Research shows that “normal eaters” think about food 10-15% of the time throughout the day, but dieters often think about food for up to 70% of their day. That’s a lot of wasted time.
Constantly thinking about food, dieting, and body image can make it feel like you have an addiction. However, it’s normal to think about food when feeling deprived. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, right?
One of the most unfortunate truths of dieting is how it robs you of being in the present. Food is no longer a pleasurable experience, but rather an anxiety-inducing situation riddled with guilt and shame.
And that is exactly why I created my online group coaching program, Unstuffed — to help you break-free from the shackles of restrictive dieting and develop the psychological tools to lose weight while enjoying all of your favorite foods — without the drama.
In this week’s Fat Murder Podcast episode with co-coach, Eileen Trujillo, we’re going to help you get started.
- I can’t stop eating sweets once I’ve started
- I’ll just have a couple of bites of this and do more cardio tomorrow (it’s never just a couple of bites, is it?)
- I’ll start over again on Monday
- How many calories will that cookie put me over my daily limit?
