Do you often find yourself picking at food all day long?

Do you graze on snacks at the office and that's ruining your weight loss progress?

Do you feel that the lack of willpower is causing you to overeat in the evening?

This episode gives you some strategies on how you can break these behavioral patterns.

Episode Summary

Overeating is a habit (whether you want to admit it or not)

Step 1:

Develop awareness of your triggers

Step 2:

Step 3:

Based on the patterns you've observed, implement preventive measures, boundaries and structure around your day

When developing this awareness, bear in mind that

1.Only You Know What Your Mind and Body Need

2. Treat your observations without judgement-your realization is there to guide you

3. Labelling food as "good" or "bad" leads to more cravings, which leads to overeating

Positive reinforcement is more effective than negative reinforcement such as guilt or self-hatred.

You'll always have a relationship with food and your body, whether it’s a positive one or a negative one. Your life Is so much more about what you eat and how much you eat, what you weigh or how you look. So why not develop a positive relationship with food and your body, so that you can lead a more fulfilling life?
