Be kind to yourself this Thanksgiving.
1. Listen to your body's hunger and satiety cues. people are healthier in all ways when
they eat with practicality and enjoyment.
2. If you over eat, remind yourself it's totally OK. Remember that normal eating is flexible.
3. Don't skip breakfast on thanksgiving.Eating regular meals and snacks will assist in preventing restrictive and/or overeating behaviors.
4. Commit to having a Fat/Diet-talk free Thanksgiving.
Common statements " being good", " how many pounds ", making comments about your figure or comparisons about what others are eating. Fat/Diet talk can make us feel uncomfortable, guilty and ashamed which makes our body image take a nose dive. If kids are listening-and most likely they are-they pick up on these damaging words and start to question their own eating choices and their own bodies.
5. Remember food is not the enemy. Be kind to yourself!
