17 Food Charts That Might Change The Way You Think

It can be challenging to undo the years (generations, really) of conditioning when it comes to our relationship with diet, weight, and food. We’ve grown up with certain ideas of what’s wrong and right, and if you’re managed to live in a world where there’s no morality attached to food at all, I’m definitely jealous.

If you, like me, need a little help in looking at things in a different way, these 17 charts from @thefitnesschef_ just might do the trick.

17. All cookies are not created equal.

And they’re not all off-limits, either.

16. It’s not a zero sum game.

Give yourself a break more often (just not every day).

15. Have your snack and eat it, too.

Just watch your portions, yeah?

14. That healthy breakfast looks delicious, too.

And filling!

13. Just use less.

After a while you won’t even notice.

12. Neither of these are true.

It’s all about moderation.

11. It’s usually not as bad as you think.

You’ll have to track to convince yourself, though.

10. You can enjoy yourself and make good choices.

Revolutionary, I know.

9. Nibbles are nibbles.

We all do it, and they all add up.

8. I mean some of these aren’t even coffee.

So there’s that.

7. Tell this to the haters.

Especially to yourslf.

6. None of these are “bad.”

They’re just different.

5. You’ve gotta watch those salad dressings.

Talk about a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

4. You can cut your calories in half.

And still have a full plate.

3. Just eat the potato.

If they’re not fried, you’re probably fine.

2. It’s not about carbs.

It’s about calories.

1. A donut will never contain good nutrients, but one isn’t going to wreck your life.

Two isn’t, either.

All of these are just so interesting, and true, too.
