Listener Q&A Vol.2 Eating Past Fullness & Confidence at Work
We are diving into two more questions from our listeners.
Why do I keep eating past fullness?
A very common question that comes up in the non-diet coaching space is, “Why do I keep eating past fullness?” The reason this question is so common is because of the perpetual message coming from diet culture that all bodies are meant to be thin, and one of the ways to be thin is to control the amount of food we consume.
Moreover, if you are still immersed in diet culture or new to undieting your life, then it’s normal that your brain reacts to eating past fullness. It’s likely that you respond to the sensation of fullness with self-judgemental thoughts such as, “I’m a failure,” “I’m so bad for eating past fullness,” or “I’m going to gain so much weight.”
For years, your brain was conditioned to believe that fullness was something you should avoid. It was a sign of “self-control.” When this conditioning goes unchecked, your reaction to the sensation of fullness will most likely continue to result in a desire to restrict your food intake.
In fact, nothing has gone wrong. The key to creating a different outcome isn’t a matter of taking different actions. Instead, it’s a matter of committing to mindset work.
Mindset work is the foundation of eating normally.
Is there a link between confidence at work & body image?
The answer to the question, “Is there a link between confidence at work and body image?” is an easy one. HELL YES!
We cannot hate a part of ourselves and be confident externally in the world. In fact, if we seek confidence outside of body image, we’ll end up overcompensating for the lack of confidence in our bodies. It’s often why women overwork in the corporate world, trying to prove their worth.
The more women who are liberated from diet culture and on a journey of self-acceptance, the more women who claim promotions, more money and achieve their career goals.
