Just eat whole foods and move your body regularly. After a long battle with disordered eating and compulsive exercise, I realized that the minutia isn't worth it — humans were meant to move and to eat, and you should find ways of doing both that fill you with joy! You should pursue good health, of course, but you should also pursue happiness and freedom from food constraints.
