I know all about health eating, I know what is good and what is bad (well like most of the population) and at the moment I don’t have an actual weight issue, but what I do have is an issue with food in general.
I seem to go from eating anything and everything in sight and by that I mean the unhealthy food, not the apples and grapes that are staring at me! I am eating cereal bars, biscuits, slices of bread and Nutella, chocolate basically anything that is sweet I am eating it. This is in total contrast to what I was (or wasn’t) eating 2 weeks ago.
2 weeks ago I was eating only when hungry, and that wasn’t very often, and was saying no to biscuits, crisps and chocolate! I spent most days drinking tea and coffee, I was by no means starving myself, but I also wasn’t being sensible about how and what I was (or wasn’t ) eating!
I know all this is to do with depression, either over eating or under eating, but I also know that eating as much processed food as I have been is not good for my mental health, physical health or my energy levels!
I KNOW what I should be eating, I know what is healthy and what isn’t but what I don’t know is how to change my mind-set to stop the bad habits. So if anyone has got any good ideas on how to progress that would be great. Ideas of freeing the house of all the ‘bad’ foods will not work, with 3 children to feed and lunches to make there needs to be a certain amount in the house, I also don’t think they should suffer because of me.
One other thing, I have done this before, cut out all rubbish, so I am capable, I just don’t seem to be able to get off the starting blocks this time!
