Some behaviors encouraged by the diet culture – like counting calories, weighing yourself everyday, following strict rules, overcompensating – are pushing us towards an unhealthy relationship with food and disordered eating.
We try to follow external rules rather than focus on our internal needs by trusting our bodies.
During these stressful times, we should definitely not pressure ourselves. We must shift our focus on feeling better, listening to our needs and fulfilling these needs.
Please be grateful and be kind to yourself.
