Good/Bad Foods Don’t Exist
The notion that some foods are inherently bad (or good) is one of the dumbest things the internet tries to sell you every single day.
Are some foods better than others?
Will eating a lot of Twinkies get you closer to those washboard abs you’ve been working for?
The point is to show you that no food can possibly be “bad” on its own.
If you want some ice cream, eat some ice cream.
You wont die, promise.
Making solid food choices 100% of the time is tough, but it gets even tougher when you throw in self guilt for eating something that you’ve seen characterized as bad.
Let’s reframe how you think about food.
Picture foods without labeling them as “good” or “bad” in your head.
Instead, before you eat any food think about whether that food will take you closer or further away from your goals.
I’ll let you in on a secret: It’s OKAY to choose a food every once in a while thats wont take you closer to your goals.
Now, if you start making those decisions frequently you’ll know exactly why you didn’t make any progress since the last time you measured.
Life is too short to cut (x) food out because someone hiding behind a keyboard read a study performed with 3 males (who were also dogs) and two female cats that showed eating bananas are bad for you.
Have you ever seen a heavy person who got that way by solely eating too many bananas and veggies? Me either.
Save this post for when you feel yourself slipping back into the old habit of labeling foods as “good” or “bad”. ❤️
