Glutton Guilt

While peeling off the top of a double chocolate chip muffin, I realized how horrible I felt for indulging. Immediately I recounted everything I ate up until that moment, and calculated whether I could ‘afford’ the extra calories. Absurd. This is how so many young girls and women are living their days. We are made to feel guilty and wrong for eating something that tastes good; something that makes us feel good. End goal: impossibly flawless bodies without an inch of fat to pinch. Restricting ourselves to bird seed and yogurt will make us closet eaters, and thus, more guilty. Why can’t I have a rich chocolate muffin and feel good about it? We need to eat what we want so we don’t go crazy later in the week and pig out when no one is watching. Eating scantily can harm us more than we think.
