I don’t label my food choices, because labeling is what started my eating disorder back when I was a teenager.
Honestly, I have tried a bazillion different diets.
You name it, I tried it.
In my personal experience, calling a restrictive way of eating a “lifestyle” was an excuse for me to continue my disordered behaviours with food.
All diets or “lifestyles” led to the same outcome for me:
My body got very very thin for a while, I was OBSESSED with food and with keeping my weight off and I secretly struggled with binge eating.
Then I’d put some weight back on, freak out and go on another “lifestyle diet”, hoping that this one would finally heal me... It never did.
I stay away from any labels when it comes to food.
I eat food that feels good in my body and I don’t care which diet somebody is on.
I used to feel triggered when diet talk happened around me.
I’d think: “ooh, maybe I should try this intermittent fasting thing/this keto thing/this paleo thing/this sugar detox thing!” Spoiler alert: I tried it all, it was never right for my body and it only perpetuated the cycle of disordered eating.
Everyone’s body is different and what works for aunt Meredith or Susan from work might not work for you. 🙈
Also, chances are that 5 years from now, aunt Meredith and Susan from work won’t be on this “lifestyle diet” anymore either, because there will be some new miracle lifestyle diet out there 😆 .
PS: I’ve posted a similar photo like this a few months back without my handle in it and I’ve seen it reposted and floating around on Insta multiple times, so I wanted to re-post it because it’s so near and dear to my heart ❤️ feel free to repost and share if it resonates with you and tag me in it so I can see it and say hi 🤗
Lastly, I know that some people HAVE to be on a restrictive diet due to health reasons and that is why “eating what feels good in our bodies” applies to everyone in my opinion 😊 happy Monday!! .
