Food challenges are one of my favorite things to do with my clients. So let’s get down to the nitty, gritty and talk about why you would want to do one and what it entails.
Why would you do a food challenge?
You would do a food challenge if you find that you are having anxiety around a specific food. This happens a lot for people who are struggling with disordered eating, anxiety, body image issues or are in recovery from an eating disorder. It helps remove the anxiety around the food. Because remember, there should not be anxiety, stress, guilt or shame around food.
