does guilt make you eat better?

January 15, 2020

No really, ask yourself, does guilt make me eat better?

I know the answer for me -  temporarily. When I would feel guilty for eating something, I would temporarily eat better.
Maybe I would eat better the rest of that day.
Maybe I would eat better the next day.
Maybe I would eat better the next several days or weeks.

But then something would come up, cause you know, life. And I would eat something I would label as "not healthy". And even if I did not make a big deal about it, it was in the back of my mind.

So I would cycle around and many times say I need to get back on track.

And I would eat "better" the next day, next time, next week, etc.

But feeling guilty about eating never produces long - term good health and habits., Guilt is not the way you want to be lead into wellness. Guilt has no place in eating.
