#nedaweekis so important and something I feel everyone should pay attention to more. Eating disorders are far too common these days, caused as easy as someone making the wrong comment or pushing a diet too much on someone. The obsessiveness with what goes into our body can get BAD. That photo was me a few years ago when I measured everything to the gram that went into my body. Yes, including friken spinach. I knew what to eat, when to eat, how little to eat, how to trick loved ones and all it got me was a body that looked frail, tired, and malnourished. Sometimes when I catch myself commenting on someone eating something with added sugar or the wrong oil, I try and tell myself NO and to let them be. We don't need more food polices, critiquing or telling people what to and not to eat. And if I've ever said anything to you, I'm genuinely SORRY. Being a positive role model isn't someone who gives people all the damn lists of facts of how terrible that is and why it's hurting their body. It's maybe informing them on what you know or are learning, the effects it has on the brain, but also the importance of balance, food freedom, and mental peace with food. It does more harm stressing out about a cookie you ate for days then it does to actually eat the friken cookie. Sugar is bed, YES, you, me, your friends and everyone else knows that. So stop belittling people for what they eat. People have to want health on their own. Healthy doesn't mean you cannot consume something processed ever again. So many health Instagrams continuously harp on how terrible any added sugar is or canola oil or this or that, and as that is true, it's just more obsessiveness for many people who suffer from LIFE threatening situations. It's one thing to inform people, but it's another to make people feel bad for eating their favorite dish because the last ingredient is agave. Let's spread happiness, nourishment, real food, balance, fun, memories, more so then bashing food groups, grains, gluten, soy, dairy, wheat, etc. I've been eating gluten and dairy for 3 weeks since seeing a nutritionist and I am ALIVE and healthy. Imagine that? Encourage, stop dieting, and love your friken self!
