Stop ✋ stressing about having the perfect diet!

Let’s face it, we are not perfect and especially when it comes to our diet. So stop ✋ stressing about having the perfect diet. Obsession of having the perfect diet can lead to a disorder called “Othorexia”.
Although not formally recognized in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, awareness about orthorexia is on the rise. The term ‘orthorexia’ was coined in 1998 and means an obsession with proper or ‘healthful’ eating. Although being aware of and concerned with the nutritional quality of the food you eat isn’t a problem in and of itself, people with orthorexia become so fixated on so-called ‘healthy eating’ that they actually damage their own well-being.
This is why I don’t follow a specific diet. Instead, I try to eat mostly whole foods (🍗🥗🍌) and minimize eating processed foods (🍪🍩🍭🍬🍫). I don’t restrict myself of any foods and I will have treat meal or meals here and there. (not cheat meals – bad connotation). If you have a bad day eating junk or drink too much, you must learn to forget about it and move on. You can’t do anything about it. Just get back on track ASAP!
