Freedom from hating my body
Freedom from sticking out in a crowd full of thin people
Freedom from feeling like I wasn’t good enough
Freedom from being embarrassed by how I looked
I spent the next decade going from diet to diet. Each one promised me freedom, yet left me miserable.
- Cut out all sugar
- Don’t eat meat
- Don’t eat carbs
- Eat 6 small meals of protein and carbs every day
- the zone diet
- the paleo diet
- Vegan, gluten free, juice fasting, lemonade cleanses.. you name it
- IIFYM – meaning, counting calories, grams of protein, carbs, and fats…
Each time I started a new plan I thought I had found freedom. “This is it. This is the one that will make it all work.”
But instead of freedom, each way of eating enslaved me, forced me to live a life that was full of rules, obsessions, and neuroticism.
Freedom doesn’t come from following a plan. It doesn’t come from giving your power over to the diet gurus. It doesn’t come from having a perfect body.
Freedom comes from creating a life that feels natural, enjoyable, and gives you the opportunity to feel amazing in your own body.
You deserve freedom.
