DIET AND YOUR PERSONALITY
Does our personality affect the way that we eat?
Of course it does, the same way as our personality affects the way we cope with stress, enjoy different things, fall in love with different people and are suited to different professions.
Unfortunately, many other factors also affect the way we eat including the people we spend our time with, the way we were taught to eat as children, our past weight loss experiences and our day-to-day lifestyles.
This is the reason that weight loss, and even weight control are hard… food and eating behaviour is extremely complex, and there is not one answer or approach that will suit us all.
For those of us who do tend to struggle when it comes to eating for health and weight control long term, taking some time to reflect on your personality and the way it influences your food-related behaviours is a powerful strategy.
Understanding some of our innate and learnt tendencies when it comes to our food intake is ultimately the only way we will be more mindful of these habits and be able to change them long term.
