I didn’t realise at the time that it was all driven by fear and anxiety.
You don’t need to get caught in this destructive way of thinking that food is either good or bad or you’ll never have a balanced relationship with food.
I call it All or Nothing Thinking, and it’s one of the six key blocks and barriers I’ve identified that stop women from losing weight!read more
