Food Guilt

Could guilt be more harmful than junk food?

I’ve just spent a lovely weekend in London catching up with an old friend but on the train back rather than thinking about the good time we had I’m beating myself up over poor food choices. 


In an attempt to feel better I googled ‘guilt over unhealthy eating’ and found many interesting articles but this one stood out as particularly helpful.

It has lots of good bits. The section that particularly struck a chord was ‘Don’t forget mental/emotional health’ which discusses the idea that worrying about junk food causing future illnesses (diabetes, cancer etc) could give rise to stress which could in turn cause mental health issues & diseases. 


Perhaps we’re better off just practising self-compassion & letting things go as we can’t go back and change them?

Do you ever suffer food guilt? What helps you?
