So what is a healthy relationship with food?

Many of us struggle with the relationship we have with the food we eat. We are constantly exposed to messages from the media that some foods are bad for us and some foods are good for us. We hear messages like, carbohydrates will make you fat, sugar is the new cocaine, and coconut oil is a super food. These media messages are often very black and white, can often be conflicting and may leave some of us developing a distorted relationship with food. It can lead to a world full of food rules, anxiety, guilt, shame, and fear around food. The good news is that if you feel like you are living in place which revolves around food rules and a constant fear of food, developing a healthy relationship with food is possible. A healthy relationship includes intuitive eating, mindfulness, choosing personal preferences over food rules, and practising balance and flexibility in your eating. These principles empower us to feel more at peace with the food we eat and to look at food as a source of enjoyment; Because food is much more that a set of calories or macro- and micro-nutrients. It is also about enjoyment, celebration, being social with family and friends.  At Toss the Scales were committed to helping you on this journey of developing a healthy relationship with food. To empower you to stop living by a set of food rules and to move to a much happier mindset, full of self-care, compassion and above all, to the enjoyment and celebration of food!
