Healthy Relationships with Food
Using food to reach your goals
Do you break out in a cold sweat at the thought of eating too many carbs? Does the fat content in your delicious Ribeye keep you awake at night?
If this describes you, maybe you have a bad relationship with food.
Food isn’t anything special. It’s a delivery mechanism for nutrients and nourishment for the body. In some cases it’s a delivery mechanism for toxins and contaminants.
Therefore, you should be using your diet to meet your fitness or health goals.
If you have a healthy relationship with food (and healthy body weight) this probably doesn’t make any sense to you. For people who have been burned by the enticing aroma of freshly baked bread, it makes sense.
Having a healthy relationship with food means you aren’t afraid of consuming particular food types, especially macronutrients. One good example of this is the keto diet.
