Challenge the Food Police
No more telling yourself you're "good" for eating minimal calories or "bad" for eating a piece of chocolate cake. This refers to the "food police" inside your mind, which monitors the unreasonable and unsustainable "rules" that dieting creates.
The food police shouts out negative comments, hopeless phrases, and guilt-provoking statements that just make you feel bad about yourself and about food. "Chasing the Food Police away is a critical step in returning to Intuitive Eating," Evelyn and Elyse state in their book.
