Do you find yourself craving and over desiring pizza, pasta and even rice?
Every diet I hear about these day talks about limiting carbs and how this is essential to being healthy. This misinformation makes it hard to feel like a healthy person when I eat my rice and pasta.
I am a very athletic person, and I need carbohydrates to fuel my favorite activities. But because I hear so much anti-carb talk, I want to add my perspective.
The thoughts you have about food determine how much you obsess or stress about food. I support the people around me in however they choose to eat, but I like to be very intentional about how and why I eat as well as the thoughts I have about different foods.
I love carbs. They fuel me, they help my brain function well, they help my fluid balance and they satisfy me. When I don’t eat enough of them, my body wants them. So I’m going to keep eating my banana, rice and pasta.
I encourage you to evaluate if the thoughts you have about carbs are helping or hurting you.
Finding balance between health and not overeating due to binges is completely possible, and it all starts with your thoughts.
