Beat Emotional Holiday Eating

Do the holidays push your eating button and make you wanna gorge? You're not alone. Because of diets, we use food as a reward, a consolation, a weapon, an obsession and even a place to hide. 
Don't let it happen this year!

Media urges us to gratify every craving, without gaining weight.  Media blows life out of proportion and we become addicted to the myths it creates. 
Get help before being sabotaged by holiday eating by tuning-in to your intuition .

 Holidays are coming. Why not learn to connect with your body now so you can enjoy the parties?
The point of holidays is to celebrate living.  
It's intuitive to celebrate life!

Our senses provide physical cues  24/7. These cues are for protection. What you sense connects with your heart, your mind and your body. Protecting yourself is intuitive.

The reason why diets don't work is because your intuition is more powerful than any diet.

Diets demand rigid eating. Life is unpredictable and healthy eating is flexible. Instead of rules, use intuitive tools like curiosity and self-respect to stay aware of messages from your body.  Trusting your body and your intuitive values tunes you in to your healthy weight.

No matter how hard a program tries to make you ignore your body's messages,
your intuition with your senses, always guides you to recognize your unique needs.
  • A big limit of dieting is that it's generic. You and your best friend - who have totally different body issues - may decide to do a certain program together. Does this really make sense? Do you have identical physical and emotional needs?
  • Holidays are the perfect time to respect and celebrate your body. Overeating or starving causes dissatisfaction that leads to binging. 
  • When you share the taste of pleasure with family and friends, you fill the void of emotional and social hunger When you talk about how food tastes, you connect your mind with your body and your emotions and you will discover satisfaction. Guaranteed!
Prepare for holiday party challenges this year by keeping aware of your senses to stay in control of your choices. Be loyal to you at holiday parties. It takes courage.  Fortunately, courage is intuitive. That's why people surprise themselves when they are brave. 

Holiday help is in your mouth and comes through your nose and eyes. Courage comes from your heart. Don't let your holidays be sabotaged by rigid mental attitudes. Be flexible. Tune-in to your attitude and intuition and Have Fun!

Jane -
I love this quote:


I really appreciate your message. We can trust ourselves. It takes work, but we can. Thank you.

One thing that makes it easier to trust yourself is to forgive and let go of past choices. Doing this, is giving yourself the chance to start fresh. The more you do it the more natural it is!

Thanks for the comment!
