Hi Friends,

Hope you are well.

This post is a snapshot of what I work on with my clients within the first 4 sessions or so.

One of the biggest concerns people have is feeling out of control with their food. Regardless of objectively binging or not, it can feel scary to not know where are edges are with eating.

I would even say 95ish% of people who work with me believe they are emotional eaters.

They come to me because they are tired of not liking their bodies, tired of not being able to stay on a diet and just…tired.

Tired of coming home and eating on the couch at night and feeling like they can’t stop.

Of not feeling good in their body.

But we tend to be in amnesia about something when it comes to the idea of emotional eating.

How many of you can see where in your day with food where you are depriving yourself?

You may be depriving yourself of enough to eat, even when you have enough. Or where you want something and don’t let yourself have it.

Or when you do it’s in “moderation” but you aren’t satisfied.

And certainly depriving yourself of attunement and instead judge yourself and your eating.

What if you could let yourself not be in denial that the very thing you are trying to do to fix the feelings of out of control around food and body are actually causing more emotion to bubble up and keep the cycle going.

And also see that it’s not your fault.

You see, it’s natural for the body to rebel against not getting it’s needs met. It’s natural to feel sad or mad when we feel we don’t have the “right” bodies to be seen getting satisfied.

Here’s what I purpose to get out of this deprivation eating cycle:
1) See that dieting is a set-up and not designed for you to successful. It’s designed to keep you trapped and blaming yourself.

2). Learn to be compassionate and kind to the amazing body you have, even if you don’t like it right now.

3). If you want to learn some specific steps about how to more easily and quickly do 1 and 2 above, check out this free training that people who have freedom from emotional eating find helpful here: http://bit.ly/2IfVZp2bodypeace 

I am so glad you all are here. I know that every time you take the time to read, watch and take action on this information, the free gifts and trainings here and even when working with me personally, you are 100% creating a ripple of sanity, presence, care and true humility out in the world.

Making peace with your food and body is brave work. It’s not fast or always easy. But what I’ve found being on the other side is the pain of pride hiding my lack of self-worth that I tried to get through diet behaviors would have been a life not lived. And I certainly wouldn’t know who I really am.

I deeply want your becoming. It’s worth the work.

Peaceful eating and much care,
