Food and eating are wrapped up into our friendships – we bond over meals, chat over dessert, and create memories over our food experiences. And, because that bond is so strong, your friends may want your food relationship to stay exactly as it is, particularly if you are “food buddies,” meaning that much of what you do together involves food. Your “food buddies” may fear you changing when you become more conscious of how food affects your body, your energy, and your overall health. They may question, “Will she leave me behind?”
The thing is, it doesn’t have to be that way! Learn to identify your food frenemies and what you can do to stay on track with your goals.
