How do i stop comfort eating?
That’s the million dollar question right?
Or should I say we all need to have the million dollar ANSWER
well, after years of helping hundreds of people I’ve come up with the two things that determine whether or not you comfort eat
TIME (or rather your perception of it)
We don’t eat right because ‘we don’t have time to cook/find something ‘healthy’ (that’s a feeling btw)
Or We ‘can’t be bothered’
‘feel low, and anxious’
‘are too tired’
So when we get a grasp on this it’s easier to admit our downfalls
”I comfort eat because I’m depressed / unhappy’’
Is one of the main things
But isn’t it strange how comfort eating makes us feel great momentarily but then
we feel completely awful for a long period after?
crazy that the thing thats destroying us is the thing we consistently choose to do
And that’s because we ALWAYS revert back to SECURITY
Where we feel COMFORTABLE
Because deep down maybe we’re INSECURE and the food maybe helps give us the illusion
that we are in control?
And thats ok, but we have to start REALISING it’s a problem
And when we can admit that, we can seek help
Unless of course you like complaining about how shit you feel,
keep avoiding the mirror and stuffing yourself with sandwiches
and cake then continue to blame it on just ‘not having enough time’
Then I can’t help you
But If you’re tired of your own excuses and understand it’s YOU who has the power to change things
NOT your circumstances or your situation
But YOU yourself
