This last week while travelling, I’ve had to reflect a lot on my fears, urges, and thoughts related to my body, food and life.
It’s interesting how feeing like I don’t have full control over food choices (ingredients, cooking options and favourite food brands) can make my brain feel like a failure as I feel like I’m not “eating right”. This has led me to recognize a lot of fear and avoidance to read/listen to posts as I am so someone who compares myself to others.
With that said, that is why I’ve tried to take a step back and simply make food choices based on what is available to me at the moment and try to not beat myself up with negative thoughts.
How can I work through this fear of not having control with food?
