As part of my mission to be more of an intuitive eater in 2016 (check out my full list of goals here), I decided to delete the calorie counting app I use. I was definitely way too sucked into the numbers. Almost every day I either felt guilt for going over what I thought I should be eating or if I was under my allotment, I would eat without being hungry because I thought I “deserved it.” When I was close to reaching my goal, I would go for a low calorie snack rather than a higher calorie, but more satisfying choice.
I am starting off in a very positive mindset and am trying to truly listen to what my body is saying. I will eat when I am hungry and I will eat what I crave. This may seem simple, but for me, I know this is a big change and is an end to what I have been doing for YEARS. Wish me luck!
Do you calorie count? Did you start and stop?
