I really dislike rules, especially food rules.
I like to do and eat what I like and what I want.
I also think that having specific food rules and restrictions will only lead to obsession over those foods you can’t have or the eventual binge eating of those foods.
I mean, have you ever been told that you shouldn’t eat something because it will make you fat, whether it was by a family member, doctor or the media, only to then start obsessing over that exact food or just eating it any way to prove you can eat it without getting fat?
At the same time, I know a lot of people that actually thrive off living by a set of rules or standards.
And of course, there are people that simply don’t know what to eat because of all the conflicting health information out there.
Everyone is different and I think it’s important to know yourself and learn what works best for you.
