How to Stop Binge Eating + Exercise
In this video, I want to give you a powerful exercise to help you stop the overeating, binge eating, and food cravings when you’re stressed out. And to help you feel like you can achieve your weight loss goals without struggling.
But first, I’ll give you some background about my struggles so you can see where this exercise came from.
I struggled with trying to lose the extra 10 to 15 pounds. I just didn’t feel happy in my body. But no matter how much calorie counting, exercise, and healthy eating I did I could never keep the weight off permanently because I would fall into these binge eating patterns. I would crave high sugar, high fat, high carb foods at night like cereal, ice cream, cookies, or run down to the convenient store and get Twix bars, kit kat bars, or some type of junk food.
And then, of course, I would feel completely guilty afterward, which would make me feel hopeless about my dieting effrts. I’d feel like such a failure, give up and eat more junk food.
It felt like this never-ending cycle of eating healthy and losing the weight, then binge eating and gaining it back. Over and over — yo-yo dieting.
I discovered EFT! Which stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. If you’ve never heard of it, you cancheck out my video on EFT for food cravings to see how effective it really works!
I became a certified coach in EFT for emotional eating and weight loss. Although my coaching clients and workshop attendees were having amazing results and success stories with EFT for some reason the technique wasn’t working for me as well as it used to the first time I had used it.
It wasn’t until I was speaking with a life coach of mine about the issue (for like months) that she told me I have tons of disempowering beliefs about my weight and myself that I keep playing in my head over and over.
She told me about the exercise I share in the video and my life completely changed!
The cravings were gone! Typically I would want something sweet after a meal but it no longer happened. The night time urges for junk food disappeared. I was eating healthier foods, taking good care of myself, smiling more, exercising easier, and I feel so in control. Unbelievable!
That’s when I realized why I had amazing success with EFT the first time I discovered it. I didn’t know it at the time but the technique had changed my disempowering thoughts and beliefs.
I’d love to hear how this exercise helped you and definitely share your top 3 new empowering beliefs.
