Labeling a food as โ€œbadโ€ gives it unnecessary power. When you canโ€™t have something, the more youโ€™ll crave and want it.

Imagine, when you donโ€™t have to justify your food choices to yourself or anyone else. Instead of giving a reason for your food choices, allow yourself to eat food that you feel is best for you at that very moment.

Developing a good relationship with food takes time, patience, and kindness toward yourself.

Allow yourself to navigate this journey without judgment, and take it day by day! ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿป
