I've developed quite an unhealthy relationship with food 😔, not sure how to regain a better relationship. I seem to constantly be overthinking food, and it doesn't help that I have OCD. Anyone else feel similar/had the same experience?

This is the exact reason i started this program! Ive been slowly restricting my diet more and more and trying to control every last thing until finally I cracked! I couldnt take this lifestyle and more and was so stressed by food all the time that i was doing more harm to myself than good!
Im loving the program as it does the thinking for me! I dont follow it religiously all the time as I dont want to again become "obsessed" with another food program!
But finding the yoga and meditations really useful and enjoyable! I'm working on eating foods that i enjoy and that nourish my body instead of focusing on every last macronutrient and doing workouts that push my body too hard all for the quest of a 6 pack!
Life is too short and being happy is way more beautiful than any 'perfect body'! Good luck with the program!

You're welcome.

Reach out when you need to. I'm sure lots on here can relate, including Maddie who describes her similar journey in her book "Get the Glow" xx

Many years ago... I lost a lot of weight, and was extremely thin...

It is not a good place to be.

I would recommend some good reading to get you into a healthy place in your mind. The food is just another vehicle for obsessing, you need to change your pattern of thinking.

For me now, healthy eating and living is not about dieting, or counting calories, it's about listening to your body, and nourishing it. Eat when you're hungry, eat foods that benefit you, and exercise your body and rest your mind. That is true health and something we should be taught in school!

Good luck, you'll get there. xx
