Go For It or Moderation!
I am all for making better food choices and eating healthier. However, there are times where I just Go For It when it comes to craving good eats. Sometimes I even surprise myself that craving good eats leads me in a healthier direction. BONUS!

I have found for me that limiting, swearing off and banning certain foods just does not work for me. Why?!? The thing you want most is the thing you should not have! It is a vicious cycle and one that could potential control you and what you eat. DO NOT LET IT! There are foods that you may do that with because you can, have the willpower and no longer crave it. That is Great too!
I can admit that I have struggles when it comes to eating healthy. However, I also try not to make a big deal out of it because I want a healthy relationship with food and not develop food issues. Food issues could potentially result in destructive habits, cause stress-induced eating or not eating and contribute to an increase in weight. The issue with food that scares me the most is eating too much of something that is so not good for you!
I am learning that eating healthy DOES NOT mean you have to DEPRIVE yourself! It is really about making better food choices and it starts in the grocery store. Leave it in the store and do not bring it home with you! I know easier said than done at times. Who am I kidding, right!
