I struggle daily to eat. I never cared about what the food was or when I was eating it, only that I got what I viewed as a chore to be over. I fed my body whatever was near, cheap, easy. I drank diet coke like it was part of my blood stream and I needed replenishment. I ballooned in size and caused permanent harm to my oral health. It’s a cycle of abuse I cannot stop.
I don’t avoid eating out of fear of calories, but I don’t enjoy eating. The first step to having a healthy relationship with food is focusing on it as fuel for my performance. I force myself to eat more often and calorie count to ensure I get the bare minimum in. I would run all day but ask me to eat and I’d rather do anything else.
I am turning to you, my friends. I want to correct this issue before I do further harm to my health and body. I want to embrace food and learn to enjoy eating. I want to be a stronger athlete and food is the way. I would love for you to share what works for you with me. Any tips you have or advice I am interested in.
If you struggle with this as well and want to join me in having a better relationship with food, add your email. I have decided that it is time to tackle this and make my tomorrows better. My favorite proverb is a spanish one “Why put off till tomorrow what can be done today.” Let’s tackle this now!
