Struggle with throwing food away when you can’t save it, even if you’re full?
When you’re emotionally attached to food, it can be tough to honor your fullness when there’s food left on your plate, amirite?! 😬
ESPECIALLY in circumstances when you’re unable to save the food for later (ugh yeah 🙋🏼♀️)
Here’s the thing – when you reach a level of fullness where you feel physically and emotionally satisfied, whether you throw that food away or eat it, it’s waste either way.
- It’s a waste when you throw it away because you didn’t eat it.
- And it's a waste when you keep eating it because your body already has enough.
So if it’s a waste either way – a more helpful question is, ‘what is the best choice for me at this moment?’
- 😋Sometimes, I’ll be to keep eating because the food is just that good, and the stomach ache is worth it.
- ✋🏼Sometimes I’ll be to stop because the discomfort isn’t worth it.
No right or wrong – just a choice!
