When you were a baby, you would get hungry and cry. Then your parents or caregivers fed you. That is how human hunger is supposed to work. You feel a physical sensation of hunger, which means your body needs fuel, and you eat. You stop when you aren’t physically hungry anymore. You give your body as much fuel as it needs and no more.
But how many of us actually still do that?
We’ve been so conditioned to use food to avoid dealing with negative feelings, and to try to fix things besides hunger.
When we use food to fix things it can’t, the result is that we overeat and gain weight.
Every overweight person I’ve ever known is an emotional eater. And lots of people who aren’t overweight do it too.
But I’ve got some good, exciting news for you. You can stop emotional eating.
I relearned how to eat in tune with my body’s physical hunger signals and lost a lot of weight, and I want to help you do that too! I want to help you transform from a person who struggles with overeating and being overweight into someone who doesn’t even want to overeat, doesn’t even like feeling too full, and is slimming down to her naturally healthy weight. Because you can do this!
Listen to Episode 9 to learn the first step towards ending emotional eating.
