I think this is a question I have struggled with for a long time. When you have an eating disorder, you become obsessed with food. It controls your thoughts and your days, and really, your life. Part of controlling it is being very methodical with your food, having it planned out and easy to follow, something I LOVED about the NPMP. But here I am, now wondering what I am going to eat!
I have talked about different diets a lot on this blog, I have tried pretty much everything. I have tried restricting, I have tried moderation. I have tried low carb, I have tried Weight Watchers, and everything in between. I was going to try Whole 30 but then the day I was going to start, I had to have emergency wisdom tooth surgery that threw a wrench in that plan.
So do I attempt Whole 30 again? Do I try something different? I have been researching paleo for a while, do I take the leap and just try it? Do I even need to follow a specific "diet", or can I just keep practicing 80/20 clean eating?
And if I do decide, do I have to tell you all about it? I feel like I start a lot of things (like whole 30) and never finish them (for whatever reason) when it would just be easier to try something, see if it works, and tell you about it later.
The truth is- there are so many different ways to fuel our bodies, and not every one is right for everyone. My ultimate goal with food is to just eat. To find food I enjoy that is good for me, and to not have to think about it day in day out. The last 20 weeks were great because I had dinners figured out! And since Ginny and I collaborated, about half of the recipes were new to me! What I eat is pretty boring. We have the same 10 recipes we recycle over and over, so thinking outside the box, and getting new recipes was really awesome.
So I guess the answer to my question is "who knows". But I am curious- what do you eat? Do you follow a specific diet? Do you like it? What do you like about it? Please tell me I am not the only one who thinks about food this much lol.
