HEALTHY SWEET SNACK IDEAS FOR WEIGHT LOSS
Do you have a healthy relationship with food? Although this may sound like an odd question, don’t worry—your dinner is not about to break up with you! Many people struggle when it comes to finding balance within their diet and maintaining a positive lifestyle and eating habits.
Adopting quick fixes and ditching ‘diet-busting’ foods such as your favourite takeaway and chocolate bar may provide short-term changes but these changes, more often than not, only tend to develop unsustainable habits and results.
WHAT ARE THE SIGNS OF AN UNHEALTHY FOOD RELATIONSHIP?
If you’re constantly feeling guilty when you’re eating certain foods, secretly bingeing on your favourite treats or regularly switching between dieting trends, you more than likely don’t have a healthy relationship with food.
A good relationship with food is like any other relationship—it takes time, practice and a lot of persistence. Having a healthy approach to eating not only sets you up for a broader range of psychical and mental health benefits but also strengthens eating habits and consequently makes losing weight more manageable.
HOW CAN I IMPROVE MY RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD?
Having a good relationship with food isn’t something you can achieve overnight. Rather, it’s something that you’ll most likely work on for the rest of your life—much like you would with a significant person or pet in your life. The goal of a good relationship with food is for there to be more positive experiences over negative ones (that’s right Happy Way fam, no more feeling shame after eating that Mars Bar).
One easy way to adopt a healthy relationship with food is to get creative with your food choices and build recipes that complement your body goals and boost your overall health.
