I don’t have a healthy relationship with food.
I’ll save that constantly evolving, ever-changing story for another day. It’s a long one that will take a lot of time to tell.
I’ve been working on forming a healthier relationship with food for years.
I often remind myself that food is fuel. I need fuel to perform at my best physically and mentally while training and working.
What we put in our bodies, we get out. Not all foods are created equal.
I’m not a dietitian or nutritionist, but I do know that we don’t need to eat a perfect diet. That’s nearly impossible and isn’t realistic.
What we can do is eat a better diet. We can eat more nutritious foods and less junk. We can make substitutes and upgrades.
Start small and slow. Make one better choice at a time. Make incremental changes over time. Minor changes can have a major impact.
