Food and Behaviour
Posted on by Carolina Capellari Simon
Today the science of nutrition is more linked to the study of human behaviour, which takes into account the feelings and reasons why it is so difficult to maintain a balanced diet. Dealing with changing eating habits is a complex process that involves behaviour, frustrations and small victories.
The question is, what path are you tracing to get there? Have you ever wondered about the methods you are using? The most used method is the restrictive diet or any "strategy" disguised as revolutionary or innovative.
I receive in my clinic a range of patients with several very classic behaviours from this obsession with “being healthy”. These people arrive with weakness, carbophobics (fear of consuming carbohydrates), extreme anxiety, guilt, suffer. If they deprive themselves of social life, they isolate themselves and think that food is suffering and deprivation.
These patients, even when they managed to reach their “ideal weight”, remained dissatisfied. Probably because dissatisfaction had nothing to do with weight or being thin! Do you understand? The root of these problems is much deeper and is not usually cured with fitness or healthy eating.
The observation of these symptoms and behaviour is something that I developed over the years as a nutritionist and ALWAYS that I identified, referred for psychotherapy.
The advice I give is: always seek help to find the balance between your health and the love of the body you have, without impossible ideals.
Here at the clinic in Harley Street, we provide the patient with exams, cutting edge technology in body composition evaluation and professionals of the highest standard to help you deal with your weight, health and emotions! Online consults available worldwide!
