Food choices – what do they tell about you?

Scroll this

Discussing food choices may be a real ticking time bomb especially for those who dealt or are still dealing with weight related issues. Whether it’s unhealthy choices that we make or, on the contrary, things we purposely exclude from our daily diets, what we eat on a daily basis in one of those topics any individual is sensitive to.

We have so successfully defined our personalities, set up goals regarding our professional life, know how to deal with the most complicated aspects of our lives, yet something as simple and natural as intuitive eating seems to be a serious downgrade for many. Marketing campaigns are most of the times misleading, based on false information or truth half told. These messages frequently block our inner voice, taking us further from our welfare and more towards destructive consumerism.

Whether you decide on following any of the below lifestyles or be an omnivore, as long as you feel comfortable with your choice, it means it is the right one for you.
