What's Your Food Story? // Food & Moods

When it comes to food, everyone has a story. The way you feel about food, think about food, deprive yourself or overindulge, the specific things you crave…There’s a story behind it. Your food story is a big swirl of many things: how you were raised; the messages you received from influential people and absorbed from the media; your positive memories and your painful memories about food. All of it comes together to create thoughts and patterns that directly impact your health and happiness. The bottom line: Finding peace with food isn’t about eating more kale, drinking more water, or doing more yoga. It’s about unlocking your inner narrative about what you eat and why you eat what you do.
