Motivation, morality, and food. Do you feel a sense of pride for eating certain foods and then guilt or shame when you make other choices? Maybe you are trying to motivate yourself to eat certain foods with the assertion that it is the “right” and “moral” thing to do.

We also pull from my episode with Dr. Shawn Hondorp to glean additional insight on this topic by reviewing her three psychological needs for autonomous motivation.
