Eat like you care about yourself.

You are worth it.  Food can be the cure most of what is wrong with you, but if you eat in excess, it can be the cause of a lot of your future diseases.  I know because I’ve been on both sides of the diagnostic equation.  Do not let food be the enemy.  If you shame or treat food as if it is evil, you will increase your odds of going on a binge and nothing can be worse for your health than strapping on the feed bag full of junk food.  The key to success is learning to eat healthy and remaining consistent in your dietary habits and exercise.  Each day that I stuck to my diet resulted in me feeling healthier and happier me.  I am certain that you will feel similar effects and your mood will improve.  Enough with the pretext, I hope these words encourage you to eat like you love yourself. 

Eating to improve your comfort is a huge mistake, but if you know the calorie content of your foods and you control your portions, you can better fulfill your calorie needs without splurging.  When we’re stressed we crave comfort foods because they act like serotonin and make us feel good – comforted.  Your body needs calories to survive and function correctly.   Eating properly will improve both energy and performance.

The bottom line: Take care of yourself because the more you can take of you, the better you will be able to take care of others.  If you make healthier habits now, you can stay out of the doctor’s office later and feel better about yourself.  Love yourself and eat like you have a future.
