400;\">Why?  Because I was a dieting champ and it\'s pretty much all I talked about.  In fact, I made dieting and weight loss <a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/i-was-a-professional-dieter\"><span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">my profession</span></a>!  </span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">So why the abrupt change?  </span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Basically I woke up to the fact that dieting was detrimental to me in so many ways.  The only good thing about it was the actual (temporary) weight loss, which inevitably lasted about 2 minutes before I went back on the upward swing and I’d start again anew.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">And the downsides were infinite.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">What a crazy and miserable cycle.  I started to call the whole process <a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/dejavu-dieting\">“Dejavu” dieting </a> because it was all so familar!</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">So below are my top 11 reasons why I officially stopped dieting made some powerful mindset shifts.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I get it.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">There is this amazing promise and hope that dieting gives us.  When we boil it down to our most authentic desires though, it really isn’t about the weight loss.  It’s about our need to feel good in our skin, our desire for love and acceptance and admiration and our pursuit of health.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">And guess what?  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I can guarantee you that you can have all of that and way more without ever dieting again or stepping on a scale.  Below are 11 reasons why I stopped dieting and some powerful mindset shifts to help give you what you really want in life.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">1.To reduce stress response and inflammation in my body</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Your body perceives dieting as an actual stressor on the body.  I mean why else would we be depriving it of food when hungry or specific nutrients or food groups unless there was a famine or some other type of crisis.  When we undergo a stress response day-in and day-out through dieting, our bodies respond by secreting stress hormones which alter our hunger hormones, create inflammation and increase fat storage while decreasing muscle mass (after all, your body is in preservation mode). Stopping the dieting and adopting a <a href=\"http://jenny-eden.teachable.com/p/my-7-day-email-course-fast-track-to-slow-eating/?preview=logged_out\">mindful/intuitive eating</a> approach can stop the inflammation and allow your body to release weight naturally and with flow rather than force.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">2. To develop internal wisdom vs external wisdom</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">When I dieted, I only focused on external factors: What the scale said, which expert suggested what and what time it was. (because even if I was hungry at 4pm, I’d force myself to wait until 6pm to eat).  Developing and honoring internal wisdom is far more useful because it means you’re listening to your body rather than an expert who doesn’t know you and your own biochemical and lifestyle needs.  Honoring your internal hunger cues can guide you to a place of eating when your body is communicating to you it needs nourishment, thereby rewarding you with satiety.  Again, it’s about flow, not force.  It’s about accepting and honoring your appetite.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">3. To be less fearful of food </span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Dieting made me orthorexic.  I was literally scared of certain foods and made food a moral issue when it’s simply energy.  I felt victorious when I ate certain foods and guilty when I ate others.  That is giving food a lot of power!!  Now I realize that food is to be enjoyed and not to be fearful of (unless of course you have a life-threatening allergy to food) and that paradigm shift in my mind about food has made such a difference in my ability to truly bring awareness and pleasure to the eating experience again.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">4. To trust my body more </span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I did not trust myself….at all.  I trusted diet experts who never met me more than my own body and the communication and feedback it gave me throughout the day.  Stopping dieting gave me an opportunity to trust that my body, like all bodies, need our care which includes trust, communication and respect.  We trust our bodies to breathe naturally and correctly so why don’t we trust it to eat naturally and correctly too?</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">5. To not base my self worth on a scale</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> Down a pound or more meant I was awesome and successful and felt incredible.  Up, even a half a pound, meant my day was ruined, that I was a failure and I felt hopeless.  Now, that I rarely weigh myself, I focus instead on the self-care and healthy behaviors I do daily.  Because ultimately that is WAY more important than what the scale said which never takes into account fluid shifts, constipation, hormone shifts, medication changes or any other variables which could affect the scale that particular day.  I cannot say enough how particularly freeing this aspect of diet cessation has been for me.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">6. To stop obsessing about food </span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">If I tell you right now to not think of an elephant, where is the first place your mind goes?  Right, exactly!  Telling yourself not to think about food and to manipulate and control our appetites, trying to tame it, only makes us obsess about it more.  Creating random food rules makes us apt to break them.  Creating false scarcity around food makes us fearful and keeps food in the forefront of our minds because we will be fearful of someone taking it away.  I now adopt an abundance mindset around food.  Every and all foods are available to me, whenever I want, and as much of it as I want.  And guess what?  I don’t obsess anymore.  I eat when I’m hungry and stop when I’m full.  I mostly choose healthy, nourishing foods and don’t sweat it when I don’t because I savor every bite of the comfort foods, which allows me to feel satisfied with much less of it.  And since I know it will always be available to me, so I don’t create a “last supper” syndrome and go off the deep end.  If you want to learn how to make this critical mindset shift, <a href=\"https://jennyedencoaching.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php\"><span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">click here to set up a 6-week 1:1 session package with me</span></a>.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">7. To stop being my own food police  </span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I created false scarcity and would police myself with arbitrary and random rules that I would often break.  The penalty for the “crime” was deep loathing and frustration with myself and being angry at my body for what it was.  Now that there is no more food police around and I’ve been set free, there is no more shame, frustration and force.  Truly, this is a gift you can give yourself.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">8. To enjoy being in social situations again  </span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I was scared to go to parties.  I dreaded going on vacation.  I often refused to go out to dinner with a friend.  Why?  Because I was scared of overeating or “breaking” my diet.  When dieting and the pursuit of weight loss prevents you from being with people you love and enjoying yourself in social situations, you know it’s time to look at things differently.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">9. To stop intermittently being ravenous and miserable </span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">No two ways about it.  Dieting made me resentful, bitter and miserable.  I hated being hungry all the time and just watching the clock until I could have my next snack or meal.  I hated being left out of social situations and longingly looking at other people enjoying food. I hated being irritable with my friends and family.  And, feeling lightheaded, irritable, and ravenous with 3 little girls to take care of is kind of a nightmare. So is trying to workout when you feel that way.  I even remember waking up in the middle of the night, starving, just waiting until morning when I could eat again.  Make no mistake.  I believed I could not lose weight UNLESS I went to these types of extreme measures.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1></h1>\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">10. To model healthy balanced eating for my daughters</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">My daughters used to see my sulking at the dinner table with my “special diet food” while they ate their delicious, balanced and healthy dinners.  They would ask me why I wasn’t eating with them and why I ate so differently than them.  What was I to say? “Well, mommy doesn’t like her body and needs to bully it to be thin so she can feel successful and admired”  No way.  I refuse to feel that way anymore or ever have my girls feel that they are not good enough the way they are.  I know now my role is to help them <a href=\"http://boston.citymomsblog.com/beauty/4-body-positive-lessons-daughters/\"><span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">navigate which foods give them pleasure and satisfaction</span></a> while also nourishing their little bodies for health and growth.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">11. To free up energetic and physical space in my life to do things that truly matter</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> When I gave up dieting, I had time to build a successful business, write a <a href=\"http://amzn.to/2pBKPyU\"><span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">best-selling book</span></a> and be there more fully for my friends and family.  No amount of weight loss can trump how wonderful that extra mental space and time has given me.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Which of these resonate with you?  Are you ready to make these powerful mindset shifts around dieting and health too?  I welcome your comments below!</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<div style=\"display: none;\"><img src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/stop-dieting.png\" /></div>\";s:10:\"post_title\";s:57:\"11 reasons why I stopped Dieting (and why you should too)\";s:12:\"post_excerpt\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_status\";s:7:\"publish\";s:14:\"comment_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:11:\"ping_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:13:\"post_password\";s:0:\"\";s:9:\"post_name\";s:21:\"why-stop-dieting-tips\";s:7:\"to_ping\";s:0:\"\";s:6:\"pinged\";s:100:\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/i-was-a-professional-dieter\nhttp://jennyedencoaching.com/dejavu-dieting\";s:13:\"post_modified\";s:19:\"2017-11-07 17:29:50\";s:17:\"post_modified_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-11-07 22:29:50\";s:21:\"post_content_filtered\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_parent\";i:0;s:4:\"guid\";s:36:\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/?p=2044\";s:10:\"menu_order\";i:0;s:9:\"post_type\";s:4:\"post\";s:14:\"post_mime_type\";s:0:\"\";s:13:\"comment_count\";s:1:\"0\";s:6:\"filter\";s:3:\"raw\";}i:1;O:7:\"WP_Post\":24:{s:2:\"ID\";i:1895;s:11:\"post_author\";s:1:\"1\";s:9:\"post_date\";s:19:\"2017-07-11 09:10:05\";s:13:\"post_date_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-07-11 13:10:05\";s:12:\"post_content\";s:4492:\"<img class=\"aligncenter wp-image-1896 size-full\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/9-ways-you-know-youre-being-lured-into-dieting-culture.png\" alt=\"dieting culture\" width=\"800\" height=\"800\" />\r\n\r\nMake no mistake. We live in a <a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/i-was-a-professional-dieter\">dieting obsessed</a> culture. And with so many so-called dieting “<a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/be-a-dietary-detective\">experts</a>” out there with so many conflicting advice and philosophies we often place our trust in other people about how to eat, how to move and how to best nourish ourselves. The problem with this is that through all that muck and noise, we lose touch with what we instinctively know about our own bodies and which foods and movement patterns work best for us. This strips away our power and intrinsic wisdom and placing it into other people’s hands. And it takes us away from our path of wellness and health which and into an urgency of weight-loss only defined success. Dieting culture also relies on us not feeling good enough the way we are. At it’s core, it tells us plainly in a not so thinly veiled way that you will not be loved, accepted, worthy or desired unless you eat a certain way, move a certain way, look a certain way or live a certain way. This is simply not true. Time and again, even those who have crawled their way out of dieting and dieting culture, like myself, find themselves lured into the promise of weight loss and the power of dieting culture. After all, it can be an incredibly powerful light that draws us in.\r\n\r\nBut, here are 9 ways to recognize and realize when you are getting caught up in this pervasive culture that sucks us from our own wisdom and from listening deeply to our own sense of self-worth, as we are right now.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2>1.You notice a friend’s recent weight loss and feel dread, worry or concern that you\'ll need to start dieting again as well.</h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2>2.You see some new “low-fat” or “low-carb” item in the grocery store and instinctively grab for it, without knowing any other information about it.</h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2>3.You watch a commercial for a new detox, cleanse or diet program on TV and feel compelled to learn more about it.</h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2>4.You have a wedding coming up and your first thought is how you’re going to lose enough weight in time for it.</h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2>5.Instead of celebrating your 5 days at the gym this week, you chastise yourself for your missed day.</h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2>6.You see a celebrity article about how so-and-so lost her baby weight in 1 week and start to feel frustrated and hopeless that it\'s taking you so long to get it off.</h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2>7. It’s “beach body” or bikini body season, whatever that means, but feel that your beach body is not up to snuff.</h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2>8.You begin to mistrust some of the wonderful health changes you’ve made when you hear about a new program someone else is doing that seems to be working.</h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2>9.You’re with a group of people who are “being good” or “eating clean” and being judgemental about what other people are eating, thereby having you doubt your own intuition about the right way to nourish yourself.</h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nIt is normal and common for us to get sucked back into dieting culture. After all, it’s still the norm of our society and it is what is preached to us in the media and the many diets thrusted in our faces every day. Take time to sit quietly, away from the noise, and notice deeply what feelings this brings up in you and why. Think about the premise of diet culture and how it needs you to stay small (figuratively), stay worried and stay insecure about your own inherent beauty and worth that resides in you and each of us. Then, refocus on your true goals. Of happiness and purpose, and of finding a sustainable, balanced and healthy approach to eating and movement. Take pride that you have been able to unshackle yourself from chronic dieting and dieting culture.\r\n\r\nIf you need help, reach out and let’s schedule a <a href=\"https://jennyedencoaching.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php\">Eating Psychology coaching session</a> together. It took me years to crawl my way out of this pattern and yet it still rears its ugly head from time to time.

I know you have. We all have!  Often, we’ll claim we have that tiny little spot left, right there for some of that cheesecake or a trip to the ice cream store, even when our bellies are bloated and when our bodies are clearly telling us it\'s time to stop eating.\r\nSo why do we do this to ourselves!?\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2>It\'s because of Sensory Specific Satiety or \"Chasing the high.\"</h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<strong>Sensory Specific Satiety</strong> is the sensory experience of decreasing satisfaction with the same type of food. Our taste buds will often become saturated with flavor very quickly and we might continue to eat with the false hope that we can re-activate that powerful flavor bomb we experience in the first few bites. Yet, once saturated, there needs to be a refractory period (yes, not unlike that other type of refractory period) before our taste buds will activate again.\r\n\r\nOne of the reasons buffets are so popular and that individuals will eat more than normal at them is the variety of items with varying flavor profiles. Once we become saturated with one type of food, we attempt to get the flavor \"high\" with another type of food be it a dessert, something spicy or even a bitter component.\r\n\r\n\"A study conducted by Rolls and van Duijvenvoorde in 1984 verified this process by simulating a buffet-style meal. They fed participants four meals that included sausages, bread and butter, chocolate dessert, and bananas. They then fed the participants four courses of one of these foods. The results revealed a 44% increase in overall food consumption when exposed to the meals with a variety of foods.\"\r\n\r\nThis is yet another reason to slow down, notice the flavors on your tongue and appreciate them with awareness because the excitement of those first few bites will diminish with each additional attempt to achieve that same \"high.\"\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2>Other reasons we eat the dessert even if we’re mega-full</h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n1.   Everyone else is and you don’t want to feel left out\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n2.   Your meal wasn’t particularly yummy or satisfying so you feel like you need to seek a pleasurable food even if you are not hungry for it.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n3.  You were raised always having dessert as a child and it becomes part of your food script despite not really needing or even wanting it.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n4.  You feel the need to put a period at the end of a meal.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n5.  You have <a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/food-fomo\"><span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">FOMO</span></a> and worry that if you don’t take advantage of it, especially if it’s something special like a thanksgiving pie, it won’t come round again for a long time.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n6.  You have a nagging feeling that you just want something sweet, even if just a little bit.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n7.  Its brought out at an event or restaurant and you eat it simply because it\'s there.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nWe often chastise ourselves for wanting or needing dessert. We moralize the situation and feel that we must be out of control if we are overeating when our bodies are practically screaming at us to stop. Try ending the moral food fight and devote yourself to a intrinsic check-in instead.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n\"Stop, look and listen\" to your body and your cravings. There is nothing wrong with wanting a small sweet bite at the end of a meal, even if you technically don’t need any more nourishment. When we eat slowly, allow pleasure and awareness into the eating experience and adopt an abundance mindset around food in general - trust me you will be able to stop after a bite or two. Let me show you exactly how that is done.  Book a free <span style=\"color: #ff0000;\"><a style=\"color: #ff0000;\" href=\"https://jennyedencoaching.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php\">30-minute dietary detective</a></span> session with me.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nAnd let me finish this article with these other fascinating little extra knowledge bombs about our taste buds!\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h3>The average person has between 2000-8000 taste buds. They regenerate each week.</h3>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h3>Our taste buds are responsible for how we perceive flavor and taste.</h3>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h3>Some people are \"supertasters\" and have additional taste buds that are sensitive in particular to bitter foods.</h3>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h3>We have taste buds mostly on our tongues but we also have them in the back of our throat and even on our epiglottitis!</h3>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h3>Myth! - We do not have parts of our tongue responsible for noticing different flavors - each part of the tongue can experience sweet, salty, bitter, sour and umami. In general the sides of our tongues are more sensitive to flavor and the back of the tongue can detect bitter in a more pronounced way.</h3>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h3>Taste buds evolved in humans so that we could detect poisonous foods versus safe foods. The bitter sensitivity on the back of our tongues makes sense so that we can spit out foods that might be poisonous before swallowing them.</h3>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nWhat about you?  Do you feel compelled to eat dessert, even when you\'re full?\r\n\r\n\r\n<div style=display:none;><img src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/ice-cream.png\"></div>\";s:10:\"post_title\";s:47:\"Why you want dessert...even when you\'re stuffed\";s:12:\"post_excerpt\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_status\";s:7:\"publish\";s:14:\"comment_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:11:\"ping_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:13:\"post_password\";s:0:\"\";s:9:\"post_name\";s:31:\"want-dessert-even-youre-stuffed\";s:7:\"to_ping\";s:0:\"\";s:6:\"pinged\";s:39:\"\nhttp://jennyedencoaching.com/food-fomo\";s:13:\"post_modified\";s:19:\"2018-02-07 10:41:53\";s:17:\"post_modified_gmt\";s:19:\"2018-02-07 15:41:53\";s:21:\"post_content_filtered\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_parent\";i:0;s:4:\"guid\";s:36:\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/?p=2208\";s:10:\"menu_order\";i:0;s:9:\"post_type\";s:4:\"post\";s:14:\"post_mime_type\";s:0:\"\";s:13:\"comment_count\";s:1:\"4\";s:6:\"filter\";s:3:\"raw\";}i:3;O:7:\"WP_Post\":24:{s:2:\"ID\";i:1535;s:11:\"post_author\";s:1:\"1\";s:9:\"post_date\";s:19:\"2017-01-31 10:12:16\";s:13:\"post_date_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-01-31 15:12:16\";s:12:\"post_content\";s:4053:\"<h1><img class=\"aligncenter size-full wp-image-1536\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/Healthy-in-a-Hurry-4-Strategies-to-try-today.png\" alt=\"Healthy in a Hurry\" width=\"800\" height=\"1200\" /></h1>\r\n<h1>Want to be Healthy in a Hurry?</h1>\r\nPeople ask me all the time about strategies they can use to eat healthy and live a healthy lifestyle even when they\'re extremely busy. Let me assure you that eating healthy and being busy do not need to be in conflict with one another!\r\n\r\nThe fact remains, however, that in our fast-food culture, healthy eating doesn\'t just \"happen.\" If we just go about our day spontaneously, there are infinite ways our culture brings us unexpected unhealthy eating opportunities: The candy bowl at the bank, the samples at Starbucks, the office leftovers, etc. I could go on. Not to mention that even when we have the best intentions, or even the best laid plans, things can go south quickly. The Plan: You had intended to stop at whole foods, grab some great produce and make some roasted vegetables. Reality: Your meeting ran over, you\'re late to grab the kids and you\'re starving so you just stop at Domino\'s and head home.\r\n\r\nDoes any of this sound familiar? You are not alone. We are all up against this same kind of madness.\r\n\r\nThat\'s why today I\'m giving you my \"<em>Healthy in a Hurry</em>\" ninja tactics. While leading a consistent healthy life takes work, commitment and practice, adopting some short cuts and some careful pre-planning can help you add nutrition, macronutrient balance and satiety when we most need it.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<hr />\r\n\r\n<strong>Strategy #1</strong> - Link a easy morning routine that you already have in place (i.e. making the kids lunches) with a new, healthy behavior. For instance, while you\'re making the kids lunches, grab some baggies and fill them with cut up peppers, cucumbers and carrots to keep at work for yourself.\r\n\r\n<strong>Strategy # 2</strong> - Batch prep roasted veggies, soups, stews and the like on one day during the week so when you get home you don\'t have to be in decision anxiety about what you\'ll make or dread the time it will take to whip up a healthy meal.\r\n\r\n<strong>Strategy # 3</strong> - Pre-make your morning smoothie. (Need some help with smoothie making? <a href=\"http://el2.convertkit-mail2.com/c/preview/3ydpyg/aHR0cDovL2plbm55ZWRlbmNvYWNoaW5nLmNvbS9zbW9vdGhpZXMtZGVteXN0aWZpZWQ=\" target=\"_blank\">Click here</a>. ) Make your smoothie the night before. <em>Yes, I said the night before</em>. Then, either put the base of the blender in your fridge and simply re-blitz it for 5 seconds in the morning or put the smoothie in a mason jar or water bottle and freeze it. If you choose the latter, you can sip on it throughout the day is it defrosts. You can also pre-make <a href=\"http://el2.convertkit-mail2.com/c/preview/x1e516/aHR0cDovL2RhaWx5YnVybi5jb20vbGlmZS9yZWNpcGVzL2Vhc3ktb3Zlcm5pZ2h0LW9hdHMtcmVjaXBlcy8=\" target=\"_blank\">oatmeal bowls</a> and <a href=\"http://el2.convertkit-mail2.com/c/preview/l178yv/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5jbGVhbmVhdGluZ21hZy5jb20vYmxvZy9ndWVzdC1ibG9nLTMtbXVzdC10cnktYWNhaS1ib3dsLXJlY2lwZXMv\" target=\"_blank\">acai bowls</a> to easily pull out as soon as you wake up for a healthy, quick breakfast.\r\n\r\n<strong>Strategy # 4 - </strong>Make a list of all the healthy \"fast food\" near your home and office. When you are starving, without a rock solid plan for dinner - rather than defaulting to a KFC or Dunkin Donuts, you can GPS your way quickly to a B.Good, Whole Foods (great salad bars!), or other local juice bar or Sweet Greens.\r\n\r\n<hr />\r\n\r\n<strong> Which one (or more) you will try?  Let me know in the comments section below!</strong>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nAnd, if you\'d like many more meal planning hacks to help you make it even easier for you to get heathy in a hurry, enter your name and email below and I\'ll send you my meal-planning hacks cheat sheet!\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<div style=\"display: none;\"><img src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/healthy-in-a-hurry-pinterest.png\" /></div>\";s:10:\"post_title\";s:32:\"Healthy in a Hurry: 4 Strategies\";s:12:\"post_excerpt\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_status\";s:7:\"publish\";s:14:\"comment_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:11:\"ping_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:13:\"post_password\";s:0:\"\";s:9:\"post_name\";s:13:\"healthy-hurry\";s:7:\"to_ping\";s:0:\"\";s:6:\"pinged\";s:0:\"\";s:13:\"post_modified\";s:19:\"2017-01-30 17:27:59\";s:17:\"post_modified_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-01-30 22:27:59\";s:21:\"post_content_filtered\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_parent\";i:0;s:4:\"guid\";s:36:\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/?p=1535\";s:10:\"menu_order\";i:0;s:9:\"post_type\";s:4:\"post\";s:14:\"post_mime_type\";s:0:\"\";s:13:\"comment_count\";s:1:\"1\";s:6:\"filter\";s:3:\"raw\";}}s:10:\"post_count\";i:4;s:12:\"current_post\";i:-1;s:11:\"in_the_loop\";b:0;s:4:\"post\";r:154;s:13:\"comment_count\";i:0;s:15:\"current_comment\";i:-1;s:11:\"found_posts\";s:2:\"12\";s:13:\"max_num_pages\";d:3;s:21:\"max_num_comment_pages\";i:0;s:9:\"is_single\";b:0;s:10:\"is_preview\";b:0;s:7:\"is_page\";b:0;s:10:\"is_archive\";b:1;s:7:\"is_date\";b:0;s:7:\"is_year\";b:0;s:8:\"is_month\";b:0;s:6:\"is_day\";b:0;s:7:\"is_time\";b:0;s:9:\"is_author\";b:0;s:11:\"is_category\";b:0;s:6:\"is_tag\";b:1;s:6:\"is_tax\";b:0;s:9:\"is_search\";b:0;s:7:\"is_feed\";b:0;s:15:\"is_comment_feed\";b:0;s:12:\"is_trackback\";b:0;s:7:\"is_home\";b:0;s:6:\"is_404\";b:0;s:8:\"is_embed\";b:0;s:8:\"is_paged\";b:0;s:8:\"is_admin\";b:0;s:13:\"is_attachment\";b:0;s:11:\"is_singular\";b:0;s:9:\"is_robots\";b:0;s:13:\"is_posts_page\";b:0;s:20:\"is_post_type_archive\";b:0;s:25:\"\0WP_Query\0query_vars_hash\";s:32:\"3d676a81105dd126e948b6f8a9eb2f54\";s:28:\"\0WP_Query\0query_vars_changed\";b:0;s:17:\"thumbnails_cached\";b:0;s:19:\"\0WP_Query\0stopwords\";N;s:23:\"\0WP_Query\0compat_fields\";a:2:{i:0;s:15:\"query_vars_hash\";i:1;s:18:\"query_vars_changed\";}s:24:\"\0WP_Query\0compat_methods\";a:2:{i:0;s:16:\"init_query_flags\";i:1;s:15:\"parse_tax_query\";}}', 'no') ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE `option_name` = VALUES(`option_name`), `option_value` = VALUES(`option_value`), `autoload` = VALUES(`autoload`)

/></span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">The dialogue is the same, the day is different:</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">“You look and feel horrible, Jenny,” I tell myself.  “You must have gained 15 pounds! That’s it. I’m done.  I’m making a drastic change and it starts right now!” </span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">This vitriol-filled convo with myself always ended with one or more grandiose gestures and declarations like the ones below.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">“No sugar for 3 months!”  </span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">“Up my workouts to two hours a day”  </span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">“No eating after 6pm” </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">........and the list of good intentions (lies) continues.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">This is how a week looked like as a former desperate dejavu dieter.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2><strong>Day 1: </strong></h2>\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">My resolve is fresh and my will-power high.  Day 1 is perfect. I even eschew my daily sugar in my coffee for coconut oil and sip my way to caffeinated bliss.  Night time is not as easy but I get through by brushing my teeth and going to bed early to ignore the rumblings in my belly.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2><strong>Day 2 </strong></h2>\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Sucks with headaches, irritability and bubbles of resentment and worry creeping to the surface.  I shove them down and stay steely in my resolve. I chastise myself for eating at 6:02 but I take some deep breaths and move forward.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2><strong>Day 3 </strong></h2>\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">starts off great but slowly dissolves into a cornucopia food binge that includes gummy worms and Doritos by 2pm.  Why? Well, because I was late for work, became overwhelmed and stressed, got some bad news, felt a sniffle coming on, etc. and besides...I DESERVED those gummy worms after all of that.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I think you know how days 4 through 7 go after that.  (hint: down the tubes)</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">........And the angst and despair and frustration reemerge anew.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">The question remains however. </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Why do we do this?  Why do we make desperation declarations that only leave us feeling like complete failures mere days or weeks later?  Why do we make such black and white proclamations? Why do we set ourselves up this way to only fill us with dread and doubt for the next time we attempt the same tactics?</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">One reason is that we are a species that seeks pleasure and avoids pain.  That is hardwired into our DNA for survival. Add stress, discomfort and/or overwhelm to the mix and the the results are the same -<strong>    ::wheels, spun::  </strong></span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">In fact Albert Einstein had a quote that encapsulates this phenomenon.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2><strong>“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.”</strong></h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">We BELIEVE this time will be different, that our resolve is stronger, that our will-power is intact.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">What we don’t realize, however, is that we’re looking at the entirely wrong path to begin with.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Ask yourself what your true desires are.  What is the deep wish or desire or feeling you want to fulfill that you believe dieting, restricting and/or attaining a smaller body will provide for you.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2><strong>Make a list right now.</strong></h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Ok, next start asking yourself how you can feel and experience and fulfill those most soulful and deep wishes without changing anything about your body.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Finally, start taking action on those exact things.  Let dieting go, just for the time being. It doesn’t have to be forever but just for right now.  We’re looking at getting your end result right from the beginning, without any bullying, restricting and self-loathing tactics to get you there.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I am not discounting or undermining the fact that you may feel very uncomfortable in your clothes, doing the things you used to enjoy or even being in your own skin.  I truly understand that and have the same motives as you - get you to feel better, but maybe by turning what you’ve always done (or thought you had to do) to achieve that.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">So, let’s pick one item from that desire list.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">EXAMPLE:  </span></h2>\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Desire #1 that often leads to grandiose gestures such as forbidding sugar or other foods from ever entering your mouth again.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<em><strong>“I just want to feel good in my skin again”</strong></em>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Ok, great.  That’s the desire statement.  But with each desire statement you create, question whether losing weight is the ONLY way for you to achieve that.  (you may truly believe it is, but with further inquiry may see lots of other paths to feel good in your skin)</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Your former response to the pain of NOT feeling that way:  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Diet starts tomorrow, no sugar, exercise an hour more per day, etc.</span></h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><strong>NEW</strong> response to this valid pain:  I will find a new kind of exercise that I love.  I will add in 1 extra apple per day for the fiber, which makes me feel good.  I’ll start meditating and going out in nature more like I used to do”</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">See the difference?  Some or all of these behaviors MAY lead to weight loss but more importantly, some or all of these may reach the deeper desire of feeling good in your skin.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">One is a to-do, positive and measurable approach to test out and see how it feels.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">The other is a desperation tactic born out of the belief that we are broken and need to be fixed immediately.  Any belief or behavior born out of stress and not-good-enoughness will end up being a temporary change. </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Trust me on that.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Because, while we want that quick fix so badly and our dieting culture is predicated on YOU believing that you are broken;  that you will not get what you want until or unless you take steps that literally abuses your body and wrestles your appetite to the ground until you eventually either ignore the signals, forget what those signals feel like in the first place or ricochet the other direction by dissolving into a 3-day long binge creating more angst and distress than you had in the first place.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">The time is now to stop this dangerous and soul-crushing <a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/dejavu-dieting\">deja-vu dieting</a>.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I can’t promise you a quick-fix.  I can’t promise exterior transformations.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I CAN promise you peace, freedom and uncovering the steps to the utmost joyful relationship with food and body you’ve ever had.  Imagine having everything you’ve ever wanted. </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">That can be you. </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">But you have to get rid of the timelines and urgency. </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> Take the slow, soulful and ultimately sustainable path with me instead.  I promise you won’t regret it.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Sign up for your <a href=\"https://jennyedencoaching.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php\">free 30-minute eating exploration call</a> with me today.</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<div style=display:none;><img src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/Copy-of-detective.png\"></div>\";s:10:\"post_title\";s:49:\"No more Sugar!

You enroll or try several different types of diets each year - each with their own sets of rules, restrictions and/or regulations\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n2. You have been told to finish your plate always because of people who are starving in other parts of the world or in your own community\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n3. You feel guilty wasting food and/or feel guilty spending money on food and then wasting it\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n4. You often create random food rules on yourself (I\'ll only have 3 bites) and then break or extend those rules much to your chagrin\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n5. You are filled with a sense food morality - the idea that certain foods are good or bad and you are thus good or bad for eating said foods\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n6. You worry that if you don\'t take advantage of this special food or treat you may never have it again (dieting mentality)\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nSo, if you resonated with one or more of these examples, it\'s likely you have been or are steeped in a scarcity versus an abundance mindset.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nSo, here you are, finally allowing yourself to have pizza after all of these months of restriction (self-imposed or through a diet program).  You taste the pizza and it\'s a huge disappointment.  The cheese to sauce ratio is all wrong.  The crust is soggy and it the cheese has no stringiness to it. (major bummer!).  But, since it\'s been so long since you\'ve had pizza, AND since you\'re likely to restrict yourself again come Monday, you just go ahead and keep eating it anyway.  You keep hoping that the second or third bite might be better knowing all the while that you\'re taking in calories that are not even worth it to you.  How many of you are nodding your heads right now.  Eureka!\r\n\r\nWhy else would we continue to keep eating something that doesn\'t even taste good?\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1>The \"Its there so I eat it\" Syndrome</h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nQuite simply you will continue to eat something that is in front of you simply because it\'s there, even if it tastes crappy or stale!  Brian Wansink, author of the book, Mindless Eating, did a food psychology study on this. He and his researchers divided  movie goers into two groups.  Group 1 received a small bucket of 3 day old stale popcorn while the other group received a large bucket of 3-day old stale popcorn.  At the end of the movie researchers found that the group with the larger bucket of stale popcorn ate 30% MORE popcorn than the group with the small bucket despite it being stale!  Bottom line: <a href=\"https://app.convertkit.com/landing_pages/263580?v=6\">If it\'s there you will eat it.</a>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nFinally, there is a 3rd reason why we might continue to munch on a snack or meal, that doesn\'t taste good and doesn\'t seem to serve you in any way.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1>Social pressure</h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<strong>Example</strong>: Your co-worker invites you to dinner and makes her speciality meal, which happens to be very under-seasoned and emanating a smell that slightly reminds you of dog poo.  You taste it and your fears are confirmed.  This meal is going to suck.  But, you eat it anyway, or some of it at least.  Why?  Because you don\'t want to hurt her feelings and everyone else seems to love it so you mightily press on, despite being full and not at all enjoying it.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nSo, next time you feel guilty, confused or worried that you\'re eating something that you don\'t even like - take comfort in the good reasons why we do this.  Understand the role that dieting mentality and false scarcity brings to this phenomenon and construct your environment in a way that will at least prevent the \"its there so you eat it\" syndrome.  I created a <a href=\"https://app.convertkit.com/landing_pages/263580?v=6\">step-by-step worksheet</a> on exactly how to do this and you can access it by <span style=\"color: #ff0000;\"><a style=\"color: #ff0000;\" href=\"https://app.convertkit.com/landing_pages/263580?v=6\">clicking here</a>!</span>\r\n<div style=\"display: none;\"><img src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/stale-cookies.png\" /></div>\";s:10:\"post_title\";s:46:\"Why you eat Cookies....even when they\'re stale\";s:12:\"post_excerpt\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_status\";s:7:\"publish\";s:14:\"comment_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:11:\"ping_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:13:\"post_password\";s:0:\"\";s:9:\"post_name\";s:17:\"eat-cookies-stale\";s:7:\"to_ping\";s:0:\"\";s:6:\"pinged\";s:0:\"\";s:13:\"post_modified\";s:19:\"2017-12-20 18:30:09\";s:17:\"post_modified_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-12-20 23:30:09\";s:21:\"post_content_filtered\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_parent\";i:0;s:4:\"guid\";s:36:\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/?p=2136\";s:10:\"menu_order\";i:0;s:9:\"post_type\";s:4:\"post\";s:14:\"post_mime_type\";s:0:\"\";s:13:\"comment_count\";s:1:\"1\";s:6:\"filter\";s:3:\"raw\";}i:2;O:7:\"WP_Post\":24:{s:2:\"ID\";i:1535;s:11:\"post_author\";s:1:\"1\";s:9:\"post_date\";s:19:\"2017-01-31 10:12:16\";s:13:\"post_date_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-01-31 15:12:16\";s:12:\"post_content\";s:4053:\"<h1><img class=\"aligncenter size-full wp-image-1536\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/Healthy-in-a-Hurry-4-Strategies-to-try-today.png\" alt=\"Healthy in a Hurry\" width=\"800\" height=\"1200\" /></h1>\r\n<h1>Want to be Healthy in a Hurry?</h1>\r\nPeople ask me all the time about strategies they can use to eat healthy and live a healthy lifestyle even when they\'re extremely busy. Let me assure you that eating healthy and being busy do not need to be in conflict with one another!\r\n\r\nThe fact remains, however, that in our fast-food culture, healthy eating doesn\'t just \"happen.\" If we just go about our day spontaneously, there are infinite ways our culture brings us unexpected unhealthy eating opportunities: The candy bowl at the bank, the samples at Starbucks, the office leftovers, etc. I could go on. Not to mention that even when we have the best intentions, or even the best laid plans, things can go south quickly. The Plan: You had intended to stop at whole foods, grab some great produce and make some roasted vegetables. Reality: Your meeting ran over, you\'re late to grab the kids and you\'re starving so you just stop at Domino\'s and head home.\r\n\r\nDoes any of this sound familiar? You are not alone. We are all up against this same kind of madness.\r\n\r\nThat\'s why today I\'m giving you my \"<em>Healthy in a Hurry</em>\" ninja tactics. While leading a consistent healthy life takes work, commitment and practice, adopting some short cuts and some careful pre-planning can help you add nutrition, macronutrient balance and satiety when we most need it.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<hr />\r\n\r\n<strong>Strategy #1</strong> - Link a easy morning routine that you already have in place (i.e. making the kids lunches) with a new, healthy behavior. For instance, while you\'re making the kids lunches, grab some baggies and fill them with cut up peppers, cucumbers and carrots to keep at work for yourself.\r\n\r\n<strong>Strategy # 2</strong> - Batch prep roasted veggies, soups, stews and the like on one day during the week so when you get home you don\'t have to be in decision anxiety about what you\'ll make or dread the time it will take to whip up a healthy meal.\r\n\r\n<strong>Strategy # 3</strong> - Pre-make your morning smoothie. (Need some help with smoothie making? <a href=\"http://el2.convertkit-mail2.com/c/preview/3ydpyg/aHR0cDovL2plbm55ZWRlbmNvYWNoaW5nLmNvbS9zbW9vdGhpZXMtZGVteXN0aWZpZWQ=\" target=\"_blank\">Click here</a>. ) Make your smoothie the night before. <em>Yes, I said the night before</em>. Then, either put the base of the blender in your fridge and simply re-blitz it for 5 seconds in the morning or put the smoothie in a mason jar or water bottle and freeze it. If you choose the latter, you can sip on it throughout the day is it defrosts. You can also pre-make <a href=\"http://el2.convertkit-mail2.com/c/preview/x1e516/aHR0cDovL2RhaWx5YnVybi5jb20vbGlmZS9yZWNpcGVzL2Vhc3ktb3Zlcm5pZ2h0LW9hdHMtcmVjaXBlcy8=\" target=\"_blank\">oatmeal bowls</a> and <a href=\"http://el2.convertkit-mail2.com/c/preview/l178yv/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5jbGVhbmVhdGluZ21hZy5jb20vYmxvZy9ndWVzdC1ibG9nLTMtbXVzdC10cnktYWNhaS1ib3dsLXJlY2lwZXMv\" target=\"_blank\">acai bowls</a> to easily pull out as soon as you wake up for a healthy, quick breakfast.\r\n\r\n<strong>Strategy # 4 - </strong>Make a list of all the healthy \"fast food\" near your home and office. When you are starving, without a rock solid plan for dinner - rather than defaulting to a KFC or Dunkin Donuts, you can GPS your way quickly to a B.Good, Whole Foods (great salad bars!), or other local juice bar or Sweet Greens.\r\n\r\n<hr />\r\n\r\n<strong> Which one (or more) you will try?  Let me know in the comments section below!</strong>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nAnd, if you\'d like many more meal planning hacks to help you make it even easier for you to get heathy in a hurry, enter your name and email below and I\'ll send you my meal-planning hacks cheat sheet!\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<div style=\"display: none;\"><img src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/healthy-in-a-hurry-pinterest.png\" /></div>\";s:10:\"post_title\";s:32:\"Healthy in a Hurry: 4 Strategies\";s:12:\"post_excerpt\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_status\";s:7:\"publish\";s:14:\"comment_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:11:\"ping_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:13:\"post_password\";s:0:\"\";s:9:\"post_name\";s:13:\"healthy-hurry\";s:7:\"to_ping\";s:0:\"\";s:6:\"pinged\";s:0:\"\";s:13:\"post_modified\";s:19:\"2017-01-30 17:27:59\";s:17:\"post_modified_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-01-30 22:27:59\";s:21:\"post_content_filtered\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_parent\";i:0;s:4:\"guid\";s:36:\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/?p=1535\";s:10:\"menu_order\";i:0;s:9:\"post_type\";s:4:\"post\";s:14:\"post_mime_type\";s:0:\"\";s:13:\"comment_count\";s:1:\"1\";s:6:\"filter\";s:3:\"raw\";}i:3;O:7:\"WP_Post\":24:{s:2:\"ID\";i:2198;s:11:\"post_author\";s:1:\"1\";s:9:\"post_date\";s:19:\"2018-01-29 11:26:07\";s:13:\"post_date_gmt\";s:19:\"2018-01-29 16:26:07\";s:12:\"post_content\";s:4584:\"<img class=\"aligncenter wp-image-2199 size-full\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/annie-spratt-79273.jpg\" alt=\"broccoli hoarder\" width=\"3000\" height=\"2898\" />\r\n\r\nAllow me recreate the scene for you.\r\n\r\nI was in the midst of one of my many intense dieting bouts. Other than the disgusting and scanty meal replacements that I HAD to eat for my dieting program, the only other foods I could eat were veggies and fruits.\r\n\r\nI felt scared to ever go out to eat, attend a party or generally be in a social situation because I was in such constant scarcity mindset that I felt that any exposure to real food would send me into a tail spin of m&amp;ms and <a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/i-was-a-professional-dieter\">pizza-eating</a> for a week.\r\n\r\nMake no mistake that THIS is what dieting culture does to us.\r\n\r\nSo, you can imagine that when my friend Lisa came to visit my husband and I in Boston and she suggested going out to eat, I was paralyzed. I couldn\'t say no but I was also dreading it and had my fists clenched in defiant will-power mode the whole time. Let\'s just say I wasn\'t relaxed. (a true shame now that I think back on it)\r\n\r\nWe decided on Legal Seafood where I knew I could at least order some sides of broccoli and potato. I had also done my due diligence by snarfing down one of those gnarly pre-packaged, vacuum-sealed monstrosities, ahem, I mean meal replacements, so I wouldn\'t be starving upon arrival and go straight for the rolls.\r\n\r\nI ordered an ample oversized serving of broccoli, a salad with no dressing and a potato. (mmm, indulgence at it\'s highest, not)\r\n\r\nThen the unexpected happened.\r\n\r\nMy husband was happily eating his salmon with rice, a roll with lots of butter and a fried appetizer that had come earlier.\r\n\r\nAnd then he said the dreaded 7 words.\r\n\r\n\"Can I have some of your broccoli?\"\r\n\r\nNow, before you judge me and think I\'m a terrible wife with no manners and no generosity, please remember that I was literally in a fight-or-flight response from weeks of calorie deprivation and sheer discipline in keeping up with my soul-crushing, pleasure-eradicating, and misery-inducing dieting.\r\n\r\n\"NO! Come on! Get your own order of broccoli,\" I replied angrily. \"This is the only $%#ing thing I can eat dude!\"\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1>I was HOARDING MY BROCCOLI, ya\'ll.</h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nSeriously, I needed an intervention!\r\n\r\nMy sweet and selfless hubby was visibly taken aback but complied and even my friend was giving me the side-eye over my response. He gave me the silent treatment on the way home and for the rest of the night but I was so sure I was in the right about this that I held my ground and took it in stride until we hashed it out a few nights later.\r\n\r\nSadly, it wasn\'t until years later when I finally abandoned dieting for good and adopted <a href=\"https://jenny-eden.teachable.com/p/my-7-day-email-course-fast-track-to-slow-eating/?preview=logged_out\">mindful and intuitive eating</a> did I realize how sad and pathetic that whole scene was at the Legal Seafood. And it made me sad that I allowed dieting and restriction to put me in such a mean place where I would act so rudely towards someone I love so deeply.\r\n\r\nWe joke about it now but when I recall this story, my husband always says he literally considered whether he could stay in a relationship with someone so obnoxious and stingy!\r\n\r\nI\'ll admit it now. Yes, I was obnoxious and stingy and dieting made me do it!\r\n\r\nAnd for what? For the high honor of being in a smaller body?  To get the applause and accolades of my co-workers and friends?

/>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nI know, I know,  you don\'t get it;  You get along with everyone and have such good friends - so why does your relationship with food have to be so fraught, right?  Despite your easy going disposition and popularity in your communities  when it comes to food you two just can\'t seem to get along.\r\n\r\nI want to be honest even though I\'m considered a \"<a href=\"http://www.bostonglobe.com/magazine/2016/12/01/why-some-people-have-willpower-and-others-don/v9qlEXcYBzIam9zPccN0TN/story.html?event=event25\" target=\"_blank\">food therapist</a>\" and work with people all over the world helping them to develop a better relationship with food, I didn\'t always have such a healthy relationship with food myself. In fact, I struggled for most of my adult life. It wasn\'t until the last 3 years where I finally turned inward and learned how to trust my own body wisdom, stopped chronic dieting and learned to have an amazing and joyful relationship with food. You can have this too!\r\n<h2><span data-verified=\"redactor\" data-redactor-tag=\"span\" data-redactor-style=\"font-size: 16px;\"><strong data-redactor-tag=\"strong\">Let me share with you 5 ways to improve your relationship with food starting NOW!</strong></span></h2>\r\n<span data-verified=\"redactor\" data-redactor-tag=\"span\" data-redactor-style=\"font-size: 16px;\">1. <strong data-redactor-tag=\"strong\">Stop eating when you\'re distracted!</strong> When you eat while driving, watching TV, or even surfing the internet, you\'re not totally present or aware of eating. This can cause us to be also unaware of when we\'re naturally full and can stop eating. It takes 20 minutes for our brains to get the message that its full. When you\'re eating \"on the go\" or in a distracted way, it\'s common to overeat. So, try making EATING the only activity. It will be hard at first but you can do it! Start with just a undistracted snack and go from there.</span>\r\n\r\n<span data-verified=\"redactor\" data-redactor-tag=\"span\" data-redactor-style=\"font-size: 16px;\">2. <strong data-redactor-tag=\"strong\">Get in touch with PLEASURE again</strong>. Guess what? As a species, humans seek pleasure and avoid pain. We\'re so lucky to be a species where we can derive pleasure from eating and flavors....so take the time to savor your food and notice the different flavors and textures on your tongue. We have lived in a restrictive dieting culture for so long that many of us have lost touch with allowing ourselves to enjoy different foods without guilt! I\'m giving you permission to do so! Let me know how it goes!</span>\r\n\r\n<span data-verified=\"redactor\" data-redactor-tag=\"span\" data-redactor-style=\"font-size: 16px;\">3. <strong data-redactor-tag=\"strong\">Choose macronutrient balanced foods</strong> - Aim to have a complex carb (veggie, fruit, whole grains) Lean protein (chicken, fish, eggs, tofu) and a healthy fat (avocado, nuts/seeds, full-fat yogurt, salmon) for every meal and snack. When you give your body what it truly needs in terms of balance, it will reward you with reducing the need to binge or crave or overeat. Even if you end up eating something more unhealthy - enhance that choice with some of the foods I just described. You can then have the best of both worlds because you get the treat you\'re craving and you reduce your chance of binging more on that food because you\'re buffering it with healthy enhancements.</span>\r\n\r\n<span data-verified=\"redactor\" data-redactor-tag=\"span\" data-redactor-style=\"font-size: 16px;\">4.<strong data-redactor-tag=\"strong\">Write a pleasure inventory</strong>. Write down every single thing that gives you happiness, joy and satisfaction big and small. Why? Well, when we eat sugary, salty, processed or fatty foods, tons of DOPAMINE is released in your brain, and the reward centers in the brain light up creating a feedback loop of you wanting more and more of that food. Employees in the food manufacturing business call this the \"Bliss Factor\" for the consumer and it\'s why so many of us struggle! But guess what? We can actually generate our own natural dopamine! We can do it by pursuing lots of items on your pleasure inventory. This is an exercise that I do with my one-on-one clients and works beautifully. When they find they are struggling, they whip out their list and aim to do 2-3 things on that list. If, afterwards they still want that food, I give them full permission to eat it as long as they....</span>\r\n\r\n<span data-verified=\"redactor\" data-redactor-tag=\"span\" data-redactor-style=\"font-size: 16px;\">5. <strong data-redactor-tag=\"strong\">Eat mindfully and own the decision</strong>! Put the said food on a plate or in a bowl. Sit down at the table and close your eyes. Take 2-3 deep breaths to get your body in a relaxation response and aim to chew 10-15 times before swallowing. Notice how your body feels before, during and after each bite. Put your fork down between bites. Enjoy and savor it!</span>\r\n\r\nLet me know which of these you try and how it helps!\r\n\r\nIn the meantime, continue the healing by downloading my 6-part video training on ending emotional eating.\r\n<div style=\"display: none;\"><img src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/5-ways-pinterest.jpg\" /></div>\";s:10:\"post_title\";s:45:\"5 Ways to Improve your Relationship with Food\";s:12:\"post_excerpt\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_status\";s:7:\"publish\";s:14:\"comment_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:11:\"ping_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:13:\"post_password\";s:0:\"\";s:9:\"post_name\";s:32:\"5-ways-improve-relationship-food\";s:7:\"to_ping\";s:0:\"\";s:6:\"pinged\";s:0:\"\";s:13:\"post_modified\";s:19:\"2017-01-09 16:19:14\";s:17:\"post_modified_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-01-09 21:19:14\";s:21:\"post_content_filtered\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_parent\";i:0;s:4:\"guid\";s:36:\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/?p=1497\";s:10:\"menu_order\";i:0;s:9:\"post_type\";s:4:\"post\";s:14:\"post_mime_type\";s:0:\"\";s:13:\"comment_count\";s:1:\"0\";s:6:\"filter\";s:3:\"raw\";}i:1;O:7:\"WP_Post\":24:{s:2:\"ID\";i:1181;s:11:\"post_author\";s:1:\"1\";s:9:\"post_date\";s:19:\"2016-09-06 09:37:38\";s:13:\"post_date_gmt\";s:19:\"2016-09-06 13:37:38\";s:12:\"post_content\";s:6899:\"<a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/?attachment_id=1182\" rel=\"attachment wp-att-1182\"><img class=\"aligncenter size-full wp-image-1182\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Unhinge-your-Binge.jpg\" alt=\"unhinge your binge\" width=\"800\" height=\"800\" /></a>\r\n\r\nBinge is a term Americans use a lot with respect to food and drink and even with watching the latest streaming Netflicks series.  But I want to delve into and focus just on the topic of binge-eating in this article.  Just say the words \"Binge Eating\" aloud right now and many of you will cringe.  Why?  Because it\'s a term loaded with guilt, with shame and even with disgust even to those who have never binged in their lives.  Bingeing has extremely negative connotations and is oft-linked to people who are overweight, slovenly, and lazy - <span style=\"text-decoration: underline;\">this is simply not true</span>.\r\n\r\nNow, I\'m not saying that people who binge don\'t also happen to possess some or all of these characteristics as well, but the truth is that <span style=\"text-decoration: underline;\">anyone</span> can binge.  I have had women and men who have stepped into my office with whom you would never believe binge eat.  They are slim, they are active and they are professional in their lives and look completely in-control.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2>At least on the outside.</h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nMany people have this idea that binge-eating is about the quantity of food consumed in a period of time.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2>This is a myth.</h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nBinge-eating has nothing to do with the amount of food you are eating or even WHAT you are eating.  It has everything to do with compulsion and being in a stress response. It has to do with the polarities of tension and release and with feeling that food controls you versus the other way around.  Yes, so that means you can binge on apple sauce, or carrots or oatmeal just as much as with Doritos, ho-hos or hamburgers.  It is simply the feeling that you are not in control of those decisions and that you\'ve in some ways dissociated from your body and are on automatic, in full on unconscious eating mode.  Once it begins, many people don\'t reemerge into their bodies until it\'s over.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nBy then, you are filled with remorse, with shame and regret.  And it\'s too late.  And thus commences the age-old sequence of binge-remorse-restrict-repeat, a viscous cycle with no exit plan and no good solutions. Until now...\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1>It\'s time to completely Unhinge the Binge once and for all!</h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n[bctt tweet=\"It\'s time to completely Unhinge the Binge once and for all!\" username=\"coachjennyeden\"]\r\n\r\nMy upcoming 12 week course is a deep-dive in how to do just that.  My course encompasses binge-eating cessation techniques but also delves into so much more.\r\n\r\nI truly believe that this online course (<strong>with optional online or in-person group coaching</strong>) is a game-changer for anyone who struggles with binge eating, emotional eating or stress eating.

That’s it. I’m done.  I’m making a drastic change and it starts right now!” </span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">This vitriol-filled convo with myself always ended with one or more grandiose gestures and declarations like the ones below.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">“No sugar for 3 months!”  </span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">“Up my workouts to two hours a day”  </span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">“No eating after 6pm” </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">........and the list of good intentions (lies) continues.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">This is how a week looked like as a former desperate dejavu dieter.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2><strong>Day 1: </strong></h2>\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">My resolve is fresh and my will-power high.  Day 1 is perfect. I even eschew my daily sugar in my coffee for coconut oil and sip my way to caffeinated bliss.  Night time is not as easy but I get through by brushing my teeth and going to bed early to ignore the rumblings in my belly.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2><strong>Day 2 </strong></h2>\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Sucks with headaches, irritability and bubbles of resentment and worry creeping to the surface.  I shove them down and stay steely in my resolve. I chastise myself for eating at 6:02 but I take some deep breaths and move forward.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2><strong>Day 3 </strong></h2>\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">starts off great but slowly dissolves into a cornucopia food binge that includes gummy worms and Doritos by 2pm.  Why? Well, because I was late for work, became overwhelmed and stressed, got some bad news, felt a sniffle coming on, etc. and besides...I DESERVED those gummy worms after all of that.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I think you know how days 4 through 7 go after that.  (hint: down the tubes)</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">........And the angst and despair and frustration reemerge anew.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">The question remains however. </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Why do we do this?  Why do we make desperation declarations that only leave us feeling like complete failures mere days or weeks later?  Why do we make such black and white proclamations? Why do we set ourselves up this way to only fill us with dread and doubt for the next time we attempt the same tactics?</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">One reason is that we are a species that seeks pleasure and avoids pain.  That is hardwired into our DNA for survival. Add stress, discomfort and/or overwhelm to the mix and the the results are the same -<strong>    ::wheels, spun::  </strong></span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">In fact Albert Einstein had a quote that encapsulates this phenomenon.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2><strong>“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.”</strong></h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">We BELIEVE this time will be different, that our resolve is stronger, that our will-power is intact.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">What we don’t realize, however, is that we’re looking at the entirely wrong path to begin with.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Ask yourself what your true desires are.  What is the deep wish or desire or feeling you want to fulfill that you believe dieting, restricting and/or attaining a smaller body will provide for you.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2><strong>Make a list right now.</strong></h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Ok, next start asking yourself how you can feel and experience and fulfill those most soulful and deep wishes without changing anything about your body.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Finally, start taking action on those exact things.  Let dieting go, just for the time being. It doesn’t have to be forever but just for right now.  We’re looking at getting your end result right from the beginning, without any bullying, restricting and self-loathing tactics to get you there.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I am not discounting or undermining the fact that you may feel very uncomfortable in your clothes, doing the things you used to enjoy or even being in your own skin.  I truly understand that and have the same motives as you - get you to feel better, but maybe by turning what you’ve always done (or thought you had to do) to achieve that.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">So, let’s pick one item from that desire list.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">EXAMPLE:  </span></h2>\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Desire #1 that often leads to grandiose gestures such as forbidding sugar or other foods from ever entering your mouth again.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<em><strong>“I just want to feel good in my skin again”</strong></em>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Ok, great.  That’s the desire statement.  But with each desire statement you create, question whether losing weight is the ONLY way for you to achieve that.  (you may truly believe it is, but with further inquiry may see lots of other paths to feel good in your skin)</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Your former response to the pain of NOT feeling that way:  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Diet starts tomorrow, no sugar, exercise an hour more per day, etc.</span></h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><strong>NEW</strong> response to this valid pain:  I will find a new kind of exercise that I love.  I will add in 1 extra apple per day for the fiber, which makes me feel good.  I’ll start meditating and going out in nature more like I used to do”</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">See the difference?  Some or all of these behaviors MAY lead to weight loss but more importantly, some or all of these may reach the deeper desire of feeling good in your skin.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">One is a to-do, positive and measurable approach to test out and see how it feels.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">The other is a desperation tactic born out of the belief that we are broken and need to be fixed immediately.  Any belief or behavior born out of stress and not-good-enoughness will end up being a temporary change. </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Trust me on that.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Because, while we want that quick fix so badly and our dieting culture is predicated on YOU believing that you are broken;  that you will not get what you want until or unless you take steps that literally abuses your body and wrestles your appetite to the ground until you eventually either ignore the signals, forget what those signals feel like in the first place or ricochet the other direction by dissolving into a 3-day long binge creating more angst and distress than you had in the first place.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">The time is now to stop this dangerous and soul-crushing <a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/dejavu-dieting\">deja-vu dieting</a>.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I can’t promise you a quick-fix.  I can’t promise exterior transformations.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I CAN promise you peace, freedom and uncovering the steps to the utmost joyful relationship with food and body you’ve ever had.  Imagine having everything you’ve ever wanted. </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">That can be you. </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">But you have to get rid of the timelines and urgency. </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> Take the slow, soulful and ultimately sustainable path with me instead.  I promise you won’t regret it.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Sign up for your <a href=\"https://jennyedencoaching.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php\">free 30-minute eating exploration call</a> with me today.</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<div style=display:none;><img src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/Copy-of-detective.png\"></div>\";s:10:\"post_title\";s:49:\"No more Sugar!

Like a yo-yo, his or her weight increases almost automatically, and decreases again through a lot of effort, over and over again throughout adult life. Do you know what precedes a yo-yo dieter though?\r\n\r\nYou guessed – it’s a ping-pong dieter. If you’re confused – read on.\r\n\r\nMany of us fall into two categories when it comes to eating. It’s “All” or “Nothing”. You are either in major restriction mode – trying to get ready for bikini season or a big event or you’re in a “What the $%#@!” mode and eating whatever you please, when you please.\r\n\r\nAfter more than 14 years of working with people with disordered eating and weight challenges, I see this pattern over an over again more than anything else. The problem with ping-pong dieting threefold:\r\n\r\n1. Restriction will almost always eventually lead to binging. The very idea of restriction for some makes certain foods even more enticing. Will power is an expendable resource and a fickle friend!\r\n\r\n2. Restriction puts your body into a stress response mode. Your body wants to protect you so when you finally give up the restriction – your leptin levels may drop (hunger inhibiting hormone) making you ravenous and your set-point (the weight your body naturally wants to gravitate towards) will go higher making your heroic efforts at weight loss more and more frustrating each time around.\r\n\r\n3. Restriction leads to hunger – hunger is a signal that your blood sugar is dropping and you need fuel. When you ignore your internal body cues, you are bullying your body. Your body will not respond in kind! As I mentioned before, your body perceives restriction as a stress response, and thus increases the stress hormones in your body at a chronic low level. These stress hormones, like cortisol and insulin don’t recede entirely as they would in a real fight or flight response (i.e. a bear is chasing you), but stick around leading to a decrease in muscle tissue growth, increase of fat storage (to prepare for the famine) and inflammation in the body.\r\n\r\nBottom line. You may think you’re doing the right thing by severely restricting your calories. After all, you will lose weight fast! But in fact, you are setting in motion a lifetime of difficulty losing weight and increasing your chances of becoming a yo-yo dieter.\r\n\r\nStop playing ping-pong and find a beautiful dimmer switch in the middle ground. Stop the black and white thinking and enjoy <a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/50-shades-of-gray-for-black-and-white-thinkers\">50 shades of grey</a>. Start by trying a kind and gentle approach to weight loss. Try respecting your body into weight loss instead of bullying it there. Besides, there are way more games to play than ping-pong and yo-yos right? Scrabble, anyone?\r\n\r\nWant more information about working with me one-on-one?

In our fast-paced, fast-food obsessed culture, there are ample opportunities at any given time for us to overeat beyond what our bodies need.

 

Examples:

 

You’re given a larger portion at a restaurant than you need

Your nice neighbor drops off some baked goods at your house

There are samples at Starbucks

There is a candy jar at the bank

 

Look around and you’ll notice dozens of examples of our culture doling out spontaneous food opportunities at every corner just begging us to veer off our eating track and having us bush wack our way back to structure.  I don’t know about you but I never see green beans at the checkout aisle at a supermarket as an option for our spontaneous end-of-shopping impulse buy selection.  There is no brussel sprout hut drive-thru on our way home from work.  No oranges and hard boiled eggs in the vending machine at work.

 

Look, we know that we often eat when we’re sad, when we’re bored, when we’re stressed or for no reason at all.

But at a certain point we will have to face that our food culture is also a big part of the reason we overeat. At the very least it puts land mines in our way to create more obstacles to make it happen consistently.  Food manufacturers create processed foods designed specifically to hit the “bliss point” whereby we literally can’t say no, and continue to crave certain foods throughout the day. (i.e. foods that are processed, fat, salt and sugar-laden or all of the above) Commercials are relentless in their luring us to order a late night pizza or drive to the local CVS for a pint of ice cream.

 

We blame ourselves for our lack of control, our lack of will power and our shame fuels urgency to make quick yet unsustainable changes that are fleeting at best only to leave us back where we started: frustrated, exhausted and hopeless.

 

When we recognize that this is a pervasive societal issue, it can take some of the burden off of ourselves from a moral perspective and resign ourselves to being “undisciplined.”  When we realize what we’re up against we can move from shame to problem solving and action.

 

So, think about it for a minute.  We’re stressed, we’re over-busy, we’re overcommitted and distracted and we already turn to food to provide more for us than what it possibly can give us.  On top of that, the types of balanced, healthy and nutrient dense foods that our bodies truly crave and need are not as easy to find!

What I’m saying is…. of course we’re overeating!

 

It’s not shocking when the types of foods that food companies dole out to us are the very foods that keep us in craving and false fix mode.  In turn our bodies don’t send out the correct messaging to our brains that we’re full or satisfied and we continue to eat more and more of it.  We have to wade through landmines or burn holes in our wallets just to get to a whole foods or a farmers market for some healthy food.

 

So what can be done?

1. Stay aware.  Start to notice the ways our food culture pushes unhealthy and unbalanced food options.

 

2. Plan plan plan.  Create a roadmap of the day and anticipate challenges like back-to-back work meetings or a long drive home by pre-making some healthy snacks.

 

3. Practice mindful eating.  Start to notice how certain foods make your body feel and which ones give you pleasure and energy. Try my free 7-day mindful eating course to start.

 

4. Join a CSA – support local agriculture and guarantee yourself weekly fresh produce to eat raw or to cook with.

 

5. Be forgiving of yourself – overeating is not a moral issue.  Take each eating opportunity as a way to reset and make the choice that is best for you in that moment given your circumstances.

 

6. Reach out for help.  Join my newsletter or sign up for 1:1 coaching with me and together we can help you create a healing, pleasurable and sustainable relationship with food.

 

There continues to be many reasons we tend to eat more than our bodies need, many of which were not even discussed in this article.  But we’d be remiss not to point out our culture’s complicit role in this phenomena and the irony that it’s the very same culture that dictates that we do whatever we need to do to remain in smaller bodies (even drastic, dangerous methods) and food and body shame women daily.  The more we continue to be aware and proactive in our healthy pursuits, practice them daily and find efficiencies to support these endeavors the easier it will become over time.

    This is so true. One of the other problems we face is we are social beings and want to fit in,so when at social gatherings processed food and treats tend to go hand in hand,so we want to “fit” in so we tend to eat and over eat at social gatherings, it sucks.
