Food: Fuel, Friend or Foe?
How you perceive and use food can make a profound difference in your ability to create and maintain healthy eating habits that work for you. If food is your fuel, then certain choices and patterns work better than others. If food is your friend, you may be vulnerable to using food for emotional support or for “recreational eating”, which can pose a challenge for weight control and health. If food is your foe, you may be so tied up in a view of what’s “bad” for you or its calorie load that you miss the enjoyment of healthy eating. Solutions to all these issues are within your reach.
