Pictures like this make me so angry.

Moderation is so important in a balanced diet and healthy attitude towards food. You can have a few donuts every now and then and still be healthy, and you certainly don’t need to burn off the calories in them because you’re afraid you have “sabotaged” yourself. That’s not how bodies work.

I was told something similar to this about Easter eggs when I was younger and for the following three years I was too scared to eat my Easter chocolate because I was already self conscious. I thought, well I have to do all this exercise to burn off such a tiny amount, I’m not going to eat any because I don’t want to get fatter. Which I didn’t realise was so wrong. Pictures like this easily misdirected those with lesser knowledge about nutrition, and fuel the insecurities of those with low self esteem.

So eat that donut you crave every now and then. Eat five. And then just relax. Nothing bad will come from it.

burpees dont suck as much as your attitude towards donuts

dontstoptriing: Lies fitblr has told me and how to combat them:

  • Don't keep junk food in the house and you won't be tempted to eat it: Don't keep junk food in the house and you'll end up taking out the entire jar of nut butter with a spatula since it's the only thing around.
  • Binging is because of lack of self-control: Binging is because of unresolved emotional tensions or not allowing yourself to eat what you really want, when you really want it.
  • Have a cheat meal once in a while to cut down cravings: Don't put any foods off limits and they'll stop being so special.
  • Don't add sugar to anything because processed sugar is BAD: If adding a spoonful of sugar to your cocoa powdered oatmeal will satisfy your chocolate craving, don't pretend that unsweetened chocolate will satisfy you.
  • White flour is BAD, whole grains are GOOD: Food is not inherently good or bad. Food is neutral.
  • When you feel a craving coming on, it's because you're lacking x nutrient, so eat this food: When you feel a craving for chocolate coming on, eat half a chocolate bar instead of greek yogurt, a big bowl of fruit, three pieces of ezekiel bread, a cup of nuts, and three chocolate bars anyway.
  • Scrolling through pages of fitness models will motivate you to get in shape: Scrolling through pages of fitness models will cause feelings of inadequacy and self-disrespect.
  • Lack of discipline and self-control are responsible for fitness failures: Depriving yourself of what you really want and getting burned out on exercise are responsible for fitness failures.
  • You can look like this fit person if you stay on track: You will look like what healthy you is supposed to look like when you do exercise that makes you happy and eat foods that make your body AND mind feel good!

Obsessively trying to eat strictly healthy food and micromanaging all your meals is NOT healthy. Being absolutely terrified of certain foods because they are not 100% “clean” is NOT healthy. Feeling bad for enjoying food, regardless of its nutritional value, is NOT HEALTHY.
