Let’s talk about all or nothing thinking, something that is super common when dieting.
.
You’re trucking along doing “good” by following your diet of the week, but then all of a sudden, a few days in, you see cookies in the break room. 🍪You know diet culture is telling you you “shouldn’t” have one- but, oh, you want one SO bad! So, you grab one, eat it, and feel immediate GUILT. 😫Then you feel like you “blew it” and are off-track with your diet, so might as well have another cookie (or five) before you get back to it! Soon you feel stuffed and ready to head into a food coma until spring. THAT is all or nothing thinking. You either have no cookies, 🙅‍♀️like the first few days of your diet, or have ALL of the cookies, like in the break room.
.
You would have been MUCH better off eating the cookie if you truly wanted it and moving on with your day. When you know you can have something again in the future you avoid the “last supper”’phenomenon, which leaves you stuffed, uncomfortable and feeling less than fab.
.
Finding food freedom allows you to eat the foods you want, without guilt or the urge to binge. After all, you can have these foods ANY TIME, no need to eat yourself sick on them now.
