How to Stop Compensating Behaviors (Purging, Dieting, Exercising, Laxatives) and Be Naturally Slim

by | Jan 17, 2017

When we have a problem to keep our weight stable, we many times tend to compensate for eating food-by dieting, exercising, portion control, skipping meals or in the extreme cases-purging, fasting or not eating, taking laxatives and diets pills. If we must compensate- it means that we are over-doing something-in this case eating more food that our body needs or eating high calories food.

Instead of living life in this control freak mode, constantly have to watch our weight, restrict, control our food intake-the easy solution is to get into the state where is NOTHING to compensate for anymore. This state is what I call-Natural Way Of Eating (Partnership with Your Body) when we listen to our body, so we eat exactly when our body needs fuel, how much fuel it needs and what food it needs. In this way, there is NOTHING to compensate for.

Our body is guiding us all the time. However, we lost this natural partnership with our bodies and balance. The weight gain and disordered eating begun. You can always get back to this partnership with your body and be naturally slim for life.

I wasn’t always like this. 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 behaviours. 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!!
