It’s impossible to have a relationship with Food. We often turn to food for comfort, stress relief, or as a reward, but emotional eating usually makes us feel worse. We will never appreciate food for why it was created until we really understand what it does and does not do.
Food does not have FEELINGS. It cannot fill our emotional needs when we are upset, angry, lonely, stressed, exhausted, or bored. It has no feelings.
Food does not SPEAK to us or comfort us on those bad days when no one understands us or how we feel. Food cannot tell us how wonderful we are and what our purpose on this earth is.
Food does not LEAD us to feel worthy, good enough, happy, sexy or desirable. Food does not determine how we feel.
Food does nourish and fuel our bodies. Let’s start classifying our food based on its ability to provide energy and nutrition the body needs to function optimally. Keep it simple, be honest with yourself, and stay committed. Phil 4:13
