Natural Health Atlanta’s Marcia B. Williams, ND is here to give you her best advice on dealing with guilt.

Marcia B. Williams, ND from Natural Health AtlantaQ: How can guilt be described?

A: Guilt is a feeling of personal failure to oneself or to others. Nutrition is my area of specialty, and I see many clients with uncontrolled food cravings who feel guilty because of over-indulgences.

Q: What is the one thing that most people don’t know about guilt?

A: Most people don’t understand that focusing on the guilt they feel about eating unhealthy food lessens the control they have, and therefore makes the cravings stronger.

Q: What is the best way to get rid of guilt?

A: As guilt relates to food, a good strategy is to find foods that taste good and are also healthy. You will then feel good about yourself and the guilt will disappear.

Q: What is the one thing we need to recognize about guilt?

A: Guilt will prevent you from achieving your goals. With food, the more you overindulge, the guiltier you feel, so you keep eating to feel better, and it becomes a vicious cycle.

Q: What is your guilty pleasure?

A: I allow myself a very good dessert on special occasions. Chocolate truffles and strawberry shortcake are my favorites. I don’t feel guilty because normally I eat very healthy and exercise, so I deserve it!
