Have you ever bought cookies you’ve been craving, consumed the entire box, and then taken out the trash before your partner returns home?
Or maybe you’ve ordered a salad while dining out with friends, but stopped to pick up a cheeseburger and fries on your way home so you can enjoy the food without feeling judged?
Yeah, me too. Join co-coach, Laura Kalirai, on this week’s episode of the Fat Murder Podcast as we discuss why dieters like to eat alone and how the foods you eat in secrecy are never carrots and celery sticks. Other topics:
- Why you’ve attached moral judgment to these processed foods, you feel guilt and shame — which, ironically, as an emotional eater, only causes you to eat MORE.
- How removing the “bad” label will help you become more consistent in your success
- Why you may feel compelled to hide how you eat and how this perpetuates the cycle of overeating
- How hiding what you eat from other people is sending yourself the message that who you are cannot be valued
What about you? Do you have a history of secret eating? How did you break the cycle? I’d love to hear your story. Connect with Leslie:
