In addition to getting honest about what we eat every day, my sister and I are practicing getting neutral about what we eat. We’re giving up good, bad, better, worse, not so good—that whole string of judgment words concerning what and how much we eat.
Our goal is to give up shame and guilt about food. We are eating what we are eating. We are making the choices that we are making. I want to get to a place where food doesn’t have the big emotional charge that it currently does in my life. Where a handful of chips isn’t the enemy. Where French fries aren’t taboo. Where I’m not eating in secret because I feel bad about what I’m eating.
Instead I want to move food into a realistic part of my life, not one of mythic proportions.
What might change if you got neutral about what you eat?
