Challenge good food/bad food thoughts this weekend. All foods are morally equivalent and provide some nutritional value. Shifting this thought process allows us to neutrally assess what foods we truly like and enjoy. You don’t need to eat foods that 1) don’t taste good 2) don’t make you feel good 3) make you feel inferior. What foods are you enjoying this weekend and which foods are you leaving behind?
Something old something new! 😍 Ik had ineens een idee (wanneer niet, in die grote bovenkamer🧠) Dus impulsief zoals ik ben, naja soms kan zijn, gewoon proberen! De keuken was weer een bende. As always, maar wat was dat het waard, ze waren zoo lekker!! 😍 en in 1x gelukt! Soms moet je eens mazzel hebben. Timing!! Try these! Donuts met avocado! 🍩🥑 De combinaties: 1. kaas en spek; 2. kaas, walnoot en dadel; 3. kaas, kalkoenreepjes en ananas; 4. kaas, olijven met bieslook en paprika 5. kaas, seranoham en meloen En een beetje sweet chili 🤤🤤 Welke lijkt jou het lekkerst? #newrecepies#creabea#sweetchili#donuts#hartigedonuts#noukiesfoodtruck#breakfast#dinner#snack#lunch#wheneveryouwant#howmanyouwant#foodfreedom
"Whenever I try intuitive eating, I always end up binging" 😢 . ⬆️ Sounds familiar? ⬆️ . Here's the deal 👀 ❗A lot of people who decide to try intuitive eating come from a place of binge/emotional eating, overeating and restriction. ❗A lot of people come from place when they failed over and over again in the past! ❗These people come from place of not trusting themselves!! - Their hunger cues, their mindset and their body! (Well at least that's how it felt for me) 🤦 . ✨Intuitive eating isn't going to work, until you re-build a trust to yourself and food again!✨ . 💛Have you watched my YouTube video, how I did it? 💛 . Link to my YouTube channel is in bio or leave a comment and I'll send you a DM with a link 👇❤️
DOES WEIGHT LOSS REALLY EQUATE TO HAPPINESS? Sometimes we do not even know it but it is not always the weight loss itself that we find happiness in, we feel we will be more happy when we lose weight, which is why so many of us strive to lose weight and have a smaller body. Lets have a think for a second. Have you ever questioned yourself, is it actually the weight loss itself that makes you happy or is it the reaction from others that make you happy? The comments, the compliments. Now as you may already know, I think it is so dangerous to compliment people on weight loss, this also goes for weight gain, which is why I strongly believe we shouldn't be commenting or complimenting people on their body size, because quite frankly, it doesn't matter, there is no right or wrong body, it is just society's perception that weight loss is ususlly a great thing hence the compliments if you lose weight. So ask yourself, are you trying to lose weight for happiness? Sure it may make you happy, however happiness should not come from the way you look or being in a smaller body. Happiness should come from our other aspects of life, which in turn should not make us want to turn to weight loss for happiness. There could be something underlying which is making you unhappy, something else in your life, but we make a connection with our body and happiness, we feel that a smaller body = happiness. It is the meaning we give it. We have made that connection, when really it doesn't solve any of the issues or underlying problems that may be present. Take a look at what other factors are going on in your life, or may be it is something you have experienced that has made you unhappy, because turning to your body is not the solution. I did exactly that, and has it made me any happier? No. Whatever emotions I have been feeling, whatever issues I may have, they are still there and won't go away unless they are addressed. The way you look does not define you and certainly should not determine
→ 🌼 ! TW ! 🌼 . My head is screaming. I gained again which is great but Ana tells me to restrict now. Because when I'll gain more I'll maybe not fit into my prom dress I already bought and my prom is at the end of June. Now I am confused because I really could gain enough to not fit anymore in my dress.. but I don't want to let this sickness win. I also think of maintaining right now and then start gaining again at the end of June? And I am not kidding, my dress is already a lot tighter than when I bought it but we already paid it and can't bring it back so I NEED to fit in it??? . Sorry for the negativity I really want to gain but I am also scared to not fit into my dress. I hate myself for not gaining enough before buying my prom dress. If I had done this I wouldn't struggle now.

Don't let the weekend ruin your amazing work this week. ❎ . The weekend can present a whole new challenge when it comes to our weight loss goals. Our routine changes, there are Friday night drinks 🍻 , parties 🎉 , brunches 🍳, dinners 🌮 and plenty of other social events. The good work we have put in with our nutrition can go up in flames real quick as we over-consume more calories than we can possibly count. . One thing some of my awesome clients do to navigate this (especially @chantelm_scott who is a master of this) is saving up calories through the week, so they can head out on the weekend and enjoy themselves, have a drink or two, eat brunch or dinner with friends and enjoy the food they love, absolutely guilt free and free from any restriction.✅✅✅ . Think of your calories as a budget. 💰 . If you have 24,000 calories to spend each week (2,000 calories a day) you may decide to not spend us much on some days through the week and save some calories up so you can spend bigger on the weekends (eat more) and still hit your budget (calorie) target for the week. 👍 . Focus on looking at the big picture for the week and budget accordingly and just like that you keep moving forward to your goals, while also enjoying your weekend and eating some seriously delicious food. Win, win, win! . Our total amount of weekly calories is far more important than the calorie on one single day. So if you learn to play the numbers game correctly you will have some very big wins.✅ .

Deze kocht ik nooit. Want het hele pak moest in 1 keer op. Dit exemplaar ligt inmiddels al weken onaangebroken in mijn kast. Ik bedacht me net dat ze er lagen. En meteen ging de hersenkronkel ik-heb-ze-dus-ze-moeten-op aan. Maar gelijk bedacht ik dat ik er helemaal geen trek in heb nu. Ik wacht tot de vers-fruit meneer komt (en die komt elke dag hier op kantoor, echt heerlijk) want ik heb trek in een appel. Waarom zou ik dan nu dit gaan eten om maar gewoon te gaan eten, alleen omdat die de vers-fruit meneer een beetje laat is vandaag. Ik wacht nog even, die appel komt zo. En als het echt te lang duurt breek ik lekker dit pak aan. Het is zo fijn dat ik zo neutraal tegen eten aan kijk nu. Dat ik niet meer een pak koeken leeg hoef te eten, maar gewoon echt trek kan hebben in een appel. Zonder dieet. Zonder bezig te zijn met de omvang van mijn lichaam. Gewoon omdat ik er trek in heb. Helemaal vanzelf. Ik ben helemaal in aw over mijn lichaam. Het is zo intelligent. Het weet zo goed wat het nodig heeft. En het wordt steeds makkelijker om daar naar te luisteren. Overigens is trek in deze Sultana ook helemaal prima! En ook dan hoeft het hele pak niet meer meteen op. Zo bevrijdend om te kunnen stoppen met eten als ik genoeg heb. Alles mag weer. Niks moet meer. Yesssss!!

♥ VOL OF VOLDAAN♥ Ken je dat? Je hebt zin in een koekje, maar dat mag niet. Dus je neemt een stuk fruit. Er blijft iets knagen, dus je neemt ook een hand nootjes. En dan ook nog maar een broodje. En weet je wat? Doe dan ook dat koekje maar...Om vervolgens overvol en met een rotgevoel te zweren dat je morgen “braaf” opnieuw begint. ♥ We weten het allang: als je iets “niet mag”, dan wil je het juist. Als jij jezelf fysiek of emotioneel van alles ontzegt, dan worden die dingen opeens heel aanlokkelijk. Zelfs als je ze normaal niet eens zou willen. ♥ Je kunt eindeloos op blaadjes sla knabbelen totdat je maag gevuld is, maar als je eigenlijk iets anders wilde (of nodig had), dan blijf je honger houden en verlangen naar meer. Er komt dan een moment dat je ‘op’ bent, of dat je doorslaat. En dat keer op keer. ♥ Haal je alle regeltjes weg, dan krijg je de kans om echt te gaan voelen waar je behoefte aan hebt en daarnaar te gaan handelen. ♥ Als je nu denkt “Ja maar, ik wil nu eenmaal altijd koekjes en chocola”, dan is het misschien interessant om je af te vragen waarom je dat altijd wilt. Is het echt een behoefte van je lijf? Vervul je er een (emotionele) behoefte mee? Of misschien is het alleen omdat het nog als een “verboden vrucht” ziet. De vraag is: durf je dat te gaan onderzoeken? ♥ Als je jezelf onbeperkt toestemming geeft om te eten, dan gaat na verloop van tijd de druk van de ketel. Je kunt gaan ervaren wanneer je honger hebt, wanneer je verzadigd bent, waar je behoefte aan hebt, wat je echt wilt... Soms is dat broccoli, soms is dat taart. Prima! ♥ Vanuit liefde voor jezelf, naar vervulling in plaats van vulling. ♥ En weet je? Dit geldt niet alleen voor eten. Altijd moe, druk, onvoldaan? Dan is het misschien eens tijd om te onderzoeken hoe jij je leven vormgeeft. Bestaat jouw agenda vooral uit alles wat moet of kan (en van wie?) Vooral vulling, in plaats van vervulling? Of doe je wat jij echt wilt, en waar jij behoefte aan
Another 0.8 lbs down! I AM SO HAPPY. I’ve seen so many people struggling this week. I know it’s hard and it’s slow but it really does work. It has been so tough for me but I know that I’m doing the right thing. I know if I go on a diet I’ll lose weight but I’ll be so restricted. My mental health will go and I’ll end up gaining and binging when I give up. I’ve had 10+ years of diet hell and I’m never going back to any of that!
SOCIAL MEDIA USE & BODY IMAGE 👙 . Is all social media use created equal when it comes to body image❓Not exactly‼️ . Research has shown that it’s appearance-focused social media use (SMU), rather than overall SMU that’s related to body image concerns.🤸🏼♀️ . In a study of 259 women (18-29 yrs) looking at appearance-focused accounts on instagram & facebook were associated with poor body image outcomes. In contrast following appearance neutral accounts like nature, travel or pets were not.🌵 . In particular following celebrity & “health & fitness” accounts on Instagram was significantly positively correlated with thin ideal internalisation, drive for thinness and body surveillance.🔹 . Whereas on facebook, engagement with photos / “Facebook stalking” was positively correlated to negative body image outcomes whereas chatting / news was not.🔹 . Moreover, Instagram users (defined as using the platform 1-2 times / day) compared to non users also had higher levels of body surveillance, habitual monitoring of the body’s appearance. Suggesting that the visual aspect of Instagram may make it more harmful that other social media platforms.⚠️ . So what does this mean❓ . 1️⃣I think it highlights more than ever the need to diversify our feeds to include both body diversity & plenty of other types of content like interiors or illustrations. 2️⃣A really important self care practice can be going through your instagram feed & deleting accounts that don’t make you feel good about yourself. 3️⃣Remember that a huge amount of air brushing & editing goes on & comparing ourselves to an unrealistic ideal can be harmful for our own wellbeing. 4️⃣I’d also like to post the challenge of some instagram free days per week, I definitely think this is something I would like to implement myself.👍🏼 .

Hello! So I wanted to make an update. Today was my day 13 of my @whole30 , however I CHOSE to break it because of a celebration! The amazing thing that #whole30 has taught me is the idea of #foodfreedom I got my first job as a graduate even though I graduated almost 3 weeks ago! That is something to celebrate with my family because I have had nothing but bouts of depression and severe anxiety about my future over these past 3 weeks. However, I gave that over to God and He opened doors. The point of this post is that I wanted to share this with you because I didn't want to lie and pretend that I didn't choose to stop my whole30 and say I did 30 days. Instead, I wanted to share a VERY important lesson I learned from @melissa_hartwig 's book about food freedom. I am an adult and I have the choice to choose whether or not certain food choices are worth it. Yes, these 13 days were difficult, but I know I can do it again and even planned on continuing it past the Whole30. So, I am PROUD that I completed 13 days, not punishing myself for CHOOSING to stop. I am not a failure, but an achiever and I plan to start again. This celebration was worth the one day I got to eat sushi (my top 3 favorite foods) and celebrate and have amazing conversations with my husband and his parents. So, STOP calling it a cheat day, STOP putting a negative perspective on your choices of food. If you've been working really hard, and want to make the choice, just ask yourself, is all this work you put in worth that junk food? If you say yes, say it without any negative or punishing feeling about it. Give yourself control over your choices. Also, I hope to start my whole30 again this Sunday or Monday as a fresh start! So here's to new beginnings and achievements! 🥳 . . . . #god#christian#whole30life#whole30results#weight#weightlossinspiration#weightlossjourney#weightlosstransformation#weightloss#weightlossgoals#weightlossmotivation#fitnesstransformation#fitspo#fit#fitbit

In and out with food items you needed and wanted without examining informative labels on every product you consider yourself to buy. . . This is one of my favourite parts of #recovery on practice level. It gives you so much #headspace to be able to just go to a shop, pick items that seem interesting to you, go to cash register, pay and leave (and start to eat an spontaneous ice cream/[whatever] you bought just because you wanted to have it right away). That's it. . . I spend hours on my grocery shopping when I was deep in my #eatingdisorder . Those trips included walking to a shop that was far away from my home but also going through all grocery stores which were nearby. It felt like I got pleasure from examining food products and nutrition labels, but freaked out if some specific products were sold out. Once there was a time when my Ed made me believe that nutrition contents can change during a night on products that I had taken to be my "safe foods", and I needed to check them many times before I could eat them...oh lord. Well just to be safe and clear: THEY DON'T CHANGE. #nutrition content of your apples and yoghurts (and everything elses) stays the same. There's no hazard wizard playing there with those. . . Nowadays there's only food in my fridge. No "safe" or "special" foods. #food is food. It's actually just that easy. I go to grocery store, buy what I need/want, and if I check out the nutrition label I have un-edmind/un-dietmentality kind of interest to know what that new product has in it, but I DON'T CARE ABOUT THE CALORIES or others in a way that would prevent me from buying that product. 🔥Leaving #dietculture behind and holding on to your recovery will bring you this kind of #freedom, and I assure you, it's worth of a fight. . . Is grocery shopping hard for you? 🍇🍝 . .
DAY 5: THE FOOD MEDIC Finishing off my cookbook challenge with this brilliant book by @thefoodmedic which is full of healthy, affordable recipes that were a saviour as a student. Like many of the books included in this weekly challenge; Hazel breaks through the fads and explains (in an approachable, easy-to-understand manner) the importance of balance. There are delicious recipes suitable for all diets across breakfast (the sweet potato and chorizo hash is a weekend winner, whilst the chopped egg and avo on rye toast is perfect for weekdays), smoothies (these were life-savers when I had early morning lectures - my favourite is the blueberry muffin), lunch (her smoky beans are so tasty!!), dinner (I love her ‘Mum’s curry) not forget the sweet treats and snacks (including a zesty orange and chocolate brownie). Alongside all these moorish meals is a informative guide to a ‘Pick n Mix HIIT’ workout’ - designed to inspire, rather than intimidate, readers about enjoying exercise. Reading this book is like talking directly to Hazel, her words really resonate and you feel she wants to help. I would definitely recommend signing up to her Food Medic newsletter - which is full of wonderful weekly information on all things health and wellness - subscribing to her Food Medic podcast (definitely check out the previous series) and checking out her website (a treasure trove of recipes, products and no-nonsense advice. Also, her social media page has some fantastic lunchbox inspiration to help you make your own nutritious boxes on the go, I would also recommend her latest book ‘The Food Medic for Life: Easy recipes to help you live well every day’ which contains even more brilliant information and ideas.

Gracefull is a place that lived in my dreams for years before I moved many miles from the only state I’d ever lived. When I discovered it’s reality, I took it as a sign that the sweet little town I now call home could be a place where I belong. At Gracefull Community Cafe, everybody eats, regardless of ability to pay. I have eaten delicious food with people I’d not met who told me stories I’d not heard...until a meal and a bunch of beautiful hearts set the table. Friends, there is MAGIC in a shared meal if we can look for it. It’s places like this one that gently push me to keep searching out wholeness and freedom to live as I was created to live. There is no place for unwarranted anxiety over food here. There is no one who doesn’t belong. So, today, we celebrate. Happy 3rd Birthday, @heathergracefull . You make us all better. To many more. 😚🎉 #gracefullcafe#littletoncolorado
Today I'm giving myself the gift of rest Resting from activities, listening to what my body has asked for all week. It let me know by being irritable and sleeping super late for me, and unmotivated to workout I'm taking rest from food rules and expectations, and enjoying my favourite things. I've made fries, salmon and asparagus for lunch, and later on we'll have tacos 🌮 And while I am working on things for my patients and things that make me happy, I'm doing it all at a really gentle pace and without a schedule Taking time to indulge in the slow, the space and the slow peace of life is my absolute favourite thing, and is entirely required for all humans. What resets you? When will you find time and space for yourself this week?
👩🌾Goodnight sleep tight sweet blueberries🌱💤 Dream of summer with a nice big bowl of the yummiest blueberries 😋🙌 💡Reminder that we are only open tomorrow from 10 AM - 3 PM and CLOSED until we reopen on June 1st for #icecream 🍦 #klaassenfarms#locallygrown
Ask yourself, if my: 1. Diet, “lifestyle”, way of eating 2. Fitness routine 3. Weight loss, or efforts to change my body Were suddenly gone, how would I define myself? Diet culture robs us from the opportunity to build a relationship with other parts of ourselves. It makes us sell ourselves short so that we become dependent on it to define who we are. Letting go of the “Keto” label after 3 years was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, because I no longer knew who I was outside of that diet and that label. But once I let go, I created space to get to know parts of myself that I ignored for so long. Take some time to explore who you are outside of your efforts to modify your body or control your food. What fills you up? What brings you joy? What could you create more space for in your life if you could give a little less space to diet culture?
#repost @kristinabruce_coach (@get_repost) ・・・ It’s entirely possible that when someone starts exercising, they’ll lose weight. It’s also possible that they won’t. It’s even possible they may gain weight. . Moving the body (to the extent that we are able to) is great. There is evidence showing that people’s health improves when regular movement is incorporated into their lives - REGARDLESS of weight loss. . So when we exercise ONLY with the hopes of losing weight (or with it being the main intent), a few things can happen: . 1️⃣ We don’t listen to our body. We end up doing more movement, in a more intense way that isn’t good for us - leading to possible injury or sickness. . 2️⃣ We can see exercise as a “should do” or “must do” and it becomes a punishment vs. a joyful experience. So we end up adding more stress to our lives. . 3️⃣ We may engage in types of movements that don’t really benefits us, or avoid those that might. (Like avoiding lifting weight or fearing weight gain). . 4️⃣ We lose connection to what movement brings us JOY. What actually feels good in the heart (and body). . 5️⃣ We avoid movement altogether because it’s become such a negative experience. . There truly is no “better” or “best” movement - only the moment that feels best for your body and life, right now. Disconnecting from the desire to lose weight is the key to discovering what that is for you. . If you want to re-connect with your body and have a more joyful experience of movement, I have two resources that can help: . 📙 My Body Acceptance Jump Start Guide, which you can download for free on my website (click link in my bio). . 👩🦰 Six-weeks of one-on-one coaching, where together we will begin to dismantle the beliefs and old ways of relating to your body, so you can feel freer and happier in the body that you have.
