Do these statements sound familiar?
You find yourself saying things like "argh, I've blown it again, I'll eat healthy again tomorrow!"
Your eating habits can range from supermodel yoga enthusiast to hungry, unsupervised child in a candy store.
You sometimes find yourself rummaging the fridge after dinner to eat last week's leftover apple pie. “What the hell, I’m not even hungry?!”
And… this loop sounds really familiar: overeat → feel terrible → get all judgy on yourself → repeat.
You’re smart, savvy, and health-conscious, yet you're constantly falling off the wagon!
“I know this cycle, because I use to think about food in this way too.’’
I would eat healthy through the day, then at night, I’d binge.
I would fall into a spiral of “well there’s no point stopping now!” and go into autopilot-numbing mode, then later feel painfully guilty about all the hard work I had “undone”.
I spent SO much of my life restricting food, planning secret binges, regretting those binges, dieting, and obsessing about food and my body.
My eating patterns look NOTHING like this anymore, because I’ve learned mindset, skills and practices to building trust in my body…
What if it didn't have to be that way for you either?
You’ve shifted to a kinder, more “normal” way of eating. You’re able to listen to what your body needs and respond in a way that feels really good.
You’re able to say “as good as I know that pizza tastes, it’s just not appealing to me right now. I’m not hungry”.
You’re able to buy your favourite chocolate, forget about it and let it hang around in your fridge for a week. When you feel like something sweet, you calmly eat a few squares and then wrap it up for later. It’s no big deal.
Because you know what you should be doing...
You already know you need to eat healthy, stop overeating, manage cravings, and stay motivated.
the tough part's actually doing it.
So.. what’s the disconnect?
I promise you it’s not because you don't have enough “willpower” or you need to learn more about "wellness".
It’s more likely that there’s something else going on. That the diet-binge cycle you’ve been battling for so long is a natural symptom of something else… and not the problem itself.
