Let’s talk about THE #1 WAY TO STOP OVEREATING. Stop beating yourself up over not having enough willpower. It’s NOT your fault that you are overeating. Eating is one of the easiest ways to feel better fast when you are stressed. And you are stressed probably more than you realize. Our brains are programmed to spot danger and threats. All day, everyday. This is stressful!
Here is what you should ask yourself the next time you feel a drive to eat-
When was the last time I ate?
Is eating keeping me safe?
Am I eating enough?
Is eating protecting me?
Am I stressed?
Am I using food to get comfort?
A client once said: “Elly, I thought you were going to tell me to just eat more vegetables!” Yes, vegetables are so important! But you know that this isn’t solving all of your problems.
Don’t get upset with yourself up when you overeat. Recognize that this is a reaction to stress. Learning how to manage stress effectively and shifting your unconscious thoughts is the key to changing this behavior. ✨
When you lower your stress, you will notice that-
You don’t feel a DRIVE to eat.
You leave food on your plate when you are done eating.
You are losing weight without even trying. ✨
