Eating for your emotional & physical wellbeing: Andi's Tips

by IBD Medical on May 05, 2024

Quite often when we think about food and eating well, the first thing we consider is eating for our physical wellbeing. Today, Andi (a T1D personal trainer and nutritionist who is also managing T1D herself) wants to challenge us on how we can have a more holistic relationship with the foods that we put into our body. Andi wants us to consider also eating for our emotional health. This way, we aren't just eating for the moment but also for the future.

How we can do this is by asking ourselves:

  1.  Am I just enjoying this food in this moment or will I also enjoy it after I've eaten too? 

This is a great question that can contribute to how you manage diabetes, your sleep, your energy and your mood. 

Andi shares that when you start thinking about how you'll feel after you eat certain foods, it will make your health goals (weight gain or loss, muscle building etc.) be achieved a lot quicker. Overall, it can help you manage your blood sugars better as you'll feel good and you've got the energy to look after yourself!
