7 Reasons Why You Need to Become Food-Neutral

Are you tired of feeling guilty every time you eat your favorite foods? It’s time to break free from the cycle of labelling foods as “good” or “bad.”

Welcome to the world of food neutrality—a revolutionary approach reshaping how you view your relationship with food.

Food neutrality is a refreshing mindset shift that encourages you to see food without judgment or labels. It’s about letting go of the guilt associated with eating certain foods and embracing the idea that all foods have a place in your life.

Why does food neutrality matter?

You might be thinking “If I thought like that, I wouldn’t stop eating!” You might think you would be elbow-deep in packets of crisps or biscuits every day. But that’s not actually what happens when you have full permission to eat all foods.

This is the permission paradox, and it’s what happens when you have a truly healthy relationship with all foods.

Your relationship with food impacts every aspect of your well-being. Not only does it impact how you eat, you know it impacts your work, relationships, hobbies, interests, and mental health too.

The thing with food neutrality is that you don’t know you need it until you’ve gone really far in the other direction. You might be fully struggling with food – maybe you’re always thinking about food, or engaging in disordered behaviours?

It might be a steep uphill journey to reach food neutrality. But a healthy relationship with food is truly life-changing. I should know – I’ve found it myself and I’ve helped 300+ people find their version of it!

  1. You don’t want any guilt or shame around your food choices
  2. You don’t want to feel anxious or have spiralling thoughts before, during, or after you eat something
  3. You’re tierd of jumping from one extreme to the other – no more restricting to feeling full-blown out of control with food
  4. You want a happy medium with eating – you want to enjoy your favourite foods, while also feeling physically good
  5. You want to eat a range of foods again and feel truly satisfied
  6. You want to be able to trust your body cues to tell you what, when, and how much to eat. You don’t want to rely on external things to tell you what to eat – like calorie counts, food labels, and your “food police” voice
  7. You want to be able to decide what to eat, prepare it, eat – and move on without a big fuss
