In this episode I talk about labeling your food and why it can set you up to fail. I recently saw a post Chalene Johnson, fitness legend, posted on her Instagram on food labels. There were 2 plates of the same exact food and one was labeled "paleo" and the other plate with the same food was labeled "and also food".
I thought that it was pretty powerful because when we start to label what we are doing we instantly think of the foods we CAN'T have. What happens when we tell ourselves we can't have something ? Well, we want it even more, or in my case I definitely did.
Sometimes I look back and cant believe I recommended certain things or use to tell people to stop eating carbs at dinner, or fruit will keep your body from being lean etc. But when we know better we do better and sometimes we have to just go through those times, experience it and grow from it.
I feel like a lot of my listeners are to that point where they just want to live this food freedom life and not let it consume you but also have body goals, which is great.
SOME ACTIONABLE STEPS THAT I WANT YOU TO DO FOR THE REST OF MAY
For me : Eggs, avocado, rice, strawberries, banana, peanut butter, popcorn, dark chocolate , chicken, bagged salad, couple bites of mac and cheese , shakes ( 85% of the time)
These are the things I did when I stopped labeling everything and just stuck to the things I enjoyed. You can too:)
