Emotional Eats Podcast


Apr 29, 2024

Are you an educated, motivated woman who blames yourself for constantly overeating, whether it's late at night, grabbing snacks at work, or indulging in sugary treats? 

 

In this episode. I explain that the reasons you think you overeat - like sugar addiction, lack of willpower, or an inability to stick to a diet - are often not the true, deeper reasons.

 

The real reasons behind overeating are often more complex, involving stress, hormone imbalances, boredom, and other lifestyle factors. I dig into how factors like overwhelming stress, hormonal changes, and even procrastination can drive us to seek comfort in food. 

 

I share that beating yourself up over "failing" at diets or having no willpower is counterproductive - the solution lies in understanding the deeper reasons behind your behaviors.

 

I outline one approach of thoroughly examining a client's entire daily routine to identify areas for improvement, whether it's lacking nourishing meals, not getting enough rest, or needing more social connection. 

 

By addressing the root causes, you can develop sustainable habits that steer you away from overeating and toward a healthier, more balanced relationship with food.
