My decisions to eat are dictated by hunger and health. Many people eat based on emotion and cravings but, I am free of these issues. I only eat what my body needs to function in a healthy manner. I eat when I feel hungry, and avoid eating more than I need to feel full and satisfy my body’s need for fuel.

It’s All About Balance
On those rare occasions I overeat, I ensure that I balance my intake for the rest of the day. My food tracking skills help me make smart decisions that support me, and not punish me for previous choices. Food tracking helps me only eat what my body needs.
I Feel Good About Myself When Only Eat What My Body Needs
The types of foods I choose to eat support my health goals, and not my emotional state.
I know that eating unhealthy foods has a negative impact on my health, energy, and mood. Life happens, and sometimes I am tempted to eat foods that I know are unhealthy, but I am able to avoid acting on these urges and only eat what my body needs.
I Favor Foods That Encourage Good Health And Allow Me To Be At My Best.
I avoid using food as a means of self-medicating my anxiety, loneliness, boredom, or other negative emotions. By using other ways of managing these emotions I preserve my good health. I choose self-care over self-medicating.
Today, I choose foods with my health in mind. I eat nutritious foods in sensible portions and only eat what my body for the next several hours. I match my intake to what my body requires to stay in peak condition.
