Making Peace with Food

Make peace with food.

Stop the food fight… it’s just food!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

That’s what my coach told me a few years back…

Yes, even professional hire coaches. When I want to learn something new I go to a professional who is an expert at what I want to learn and I get coached. Being coach fast track learning and make sure you learn the right way.⠀⠀

When I hired my coach I was in a state of anxiety and suffering because I couldn’t stop thinking about croissant (yes I’m french 🇫🇷) and overeating nuts.

What was wrong with me? – I asked her⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My coach solution was simple: Make peace with food. Call a truce. Stop the war. Stop fighting. Just eat the dam donut!

If that you too: You’re not alone sister! There are me and many others as I get emails from women challenged with the exact same thoughts and suffering too frequently.⠀

You have permission to just eat the donut

Has she gave me permission to make peace with food I felt a sense of relief wash over me but next I also started to feel scared.

If I eat ____ ( in my case it was carbs) I’ll gain weight. I wasn’t buying it so I went to science because after all, that’s my background.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Neuroscience has studied overeating & binge behaviors and the #1 cause of these behaviors is RESTRICTION. Deprivation leads to intense feelings that build to uncontrollable cravings and overeating and often binges. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Shit, she’s right! I’ve got to make peace with food.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
