I was just wondering whether or not you're a healthy eater or if you eat more junk like food?
I try to eat healthily such as,
... Though sometimes I am tempted to eat cakes and the bad stuff which can make me hyper lol though no harm done,except I struggle with my teeth and gums which can be v painful
I have a friend who is Autistic and like me she tries to eat healthy but can sometimes phase into eating junk food all the time.
I think eating healthily works when you learn to enjoy it. I used to diet and grew to love the taste of vegetables, salad, tomatoes without any dressing or salt. Eating healthily was enjoyable for me. You have to sort of train yourself into it.Cake is trouble, yes...lolIn oune of BBC programmes about dieting they said it is important not to have a catastrophic thinking, that if you ate more calories, the whole diet goes and you start eating more junk food. Just stop and realise that you ate a slice of cake, fine, now let's make that juicy salad.. sort of thing.
Yes that's exactly it! You have to keep at it eating healthily and learn to enjoy it, eventually you do enjoy it, though cakes and sweets can be troublesome lol...
Ikr that's also true. Too much thinking results in steps back I have found. You end up snacking all the time and good healthy foods get thrown to one side. I used to regress back all the time but now I'm pretty good at eating healthier with only a few sneaky snacks now!
I have always had terrible cravings for sugary food. I do try to eat healthily, but from time to time I go back to my bad habits. If I'm worried about something or depressed I find it more difficult not to binge on sweets.
I am also flexitarian for ethical reasons.
Totally related Wag. When I get depressed or stressed I go straight to the bad stuff, usually chocolate lol ! That doesn't happen much now but when it did I would eat and eat which wasn't good.
What is flexitarian, if you don't mind me asking?
When you have some meat in your diet, but as little as possible. I was vegetarian for several years, but my cravings were too difficult to manage. I settled for two meat-based meals per week, or even less if I can.
