2 mindset shifts to overcome challenges with food [Video Session Series]

2 mindset shifts to overcome challenges with food

Last week, I hopped on a Instagram live with my great mate and buddying Coach, Jess Silsby. Since we love to chat about all things women and food, we thought we’d hit record and for the first of a series of conversations.

First up, we're covering 2 mindset shifts to overcome challenges with food.

Jess and I have trodden similar paths of restrictive diets in our early 20’s, then later moved to more sophisticated, sneaky diets like detoxes, cleanses and sugar quitting.

In this video we chat about how to be ‘normal’ around food again and letting go of the dieting mind.

Watch the video below to hear us chat about; 

  • why food challenges are a symptom, not the problem and
  • why you can’t ‘fail’ with food.

Video Summary: 

1. Food challenges are a symptom:

  • Different food challenges we can experience; emotional eating, binge eating, preoccupation with food, food stress, guilt.

  • Reframing these challenges as a symptom, not the problem and why this is the simplest way to begin to feel freedom and trust around food again. 

  • Why our food stuff is rarely even about food itself.

2. You can’t fail with food:

  • Why food rules, and labelling foods "good" and "bad" will just keep you stuck for longer. 
  • Why “being bad” with food is rarely a willpower problem.

  • How you can drop unhelpful personal judgments and see your 'failures' as an opportunity for personal growth and feedback.
