What is Food Freedom?
I've seen this term floating around a lot lately, though it was first brought to my ears through the Whole30 creator, Melissa Hartwig, and refined in my head through her book Food Freedom Forever. I cannot say it enough, food freedom is so much more than finding what works for your body, it gives you this sense of confidence and self-awareness that boosts your life in ways that you never even knew were possible! I know it sounds too good to be true, but it's this transformation, an unfolding, and I think everyone should try it. Only if you are ready though, you can't rush the process. So this article is for those who feel called to make a change, do something radical, and start living life differently.
"The words you use to describe your food and yourself have real power. Treating yourself like a child who needs to "be good" on their diet is misguided. What happens when a child misbehaves? They are punished. Food should never be associated with punishment. Imagining your diet as a jealous lover who will be critical and disapproving if you "cheat" is damaging. Feeling guilt and shame over your "infidelities" will never lead to true food freedom. Linking your food choices with your "success" or "failure" as a person is destructive. Who you are and your self worth has nothing to do with the potato chips or broccoli on your plate.
Diets Don't Work
These words were seriously music to my ears! Because, I was listening on Audible, of course. This is the foundation I have come to realize and build my life upon. Every single thing that we do is a choice.
It's As Easy as 1, 2, 3
The Food Freedom plan is the most simple, three step process you will ever need to use around your food choices again. It's a lifelong practice and I want to invite you to join the community of hundreds of thousands of us as we take our health into our own hands and explore this road less traveled.
