It is 9 o’clock at night; you are finally relaxing, maybe sitting in front of the TV. All day long you have made reasonable eating choices, you had dinner and you are not really hungry. However, something drives you to go to the fridge or cupboard and look for a snack. You know the snack will make you feel better, it will help you to relax, be a nice reward or distraction.
This is the moment to stop right there and ask yourself what negative emotion you are trying to distract yourself from. What were you just feeling before you got up to go to the fridge?
Your response might be to say, I felt bored, or I felt tired, or I felt like I needed a treat. But we might have to go deeper to really understand and eliminate the emotional trigger.
Emotional eating is one of the biggest sabotaging factors when losing weight or maintaining your ideal weight. As long as your subconscious does not support you fully in your health goals and operates on limiting beliefs losing weight and maintaining that weight might always be a struggle.
Such limiting beliefs are:
I need my comfort foods.
I am always hungry.
Eating is a good distraction from negative feelings.
Eating makes me feel good (safe / comforted / happy / loved / calm like me / relaxed… etc.)
These beliefs can be re-programmed using Psych-K® and/or Hypnosis with supportive beliefs like:
I easily let go of all emotional reasons for overeating.
I am free of emotional eating.
I stop and think before I eat.
I distinguish clearly between physical hunger and emotional hunger.
I satisfy my emotional hunger in appropriate ways.
When I am tired, I rest.
When I feel sad, I…
When I feel scared, I…
When I am bored I always find something better to do than to eat.
