Things I really enjoy about food freedom?

Making tasty, flavourful foods. Not plain and boring
diet-foods, because I know, low calorie/low fat will
decrease the satisfaction factor, which will probably
leave me ravenous even after eating.

Coming up with a new recipe – even when I don´t know
if ti will turn out good – because I know, food doesn´t
always have to be perfect and it´s not waste of

Forgetting about the granola in the counter instead of
obsessing over it.

Being able to just stop eating when I am satisfied,
because my body trusts me, that we are not going on
another famine soon (or ever again).

Being able to share food spontaneously because I did
not track the calories beforehand and I know, if I am
still hungry afterwards, I can just have something else
as well.

Snacking guilt free on granola when I feel like it.
