Your struggle with emotional eating may go something like this…
If I could just find the right way to eat I won’t have cravings.
If I could just gain some more willpower I would be stronger and I could resist my urges.
If I could just detox from addictive/sugary foods I would be free.
If I could just stick with something long enough for it to take.
If I could just get to the bottom of why I struggle with emotional eating and don’t stay on my diet I wouldn’t have a food problem.
What’s so wrong with this way of thinking?
These all seem like reasonable thoughts, if you’re starting from a diet mentality where the focus is on the food.
But, when we’re working on healing emotional eating from the viewpoint of Conscious Eating, it’s a whole other world out there. Fortunately, it’s a truly helpful, growth oriented and healing relationship with yourself, food and your body.
