Restricting yourself leads to rebellion in the form of emotional eating or binging.
Have you been on a diet where you…
Cut out carbs or sweets?
Limited the hours you were allowed to eat?
Limited calories to under 1,400?
Restricted yourself to certain food groups?
If so, then what happened?
You rebelled after some time.
And then you went through this vicious emotional eating cycle.
The vicious cycle of emotional eating:
I feel guilty and critical of my body
I turn to food to cope with my emotions.
I get upset. "I shouldn't have eaten that."
I get mad at myself for not having more self-control"
Repeat step #1.
It’s not your fault, its diet culture’s fault.
Diet culture is holding you to unrealistic expectations and stopping you from truly being in tune with yourself.
Stop dieting, start listening to your body.
