One of the reasons why so many people weigh more than they’d like, and keep gaining weight, is because they use food to meet needs that it can’t meet. 

You’re lonely and want connection, so you eat.

You’re fearful, so you eat.

You feel misunderstood, so you eat. 

But what’s wrong with those examples? 

Food can’t meet any of those needs.

It can’t be your friend or lover, although Heaven knows some of us have tried.

It can’t quell your fears. 

It doesn’t have the ability to understand you. 

All food can do is give your body fuel and make your hunger for that kind of nourishment go away. 

Sure, eating will take your mind off your real needs for a few minutes, but then you’ve eaten a bunch of food your body may store as fat, and still will be left with those underlying needs.

That’s why in this episode we discuss the fundamental categories of human needs, and why your happiness and well-being depends upon meeting them for real, instead of trying to meet them with food.

Tune in to learn how to get in touch with your needs and work towards meeting them in a lasting, meaningful way, and notice how your urge to eat when you aren’t hungry dissipates.
