The nightmare started when I turned 14. I realized that girl’s could not eat to their heart’s content. They have to be like birds eating for just sake of it. Even after marriage, women can never enjoy the food they like and they can’t keep on eating without thinking about the calories.
Since childhood, whenever I felt hungry, I ate to my heart’s content.
I was pretty healthy with my hairs jet black and long. I observed my skinny cousin who used to never eat rice, potatoes and sweets. But I ignored and never asked why she was not eating properly.
Then I entered my college, and I saw girls getting fever after watching themselves in the mirror. Their cheeks were little fuller and waist was not fitting the old jeans which made them to have sleepless nights.
I then also observed some women who were very much comfortable with how they look.
I decided to better be like them rather than be like a model. I always opted for the comfortable clothes and ate whenever I felt hungry and whichever food I liked.
To my surprise, I am much healthier than my skinny colleagues. My energy level is always up and I never feel dizzy. My looks are also good than those with dark circles under eyes.
Perhaps we women should be more comfortable with our image. It’s important to be healthy and eat foods you like till you are able to, to relieve stress and be happier. Otherwise who can say that after an age level, you will be completely forbidden from eating certain foods.
