It's not the foods fault! A guide to a better relationship with food.
Food is necessary to living and is meant to be enjoyed. It is meant to make you feel good and it is meant to taste good. You do not want to go through life not enjoying something that is meant to be enjoyed. It is important to understand that you have the power to choose things you love and not feel guilty about them. It is always about making the right choices. Sometimes we think we want to choose certain things that are bad for us because we love them, but that isn’t all that it is about. You want to choose things that taste good and make you feel good and make you healthy and keep you happy. Short term taste compromising long term health or goals seems to not make sense in the grand scheme of things. Choose things that taste good, make you feel good, and you know make you happy. Save your favorites and make sure that you keep finding more things to add to your grocery list and your arsenal. The better you will feel!
Being prepared takes away the stress, anxiety, and worry. It gives you a sense of control and makes things easier. When we feel in control, we feel relaxed. When we feel relaxed, we feel good about the decisions we are making. Failing to prepare is preparing to fail! When something is important to you, you will find a way! If not you will find an excuse! There are reasons these quotes are quotes. They are not cliches because they are wrong, they are cliches because they are true. When you take the time to prepare, you will always be successful. You are planning ahead and you are planning your future in a positive way which is setting up your intention and expectations to have happy endings.

Preparing your food in advance will not only take away the stress of how much time you have and the pressure of what decision you will make to make, but it will make you feel more relaxed in your choices. Decisions are not always easy to make. As a matter of fact, most people spend so much time deciding just what they want to eat! And after all that time they end up still not being happy! Save yourself the pressure and save yourself the stress. Make great decisions in advance that will help you not only meet your nutritional goals but eliminate any stressors.
It’s important to have a strong understanding of why you are changing your habits. It's important to put to the forefront of your mind so you can stay true in the long run. We recommend writing down all of the reasons why you are doing this. All the reasons why you want to be healthy. All the reasons why you want to change your habits. All the reasons why you want to proceed. All the reasons why you are choosing to put yourself first. Writing these down and having reminders is a great way to make progress that is long-lasting. You want to write down in detail all the reasons why you are doing it as a reference so any day that you feel less than your best, you can go back to that list and get re-inspired.
They say motivation does not last but neither does taking a shower! That is why you do it daily! You have to remind yourself every day of what your purpose is so you can have the purpose-driven behavior that creates real and long-lasting change.
Write it down and put it somewhere you can see it.
Take a screenshot on your phone so in last-minute situations, you can have that same access. Always have what you need around you to make you stay making the right decisions at all times.
