Is Emotional Eating Ruining Your Shape-Up Success?

This is a guest post by Kitty Holman, who writes on the topic of nursing colleges.

 

 

No matter if you attend the gym on a regular basis, if you are an emotional eater chances are you’ll never truly reach your weight-loss or fitness goals. If you are uncertain what emotional eating is, it is simply the act of eating when you are not hungry—meaning, you more or less eat just because it’s there.  Emotional eating is triggered by an array of different factors, including boredom, stress, fear, heartache and anger. And while it’s better than reaching out to other vices such as drugs and alcohol to help cope, emotional eating is equally as unhealthy and destructive—it can affect you both physically and emotionally, especially for those who get upset once they realize their body  has “transformed,” but not into the toned, statuesque figure that they wanted. To learn how you can avoid emotional eating and stay on track with your fitness goals, continue reading.

Listen to Your Body

The first way to avoid emotional eating is to learn how to pick up on body cues. Wait until your body tells you that you’re hungry before you start to snack. The obvious body cue will be a rumbling or growling noise. You might even experience a slight headache. But if you know that you ate just a few hours ago, instead of grabbing a bite to eat drink some water instead. Sometimes our bodies trick us into thinking we are hungry when in reality we are thirsty. So wait a while to see if the cravings or hunger surpasses before you attempt to head to the fridge. Regardless, it’s important to keep yourself hydrated by drinking the standard 6 to 8 glasses of water a day.

Remove Temptation

This applies to both food and removing yourself from the location that may trigger your emotional eating. The first thing you need to do is get rid of all of the foods that you typically turn to whenever you experience heightened levels of stress or sadness. The only way to learn some self-control is to not have those items available to you in the first place. This is not to say that you have to go cold turkey and deprive yourself immediately. In fact, going cold turkey may backfire and cause you to binge eat even more. But you can replace your comfort foods with a low fat, low calorie alternative. You also want to make sure that if you find yourself cooped up in the house and you are bored, find something to keep yourself active rather than stuffing your face. This would be a good time to go to the gym, take a walk, go visit a friend or watch a movie.

Keep Track of Habits

It’s equally important to try to keep track of your eating habits. For instance, write them down on a piece of paper, in a journal, or use some computer software to document what you eat, how much you eat, and most importantly the way that you felt that day. In time you will most likely see a connection between particular moods and your love of food. By understanding the connection between your moods and eating habits, you might be able to learn what triggers this kind of eating behavior and learn how to control it on your own will-power. But before you learn the real connection, it’s best to avoid grocery stores and restaurants whenever you are particularly moody or emotional.

PS.

I’m excited to announce my Flow-Led Millionaire Private Client Mastermind Days are back, happening this August (PM me for full deets!) 

Warning! This Mastermind will require you to get TF over your hang-ups around:

* Automated income

* Being seen more, and more boldly

* Adding layers upon layers upon layers of more SELLING

* Ruthless repurposing and re-selling

* Structure, systems, process

* Building a cash machine which pays you on repeat regardless of whether YOU are grinding your fingers to the bone to get it working!

Requirements:

You have an existing business which makes money, delivers a fabulous product or service (or multiple of!) which helps people, you know who you are and who you’re here to serve (while always welcoming deeper clarity!), and you have a proven track record for getting results to those people … even if it’s on a scale, so far, which, frankly, you consider outrageous. Since you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world!

Oh, speaking of which – you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world! And you’re ready to put the wheels on that NOW, and see your revenue – your growth of soulmate audience – your soul-led result-gettin’ systems – and all in all your own badassery – explode, stat!

You’re not afraid of doing the damn work (duh),

but you also know that there’s a simpler way, a more flow way, a more YOU way.

And you’re ready to get down to the nitty gritty of that now, and then roll it out like the take no prisoners mofo you are.

All with me – secret counsel to the worlds most elite game-changers, leaders, and revolutionaries – supporting you to know exactly what to do,

and exactly how to do it,

so you make MORE money,

reach MORE (of the right people),

the YOU way,

having more fun and flow than you ever dreamed possible,

and finally knowing you’re all in on you,

Now!

What you get out of this time together is simple:

* Identified opportunities for money-makin’ – minimum 3, up to 10+ (this is normal in these conversations with me)

* Specific to you simple soulmate audience growth strategy, which you can roll out right away, and will often involve only ‘tweaks’ rather than having to DO anything dramatically extra

* Confidence and inner tools as well as practical steps for improving / adding to / setting up (depending where you’re at) your automated income / funnels 

* Personalised (to your personality / style / lifestyle / skillset) action plan for implementing

* Tweaks you can add in right away to increase sales on existing processes

* Daily / weekly ‘hustle flow plan’ individualised to you

All in all here’s what it comes down to:

>>> You will walk out with a complete action plan tailored to your business, very detailed and also very SIMPLE, with also a complete understanding of what you need to do and HOW to do it, to take you to the next major income level, and beyond.

This will include your next three offers (MINIMUM), up-sells, or funnel ad-ins, FULLY CREATED IN THE TIME TOGETHER!

Plus:

1:1 follow on support to help you implement and follow through.

I love doing this INTENSIVE deep dive work where we pull everything apart all at once, and then nail down the EXACT action steps for each person to take to get more paying customers and clients, who are soul-aligned, coming in NOW, who are also buying more things, because you’ve got all your damn shit in place!

This immersive day together is limited to 5-7 people per event. 

If this is speaking to you PM me here to apply / for more info!
