Are you sick and tired of feeling like you can only eat the same foods every day? Do you dream of being able to go out to a restaurant and truly order what you want? Would you love to be able to go over to a friend’s house without worrying about what food they might offer? If so, this food fears challenge is for you.

30 Food Fears In 30 Days 

We’re going to tackle your 30 biggest food fears in 30 days. I know… breaking these are scary and a requirement for healing your relationship with food. So, here’s the deal. I will show you how to challenge your fears in an enjoyable and empowering experience. Best of all? After the 30 days, you’ll be 30 foods closer to food freedom!

First: Write down your 30 biggest food fears

There’s no wrong way to do this. Just start writing. If you’re feeling stuck, think about food groups, particular meals, special occasions, food rules, etc.

Second: Rank each fear on a scale of 1 (mild fear) to 5 (extreme fear) 

The catch? You can only put 6 foods in each column, so think carefully when ranking!

Third: Start your challenge!

On days 1-6, you’ll choose a different food from the “mild” column each day to tackle. Once you’ve completed that, move on to the “moderate” column for the next 6 days… and so on, until you’ve challenged all 30 foods. 

Example: If this is my list…

…I might start by having eggs with breakfast in the morning and then have jelly on toast tomorrow. So, the entire month might look something like this: 

I know what you’re thinking…. but do not worry about the extreme column just yet! There is a reason why you start in the mild column and work your way up.  You will notice that the more you challenge these fears (and realize nothing bad happens!), you will gain confidence, so when you get to those tougher food fears, you know you will be okay!

Challenging Food Fears TLDR:

Too long didn’t read: Challenging food fears can feel so overwhelming you may not know where to begin. Using this strategic approach of ranking your food fears from “mild” to “extreme” and tackling them one by one will not only allow you to conquer foods you’ve been avoiding but will also allow you to build confidence and gain momentum along the way.
