There's nothing wrong with indulging in a treat every so often. Yes food is a source of nutrition. What we put in is what makes us. Too much of anything can be a bad thing. But viewing food as the enemy reveals a more sinister issue: an unhealthy relationship with food, enjoyment and how one views themself. I ordered a minty ginger ice tea. But this slice of dark chocolate mixed nut cake kept staring at me.
And so I ordered it. And enjoyed it. Every single bite. Savouring each mouthful slowly over the ensuing 60mins.
A dear lady standing nearby muttered she's putting on weight just looking at it... how could someone eat it?
Well if you walk everyday ~12-14 000 steps per day, use a stand up desk for 50% of the day, walk to work / home / even grocery shopping 1km and carry all your groceries home (weights and cardio!), eat til youre 70% full, work out 2 x 1hr really hardcore sessions (I do it with an EP) and do a daily exercise home program everyday as well (30-40mins), sleep about 7-8 hrs every night, eat pretty much 65% plant, 15% dairy and 15% animal protein, the remaining 5% is for a piece of dark chocolate licorice or a long black or a chai tea or a small cup of homemade jelly and fresh fruit...or a piece of cake when you go out is pretty enjoyable. A slice of chocolate cake maybe 3 times a year or a scoop of icecream on the weekend is a decadent treat for the emotions as well.
Sure I don't have a six pack washboard core. But my biological age is 15 years younger than my actual age... and that is pretty cool!
Food is not the enemy in the right amounts at the right times. Unless... I can't control myself around it. But then the real issue is with me and not the actual food that I need to deal with.
