Your doctor has you afraid of food?? Why? Additives? The pandemic? I can't imagine an MD making someone afraid of food. You need to elaborate a bit more.

Begin with baby steps. Buy food in its most natural state rather than prepared or processed. Buy your favorites so you will want to eat them. Avoid dining out until you have regained control over your fear.

Is there a reason your md is discussing food with you?

Is it possible you misunderstood him?  If he’s warning you about chemicals and unhealthy additives, it may be a wake up call if you’re consuming a lot of them in your diet.  Could he be encouraging you eliminate processed foods and eat more whole, fresh foods?  That’s a good thing.

Why not ask again about the restrictions?  Are they for a medical condition or due to a prescription?  Could there be a misunderstanding?
