Your long term relationship with food

Food gives us life and allows us to grow. But for many, it's a source of despair and uncertainty. The battle between body image and food is one that's rarely talked about, yet it's extremely common. For some, it's simply a feeling of guilt over an indulgence, leaving you feeling like you're in some sort of debt. Like if you eat a cookie, it means you need an extra 15 minutes on the treadmill or dietary restrictions for the next few days. For others who suffer from eating disorders, it's a matter of life and death.

But aside from the relationship you have with your inner self, the longest relationship you will ever have is the one with food. And just like in any relationship, you're at risk of taking your partner for granted and forgetting to love and appreciate them. So next time you sit down at the table, be thankful for the food that gives you life & happiness and remember how much love is there.

If you or someone close to you is suffering from this battle, there is help out there that can help repair relationships with food. Nothing happens overnight, but there is a way to learn how to love food again.
