Q & A:

1.  “How can my family and I have a healthy lifestyle but still enjoy bad foods that don’t fit in once in a while without obsessing or feeling guilty? I’m so sick of feeling guilty.” – Gina

      • As an adult we should learn about our body and figure out whats good and bad
      • Healthy foods in the home include low amounts of processed foods (junk food) and high quality ingredients foods
      • Don’t impose strict regime on your kids about how their eating. Still let them have fun e.g. have a pizza night every 1 -2 weeks
      • Your kids shouldn’t feel the restrictions
      • Provide healthy options
      • Do not make it over-important

2.  “Let’s talk about how to tune into your body once you give in to the craving. So, once I eat the ice-cream, how do I stop eating the ice-cream?” – Healthy Girls Guides

      • Practice, practice, practice
      • Over time your body will adjust
      • Once your bodies adjusted, good food will taste really good
      • Your taste buds will readjust after eating food from the source
      • In time it won’t be a competition between good and bad food

3.  “Is there any great way to eliminate or reduce our positive nostalgia associated with foods from our youth that we know aren’t ideal to consume? It’s almost like the nostalgia causes the cravings.” – Exceptional Korean

      • Do a detox and take out the Toxic 6
      • Ask yourself these questions: what you are getting from this food? Is it inflammatory to your body? Is it healthy for you? What is it that I’m getting out of eating this every day?
      • Taking a step back is really difficult, you have to figure out how to enjoy the nostalgic experience without the added food element
      • Sit in your feelings and let your emotions flow
      • Breath through it
      • Make a responsive choice for your body
      • Do something good for your body
      • In time you’ll be able to train yourself to have this particular food as a treat without the cravings
