If hunger is not the problem, food is not the solution.
Many times we eat when we are not physically hungry.
We eat to disassociate from our body.
We eat to "feel better".
We eat for emotional comfort.
We eat so we don't have to feel a negative emotion.
Our body is designed to eat when we're hungry and to stop eating when we're full.
If you are eating because you're seeking emotional comfort, so hunger is not the problem, then food is not the solution.
Before you eat:
- Ask yourself "Why am I eating this?"
- Identify what emotion you're avoiding or resisting
- Allow yourself to feel
- Process and download that emotion by writing down every thought you have
- Only eat when you are physically hungry.
This way you can start losing the extra weight and keep it off forever.
