I'm often ask what my diet looks like...
Let me start by saying there is no right or wrong way with food as long as you're physically healthy but more importantly MENTALLY healthy!
You have to find what works for you and intuitive eating is what works for me!
Our bodies are incredibly smart, they naturally tell us what we need. *ding ding* cravings!
Cravings are a good thing.
It's our bodies way of expressing it needs something from either an emotional state, a hormonal issue or simply just a need!
These natural cravings get screwed from many things in our lifestyles, but a big one is artificial sweetners!
That's why I try my best to avoid them. They are horrible for you! ( from experience and IMO)
But I eat a wide range of foods from lean meats, complex carbs, fruits and veggies to pastas, ice cream and nachos.
I allow myself what I crave whether it's a donut or green beans and move on!
I've learned to enjoy food while also looking at food as fuel!
My mind doesn't go to "good" or "bad" anymore, but rather quality.
What makes me feel energized, clear minded and focused?
I also make sure that if I have a week of foods that aren't nutrient dense, I hit the gym hard and focus on getting back to foods that make me feel good!
As much as I enjoy donuts, my body really doesn't!
Again, however you chose to eat is OK! As long as you're mentally sound and feeling good!
Sorry for the long post! 🤓
The biggest tip I can give you is, "when you restrict you binge. So allow yourself what you want, and you'll eventually want/crave it less"
