Today I'm sharing 3 strategies to stop emotional eating that you can easily start right now!
The Sun magazine interviewed me about the mental health disorder, binge eating. They asked for just three tips to end the overeating cycle and here they are:
1. Connect With Your Emotions:
This will help you to unpick what’s driving the behaviour. When you have a binge episode, write down everything you felt before that binge so you can start to process and reframe what’s coming up for you.
2. Write A Feel Good List:
Low self-esteem can lead to comfort eating to feel better, so write down a list of 20 things that make you great. Then print the list and check in with it every day.
3. Stop Beating Yourself Up
When you have a terrible internal dialogue and tell yourself how awful you are, the mind is hardwired to move you away from pain towards pleasure. And what gives instant pleasure? Food! So, stop beating yourself and begin treating yourself the same way you’d treat your best friend.
Look, I know the shame and self-loathing that comes with emotional binge eating. I struggled with it for YEARS before I found my way to food freedom.
