24 Hours Eating Your Fear Foods

I hope you've had a great week, full of recovery wins! I hope you've been able to tackle your fear foods and kick the ED in the butt! I know that I've definitely eaten quite a few foods that used to scare the living daylight out of me! However, I've eaten them WITHOUT any fear. Want to know how?  

Well, I've faced my fear foods so often over the years that they have stopped holding any power over me. They have stopped feeling like the threats I used to consider them as. You see, by facing your fears repeatedly, you learn that the dreaded outcome is nowhere near the reality. You'll discover that you won't suddenly gain lots of weight or feel horrible etc. etc. Once you realise these truths through the practice of repeated exposure, your cognitions change. The fear dissipates. And the eating disorder slowly loses its stronghold.  

In the end, food is just food. And living a fulfilling life is so much more rewarding. So I challenge you to challenge your fears too. Join me in watching today's newest upload and grab yourself that scary snack as you do so! Make yourself a plan to tackle your behaviours and fears. Decide to beat the eating disorder for good.

When struggling with an eating disorder, food fears and food guilt go hand-in-hand. But if we challenge our fears and sit with the anxiety... that's how progress is made!  

So let me know: What are YOUR biggest fear foods and what are YOU doing to challenge them?  

Also, IF YOU WANT TO DECIDE MY NEXT FULL DAY OF EATING... become a Patron and send in your suggested meal plan! Whether you become a $1 or a $100 Patron, your suggestions count equally. Definitely give it your best go!  ... and don't make it too easy on me ;-).
