There’s a basic thought you may not have questioned for many years: someone needs to tell me what to eat, and when.
This arises out of deep self-doubt about what, when, and how we’re eating.
I had this thought regularly when I binge-ate and when I starved and categorized foods into “good” or “bad” foods.
But it was a stressful thought. It kept things on edge. Never trusting what I chose or trusting I was able to stop when full, eat when hungry.
Trouble is, when I felt doubt about knowing how to eat, I dismissed my own sense of hunger or fullness. I completely ignored by own body sensors, my own feeling about what and when to eat.
Who would you be without this very stressful story that you don’t know when or how to eat?
I found, far more confident.
Able to be anywhere, with anyone, at any level of hunger, without getting scared or judging myself.
Without this belief that you don’t know how to do it right, you can become your own very kind caretaker, and very wise caretaker.
Much love, Grace
