Here is a friendly Whole30 and life after Whole30 reminder:
When you meet a food that wasn’t worth it… it doesn’t mean you have failed.
It doesn’t mean that it’s a bad food.
If you find yourself slipping into old habits it doesn’t make you a bad person.
It doesn’t mean your food freedom is shattered.
It doesn’t mean your reset was a total bust.
It actually means that you’ve gained knowledge, that you have a better understanding of your body and your health.
It is another part of this experiment where you get to learn more and more about your health habits and your relationship with food every day.
As soon as I shifted my mindset (which has taken a lot of effort, resets, counseling, Melissa Hartwig’s Food Freedom Forever and grace) I find myself at peace even when the physical response to a food isn’t a positive one.
I’m not perfect and I have bad days, but I have put in the work and found the building blocks and resources that I know I need to be able to see the world through food freedom eyes and that is more precious to me than I could ever explain.
