While your food foundation may be different depending on who you are, it’s important that you know what your Step 1 looks like when things get tricky. And if you’re feeling lost and unsure of where to start, consider one of what we call the “3 Pillars of Your Food Foundation:”
If you’re already doing those things, you might also consider developing a loving framework for when to weigh yourself, not drinking your calories in the form of sugary juices or smoothies, being mindful of how much you are eating, and making a plan for planning!
And while that may seem like a lot of potential “Step 1’s,” know that they absolutely work. These are the core building blocks of a loving and peaceful relationship with food – and when we put these steps into action, there’s a HUGE payoff for you relationship with food and for your life.
PS- of course, there will likely come a time when you’re feeling ready to become more flexible with this foundation.This is a time when you’re feeling strong in your relationship with food and the food “noise” is quiet. With that- go for it! You are the expert on yourself and it’s important to trust your wisdom about what’s best for you.
It’s important to remember the helpful saying: “If you don’t leave the basics you don’t have to go back to the basics.” There’s no risk in staying somewhere safe and protective if your intuition is telling you you need that support.
Also, know that life gets “lifey” and you can always come back to your foundation when things get tricky (and the sooner you catch yourself getting wobbling the better!). The basics are here for you to bring you back to recovery (and keep you in recovery!) always.
