“But what about my health?!!!” is a frequent objection I hear when I talk to my clients about how to heel their relationship with food and their bodies.
….“If I eat what I want I’ll get fat/ stay fat”
….“If I eat what I want I’ll get high cholesterol and get sick”
….“But that food isn’t good for my blood pressure/ heart rate”
….“That food is bad for me…I can’t eat that!!”
And while I have MANY ways – including scientific ways- to object each of these statements, quite simply:
Fearing food in the long whether in your opinion it’s ‘healthy’ or ‘not’, is still not likely to promote any long term positive outcome…even if it’s your goal to lose weight.
