Part 2 : Avoiding Emotional Eating Through Your Food Intake
Have you ever said to yourself “If I’m not dieting….then what ? ”
Do I just have to give up and be fat ?
Can I really just lose weight by eating normal healthy food ?
Hang on – Wtf does a “normal” person eat anyway??
I get it – sometimes throwing off the shackles of dieting can feel really scary.
The problem is we’ve been taught to distrust our body’s own innate healing ability.
We’ve been conditioned to believe that fat on our body is something we should be ashamed of and that we should punish out of existence.
We’ve become more accustomed to criticising and whipping our bodies than just listening – and allowing her needs to dicate to us when and what to eat.
Although I do hear you saying “If I let my body eat what she wants – then she would eat ALL the biscuits and ALL the cake and I would be a Fat Fatty Forever ! ”
Stay with me – and consider this for a moment :
When was the last time you ate soooo much chicken, broccoli and sweet potato – to the point where you were feeling sick and nauseous ?
I’m guessing that’s been extremely rare or maybe never?
In stark contrast how often have you made yourself sick by eating too many Tim Tams or ice-cream or over stuffed yourself with a box of Shapes ? ( Maybe it’s happened way too often than you would like to recall?)
Okay – so the reason you haven’t made yourself sick ( as a regular habit ) when eating real, whole foods is because your body will tell you when you’ve had enough.
That’s called Satiety, and it’s one of our body’s natural reflexes. Satiety is an integral part to your non-dieting weight loss success.
And once you’ve tapped into your body’s natural reflexes –
you will stop struggling with your weight

Rachel’s lost 7kg or 15 lbs over the past 9 or so months using my non-diet weight loss methodologies and in Rachel’s words it’s been really easy and effortless and definitely without deprivation or punishing exercise.
In the first part of the interview we really delved into the emotional eating side of things –but this short 15 minute or so resource actually describes more of the educational process around food and how I show my students to stop looking at food as either good or bad, but to understand it as fuel. One of the tools we work through in the Re-School is to how to balance your macronutrients of protein, fats and carbohydrates so that you’re not always guessing, going hungry, sugar binging or sugar crashing.
So this is an awesome tune in for you if you’d like to get some insight into what Rachel’s actually been eating and how she reformed herself as a staple bread eater and let go of the deprive, binge, guilt cycle.
