Which one of these would YOU pick to snack on? 🤔Let me know in the comments!👇👇 by @no.food.rules⠀
Knowing what to snack on can be confusing. 😫One of my 1:1 clients recently sent me a message while she was out-and-about saying she was stressin’ over what to buy as a snack. Sweet potato chips or Cheez-Its? 🤯One was “healthier”, should she pick that one? But would that be succumbing to diet culture and what she “should” be doing? Can you relate to this frustrating confusion!? 😥I messaged her right back (I give my clients the highest level of support in my program🙌🏻) & said, girlfriend, what do YOU want & which one will satisfy you? If the “healthier” option will do it for you, by all means, pick that option. But if you’re REALLY hankering for the Cheez-Its, pick those. Why? If you pick the chips you won’t be satisfied. 🙅♀️Your mind will keep thinking of the cheesy flavor 🧀& you’re likely to over eat on the “healthier” one trying to satisfy that cheesy desire- which WON’T happen, leaving you frustrated. 🙄This started to make sense to her. 🧐How to honor your health but also your cravings. Don’t automatically pick the “unhealthy” version because #foodfreedom. Pick the healthier version if it will satisfy you just as much, but pass on it for the things you REALLY love.⠀
For example, I’m not a salty-snack kinda gal, so I’d pick the sweet potato chips. 🤷♀️They’d “do it” for me. BUT, when it comes to dessert, say, berries VS ice cream, 99% of the time heck NO would I pick the healthier option, the berries. ‘Cause I’m a sweet tooth kinda gal and want the ice cream🍦 (if you watch my stories you KNOW🤣) If I had berries I’d constantly think about the ice cream & likely eat tons of berries trying to satisfy my craving, which just wouldn’t happen- they’re NOT the same.⠀
