We have to lose the belief that some foods are “good” and some are “bad.” You’re probably thinking I’m being hypocritical because I often write about the dangers of certain foods and ingredients in them. But hear what I am saying. In order to be able to lose weight in a truly healthy way and establish a healthy relationship with your body and with food, changing your perception is key. If you punish yourself and consider you have been “bad” if you ate something you consider “bad” – that’s a problem!
Food was provided to us by God to nourish and sustain our bodies and also for enjoyment and fellowship! He’s also given us the ability to make our own choices. So some days you may make very good, healthy choices that align with your goals and other days you may not. That doesn’t ruin everything and it doesn’t make you “bad” on that day. It doesn’t even make it a bad day!
In Today’s the Day I work with clients through the initial 7 weeks to help them understand how to make the best choices for them. Those are not exactly the same for everyone. We are all unique and some foods that work well for me will not for you. That’s ok. This is why I call Today’s the Day a blueprint – we personalize the plan to your specific needs.
That’s also why my focus is on the quality of food and taking baby steps. (Finish here)
