Instead of focusing on what to eat and what not to eat, my clients and I explore the answers to the following questions:
What do you want more of in your life?
What do want less of?
What have you not let go of that still burdens you?
What “fuels” and energizes you?
When do you feel most alive and well?
How can you create more balance in your life?
What does better self-care look like to you?
By addressing the real issues in your life, you will find that food becomes less and less of a mood regulator. Get yourself a nice journal and start writing down some answers to those questions. This will start a process of self-discovery and healing.
There is a way out of “stuffing” your feelings and coping with challenges by eating. You deserve a full life. It is a longer process but it’s worth it. You are worth it!
