Episode #8 Feeling compelled to eat

On today's episode I talk about what's happening when you feel compelled to eat, and what you can do about it.

Most of us often feel compelled to eat things, knowing that it has nothing to do with physical hunger.

Oftentimes we think something will taste really good so we desire it, and sometimes maybe we're feeling frustrated and want something to take our mind of what we're frustrated about, or maybe we're feeling in need of some comfort and we want those foods that make us feel better.

Our usual response is either to have, to eat whatever it is that we want, or to try and use our will power and resist eating and to try and push those feelings away. You may have done this before to try and avoid eating things when you've been dieting.

Well today I talk you through a third option. How to embrace those feelings, the desire, the frustration and the discomfort, whatever it is you may be feeling, so that you can process them, and enable them to dissipate, so that you feel better - without eating.

It's a skill that once learned becomes a total game changer if you want to find new freedom around food.

Listen in to find out more.
