Our bodies are so unique! The food that makes you feel amazing may make another person feel horrible.
While it is important to have freedom to enjoy the food you want to enjoy, it’s also okay to say no when your body doesn’t respond well to something.
This was hard for me to learn, and left me with “reverse food shame” for choosing the foods that are health-promoting for my body and brain.
We unpack all this on the latest episode of the podcast with guest Tracy Cromwell who recently wrote the book, Your Personal Journey with Food.
