This is the third in a series of six posts that mirror the process of weight coaching. This session is about finding out what you are feeling.
If you’ve been successful at gaining weight I’m guessing you’ve done your fair share of emotional eating. The kind of eating that says, “I’m not tired/stressed/upset…” but the bottom of that bag of chips may think otherwise!
I love this quote from Brooke Castillo: “If hunger isn’t the problem then food is not the solution.”
I think that is as simple as it can get. If you are eating when you aren’t hungry and you want to stop – you have to figure out what it is you are trying to solve/avoid by eating when you are not hungry.
One time this week when you notice that you are not hungry but you are about to eat something or you just ate something when you weren’t hungry, ask yourself: What am I/was I trying to avoid feeling.
Just to see what comes up. If you want to share, I’d love to hear about it. You know where to find me.
