted to be. It’s just weight. If you’re expecting to feel better about yourself, you’re going to need to work on the way you see yourself, not just the way others see you.
