Emotional Eating 101 and HOW to Stop
Do you eat for emotional reasons? Then this video will be helpful to you. It explains what is happening when we eat for emotional reasons and how to stop it for good. I talk about 2 ways how to stop emotional eating- the hard way and the easy way.
Emotional eating is about using incompatible and unrelated tools and activities to fulfill some emotional needs. Instead of fulfilling or addressing the relevant problem or a need, we simply use incompatible and unrelated tools or activity to distract ourselves from emotional pain. Each time you ate for an emotional reason, the neuropathway was created and repeatedly made strong. So now you developed 2 big problems. You have emotional needs that are not addressed and fulfilled. And next problem-your eating became dis-ordered as you mixed up your original “hunger-food” association and added up many “emotion-food” associations on top of it. I offer solutions for you in this video.
I wasn’t always having eating freedom and permanently slim body. I had eating disorder for 12 years (food addiction, binge eating, yo-yo dieting, emotional eating, compulsive overeating, fasting, starving, bulimia etc). So I had no idea that I lost this natural partnership/respecting boundaries of my body and that’s why I was putting on weight so easily. I was obsessed with losing weight and did many extreme eating disorder and diet behaviors. If only I knew then, how easy it was to have slim body!!!
Unfortunately, I was listening mainstream advice on how to lose weight and got completely derailed. It teaches to go against our bodies and ourselves, to be completely disconnected from our bodies.
After 12 years, I recovered fully and achieved eating freedom and slim body in just 3-6 months. Since then (5 years now), I have the same stable naturally slim weight and have complete eating freedom. All this just because now I am in tune with my body, I partner with it, respect its boundaries and not going against it as I did before. You can have it too!
