Food is your fuel; this is one way the I like to think about food and eating.
In today’s society, it is so easy to have a negative relationship with food. Think emotional eating, eating to celebrate, eating on the run or at your desk, not eating enough because of pressure to look a certain way.
Using the analogy ‘food is your fuel’ takes away some of the negativity. We go to a petrol station to fuel up the car. We know exactly what fuel it takes to work efficiently and effectively, how many litres it takes to fill it up, that we need fuel up regularly and if we use the car often then trips to the petrol stations will become frequent.
