After writing about my exercise philosophy I thought I would also give you a bit of an insight into my food philosophy.
My food philosophy has changed dramatically over the past decade, from having no philosophy other than stuffing whatever I wanted into my mouth, to counting calories in an effort to ditch a few kilo’s to what my philosophy has become today.
I often have people make comments and assumptions about my food and eating philosophy which can get old quickly. My food philosophy has been constantly evolving over the years as I discover what works for me.
To get to my food philosophy today I feel as though we need to go back in time to where I didn’t have a philosophy other than eat whatever I wanted, in whatever quantities I wanted, however often I wanted and then added a day or two of what is likely to be called binge drinking on top of that for good measure.
I was lucky enough not to have any serious health issues but somehow saw the light myself and realised that I wasn’t doing my body or my health any favors by continuing on this path. Whilst I was by no means obese I was technically bordering on the overweight category according to the BMI scale (which I now think is a rubbish tool for measuring!).
