Your relationship with food

Do you have a bad relationship with food?

The idea that some foods are good and some foods are bad is ridiculous

If you treat yourself to a battered mars bar once a month, this is not going to have an effect on your weight management goals

That isn’t to say it is good for you, it’s just that the suggestion this is going to affect your goals is silly


To maintain weight, your average woman who is active and exercises very little can eat around the 2000 calories a day

Based on this, over 30 days the total calories she can consume without gaining or losing weight would be 60,000 calories

That treat we discussed is likely to come in the area of 600 cals. So if she has this once a month, this would actually only be 100th of her calorie intake

HOWEVER, let’s say she has this 2 times a week

8% of the total calories for the month are now coming from this area, that’s a lot of saturated fat, and sugar


Is the Mars bar itself bad?

We know consuming this treat once a month will not have an effect on your results


It’s not the food’s fault for being ‘bad’- it’s OUR fault for consuming it too regularly.

This is very important, and here’s why…

When you refer to a treat as ‘bad’ for you, you have a NEGATIVE relationship with that food

Then, every time you eat it, you will feel bad, maybe get upset and begin on a negative downward spiral

What can we learn from this?

Stop telling yourself not to eat bad food, because when you tell yourself you can’t have it

This habit of calling food ‘good for you’ or ‘bad for you’ creates a negative relationship with food

You can treat yourself to almost anything if you eat it in the correct amount, and still achieve great goals

IF, it fits with your calorie, protein, fat, carb, and micronutrients.

We arent saying treat yourself to 4 bottles of wine, we are just saying starving yourselves of these odd treats can increase the risk of you overconsuming these foods

Hope this helps anyone out there understand their relationship with food in a little more detail ?
