It is important to eat right, but it is also important not to become obsessive about it. That is when the problems begin.
Obsession about eating right could lead to several complications. You might get unduly stressed out several times. When you are stressed out, you release a hormone known as cortisol. This has an adverse effect on the body. Cortisol slows down the metabolic processes of the body and hence the weight problem gets much aggravated.
This is just one reason why you should not get obsessive about eating right. There is also the problem that you might be depriving your body of the required amount of nutrition by drastically reducing your food intake. You might not be getting the vitamins that your body needs to develop properly and that could lead you to problems with dietary deficiency diseases. Also, impaired nourishment may cause anorexia, a condition that can open up a whole Pandora‟s Box of health ailments.
Then there is the social aspect to consider. Wittingly or unwittingly, you might be tormenting other people with your food obsessions as we have seen earlier.
Hence, it is important that you don‟t carry your eating right habit so far that it becomes an obsession. You are doing this to manage your life, but don‟t let it control your life.
The best way is to treat yourself once in a while. Let yourself go on that one day of the week. Take your family along. This could be a Sunday dinner. This is the day your family knows you permit yourself to eat anything. Have a glorious meal that day, mostly as a reward for keeping up through the week. In fact, if you take this in the right spirit, every Sunday could be a sort of festival for you.
Don‟t stress yourself too much, and it won‟t become an obsession.
