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:2136;s:11:\"post_author\";s:1:\"1\";s:9:\"post_date\";s:19:\"2017-12-20 18:08:00\";s:13:\"post_date_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-12-20 23:08:00\";s:12:\"post_content\";s:5206:\"<img class=\"aligncenter wp-image-2137 size-medium\" title=\"Why we eat stale cookies\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Why-youeat-the-cookies....even-when-theyre-stale-300x300.png\" alt=\"stake cookies - why we still eat them\" width=\"300\" height=\"300\" />\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nHave you ever taken a bite of something you have been eagerly anticipating to eat and much to your disappointment it doesn\'t taste good at all?  Have you ever then continued to eat the said food item IN SPITE of the fact that it didn\'t taste good.  Have you ever then chastised yourself for eating something, beyond what your body needed or wanted despite it not tasting good?\r\n\r\nIf so - you are definitely in good company.\r\n\r\nWhy do we do this?  What could possibly cause us to eat food or a meal that we literally find distasteful or flavorless or even stale?\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1>It\'s called Food Scarcity mindset.</h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/why-stop-dieting-tips\">Food scarcity mindset</a> is something that is internalized into our psyche at a young age.  It\'s often false and self-imposed.  Examples of false and self-imposed scarcity:\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n1. 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:1856;s:11:\"post_author\";s:1:\"1\";s:9:\"post_date\";s:19:\"2017-06-14 17:41:51\";s:13:\"post_date_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-06-14 21:41:51\";s:12:\"post_content\";s:5842:\"<img class=\"aligncenter size-medium wp-image-1859\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/1-reason-that-we-overeat-300x300.png\" alt=\"Reasons we overeat\" width=\"300\" height=\"300\" />\r\n\r\nIn our fast-paced, fast-food obsessed culture, there are ample opportunities at any given time for us to overeat beyond what our bodies need.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1>Examples:</h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2>You\'re given a larger portion at a restaurant than you need</h2>\r\n<h2>Your nice neighbor drops off some baked goods at your house</h2>\r\n<h2>There are samples at Starbucks</h2>\r\n<h2>There is a candy jar at the bank</h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nLook 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.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nLook, we know that we often eat when we\'re sad, when we\'re bored, when we\'re stressed or for no reason at all.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n[bctt tweet=\"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. \" username=\"coachjennyeden\"]\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nBut 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.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nWe 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.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nWhen 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.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nSo, 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!\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1>What I\'m saying is.... of course we\'re overeating!</h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nIt\'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.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1>So what can be done?</h1>\r\n1. Stay aware.  Start to notice the ways our food culture pushes unhealthy and unbalanced food options.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n2. 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 <span style=\"color: #ff0000;\"><a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/healthy-hurry\">healthy snacks</a>.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n3. Practice mindful eating.  Start to notice how certain foods make your body feel and which ones give you pleasure and energy.

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\";}}s:10:\"post_count\";i:4;s:12:\"current_post\";i:-1;s:11:\"in_the_loop\";b:0;s:4:\"post\";r:162;s:13:\"comment_count\";i:0;s:15:\"current_comment\";i:-1;s:11:\"found_posts\";s:2:\"11\";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:\"905826b5223d411856d2ec4846ddfeda\";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`)

broccoli hoarder

Allow me recreate the scene for you.

I 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.

I 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&ms and pizza-eating for a week.

Make no mistake that THIS is what dieting culture does to us.

So, 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)

We 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.

I ordered an ample oversized serving of broccoli, a salad with no dressing and a potato. (mmm, indulgence at it’s highest, not)

Then the unexpected happened.

My husband was happily eating his salmon with rice, a roll with lots of butter and a fried appetizer that had come earlier.

And then he said the dreaded 7 words.

“Can I have some of your broccoli?”

Now, 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.

“NO! Come on! Get your own order of broccoli,” I replied angrily. “This is the only $%#ing thing I can eat dude!”

I was HOARDING MY BROCCOLI, ya’ll.

 

Seriously, I needed an intervention!

My 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.

Sadly, it wasn’t until years later when I finally abandoned dieting for good and adopted mindful and intuitive eating 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.

We 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!

I’ll admit it now. Yes, I was obnoxious and stingy and dieting made me do it!

And for what? For the high honor of being in a smaller body?  To get the applause and accolades of my co-workers and friends? To prove something to myself? Whatever it was, I’ll tell you this:

It wasn’t worth it.

If you relate to this story in any way, I want to invite you to learn more about how you too can achieve food freedom.

I put together a mini-course for you on 6 Steps to Food Freedom and it’s DIRT CHEAP.

Your investment? Only $19. <<<<< no brainer

Go grab it here and let’s all resolve to share our broccoli and so much more with our loved ones.

Thanks for reading and have a fabulous week you guys!

Lots of love,

Jenny (the reformed broccoli-hoarder)
