Disordered Eating/Eating Disorders
How do you see food? Is it a friend? An enemy? A stress relief? Energy?
Food is fuel that helps the body stay healthy and allows you to participate in the activities you love. A healthy relationship with food honors the body’s need for good nutrition.
Improving your relationship with food and your body will allow you to…
- Eat foods you enjoy without feeling guilt.
- Spend less time thinking about food, weight, and body shape.
- Not classify foods as good or bad.
- Honor hunger and fullness
