Should You Be Counting Calories?

Everything you eat has calories, that's kind of the point. Your body needs calories for fuel! Calories are not the enemy! However, if you are eating more calories than your body can use or too many empty calories then yes you will likely gain weight. These are the reasons I no longer count calories.

The Emotional Impact of Food

How does the food we eat effect our happiness? On the surface, the food we eat can physically make us feel good or gross, but I have found there is more of a link to happiness through food than just how our stomach takes it. The food we choose has a huge emotional impact. Food can be nostalgic or comforting. We view some food as a reward or a guilty pleasure. Craving “junk” can make us feel ashamed or deprived. Trying something new can make us feel adventurous. Food can be beautiful and sensuous, and artistic! Food can give us energy to live life! Food can even cure illnesses!
