Holiday Survival Guide

Surviving the holidays can be tough. Thriving in the holiday nearly impossible for some.

Perhaps the holiday period is causing you more anxiety than pleasure. The anticipation of seeing certain family members might be causing you to be in an emotional eating rollercoaster.

Perhaps the business of it all drives you to completely forget about yourself and by the time you get to Christmas, you’re completely exhausted and completely lost control on any healthy habits you might have in place just a few weeks before.

The Beyond The Food Holiday Survival guide will move you from self-destructing eating habits during the holiday to thriving and loving the holidays altogether!

and Yes, it’s possible…

As with anything we teach here, a few tweaks in your mindset and how you approach certain situation or event will be needed to move from shriveling at the idea to anticipating the holiday with excitement.

In this episode I discuss

  • The #1 cause of emotional eating loop
  • My personal advice on how you engage with food and weight during the holidays
  • How to deal with negative family members 

Last episode, I shared why smart women don’t diet and what they do instead. I know exactly based on my personal experience… after 27 years of dieting, I’m clear on one thing… diets don’t work. We think that a “thin” body is going to unlock our happiness, our acceptance, our joy. 

The stats are clear… 

91% of all women are unhappy about their body and resort to dieting. 

And 95% of all dieters regain their all weight within 1-5 years.

Yet we keep dieting. We keep hating our body. We keep judging ourselves for our inability to be in freaking control… yet neuroscience is clear: WILLPOWER is a limited resource.

Still dieting? You gotta listen to this, smart woman! Click here.
