Here’s What People Say To Me..
I totally know WHAT I’m supposed to eat. But it is impossible to make myself follow through. All because of my cravings.”
And When Someone Says This To Me, It Is Usually Followed By This …
“The first few days of a new diet are easy peasy. I know exactly what I’m supposed to eat and I really embrace the discipline.
But then I’ll give into temptation. And just when things are going so well. It must be because I’m a weak person. Or maybe I’m just trying to self-sabotage. Or perhaps I’m chemically addicted to food.
And I’ll feel bad. OK, I won’t feel bad at first. Actually, I’ll feel pretty damn good. Better than I’ve felt in a while. But the aftermath is always horribly icky.”
There’s Such Shame From Giving Into Cravings and Emotional Eating.
“I’ll feel frustrated for letting myself down. And I’ll feel a deep sense of shame and failure.
But I’ll also start craving more food. I’ll want to eat the “bad” foods more than ever. Because it felt really good eating before it felt bad. And I’m beginning to think the secret to feeling good is eating bad foods.
And the longer this goes on, the worse I’ll feel in my body. I’m stuck in this horrible pattern until I get back into a place of diet and discipline. But once I get there, this pattern starts all over again.
And I’m just exhausted from trying”
And This Is What I’ll Say In Response
You aren’t hopeless. You aren’t unlovable. And this doesn’t have to be exhausting.
The diet industry is eager to tell you how to eat. What they really don’t mention is what it takes to heal your relationship with food.
You Must Heal Both Emotionally AND Physically
There are both physical and emotional factors that contribute to your cravings. But how do you heal? This isn’t an episode of Bewitched where you can just wiggle your nose and POOF! Your cravings are gone!
Steps To Take To Reduce Cravings
- Eat special foods that will help appease your cravings
- Do a specific exercise right before you binge
- Create a special game-plan before going to the grocery story
- Allow yourself to feel this one feeling (The exact feeling you’re blocking may surprise you.)
- Explore your cravings with a simple challenge
