EPISODE 173: How Novelty Leads to Overeating

With Halloween upon us, the Sugar Express is rolling full steam ahead!

This is the time of year when cravings reach critical mass, new diabolical scientific concoctions hit the streets, and candy bowls across the land always seem to be filled to the brim. 

Unfortunately, this holiday also brings about unnecessary stress, self-judgement and uncontrolled eating – truly scary stuff! Join co-coach Steph Miramontes, and me as we pull back the curtain on the same old tired trick that spooks us every year so that you can learn to enjoy the holiday without the guilt and shame.

Topics discussed:

  • Why you feel guilty for eating processed foods — who taught you how to feel this way and why is it important?
  • How eating them with intention will help you remove these hyperpalatable foods from their pedestal and take control of your food obsession
  • Why it’s imperative to your weight loss success to remove the “good” and “bad” food labels and embrace these foods without judgment
  • The magic of awareness and practice when it comes to tackling the foods you fear

This year, let’s approach the holiday season with a different mindset. To dig more into the psychological aspect of eating, check out episode 165.
