Does Anyone Else Feel Like They Cannot Eat Properly?

Does Anyone Else Feel Like They Cannot Eat Properly?

I just can't seem to eat healthy. I know exactly what I should be eating and how much but it's like I don't even care. I survived a heart attack wouldn't you think that I would want to prevent another one if I could. It feels like I don't even care because I'll eat whatever I want to and it's not good. It's like pass the cheesecake in the chocolate now please

I see this is an older post? But have to ask you is you are exercising? walking? doing other things to improve health?...meaning food is not the only issues you think? The answer to the one.... re:not care what you eat or at the very least it's not helping with your heart issues is .....You Will When You Feel You Are Worth it...maybe ask yourself why you feel it doesn't matter & find out why..go from there......peace & self-love.

It is almost impossible for me too. I find its easier eliminating the bad food one at a time. A month later another. We will get there. We have to be kind to ourselves. Good luck and prayers.

I find that in the morning I’m really hungry,so I have a big bowl of muesli with plenty of fresh fruit in it,this sustains me till the afternoon,then I try to eat as healthy as possible,theres nothing wrong with the odd treat just keep it the odd treat,and not a regular indulgence, If you think heathy ,you’ll be healthy,its just a mindset you’ve got to get into.On my daily two mile walk I make sure I pass a few fresh fruit shops and see whats selling that day , THINK HEALTHY,BE HEALTHY,xx

Glad you are eating healthier...my problem seems to be that the meds are changing my appetite and taste buds; used to have 5,6 cups of coffee, am down to 1.5; I have been upping fruits and veggies, take a multi vitamin and heart fish oil pill from CVS. Remember to stay away from SALT ...it is in EVERYTHING...God bless and take care
