Here’s a good reminder that it’s ok to make food choices what aren’t objectively the “healthiest.” When you do that your cravings will eventually subside and you’ll get back in balance.
This article offers insights from multiple dietitians on intuitive eating. One particularly powerful insight is that at some point you’ll begin to crave the more objectively healthy foods and you don’t have to feel guilty about eating those either!
Contrary to popular belief, when you give yourself permission to eat a food whenever you want, the “off-limits” foods become even less interesting. In studies, people who implement intuitive eating feel less anxious about food, and have lower levels of disordered eating and body image concerns.
