Think twice

Shape (Malaysia) - - You Right Now -

We’ve all been there: You’re do­ing great at stick­ing to your healthy eat­ing goals. Then you find your­self star­ing down a dough­nut at a meet­ing or a plat­ter of na­chos at happy hour. Don’t get us wrong, treat­ing your­self is an im­por­tant part of stick­ing to a healthy diet. But it’s not a treat if you in­dulge all the time, right? The only ques­tion you need to ask your­self when faced with whether or not to in­dulge: “Does this choice sup­port my goal?” Now, that goal doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily need to be weight-loss re­lated, but it can be. Or it can be about clean eat­ing, ditch­ing sugar, and get­ting more pro­tein – what­ever it is you’re work­ing to­ward. On an­other note, if you find your­self ques­tion­ing ev­ery sin­gle thing you eat, talk to a health­care pro­fes­sional like a ther­a­pist or a reg­is­tered di­eti­cian. They can help you work on es­tab­lish­ing a con­fi­dent, healthy re­la­tion­ship with food so you can spend less time stress­ing and more time en­joy­ing food.
