  • I am just waiting for you to be walking and chatting to the camera and actually pass someone else walking! Where’s all the other walkers?! ��

  • The tip at the end about treating yourself/your body like you would a friend is brilliant and definitely something I will be implementing. One of the things that helped me most with my disordered eating habits is being open about them with friends. It can be hard and embarrassing, but it’s helped so much when friends ask if I’ve ate and encourage me to do so if I haven’t. Sharing your goals and finding a support system can be so beneficial when fixing a relationship with food, because it can be such a hard thing to do on your own.

  • While I’ve never had a bad relationship or an emotional connection with food, I did have an uneducated relationship with it. My issue was not understand what I was actually eating and the effect it has on my body. Learning about macros and nutrition its self has been so freeing for me! And YES, I LOVE cooking and it made my postpartum weight loss much more enjoyable! Thankfully I’m able to stay home with my kids and cook 90% of our meals. One of my favorite places to go is the grocery store…lol I’m such a mom, but I enjoy it!

  • Hi Kara! Thank you for sharing this wonderful and informative video.

    I am 9 days out from my first bikini competition and could not be more excited with the package I am about to bring to the stage. However, since it is my first time competing, I’m worried on what will happen after.

    Will I binge and eat everything I’ve been deprived of?
    Will I restrict myself just as much for fear of putting back on some (needed) weight)?

    What is your best most concise advice. Much love xoxo Danielle

  • just went to several different markets looking for non dairy yogurt with little sugar. impossible. all< 10g sugar. Even non fortified nutritional yeast wasnt available at sprouts,. 10k calorie challenges are so dumb. thx for pointing that out. your moms the best

  • A whole other can of worms is orthorexia… Which can be the ugly side of eating healthy and thinking about how each food benefits you it can easily turn into its own obsession. Probably a topic for another time though 😉 Love this video!!!

  • Thank you for this video! I needed this. So helpful, I struggle when I leave work to just go straight home to eat and not stop somewhere.

  • I love you so much. I’m a runner and it’s hard when you don’t look like everyone else on the starting line and I always compare myself, but you help me realize the being healthy is what’s important most

  • My relationship with food is phucked up as hell.
    Being really restrictive, then binge eating… then starving myself as punishment for eating. I still didn’t lose weight. Even did keto… only lost 2 pounds in two months.

    My mental state was preventing me from losing weight.

    When I decided that I didn’t care and I was going to build my relationship with food, I finally lost weight.
    Your past videos have helped me change my mental health along with ‘clean and delicious’ channel. She has a series about intuitive eating.
    Thank you for this Kara for this! ����

  • I have a horrible relationship with food, but I’ve been working on it. My parents, though I love them very much, are the biggest reason I have such a horrible relationship. All of my life my mom has been on and off diets and both of my parents constantly comment on the way they hate their body and how they’re fat. Because of that I’ve always been obsessed with how I looked and I’ve always felt fat and when I’d try restricting myself, I would eventually binge and then feel so guilty about eating whatever junk I had.
    But now that I’m an adult and learning to love and nourish my body, I will allow myself to have a brownie or some chips if I want, rather than not eating it and then bingeing later. So I just have a little a time when I want it and it makes me binge a lot less. And rather than being focused on my body, I think about my parents health and how I already have a good chance of getting diabetes. SO I think of eating healthy and exercise as a way to both fuel my body and prevent health issues in the future.
    I know this was long and I’m not sure if you read this, but you’re one of the biggest motivators and you teach me so many things. Without you I don’t think I’d be going down the road to better health! So thank you so much <3 I appreciate you so much and I love all of the knowledge you bring in your videos!

  • A lot of good advice and good thoughts! In regards to a conversation you had with another person in the comments, about how some people eat low calories in the form of junk food.
    I was one time watching an episode of “My 600 lbs life” I think it’s called, and the doctor said the person was malnourished. I couldn’t understand how that could possibly be, when they were eating like 8000 or 10 000 calories a day. But they were getting all those calories out of junk food, so no nutrients, no vitamins, nothing. A ton of calories and no nutrients, like drinking coke all day. It was eye-opening for me, since I was having pretty much the same diet, except it was a normal amount of calories. It was one of the things that made me change my eating habits.
    Also, your mom is so subdued compared to you! ��

  • Pizza is junk food in the US but Italian pizza is actually not that unhealthy, it’s just that it’s a lot of carbs but we use only fresh and good ingredients, it’s baked (nothing fried on it), not that thick, plus there at not as many toppings… unfortunately American pizza has transformed a good food into trash >.< Anyway, luv your videos, keep up the good work! P.s. isn’t your name Italian?

  • Thank you so much for this video, I’ve been struggling with my relationship with food lately and this has been so helpful and informative. It’s so appreciated!

  • You need so many more views… this is TRUTH. I feel like no one talks about this stuff and it needs to be addressed way more often. Thank you so much for putting this out here.

  • I like 16/8 intermitent fasting method. Started with it 3 months ago, and I like the effect. Love to hear your words of wisdom Jimmy.

  • When you said that we should all strive to do what is best for our us where we are at right now that really resonated with me. It also meant so much in your previous video to hear that you had been in a season of life were you were only working out twice a week or so. To know that there is so much more than fitness and that our healthy selves will look different and have different routines in different seasons is such an important reminder, one I know I often need. So thank you for your transparency and truth. <3

  • I really appreciate this video. I’ve been working on my relationship with food and making it better. Relationships with food are often emotional and working on this relationship is difficult but rewarding. Thank you for vlogging about this topic and I look forward to your next video!

  • Is there any chance you would do a video about following a good diet on a low budget? It would be SO helpful and wildly appreciated!!!

  • Really appreciated this video!! I’m a big over-analyzer, over-thinker, control freak when it comes to food. I try to “justify” my food choices ALL the time and the more I “deny” myself the foods I crave, the more I desire them and eventually I cave in. It’s a really unhealthy cycle and I’m sick and tired of feeling like a slave to food. I track my calories and macros too but that may be part of the problem… Why do I make this so confusing hahah. Pardon the blabbering ��

  • I like 16/8 intermitent fasting method. Started with it 3 months ago, and I like the effect. Love to hear your words of wisdom Jimmy.

  • Yeii!! Hi mommy!!
    It’s amazing that you have a good relationship with your mom!! Your sunglasses are awesome, it suits your face very good!!
    I need to work on my relation with food… Hehe I have the tendency to think about what is bad about the food I’m eating, instead of thinking about the good things, or eat healthier foods…
    So… This videos are awesome!! You are awesome Marisa!! Keep bringing that amazing content!!!

  • Hi Kara! Thank you for sharing this wonderful and informative video.

  • Gosh this is such an eye opener!! My husband and I are constantly having those battles with food such as what to eat, when to eat and all of those impacts. My mindset has changed over the years and I think I put way too much of a emphasis on it when I wish I could relax when it comes to eating! Thanks Kara for this awesome talk!

  • A whole other can of worms is orthorexia… Which can be the ugly side of eating healthy and thinking about how each food benefits you it can easily turn into its own obsession. Probably a topic for another time though 😉 Love this video!!!

  • I love that last piece of advice! The whole video was a masterpiece with very important info but that last point drove it home! I teared up a little because I thought about my son and my daughter like you’re right I would never starve them or force them to exercise just because they ate something “unhealthy” I’m always telling myself I’m only going to live once I get 1 body 1 life I just need to dial it back on enjoying all the foods I’m a major food lover I cook a lot I make my own breads and sometimes it’s not the best idea to make a ciabatta loaf and sit in the kitchen dipping it in olive oil @12a cause it’s fresh and delicious lol I’ve learned my emotions get the better of me from time to time and when I would have a bad day or my kids wouldn’t sleep all through the night and have a bad day I’d eat the worst stuff possible. My relationship with food has indeed improved I’m not punishing myself anymore I enjoy the little things but I’m very mindful of how it effects me in the long run now. Biggest lesson I learned recently? Sugar=acne for me I cut it out had some candy and a cupcake a few days later had 2 giant pimples on my face felt like a failure but I definitely didn’t punish myself for it.

  • Thank you for making and posting this video. This past week has been rough on me. I’m overweight because of a medical condition and I was feeling hopeless and worthless. This has helped me feel so much better!:)

  • Just think about the mindset of eating for low calories. The whole point of food is to get things, including energy. Low calorie tells me you’re getting off on the high of candy and soda but don’t want to get fat, like a druggie who thinks “just one bump to take the edge off.”

  • It took me a while to get less obsessive with food, either eating too little or too much.
    I stopped rewarding myself with food and using food as a pick me up.

    I treat food the way I do alcohol… That cheat food is when I’m hungry and I fancy it, to celebrate a good moment. Rather to make me feel better or if I’m bored. So if I’m at a party, or a birthday, or a holiday… Then I eat what I want.
    But I don’t beat myself up.

  • This is so helpful I have been having estrogen low for 6 years n I did not even know about it.. now I know n really don’t know what to do? My bones hurt n my vitamin D is less

  • Hi mommy!!
    I’m not proud to say this but it’s part of life. During the last 3 years I have had several stages to discover the food that adapts to my body.
    *I have already exercised, so now I can eat a cookie (the whole package is eaten). I ate salad so now I can order dessert. I have eaten many donuts at breakfast, I ruined my day, so I better finish the popcorn and ice cream once.
    *No, I should not eat pizza, I should not eat cookies, I should not eat donuts… I even got to the point of not eating anything and counting all the calories.
    *The fruit is healthy, the oatmeal is healthy, the salad is healthy, the tuna is healthy, the chicken breast is healthy, so I can eat as much as I want, as long as it is healthy.
    But why am I still fat if I eat healthy?
    … Recently I started using an application to count the macros, and I realized that although I am healthy, I tend to eat a lot. That has helped me lose those extra kilos I did not want to leave.
    And to tell the truth, when I eat without counting the portions, I still have that tendency to overeat.
    And yes! I am an emotional eater!! So, i know the struggle…:(
