Podcast | 021 - Ending Emotional Eating

Mar 19, 2019

 Emotional eating is something that every single person has experienced (or battled, more specifically) at least once in their life.  This topic is something that I get asked a lot of questions about, in fact it's probably the BIGGEST topic that people ask me about.

Everyone wants to know how they can stop emotional eating and have more control over their relationship with food.  This episode of Own Your Journey answers the biggest questions about emotional eating.

After listening to this episode of Own Your Journey, you will understand the reason why we turn to food in emotionally taxing situations, which emotions can drive us to reach for food, and how you can stop emotional eating for good.  Yep, that's right, you CAN end your battle with emotional eating, and you'll learn exactly how to in this episode.

The down and dirty version answer to your fight with emotional eating is to slow down and get super present.   But there are many more steps to this process that you need to know in order to most effectively end your emotional eating patterns.

If you are someone who struggles with emotional eating, do NOT feel guilty or ashamed of it.  You are not alone, and there is a very clear explanation as to why you're doing what you're doing.  The worst thing you can do when you engage in emotional eating is to feel guilty and to shame yourself - that's just fueling the cycle.

What you need to do instead is get super clear on what's going on inside your body emotionally, mentally, and physically.  Every emotional eating occurrence is an opportunity for you to learn, heal, and grow.  Instead of trying to numb out with food, use that opportunity to heal your pain right there in real time!

The tools that you will learn in this episode will help you understand how you can use the power of presence and the power of choice to come back into your body and choose differently.  It doesn't have to be a struggle.  It GETS to be easy!  But you must decide that it will be easy for you.

Learn how to end your emotional eating behaviors and binge eating behaviors with the process I explain in episode 021 - Ending Emotional Eating.
