TikToker finds a new way to lose the calories but “Eat what you want!”

TikTok trend 2023: "Eat what you want add what you need"

While this article highlights a new emerging trend on TikTok, advice from a medical professional is vital before making dietary or lifestyle changes.

New food trend unlocked

A new wave of mindful eating, the TikTok trend “Eat what you want, add what you need” has taken social media by storm. Originating from TikTok user @lizaslosingweight in October 2022, this viral trend encourages individuals to indulge in their cravings while enhancing the nutritional value of their meals.

The concept revolves around transforming ordinary meals into a satisfying trifecta—physically, mentally, and emotionally. If, for instance, pasta is the craving, the trick is to load the plate with additional protein and fiber, crafting a balanced and gratifying experience.

TikTok testimony

Mira Schofield, a 33-year-old from Guelph, Ont., embraced this healthy eating philosophy after stumbling upon Liza’s TikTok. Tired of the conventional advice to count calories and avoid “bad” foods, Schofield found solace in this approach, aiming for balance within her meals while enjoying what she eats. Battling hypothyroidism and potential hormone imbalances, Schofield opted for a natural weight loss journey by focusing on protein intake and meal balance.

This trend is not just about physical well-being but also about transforming the mental outlook on food. Schofield, shedding eight pounds naturally in three weeks, expresses how it made eating enjoyable again, emphasizing the absence of “bad food” and the importance of plate balance.

Certified nutritionist Rachel MacPherson applauds the concept, highlighting the significance of not categorizing foods as “good” or “bad.” Protein and fiber, when added to meals, contribute to a sense of fullness, stabilize blood sugars, and promote digestive health. MacPherson emphasizes that indulging in pleasurable foods is crucial for overall well-being, avoiding deprivation, and fostering a positive mindset around food.

“Eat what you want, add what you need” essentially aligns with intuitive eating, rejecting restrictive measures and allowing individuals to listen to their bodies. Schofield hopes this trend will redefine the narrative around food and diet culture, making a lifestyle change enjoyable and accessible to all.
