Me and Food – the Honest Truth

There are all kinds of ideas about how to stop eating compulsively, how to recover from an eating disorder, how to be free of the food and weight obsession.

I have found that I just need to know my own truth about me and food, whatever that may be.

So,if I know that when I eat sugar, I can’t stop and most usually binge, then I need to honor that and not eat sugar. If eating frequently keeps food on my mind too much, then I need to eat fewer times per day.

Conversely, if I can take or leave sugar, then I don’t need to cut it out. If eating frequently works best for me, then I should do that. What works for me may or may not work for you, but I find that when pressed, most of already know the truth. If I start eating white bread, my mind and body will scream for MORE. Therefore, you won’t find me eating white bread. Ever. Why would I? I know the truth.

The important part is knowing my body and my mind and how they react. To be 100% completely honest with myself.

And then to move on with the rest of my life.

  1. Glad you explained it this way because honestly it can still come across that you’re quite restrictive/avoidant of food. But now this makes more sense. I think there’s sometimes a fine line there.

  2. That’s interesting. I don’t feel restrictive at all with food. I feel free of it. I eat when I’m hungry and stop when I’m full. I think of food as fuel and go out and live life. I do eat everything, including dessert if I feel like it. I do stay away from white flour, because i get that feeling of wanting more. However, if i were at my boyfriend’s mothers house and she’d baked and served white bread – I would eat it. I appreciate your perspective. I’ll have to think about it.
