Who Are You Without Dieting?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How would you feel if food wasn’t such a priority in your life, both physically and emotionally?

Your first reaction may be- Great! I feel free!

But,not so fast…

When you take comfort out of your life, it brings up a lot of emotions and even feelings of loss.

Where is my reward? Where is my comfort? 

The truth is food is not the only reward or comfort you have. It is a skill that needs to be learned.

I will help you get over the hump, change your habits and still get comfort and rewards.

So how do you do this?

 First thing we need to figure out is what else feels good and brings you comfort other than food? 

I will help you today to start changing your mind-frame and habits.

Step 1:  Create a list of activities that you find enjoyable.

These new activities may not feel like they will be enjoyable at the weight you are currently at, but still put it on the list!

Pick 10 activities you think you may get enjoyment from.

It may be knitting, pedicures, walking, golf, ping-pong, going out with friends, painting.

If you are struggling to come up with idea, feel free to reach out here and I can send you a list of hundreds of ideas I give to my clients. Contact me here

Step 2 : Break down the list into two columns

Your first list are activities you would consider doing now and the second list are activities you would do if you were a bit thinner.

I do believe you can do any of them at any weight, but I want you to feel comfortable, so divide the list.

Step 3 : Pick one to start

So you have your list now. Pick one activity that doesn’t feel too daunting and start doing it. Let’s incorporate this into your life. At this point it’s not a replacement for emotional eating, it’s just to start developing new positive habits without food being your only tool.

Step 4: Do it 6 times

It is important to give the activity a fair shot. It’s unrealistic to expect you will do it once and love it.

Give it a fair shot and try it 6 times to see if you get the hang of it and remember do not compare it to the feeling food gives you.

Step 5 : Notice what positive feelings you get and which you may be lacking that food gives you

Now that you have given it a fair shot, notice how you feel about it. Do you get some enjoyment? Do you feel like you accomplished something?

As I mentioned above, do not compare this to the feeling food gives you, they are very different! Our goal is to get you to feel something positive from other things and not just rely on food.

Along with the positive, it’s even more important to notice what you feel you are missing! Notice what you feel still needs emotional or physical nurturing.

You may have picked an active hobby and chances are if you are having a sad day, you will need something on the more soothing side.

Step 6: Now pick one for each emotion

Go back to your list and pick an activity for each emotion. If you are feeling sad you may want a bubble bath! If you are feeling angry you may want to punch a punching bag. Once you have the hang of the first activity, start implementing new ones in your life slowly.

Step 7: Write out what it would feel like to connect to this activity instead of turning to food.

This doesn’t mean you are always going to do it, but lets try it out and see how you feel. Even if you delay turning to food, that is a perfect start!

You are on the path to stop turning to food for comfort and breaking the emotional eating cycle.

How Do You Lose Weight Without Dieting?

If you aren’t going to diet, how are you going to stop emotional eating and lose weight?

After many diets I am sure you have created rules about what you can and can’t eat.

It is important to not look at a book to figure out which foods feel safe and which ones make you want to eat more on. High protein, low carb, calorie counting, low fat and the list goes on…

With all the mixed messages and all the programs you have tried, how do you know which one is for you?

One of the first things I recommend to my clientswhen they come into my office is to create a list of foods that they find work well for them.

I am going to teach you to find the right eating plan for you right now!

 

There is a difference between theyour body mentality and the diet mentality.

 

Step one:

Write out how you view a diet versus nourishing your body

There is a big difference between the two and your perspective is a big part of what is going to help you be successful.

If you are struggling to see the difference, I would be happy to have a free chat with you to brain storm how you view the two. Feel free to contact me here

Step 2

 Create a list of foods you find nourishing for your body that make you feel good

 These are the foods that you should try to consume 80% of the time.

They tend to usually include lots of veggies and fruits, lean proteins and complex carbs.

Notice what foods you find nourishing that makes your body feel healthy and content.

         

Now for the fun part that is probably new to you.

Lets looks at foods that are less nourishing that taste really yummy.

Step 3

Create a list of foods that you find high risk

These are foods that you find hard to have in the house. You know the ones that take over your mind and you can’t stop thinking about? You eat really quickly and need to ensure you finish it so it won’t be in your home anymore.

What is on your list? Is it chocolate? Ice cream? Chips? Be more specific!

What type of ice-cream or chocolate?

 

Step 4

Create a list of low risk yummy foods

These are food that may not be fueling your body, but are quite yummy and you find manageable.         

These are the food that you want to still enjoy at times without guilt.

Some examples may be:

Air pop popcorn with butter and salt, dark chocolate, gelato, grilled cheese, pizza. For some people it may include chips and/or ice-cream.

Step 5

Ensure you are having the nourishing foods 80% of the time and the low risk yummy foods 20% of the time.

If you have a car it’s probably not often you fuel it with diesel. It will destroy your car over time. You may fill it up with regular which does the job, but premium gas will make it run as smooth as smooth can be.

It's not realistic to put premium in all the time, but over time we know the more you put this gas in your car, the better it will run.

So why am I talking about gas in your car? This is the same thing as how we fuel your body. This is less about diet and more about nourishing your body.

If you can nourish your body with wholefoods most of the time, it will feel really great and run smoothly. This does not mean you are going to always eat this way, but if you can focus on nourishing your body 80% of the time then you can put less nourishing foods in the rest of the time.

 We are all different and have different foods that we struggle with. Start creating your list and pay attention to what works for you and what doesn’t.

How To Stop Eating Your Feelings

When was the last time you were angry or frustrated with somebody you love?  It happens to most of us all the time. The more important question is how do you handle it?

Their is a big difference with people who communicate effectively and people who struggle with communication.  If you comfort yourself with food after a yelling match or suppress your feelings with food right away, you are probably an emotionally eater.

I’ll teach you to communicate in a non-confrontational way and avoid using food to manage

 Take a look at this example:

You prepared dinner for your husband and he comes home an hour late.  It annoys you because you worked hard to prepare it and he didn’t bother to even let you know he would be late. You’re worked up and turn to your comforts of food.

As soon as he walks through the door, you say, “I can’t believe you are so late! I made dinner for you and you couldn’t even bother to come home on time!” He immediately responds with, “I can’t believe that you are yelling at me! I have had a long day and I don’t want to hear this from you right now!” He then storms out of the room.

In this example, you, the wife, are communicating aggressively and ineffectively, perpetuating an angry and defensive response from him. You are also sitting with the stress and anger and probably are turning to an easy comfort… food.

Now consider this…How you can sit with your feelings and then communicate more effectively in a way that doesn’t cause him to become so defensive and you to get more angry?

 

This is how you can communicate your feelings in a positive way without turning to food.

He’s late, notice you are getting worked up. You try to call him and he doesn’t answer. Take 10 deep breaths.  Instead of going for food, consider writing him a note saying you stepped out and will be back or going upstairs and taking a hot bath.

He arrives home an hour late.  When he walks in you say, “Hi, I have to tell you when you come home late, it upsets me because I spend a long time preparing dinner and I need you to let me know when you are going to be late so I don’t sit around and wait for you.” He responds by saying “I’m sorry that I’m late honey. Next time, I will let you know when I’m running late.”

In this example, you have taken a simplistic and much more effective approach. You have calmly explained to him why you were angry and how he can avoid upsetting you in the future. Given the way you approached the situation, he understood and responded with an apology as opposed to reacting defensively and aggressively. 

To implement the approach, you just need to follow three simple steps, which can be referred to as the WIN formula:

1.     When you did this:

The first step is to identify the “when”; you must explain the timing of the situation and the facts. Instead of yelling at the person that you are upset with, you should calmly explain to him or her when it is that you became upset and the facts surrounding the situation.  This will demonstrate that you are willing to resolve the problem as opposed to merely looking for a fight.

2.  I felt this:

The second step is to express how the person’s actions made you feel. By approaching the situation in a positive and pleasant manner, as opposed to yelling at the person, he or she is more likely to listen to what you have to say rather than blocking it out.  This will surely yield a more desirable result.

3. Need you to do this: 

The third and final step is to express to the other party what you need from them in the future to ensure that this type of a situation is not replicated.  This is the preventative aspect of the formula. 

Learning how to effectively communicate can be quite easy. Applying the WIN formula will allow you to express your feelings in a more meaningful way and will undoubtedly produce better results.  Ultimately, your relationships with your friends, family members and significant others will prove to be stronger and less strained if you commit to following the WIN formula. 

The benefit of communicating is to build a healthy relationship, but the main goal is that you don’t turn to food to suppress your feelings. This tool is one of the most effective ways to communicate. Start putting it into place and feel free to reach out if you need any further support.

Are You Ready To Stop Emotional Eating and Lose Weight?

You know that feeling when you feel disgusted with yourself for eating too much ? You tell yourself “This Monday will be different! I am going to stick to a new diet?”

So how do you know if you’re ready to start making permanent change?

What is the difference between this Monday and the 10 other times you have started a new diet again?

Is it different because you’re so ashamed of yourself that you’re motivation is the reason it will work this time?

Well, I am going to tell you that self-hatred does NOT get you to your goals of losing weight!

I am going to teach you how to make this the last time you start a new diet!

So lets get cracking.

Here are 5 questions to answer to figure out if you are ready to lose weight ….

1. Why do you want to lose weight?

Write out your reasons; make sure they are not just superficial. By this I mean if your goal is to fit into a certain pair of pants and that is your main motivation- that is not a good enough reason.

Sure that can be one of the goals! But deeper goals are the ones that are in your heart. Here are some examples.

 

·      My health is suffering.

·      I want to get off certain medications.

·      I want to teach my kids good habits.

·      To stop myself up emotionally with food.

 

Journal all your feelings and highlight your top 3-5 reasons that are truly motivating

2. How much do you want to lose?

It is important to have goals, but have realistic goals. So pick 5 benchmarks to focus on. Write out what you believe it will feel like every time you hit a benchmark.


So, let’s say you weigh 240lbs. Your first benchmark may be to lose 10 pounds.

What would losing 10lbs do for you? What would if feel like to reach that first benchmark? How will that get you closer to the motivations you created?

This will help keep you feeling accomplished and on track.

 

3. Write out what food offers you

Many client come in my office and tell me they do not get much from food. When you dig deeper you will recognize you get something positive out of eating. What does food offer you?

For example:

·      It t may soothe you

·      It could distract you from deeper emotions

·      It may be your reward at the end of the day

 

These are just a few, think of 5 things that food offers you!

 

4. How is your self-care?

Everyone has a different view of what self-care is. So I will ask you some more specific questions…

·      Do you get enough sleep at night?

·      Do you have some time for yourself daily ?

·      Do you get time with your friends?

·      Do you share household responsibilities?

 

Be honest with yourself.  I understand you are busy and self-care sometimes becomes lower on the priority list, but without self-care it is very hard to reach your goals.

This also may be something you need to learn.  Most of my clients are hardworking people that don’t have time to self-care. If this sounds like you, it's going have to become a priority for you.

5. What are your eating patterns and habits now?

You may have a hard time answering this. Over the next 7 days write down the patterns you recognize. The more aware you are of them, the easier it is to change them.

So, are ready to start making changes and lose the weight?

These questions are the first step to helping you start to make changes and get off the diet rollercoaster.

Let’s start making permanent changes!

6 Ways To Feel Attractive As An Overweight Woman

 

Everywhere you turn you are bound to find a thinner woman. You know those women who are a size 2 and look as though they stepped out of a catalog? Well, I am sure that doesn’t make you feel very attractive.

As you work on your goals of managing your emotional eating, it is important to still like yourself. When I was at my highest weight I could only shop at plus size stores. I dreaded having to get a new outfit. I wanted to hide and felt very unattractive. (read my story here)

I would go home after shopping and cry. I wanted to go into a store like Artizia and fit into a trendy outfit.

I learned that in order to lose weight and reach my goals, I had like the way I looked. I knew I didn’t love every part of me, but I had to become friends with myself and stop being my worst enemy.

 

So I started making changes.

I decided that through this process of overcoming my emotional eating I would fill my toolbox with helpful tools to start feeling more attractive.

Here is what I did to feel more attractive as an overweight woman

 

1. Start writing it down

I found this very hard and struggled with this exercise. I wrote down the emotional attributes quite easily, but then I got to my physical attributes.

I remember, I was only able to write down two physical attributes I liked: my eyes and my nose. So I tried a bit harder and I looked closer.

2. Grab a mirror and take a closer look

I grabbed a mirror, the more I looked at myself the more I found things I kind-of liked. I realized, I liked my feet, my ears, and my skin complexion. Soon I had a list of 10 parts of body I liked.

3. Notice the negative things you say.

If you are speaking meanly to yourself, you are not going to feel very attractive. Start noticing what you say and any names you call yourself. Write down the first 10 negative things you say to yourself.

4. Turn the negative into positive

Beside each negative statement write a positive one about yourself .

Here is an example that may help

 “I am fat!”  Cross that off. You can switch it to “I have beautiful features. I like my eyes and I am working on the parts I want to improve.”

5 .Take a true friend shopping with you

My friend Janet was excited to go shopping with me. I never felt judged by her. She loved shopping and picked things out for me. She was excited and complemented me when I came out of the change room. I started to see that things did look pretty on me.

Pick one person that accepts your size and makes you feel attractive. Take that person shopping with you.

6. Surround yourself with less judgmental people

Your gut tells you when people are judging you, even without them having to saying anything. Follow your gut. If you feel better around some people then others, spend more time in their presence as you work through this.

 

Remember, Your weight does not make you unattractive, your mind-frame does. Start taking these steps to feel more attractive at whatever size you are.

5 Ways to Boost Your Self Esteem

They say the truth will set you free, so here it is....

I have low self-esteem. I lack confidence in quite a few areas in my life. So I work on it regularly.

 

Do you ever have those days when you feel like everyone is prettier or smarter than you?

 

 The thing is it’s not just you who struggles with this: statistics show that 95% of people lack self-esteem.

This doesn’t just mean that somebody doesn’t like the way they look. It could be that they lack confidence in speaking their mind and end up keeping their mouth shut. Other people put on a “know-it-all act” to cover up their feelings.

How does this relate to emotional eating?

I am glad you asked. When you have low self-esteem you start beating yourself up and then food tends to become a soother.

This voice will just keep building and beating you down until you numb yourself with food. Then you spend your energy focusing on food being the bigger issue. The cycle then continues.

 

So let’s focus on how to manage this cycle.

 

Whatever areas you feel you need to work on, here are 5 steps to start making changes and stop beating yourself up.

 

1.    Make a list.

List the things that make you feel good about yourself. Is it going to the gym? Hanging out with specific people? Getting a job done?

 

2.    Note what makes you feel inadequate.

This is definitely not a fun one, but we all have things that bring our confidence down. Do you feel overweight? Do you feel that you’re not good at a part of your job, like making presentations? Do you feel that you lack education? Debating skills? Whatever it is, it’s in your head already, so you might as well write it down, and then you can start taking baby steps to change it.

 

3.    Start being nice to yourself!

Stop beating yourself up. If you do not speak nicely to yourself or treat yourself well, nobody else will either. I bet you wouldn’t let anyone else speak to you that way , so don’t be mean to yourself.

 

I always recommend carrying a picture of yourself as a child and asking yourself “Would I speak to her like that?”

 

4.    Notice the negative statements you say to yourself.

We all have a voice in our head. Start noticing what you are saying to yourself and write it down. Would you let somebody else speak to you like that?

 

5.    Break it down into manageable steps.

If your goal is to become a better public speaker, do not start agreeing to do presentations. The first step would be to research classes or courses that can help you learn how to make better presentations. If it's getting fit, it may be best not to join a gym right away, but to see how you can incorporate activity into your schedule. Maybe you can walk to the grocery store when you only have a few things to buy. Or maybe you can take the stairs in your office.

 

Start taking care of yourself emotionally and it's a great step towards managing your emotional eating.

How To Stop Obsessing About Food

As I was growing up, I was always obsessed with trying to lose weight.

I was a chubby child and I tried every diet on the market, but I could never stop my brain from thinking about food.  

I wanted to be free, and yet, after years of dieting, I was up 70 lbs. How was this possible? It was my brain that couldn’t get out of the diet mentality. So I decided to look deeper. I realized that I wanted to nourish myself with nourishing food and lose the weight. But more importantly, stop my mind from dieting. 

So here are the steps I took to lose over 70 lbs. (and that many of my clients have taken too!),  to break free from the dieting frame of mind, and start nourish my body. 

Here are the ways to help you stop dieting and obsessing about food.

 

I have heard time and time again the plan to start a new diet on Monday morning and that this time it will be different. 

 

 So how can you make this Monday different?

 

Here is the key…. When we you start a health plan, I want you want to think of it as a lifestyle change as opposed to a diet (and not just convince yourself it’s a lifestyle plan). This is because dieting fails 95% of the time . [1]. But how do we get your brain to go along with our plan in order to have a 95 % success rate? We need to change the way we look at food.   

 

Here is the step-by-step approach to stop your mind from dieiting and emotionally eating.

Step 1

Acknowledge when you are thinking about food—say out loud (if you can), “I’m thinking about food and what ‘I should not eat." Don’t try to distract yourself, or you’ll just make your mind race even more. This step will help you realize how much you’re actually thinking about food.

Step 2

Take 5 deep breaths (and I mean deep full tummy breaths) and see if you can feel any emotion in your body. Put your hands on your stomach and take a breath through your nose. Start off inhaling for a count of three and then exhale for a count of three. You can work your counting breath up to 7 seconds. This will slow your mind and your heartbeat. It will also help you become more grounded.

Step 3

Now that you’ve slowed down a bit, you can start getting in touch with what is really driving you to eat.  Try to write out what you’re feeling, i.e. sad, happy, scared, bored, frustrated. You can pick one emotion to try to start noticing and build on that.  In order to stop the thought cycle, you need to visit the underlying feeling.

So start identifying which emotion is driving you to want food. Even though this process sounds easy, it can be harder to recognize than you think, especially if you’ve spent years pushing these emotions down.

This is why the breathing is so important, it helps you get in tune with your body.

Step 4

It’s time to release some of these emotions. 

This is important to break the cycle of holding on to the emotion, turning to food to soothe yourself, and beating yourself up for repeating this pattern.  

On a subconscious level, we perform this pattern as a way to distract ourselves from what’s going on underneath the distraction.

 Start by calling a friend and expressing how you feel or journal out your feelings and say it out loud. You can also work with a therapist who specializes in emotional eating to help you start learning to release these emotions.

Step 5

Now that you’ve figured out which emotions cause you to want food and you’ve released them, you can start learning new soothing techniques.  Try to build your “tool box” with new soothing techniques.

If you’re struggling, a great book my clients work with is 50 Ways to Soothe Yourself Without Food by Susan Albers.

 

With all the energy you put into dieting and the vicious mind cycle, you can spend that energy changing your frame of mind and finally being free from your dieting brain.

How To Manage Emotional Eating

“I will just start a new diet on Monday”…. Famous words by the average dieter.  What if I tell you it’s not about starting a new diet on Monday or willpower? It’s about figuring out in the moment what is driving you to eat. If starting that new diet on Monday sounds familiar to you, it may be a skill you need to learn.

I am going to teach you how to manage your emotions without using food

When is the last time you fit into your jeans that are sitting in the back of your closet?

 I am sure you have tried many times through diets to lose the weight and have the jeans as a motivator. Or, that feeling of seeing an old friend with that feeling in the pit of your stomach as you sit there and remember that the last time they saw you , you were 20 lbs lighter. Instead of beating yourself up, I want you to pause for a moment and think about this…

 

You haven’t failed weight loss because of willpower, there is much more to it.

 

Below are the steps to start getting in touch with your emotions and learn to stop turning to food for comfort. When you learn this skill you will be able to start losing the weight.

1)    Pause for 10 seconds

Before you turn to food take a moment and notice what made you want to eat it Was it sadness? Boredom? Anger? Happiness?  You may not even know what drove you to eat at this point. That’s okay, we will get there. If you aren’t sure we can use your logic. Notice what you were doing right before you wanted to eat.

2)    Write it out for one week

Write what you notice for a week. Just one week. This isn’t a diet journal, it’s a journal to start noticing your patterns. You can start pretending you're Sherlock Holmes for a week. Write out any feelings or emotions that you became aware of.

3)    Feel it for a week.

Forget about the food for a few minutes and try to notice this emotion in your body that came up. When you have established which emotion was affecting you the most, sit with it and just notice what it feels like in your body. 

4)    Create a self-care list

Create a list of your favorite activities or hobbies , if you can’t think of many feel free to email me  and I would be happy to send you a list of different ideas that have worked really well for my clients.

5)    Put it into action

Now you have all the steps. Let’s put it into action. Try to pause before you turn to food, feel the feeling for 10 seconds and pick something on your hobby list to do instead. If you are still hungry for whatever it was you wanted in an hour then go for it!

I hope you’ve found this helpful. I’d love to hear your feedback and your stories. You can email me anytime!
