Do you fall asleep or wake up thinking about food? I know I do. But is that because we're food obsessed? Health conscious? Or both? (And yes, that's a thing.)
As someone who has been on both ends of the extreme (and you can read more about that here), it's a question that's been rattling around in my brain lately. When I was closing in on 300 pounds, all I thought about was the next Snickers bar, the next order of super nachos, or the next piece of cake. As a 160 pound marathoner, all I thought about was avoiding butter, not eating anything fatty, and how to get through the next family dinner without ordering any 'tainted' food, while gulping down endless glasses of water.
Neither of those options were ideal. They weren't healthy or optimal. But above all, they didn't make me happy.
The result of constantly overeating was being obese and overweight, and carrying around all that extra fat did not make me happy. On the other side of the equation, following such a restrictive diet kept me lean, but obsessing over every meal and morsel crushed my ability to completely engage in normal, everyday interactions, and that didn't make me happy either.
For a while, I bounced between the two extremes until I finally found something that works for me. Something simple and easy that helps keep me focused on the big picture and my long term goals. Something that's eradicated my food anxiety and brought me a lot more peace.
Simply put: I choose food that makes me happy and healthy.
And as easy as that sounds, it's been incredibly liberating in practice and something I don't think I've ever done before - as I was either too caught up in nutritional minutiae, or instant gratification.
But eating for happiness and long term health? Well, that's different. It opens the door to everything, and closes the door on nothing. And since I plan to pretty much live forever and be around for a very, very long time, it puts in perspective just how important those M&Ms are at any given moment.
It reminds me that I genuinely like to cook and eat real, organic, whole foods, as doing so makes me feel good and energized and connected to the world in a way that constantly consuming processed food does not.
So there it is: Happiness as a guiding principle to food choice. Happiness as the latest food trend, the newest food rule, the panacea for the masses.
I think I can live with that.
