Do you eat to avoid feeling negative emotions?
Have you ever considered what would happen if, instead of soothing yourself with food, you decided to feel that emotion that makes you uncomfortable?
What about those difficult situations in our lives that we can’t change?
If we don’t eat, what do we do to feel better?
In this podcast, we explore two kinds of discomfort:
The kind you get if you eat whenever you feel bad about something difficult in your life but you aren’t hungry. This causes the discomfort of gaining weight, your clothes getting tighter, your health possibly declining, and you feel bad about overeating or getting larger, or both.
The other kind is from feeling normal human emotions when we’re unhappy, stressed, frightened or any other difficult emotion without distracting ourselves with food.
Listen to learn how to stop eating in response to negative emotions so that you can lose excess weight and keep it off.
