Fitness plans commonly include attention to nutrition.
But it is less common for people to address some much needed foundational nutrition work. This work goes deeper than learning about recipes or what nutrients are in which foods. It is often necessary to examine and sometimes change our basic RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD.
That sounds straightforward but it isn’t. It’s hard work and it is very important work.
Below I offer links to different online food related quizzes. My hope is that by exploring these resources you will get some insights into your own relationship with food. I offer these with a caveat. Don’t put too much stock in the “answer” that they give you. I don’t necessarily support the outcomes of any / all of these quizzes. It’s just a chance for you to poke around with questions to help you better understand your own RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD. I encourage you to bring an objective mind to this challenge as you gather information about yourself. It might help to consider yourself an outside observer of your responses. If you meditate, do that first to remind yourself about staying grounded and calm.
This is the important part of this post à Once you are done experiencing the quizzes, using your own good judgment, find one or two food-related actions that you’d like to add into your fitness plan.
Here are the different online quizzes that might help you shed light on your relationship with food.
Here is one about food addictions. Please be especially careful to NOT jump to any unhelpful conclusions here. Remember that these are just a list of useful questions to ask.
So, you get the idea. Those were a lot of good questions to ask yourself about your relationship with food. It’s a big topic. Again, I encourage you to keep it simple and look for a couple small things that you can take action on now. Later, if you want, you can do this whole process again and add the next small steps to your plan. Deal?
