I hope its food you love to eat.
“I can’t keep any of that stuff in my house. If I do I can’t stop eating it.”
My client told me this today.
If you live in the Arctic and can’t access a store for half the year.
In a city or suburb?
Food stores on every corner and in between.
Not so much.
When we believe that we have no control over what we eat, our brain sets out to prove this fact, and we eat whenever we encounter forbidden foods. Which, unless you live in the Arctic, is all the time. Then we tell ourselves that we have no control over what we eat. And the cycle continues.
Until we tell ourselves the truth:
We are in control.
We choose it.
And the way to choose actions from a place of choice and control is….
to believe the truth: that we are in control.
Next time you come across a forbidden food,
Remind yourself that you are in control,
Give yourself permission to eat the food,
Then ask yourself whether eating it is in line with your goal of a healthy body.
What do you decide?
An absolute result you can expect from weight loss coaching:
- you can have any and all foods in the house
- you can be at a huge buffet
- you can be at the best restaurant in Paris, where you’ll never go again
- you can be fighting with your husband/best friend/both
- you can be having the worst day of your life
And you will always be in control of what you eat
And you will always make a conscious choice whether to eat or not to eat.
And whatever you choose, you will be kind to yourself – before, during and after.
Aaaah, now that’s freedom.
