Here are a few real-life examples of how your views on food, self-perception
can impact your weight. Let’s see how it works in real life. You may have heard some of them before:
- It’s not OK to eat after 6 p.m.
- Vegetables are healthy.
- Cakes and pastries are not.
- Intermittent fasting is the best option for your body. It’s not really wise not to use it.
- Neat and slim people are beautiful and healthy.
- You can’t have leftovers, even if you can’t really finish your plate.
- The only way to watch a movie is with popcorn and treats.
The very idea of healthy eating is based on mixed and conflicting information. Nutritionists often say we need to eat more vegetables and no fats. And later, we learn about specific keto diets that actually require eating fats to lose some weight. Let’s not forget about vegans and vegetarians either. And all those people are saying—loud and clear—that their diet systems are the best systems of all times.
At the same time, the gigantic food industry tells us every second that their products can help us relax or become famous. The fitness industry suggests that you need to work out more. Fashion tells us that slim bodies are good, healthy, and happy.
