I try pretty hard to show you my low points as well as my high points. Like every person on the planet, I have the high and low points and both need to be recognized. I think social media can be pretty misleading and dishonest, but only if we feed into that "highlight reel" mentality.
I share pictures of treats more often than the healthy stuff I eat for one reason: I like food. I get excited about treats and tasty things, as much as anyone else. I don't want to mislead you to think that this is how I always eat.
For every "treat" or "fun food" I have, I have anywhere between 8-10x as much of these meals. The pain of being a fat kid helped me totally dissociate my need for taste in the majority of my meals. These meals are totally about the utility, not about the taste at all.
Here, I have about 400g of cut green beans, topped with cottage cheese. I try to eat at least one pound of veggies per day when I'm on my game. So, meals like this are necessary. I want you to know that I do have fun and treat myself often, because #yolo , but I also fill the much bigger spaces between treats with food like this.
I may not yearn for it. I may not love the taste. I don't really mind eating these things...but I'm not confusaed about them: I eat them to keep me healthy, to make me feel good in the long run, and to allow me to achieve my goals. Therefore, they'll always be there, and they'll always be necessary.
I encourage you to live a bit of the good life. Just make sure that good life is balanced out by the things that support YOU.
