"You're already skinny enough."
"Whoa, are you really eating ALL that?"
"Can you just stop weighing everything for one day?"
Some of these things may mean that your healthy behaviours are in fact not that healthy:
o You’re cutting out specific food groups, like carbohydrates, fats or protein
o You’re eliminating food items, like starches, dairy and candy
o You’re constantly anxious over what foods to eat and what not
o You follow a very restrictive written out meal plan
o You cannot wait for cheat meals on weekends
o You have experienced uncontrollable cravings
o You don’t want to go out with friends/family to restaurants
o You refuse to eat any meal not prepared by yourself
o You spend 24/7/365 tracking/logging your food
o You're fixated on logging every meal eaten and don't want untracked meals
o You’re constantly on a diet, or continuously dieting
o You only aim to eat 100% clean, organic, unprocessed foods
o You don’t like the majority of the meals you are eating
o You have a list of good foods and bad foods and try to follow it religiously
o You make excuses not to eat, like claiming you’re not hungry
o You’re constantly worried about the quality & quantity of foods
o You feel guilty or upset when you stray from your diet
o You force down an unappetising meal
o You sometimes feel emotional (or cry) due to having to follow this plan
There are many more examples of knowing your healthy eating are not so healthy after all. These are just some of my personal experiences. Healthy eating shouldn't be torturous, you should still enjoy it... after-all, it's not a quick fix but a lifelong habit.
