Food Restrictions Bring Freedom not Limitations

FoodRestritionsBringFreedomNotLimitations

Out of curiousity, I looked up synonyms for restriction. A few of the words I found were constraint, limitation, restraint, and confinement.

Those words were how I would have defined food restrictions for nearly two years. On the surface these words are true. Food restrictions and elimination diets limit and restrain you from doing things giving you a feeling of confinement.

Now think about it for a minute. Are food restrictions really restrictive? No, they are freedom.  Freedom from health problems and the affect they have on your life.

They may prevent you from doing things now and you may feel held back at times, but in the long-term by dealing with these issues and healing your body you are gaining freedom.

When I realized this, I had this mind-blown moment. This is so true but sadly not how we often view them. Our perspective of food restrictions affects our attitude which in turn affects our actions. Remember the freedom you are getting in the long-term over the constraint you have for short-term, and you will find your perspective, attitude, and actions changing.
