EPISODE 197: Emotional Processing to Stop Overeating with Client Rachael

REMINDER: The upcoming workshop with Coach Steph Miramontes“Train to Your Brain to Eat Like a Naturally Thin Person” is this Wednesday. It’s not too late to register. You can check it out HERE.

In this episode, we had the pleasure of interviewing two-time client, Rachael, a registered dietician.

 After losing weight using the strategies in 75 Hard, Rachael knew she was barely hanging on by a thread and couldn’t maintain the extreme restriction required that caused her to lose the weight.

 At one point, her husband expressed concern about her dieting behaviors and feeling backed into a corner, Rachael relented and decided to give up dieting altogether.

 As someone who experienced a classic history of yo-yoing with no long-term results to speak of, she decided she’d benefit from the structure and like-minded community offered in the Unstuffed program. 

 In this episode, Rachael opens up and shares the shame she experienced as a dietician who sought help in the very arena she had received a Master’s Degree.

She also shares her first experience in the program and why she later returned for more coaching.

In this week’s episode, Rachael shares:

  • The biggest challenges she throughout the program and how she’s been able to execute the psychological tools she learned to remain consistent in her habits
  • Rachael shares why she decided to try hunger directed eating and how the program helped her identify herself as a struggling perfectionist
  • What holiday and social eating looks like for her now compared to years previous (hint: no more food anxiety, fear of losing control or feeling left out)
  • Rachael’s BEST piece of advice for those who fear they’ll gain weight if they stop calorie counting and focus on weight loss through behavior change

For more conversations on topics like binge eating, emotional eating, and the all-or-nothing mindset, you can check out previously recorded episodes. If there’s a topic you’d like us to cover in an upcoming episode, let us know in the comments below.
