How many times have you said to yourself that you’ll quit eating late at night tomorrow? Or that you will exert your will power over your binge eating the next time?
I have one of the nutrition and diet industry’s best kept secrets.
Do you want in on it?
I’ll tell you what it is …
Will power has nothing to do with your
unwanted habits or eating challenges.
No amount of will power can ever prevent you from engaging in an unwanted behavior.
It goes against nature.
Because the unwanted challenge is usually an SOS call.
A signal to something deeper that is distressing.
Using force and will power will never uncover the stressor or put an end to the habit. It will only make you feel like a failure.
The key that nutritionists and dietitians and the entire diet industry is missing is Awareness.
That’s right. Read it again.
Bringing Awareness to why your body is sending up flares is exactly what’s going to help you to squash that unwanted habit.
Binge eating is not the problem, it’s the symptom.
Over eating is not the problem, it’s the symptom.
Emotional eating is not the problem, it’s the symptom.
And the same goes for eating in secret.
Or any other habit you want to change.
At Food Heals, we are uniquely trained in Nutrition and Psychology, and how they intersect.
