Today, we dive into a common issue that many of us face on our intuitive eating journey: the fear of wasting food.

Have you ever found yourself eating past the point of fullness just to avoid leaving food on your plate? Perhaps you’ve heard the familiar refrain about starving children in Africa or felt compelled to finish an expensive restaurant meal because you don’t want it to go to waste.

Understanding the Fear of Wasting Food

This fear manifests in various scenarios—from everyday meals at home to dining out and even during vacations. It’s often tied to upbringing, where cleaning your plate was praised or leaving food was equated with being wasteful.

Listen in and remember that challenging old beliefs and embracing intuitive eating principles, you can cultivate a healthier relationship with food. Trusting your body’s signals and letting go of food waste guilt allows you to enjoy meals more fully and authentically.
