balance is key


Balance is the key to everything, especially when it comes to the relationships we have with food and our bodies. With so many diets out there, IIFYM and clean eating and counting calories and paleo and on and on, it all becomes really consuming. We tend to forget that life is supposed to be enjoyed, and that sometimes involves eating a massive cheeseburger with friends or eating a piece of cake that was made from a box (god forbid). Maybe you don't friggin' like the taste of kale. You won't die. Okay?

So stop counting every calorie and studying every single ingredient. It's mentally exhausting and can be mentally damaging. Don't get me wrong, it's good to be healthy and eat nutrient dense foods, but it's also okay to eat something you're craving just because you damn well please. Sorry, food police, but stay far away from me. I would much rather be mentally sane, and also in the best shape of my life even after a piece of pizza.
