For the Sake of Your Health...Eat the Cookie!
Diana Marlin, RD, LDN
If NOT eating the cookie will leave you feeling deprived, then for the sake of your health and well-being, I encourage you to EAT the cookie. Eat it freely. Not satisfied? Eat a second one. Grant yourself permission to enjoy every bite without guilt. Realize that the harm that dieting, restriction, and deprivation can do for your health and well-being is far greater than the harm that a cookie can do. To achieve wellness and peace around food, the all or nothing mindset has to be replaced with a mindset of gentleness and balance. 💕🍪
