If you haven’t already noticed, there is a bit of a theme this week on my Youtube channel. All the videos I have posted this week are related to improving your ability to be an intuitive eater as well as to improve your confidence around food.
Losing your body expectations is so important in Eating Disorder recovery and freeing yourself of expectations allows space to truly listen to your body. Our mind’s get in the way of what our body is trying to tell us it needs and wants. When we free ourselves of body expectations, we are more able to listen to our bodies which then contributes to improved food confidence – win, win and WIN! Am I right?
Food confidence, what’s that you ask? Food confidence is literally as it sounds, having confidence around food. (INSERT VIDEO – food confidence). Having food confidence means that food does not cause you anxiety or guilt. You can walk into a room that’s filled with food and not go insane with thoughts and fear. Sounds nice, huh?
