Food rules impact your well-being

Food rules impact your well-being

There's a vital difference between food rules and healthy eating habits:

  • Food rules are rigid: you have strict parameters around how you should eat and feel guilty or worried when you don't eat according to that plan.
  • Healthy eating habits are flexible: you prioritise nutritious ingredients but don’t agonise over what to eat.

Following food rules can be physically, mentally, and socially exhausting, impacting your overall quality of life.

There are no bad foods

If we think of food in terms of good and bad, and that eating is a bad behaviour, it is easy to believe you are a bad person for eating. Then food becomes a source of stress and shame instead of nourishment and pleasure.

Rather than feeling you're a terrible person without self-control because you ate some ice cream, acknowledge that you just ate something delicious because you wanted it. Thinking this way makes it easier to let go and move on.

Don't demonize macronutrients

Don't demonize macronutrients

There’s no evidence that a low-carb diet is any healthier than one that includes a balance of all macronutrients. The same for low-fat diets.

A 2020 review of 121 previous trials found that none of the diets limiting certain macronutrients is more effective at improving health than a regular, varied diet.

You don't need to burn anything off

We eat food for more than just to gain energy. We connect with our culture through food, we connect with others over a meal, and we eat for pleasure and nostalgia.

Trying to compensate with exercise when you feel you’ve eaten too much can have a significant negative impact on your quality of life. It could also set in a cycle of overeating, compensating, and overeating again.

Instead, just let your body do its thing. Most importantly, don't be rigid or punish yourself for eating too much.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
