Diet culture has created unreasonable rules and expectations for us to follow, all in the persuit of “health”. The food police monitor and enforce these unreasonable rules, by shouting negative jabs, self-defeating phrases and guilt-provoking accusations. Essentially, these are the thoughts that police our eating. The police station is located deep within our psyche.
As long as we allow the food police’s tactics to go unchecked, we will remain stuck- fraught with angst and worry about food, eating and our bodies. In order to fully re-discover intuitive eating, we must dis-arm and chase away the food police for good.
