New Free Presentation – Why We Can’t Control Emotional Eating
2: Getting more willpower
We only have so much willpower in a day and when people try to “get more willpower,” they’re setting themselves up for failure. It can work for short periods of time, but typically we’ll “fall off the wagon” after a few weeks and lose the ability to resist, kick starting another cycle of emotional eating. If more willpower was the right strategy, it would have worked a long time ago.
3: Fighting food (or trying to control yourself)
It’s incredibly stressful on the body to try to control or suppress ourselves around food. Fighting food can actually lock us into a stress chemistry that leads to a binge. That’s why those of us who try to “control ourselves” and fight food on a daily basis might do okay for a short period of time, but we’ll inevitably fall into a binge and go right back to square one.
If you can relate to any of these three examples, then you know what it’s like to be caught up in the cycle of emotional eating and not feel like yourself.
With so many different ways of addressing emotional eating that don’t seem to work, how do you take control of your relationship with food?
Well, instead of giving you the same advice about emotional eating that you’ve heard over and over, I want to go deeper into the science behind why we can’t “get control.” I want to help you understand what’s going on inside your body that’s causing this cycle of emotional eating to continue.
That’s why I’m doing this special presentation on the hidden metabolic reasons why we can’t control our emotional eating.
You’ll learn about some important details, including information on:
- The impact of stress chemistry on appetite and calorie burning capacity
- The mindset shift you can use to stop fighting food – without having to rely on willpower
- The metabolically driven reasons we emotionally overeat
I’d love for you to tune in, and if you’re struggling with emotional eating right now, I know this simple presentation can make a big difference. Here’s all the details on how to reserve your spot and join me next week:
