Time to have ‘The Talk’ with yourself

Written by Healthy Living

“The fact is, the foods we choose and the way we eat are very much tied to the way we think about our bodies (for instance, ‘My stomach is gross’ or ‘I hate my thighs’) and the way we speak to ourselves (‘I have no self-control’ or ‘I’m such a sloth’), especially when we stray from our good intentions. Same thing goes for the way we understand our food histories (including the ghosts of diets past). Having a healthy relationship with food means being on our own team—for real, though, not just when we’re at our fittest and most together.”
