How do you eat your chocolate almonds?

there are two ways to eat chocolate covered almonds

  1. savour every single bite of deliciousness
  2. shove them in your mouth as quickly as possible before you (or someone else) catches you

the difference is in the allowing

when you allow yourself to have chocolate covered almonds whenever you want to
as many as you want
until you’re not loving them anymore
you savour every bite of deliciousness
and you may not want them that often

this is true joy eating.
I require it of my clients
and they resist me almost every time

they’re afraid that if they allow themselves to eat their most decadent foods
they’ll never stop

but they’re eating them anyway!!!
secretly, furtively, guiltily, shamefully.
or they wouldn’t be overweight!!!

my work is to convince them
that when we allow it
the resistance fades,
calm sets in
you’re totally present and aware with your joy food
and you’ll notice how little you need when you pay attention to every bite
and it’s not forbidden anymore

and you savour every bite of deliciousness
and then you continue on with your day

no self recrimination or self hatred
it’s part of the program
you’re required to do it

so do it
and enjoy it!!!!

About Forever Free with Bev Aron, Certified Weight Loss Coach

I work with emotional eaters who desperately want relief from emotional eating, but can't seem to do it on their own. They know they need to eat less and move more, but can't figure out why they aren't doing it. My specialty is showing them the why and the how. I also work with parents who are worried about their children's weight. I help those parents encourage their children to have a healthy body image and a healthy relationship with food.
