Yes, you can beat 'good' and 'bad' food thoughts.

There are a few points that we all need to remember about beating good and bad food thoughts!

You need to tell yourself the truth. Food is FUEL. It is ENERGY. That's why calories are known as the energy information. It is energy to live. Food contains nutrients and vitamins that keep your body alive. 

Bread is a fear food for many who are recovering or dealing with an eating disorder, but guess what? Bread actually has important and crucial carbs and B-vitamins to feed your brain, bones and muscles! Another fact, ice cream has essential fatty acids for healthy hormones and healthy hair, skin, and nails, as well as calcium for your bones! How amazing is that??

Food is meant to be enjoyed! Eating comfort foods are fine. Like some foods contain more nutritional value than others, and other foods contain emotional comfort, pleasure, and social experiences. These experiences are wonderful for your mental, emotional, and social health.

Your body is structured to enjoy and feel pleasure from food! If humans didn’t enjoy food, we wouldn’t be alive! When we’re hungry, our brain is designed to go out and seek food and feel pleasure when we eat to keep us alive.
