An experience that’s meant to be fun, adventurous, relaxing, and joyful can be made incredibly stressful and chaotic when you’re struggling with food and your body.
•It’s normal for scarcity mentality to sneak in and lead to eating all the food - “Who knows when I’ll have this again or if I’ll ever be back, better eat it while I can.”
•It’s normal to want to enhance the good vibes by eating lots of fun food.
•It’s normal to eat past comfortable fullness. It happens to all of us.
•Pay attention to how the food tastes and how it feel makes you feel. It’s not helpful thinking about how it could change your body/weight. Remind yourself: This is a diet culture thought and it’s not helpful.
•Eating past comfortable fullness can be a sign you don’t allow yourself to eat that particular food often enough. This will help you pick more variety in your food choices.
•It can also be a sign you’re not eating enough or you are judging the food as bad/unhealthy/“I shouldn’t be eating this.”
•It can even be a sign you’re planning a diet after the vacation. Diet mentality whether it’s past, current, or future oriented triggers a binge/restrict cycle and pulls us away from our internal cues.
•Give yourself permission to eat all foods and to enjoy your vacation, no diet required.
•Self compassion is key - it’s the part of you that gives your friends good advice. Self care is listening to this voice and trying their suggestions.
•You deserve to build a life you enjoy without being preoccupied with food and your weight. You’re more than a body.
