Healthy eating is (and always has been) a tricky thing for me (to be consistent with). Like so many other women, I have struggled with eating habits in the past. And, continue to mentally struggle over good vs. bad food, yo-yo dieting, restricting and giving into temptation.
But, when I made the switch to counting protein instead of counting calories, I found some peace in healthier eating. When I can see the good and positive things in food, instead of the negative things, it helps me to keep level-headed. For me, it isn’t about eating smaller amounts, less sugar (although I used to think it was), as much as it is putting in the food that will benefit my body most.
Eating is an area of health that I’m working on. I have to be truthful to myself, and say that I am not on the straight and narrow path with it. But with some reflection, prayer, and help from other books and insight, I’m hopeful!
