Are you struggling to achieve a healthy body weight?
Does every diet you try end up an epic failure?
If you’ve had eating problems for a long time and it feels like you only have to think about food to put on weight, consider a different approach to achieve your ideal body. Let me explain…
There’s no denying that food is delicious. We all have our favorite foods and some have the potential to be addictive. Chocolate is only one example!
Most of the time, when we’re happy and life is going well, we eat sensibly to provide us with the energy we need throughout the day. When we’re not feeling too great, food can easily become a comforter. In this case, we eat to make us feel better.
This emotional attachment with food can prove to be unhealthy over time – especially if your food of choice is calorie and chemical-laden junk food. The unhappier you are, the more food you eat. Not only do you put on weight, you can also become quite ill and put yourself at risk of disease.
Most people attempt to diet when they realize they’ve over-indulged or are feeling unhealthy, but here’s the truth… NO diet will work unless you first heal your emotional relationship with food.
Eating food for comfort is just like smoking or any other addictive habit. The only way to stop and create a healthy eating plan is to treat the root cause. Find out why you’re eating to feel better, and then do the “inside work” to change how you feel.
If you’ve simply fallen into bad habits where food is concerned, focus on breaking the habitual pattern. Once you do this, you’ll find that you don’t need to undertake any fad diet or extreme eating plan to achieve your ideal weight because your healthier eating plan will put you on the right track!
So, if you’re struggling with your weight, consider whether you have an emotional attachment with food and then take steps to change how you feel.
Not only will you achieve a healthy body, but you’ll also achieve a healthier state of mind.
