Like a lot of people I avoided carbs like the PLAGUE during my disordered eating days. ❌ I mean, they made you fat, right?? 🙈 WRONG!
.
Carbs are our bodies preferred energy source. Your BRAIN needs carbs each day! By listening to diet cultures lies and avoiding carbs I was literally putting my brain on the line. Nottttt the best idea, huh?🤔
.
It sounds extreme, but think about it. The last time you went on an extremely low carb diet, how did you feel? My guess is not the best. And if you’re like me and like to workout, chances are your workouts suffered, too.
.
Learning to make peace with food means learning to make peace with things like carbs. Honestly, it was super tough for me to do. It’s like “carbs=bad” has been tattooed on our foreheads or something. 🙅‍♀️But, no. It’s just a diet culture lie.
.
So, friends, have the sandwich. Enjoy the crackers. Your body will be thankful that you’re providing it with adequate energy. And, by doing so, you’re MUCH less likely to binge on high-carb foods. 🙌🏻
