Social media

There are pros and cons to social media – in general – not just for nutrition, there is good and bad/positive and negative information out there. There are so many apps offering their services to help you achieve whatever your goal might be, it’s easy to get sucked in and follow their suggestions, even if you are confused by them. So, use them for what you want from them – not the other way round.

For example, an app helping you track how many steps you take, how many calories you’re eating, sleep, mindfulness – they are all good, as long as you remember, that they aren’t the answer – whatever change you want to make – it has to come from you in the end .

Looking at amazing images of people, food, and hearing their stories can be inspirational – but they are only putting up the good bits. It’s not real life – it’s edited.
