And this is a fairly new phenomenon for me.</h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nYou see, If she had asked me in the past to do this I would have prepared for 2 weeks ahead by exercising even more than usual and basically starving myself for the same amount of time, just to give myself permission to partake in a little bit of the buffet.  I\'d be very judicious about what I would choose and would deny myself more than I\'d allow indulgences.  I\'d feel scared and guilty the whole time and worry about the consequences showing up a few days later on the scale.  I\'d be missing out on the entire experience with my daughter and just living in my head.\r\n\r\nI believed that even just looking at the buffet would turn me into a weight gain machine and I would avoid those situations at almost any cost.  I would not be excited for it but instead would be worried and mistrusting in myself that I could handle it and not overeat or binge.\r\n\r\nI recently learned one of the reasons why we always have room for dessert.  It has to do with sensory specific satiety.  As humans, our taste buds are actually quite sensitive and can saturate very quickly thereby leading us to continue eating in the false hope that our 30th bite will be as powerful, exciting and rewarding as our first.  It\'s just not possible.  And we actually need a refractory period before we can garner flavor bombs again inside our mouths.\r\n\r\nOne of the things that makes buffets so exciting, however, is the variety it can bring us.  The only thing that can regenerate our taste buds or have them respond at all after a period of time of eating is to introduce a new flavor component to the mix: something salty, sweet, bitter, sour, hot or savory.  This is one of the reasons why we always have room for dessert, even after a big meal.  Our taste buds are ripe for a new, sweet flavor after a savory meal and there can be a small jolt again in our gustatory region (mouths).  Alas, that too is short-lived and we will continue in vein to recapture the delight of that first 1 or two bites.\r\n\r\nSo, back to this Chocolate buffet.... Wanna see what we were facing?\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_2159\" align=\"alignleft\" width=\"480\"]<img class=\"wp-image-2159 size-full\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/choc-buffet.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"480\" height=\"640\" /> Donuts, Chocolate fountain and custards.[/caption]\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_2161\" align=\"alignleft\" width=\"225\"]<img class=\"wp-image-2161 size-medium\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/choco-buffet-3-225x300.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"225\" height=\"300\" /> Fruit Loop Panna Cotta![/caption]\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_2162\" align=\"alignleft\" width=\"480\"]<img class=\"wp-image-2162 size-full\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/wall-of-donuts.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"480\" height=\"640\" /> Behold...the Wall of Donuts.[/caption]\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nBut, because I\'m now a relaxed and empowered eater, here\'s how I managed it.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h3>1. I honored my body and appetite by eating a macro-nutrient balanced lunch before going</h3>\r\n<h3>2. I checked out all the offerings <a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/psychology-buffets\">at the buffet</a> before grabbing a plate so I could be clear and judicious about what I put on it so I\'d make sure I\'d truly enjoy it.</h3>\r\n<h3>3. I kept an abundance mindset and did not feel <a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/food-fomo\">food FOMO</a> because I knew it was all available to me.</h3>\r\n<h3>4. I ate very slowly and mindfully allowing my mouth and tongue to truly notice and savor the flavors</h3>\r\n<h3>5. I checked in with my body and noticed when my taste buds were saturated and stopped when my body gave me the cues to stop</h3>\r\n<h3></h3>\r\nIt was a glorious experience!  I got to taste many different things and enjoyed every second of it but I also trusted myself to stop when I was sated and full and not go beyond that.  I didn\'t have to go beyond it because these foods are available to me any time I want.  I no longer and refuse to ever place arbitrary food rules and subjective portions on myself again.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nAnd it\'s made all the difference.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nWho wants to experience a freedom and peace around food like that?  Check out <a href=\"https://jennyedencoaching.lpages.co/services/\"><span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">my new 1:1 6-week Eating Empowerment Coaching package</span></a>.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;<div style=display:none;><img src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/stale-cookies-1.png\"></div>\r\n\";s:10:\"post_title\";s:45:\"Emotional Eater to Empowered Eater in 5 steps\";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:39:\"emotional-eater-empowered-eater-5-steps\";s:7:\"to_ping\";s:0:\"\";s:6:\"pinged\";s:48:\"\nhttp://jennyedencoaching.com/psychology-buffets\";s:13:\"post_modified\";s:19:\"2018-01-09 10:25:33\";s:17:\"post_modified_gmt\";s:19:\"2018-01-09 15:25:33\";s:21:\"post_content_filtered\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_parent\";i:0;s:4:\"guid\";s:36:\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/?p=2158\";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:1677;s:11:\"post_author\";s:1:\"1\";s:9:\"post_date\";s:19:\"2017-03-28 10:18:08\";s:13:\"post_date_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-03-28 14:18:08\";s:12:\"post_content\";s:5362:\"&nbsp;\r\n<h1><a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Do-you-have-Food-FOMO-1.jpg\"><img class=\"aligncenter size-full wp-image-1681\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Do-you-have-Food-FOMO-1.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"940\" height=\"788\" /></a></h1>\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">FOMO = Fear of missing out</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<u>What is food FOMO?</u>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nFOMO = Fear of missing out\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nThis is something we often refer to in terms of missing a fun event or party with friends.  We hate the feeling that we were not there for something important, something epic, something fun, where memories were made and friendships created.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nBut did you know that we also experience food FOMO?\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nDespite rampant hunger and malnutrition around the globe, many Americans, on the other hand, are bombarded with vast amounts of food variety that showers us daily in supermarket aisles, restaurants and buffets.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nBecause we are a species that values and seeks out variety, we feel compelled to partake in it all, lest we miss out on anything.   Food FOMO also leads us to overeating past the point of what our bodies need or want, causing angst, physical ailments and overall malaise.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nThis fear of missing out related to food can stem from many different reasons:\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<u>Familial Origins</u>\r\n\r\nI’ve worked with clients who came from large families with 6 or more siblings and if you weren’t fast and furious with your eating and grabbed what you could, you’d miss out on dinner.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<u>Cultural Origins</u>\r\n\r\nFood FOMO can also be lasting vestiges due to cultural factors that shaped our relationship with food:  The Holocaust survivor’s children as well as those who experienced the Great Depression were taught to finish their plates and appreciate all food which was scarce, in order to prepare for a potential famine. While we now enjoy a relatively stable economy, there are many thousands who go to bed hungry, even here in America. But this doesn’t diminish the fact that for many, food FOMO is a real anxiety that is also often the precursor for eating rapidly, overeating, binge eating and developing a disordered relationship with food.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<u>Chronic Dieting Origins</u>\r\n\r\nIf you have spent a good part of your life yo-yo dieting, you know that there is often self-prescribed scarcity just around the corner.  You had better take part in all the variety of ice cream at the sundae bar because come Monday you’re off to the races with the restriction of your next diet.  And, if there is a real or perceived belief that there is or will be scarcity of food, this only serves to create more anxiety when faced with an abundance of choices.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nThis is why we can feel elated yet overwhelmed at the 15,000 choices of chips in the chips aisle at the supermarket, and why our eyes are often bigger than our bellies at an <a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/psychology-buffets\">all-you-can-eat buffet</a>.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nOne way to deal with food FOMO is to build in mindfulness and mindful eating practices.  When you can slow down, invite gratitude for your food, appreciate where it came from and intellectually process the fact that this food fortunately will always be available to you, you can begin to have a more relaxed approach towards food.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nExamples of places where food FOMO may occur:\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">Buffets</span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">Events where hors d\'oeuvres are passed</span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">Family holidays</span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">Fast food establishments</span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">Seasonal items at Trader Joe\'s</span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">Free samples offered at banks, Starbucks etc.</span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">Restaurants with vast menu items</span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">Meals that have a lot of “fixings” like a potato bar, ice cream sundae bar, or BBQ.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nTry asking yourselves these questions next time you’re faced with food FOMO:\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<ol>\r\n <li>Is this a real or perceived food scarcity?</li>\r\n <li>Is your body physically hungry right now?</li>\r\n <li>What is driving your decision to eat right now?</li>\r\n <li>Is this food readily available to me or is this a special or seasonal food that only comes around once in awhile?</li>\r\n <li>Am I stuck in dieting mentality right now, which is telling me to restrict calories or limit what foods I eat?</li>\r\n</ol>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nQuestion your food FOMO and recite mantras that keep you in “abundance” mindset instead of “scarcity” mindset.  Mantras might include: “I place no restrictions on myself around food therefore this food will always be available to me”, or “I will listen to my body and trust that I will know when I’ve had enough to eat”.  Feel free to pick your own incantation that makes sense for you but be sure to have an empowering, reassuring slant to it to assuage you of your food FOMO.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nWhen have you experienced food FOMO?  How have you dealt with it?  Sound off below!\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<div style=display:none;><img src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/food-fomo.png\"></div>\";s:10:\"post_title\";s:22:\"Do you have Food FOMO?\";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:9:\"food-fomo\";s:7:\"to_ping\";s:0:\"\";s:6:\"pinged\";s:48:\"\nhttp://jennyedencoaching.com/psychology-buffets\";s:13:\"post_modified\";s:19:\"2017-03-28 11:57:21\";s:17:\"post_modified_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-03-28 15:57:21\";s:21:\"post_content_filtered\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_parent\";i:0;s:4:\"guid\";s:36:\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/?p=1677\";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:2;O:7:\"WP_Post\":24:{s:2:\"ID\";i:1091;s:11:\"post_author\";s:1:\"1\";s:9:\"post_date\";s:19:\"2016-07-11 07:20:44\";s:13:\"post_date_gmt\";s:19:\"2016-07-11 11:20:44\";s:12:\"post_content\";s:7346:\"<a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/psychology-buffets/the-psychology-of-buffets-and-3-types-buffet-eaters-to-watch-out-for\" rel=\"attachment wp-att-1092\"><img class=\"aligncenter size-full wp-image-1092\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/The-Psychology-of-Buffets-and-3-types-buffet-eaters-to-watch-out-for.jpg\" alt=\"Buffet Psychology\" width=\"940\" height=\"788\" /></a>\r\n\r\nBuffets are a psycho-social food experiment which is ripe for analysis in order to determine who we are as eaters. Sometimes, the overwhelming abundance, variety and tantalizing presentation of foods can override our good judgment. For some of us, such a wealth of choices brings out primitive urges for excess in preparation for feast or famine.\r\n\r\nI remember visiting Las Vegas about ten years ago with my husband. We were absolutely dumbstruck by the vast array of buffet options. These were not just buffets; they were MEGA-buffets, which were overwhelming. Yet, ten years later my husband still prods us to go to all-you-can-eat Chinese buffets to take advantage of these low-cost plentiful food choices.\r\n\r\nThere is a poignant scene in the book Unbroken when the freed POW soldiers, after months of starvation, are being airdropped tons and tons of food. Even for them, at a certain point, they had to say “Enough! It’s too much. “\r\n\r\nScarcity vs. abundance: this kind of polarized thinking affects many of our lives. It is one of the reasons we become black-and-white thinkers regarding food. We’re either in restriction and diet mode or we’re bingeing and indulging to our hearts’ delight. The most common thing I have heard throughout my fourteen years as a Health Coach is how my clients cannot find this middle ground, or to control their “dimmer switch”.\r\n\r\nAs an Eating Psychology Coach, I observe eating events, such as buffets, with an analytical eye. My observations indicate that people approach buffets in three distinct ways:\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2>1. <span style=\"text-decoration: underline;\">The grab-a-plate and go-to-town type </span></h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nThis individual embodies the typical, “our eyes are bigger than our stomachs” cliché by sampling a little of everything in the line with little pause for judicious and careful choices. This individual is delighted at the array of food, the fact that it’s “all you can eat” for x amount of dollars and wants to take advantage of every last bite. Food is extremely important to the grab-a plate type and there is a constant fear of scarcity, even amid huge buffets (after all, they might run out of Beef Wellington!).\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2>2. <span style=\"text-decoration: underline;\">The casually-walk-down the-line, observe-the-food-categories and offerings, and then carefully-decide-in-advance-what-to-eat type</span></h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nThis individual is analytical in nature. He or she likes to plan in advance and make sensible, balanced and methodical choices when it comes to food. You might find this person adding just a few choice items onto his or her plate and eating slowing, happily enjoying every bite. This person loves food, but is not controlled by it and can easily choose the foods they find most delightful and nourishing. He or she often orders the made-to-order omelette, and doesn’t mind the wait.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2>3. <span style=\"text-decoration: underline;\">The “I’m on a diet” buffet type</span></h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nThis type agonizes before heading to a buffet (and might not go at all). He or she wants everything on that damned line, but uses sheer will to fight the Belgian waffle demons. You’ll find this person clenching her plate to begin the line, peering under lids only to be sad and disgusted when confronted with hollandaise sauce or some other heavy, rich food. He or she will sadly but boldly walk over to the salad bar and fruit section of the buffet, scantly fill a plate and then return to the waiter to request steamed salmon along with a diet coke.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"text-decoration: underline;\">Other lesser-known but significant buffet types:</span>\r\n<h3>1. The “I won’t touch the ladle that every other person in line has just touched” type.</h3>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nThis person may wear gloves or keep “wet wipes” in his or her bag.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h3>2. The “Let’s just go for dessert first” type</h3>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n(self-explanatory).\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h3>3. <span style=\"text-decoration: underline;\">The “Cranky eye-rolling, hate-waiting-in-line-for-this delicious-food” type</span></h3>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nThis person begrudgingly goes to a buffet but will bristle at the wait for that annoying person in front of him who can’t seem to get the correct pepper-to-lettuce ratio on the plate, but nevertheless keeps trying valiantly. When this cranky individual finally reaches the salad, he notices the tongs are sticky and this further irritates him (or her).\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h3>4. The “I-never-learned-to-share” type</h3>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nThis person will push and shove anyone out of his or her way to get that last Danish or final piece of chocolate cake, leaving even 6-year olds crying in his or her wake.\r\n\r\nAs for me? I’m probably a hybrid but more closely lean towards #1. Buffets in general stress me out and bring me decision anxiety. Stress with food = no bueno. So, I’ll usually try to opt out whenever possible. Of course, being a vegetarian also adds an additional challenge to the situation – but I do enjoy watching other people at buffets. Next time you’re at a buffet, let me know which types you notice. Any types I missed? Do tell!\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nAnd by the way…which type are you? Let me know in the comments below!\r\n\r\nPS.

Have you ever chastised yourself for breathing too much or annoyed that you have to breathe so heavy after exerting yourself?\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1>No, I didn’t think so.</h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nWe take for granted and accept that breathing is a process in our bodies that we do without thinking and helps to naturally protect us and keep us alive.\r\n\r\nWhen then, do we spend so much time making our appetites wrong? Why do we spend so much time trying to reduce, change, ignore, berate and <a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/stop-bullying-your-body\">bully our hunger</a> and appetites when this too is a natural, intrinsic process that every human being possesses to help us stay alive and thrive.\r\n\r\nUnlike your appetite, you can go about your day and not really think about breathing so much except if you’re under water or are in the throes of a panic attack, or meditating. We accept that the quality of our breathe will change depending on the environment or circumstance.\r\n\r\nBut, when it comes to our appetites, we seem to operate from a separate set of rules.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nHave you ever said to yourself or done one of the following?\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2>It’s not lunchtime yet, so even though I’m hungry I’ll just wait.</h2>\r\n<h2>I’m full but this food is free so…</h2>\r\n<h2>Darn, I shouldn’t be hungry again already!</h2>\r\n<h2>Ugh, why am I starving all the time?</h2>\r\n<h2>(insert nutritional or diet expert name here) said to wait 4 hours before each meal and snack so even though I’m starving, I’m going to distract myself until it’s time.</h2>\r\n<h2>I’m stuffed! Oh wait...look at that pie she’s serving.</h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nThe bottom line is that we think we know better than our bodies when it comes to hunger and appetite and thus try to manipulate and control the signs and signals it gives you or ignore them all together.\r\n\r\nThis sets up a cascade of longer term problems because if you ignore your body enough, it will begin not to trust you and inherently create processes to protect you. It will do things like:\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h2>Decrease muscle tissue growth to save energy.</h2>\r\n<h2>Increase fat storage (in case a famine is coming).</h2>\r\n<h2>Lower your leptin levels making you starving all the time in order to force you to eat.</h2>\r\n<h2>Increase stress hormones like norepinephrine, cortisol and adrenaline which keep your body in a low-level stress response daily and keeps you even further from really understanding and accepting your hunger.</h2>\r\n<h2>Create inflammation in your body which makes you hold on to weight and makes it even harder to digest and assimilate the nutrients from food.</h2>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nIgnoring your hunger is like holding your breath. You can only do it for so long before you start panicking and operating from your reptilian brain to protect you (i.e. binging, overeating, making rash choices etc)\r\n\r\nI know food sometimes feels like the enemy and I know your appetite scares you frustrates and angers you sometimes because it seems to have a life of its own causing overeating, regret and fear.\r\n\r\nBut the truth is that your appetite is there to protect you. Your body only wants you to feel amazing and thrive. We’re getting in our own way. And we can stop doing it.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1>How?</h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<ul>\r\n <li>Slow down and listen to your body cues</li>\r\n <li>Eat with intention and bring curiosity to why the hunger and cravings are there now.</li>\r\n <li>Trust, respect and communicate with your body.</li>\r\n <li>Make your body right and act accordingly.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nWant to learn more about how to become a mindful, intuitive and empowered eater?\r\n\r\nPlease watch this masterclass on how to go from an Empowered to Emotional Eater and learn to love your appetite as a divine sign of your aliveness and ability to make choices that are loving, nurturing and removed of food fear and guilt.\r\n\r\n<link href=\"//events.genndi.com/assets/css/register_button.css\" rel=\"stylesheet\"><div style=\"margin:auto;width:300px;\"><div class=\"embedded-joinwebinar-button\"><button type=\"button\" class=\"btn btn-default css3button\" title=\"regpopbox_818182175026320359_41ba7f1402\"><span>Register now</span></button></div></div><script src=\"//events.genndi.com/register.evergreen.extra.js\" language=\"javascript\" type=\"text/javascript\" async></script><img src=\"//events.genndi.com/tracker?action=registration-evergreen&webicode=41ba7f1402&version=&memberid=818182175026320359\" style=\"visibility:hidden; height:0px; width:0px; border:none;”>\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n<div style=\"display: none;\"><img src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/breathing.png\"/></div>\";s:10:\"post_title\";s:47:\"What breathing and your appetite have in common\";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:47:\"what-breathing-and-your-appetite-have-in-common\";s:7:\"to_ping\";s:0:\"\";s:6:\"pinged\";s:53:\"\nhttp://jennyedencoaching.com/stop-bullying-your-body\";s:13:\"post_modified\";s:19:\"2018-08-05 13:09:52\";s:17:\"post_modified_gmt\";s:19:\"2018-08-05 17:09:52\";s:21:\"post_content_filtered\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_parent\";i:0;s:4:\"guid\";s:36:\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/?p=2490\";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:158;s:13:\"comment_count\";i:0;s:15:\"current_comment\";i:-1;s:11:\"found_posts\";s:2:\"32\";s:13:\"max_num_pages\";d:8;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:\"bac0937ddcd4fddb835439069bfa74f5\";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`)

food rebel

 

I remember very clearly being an 8-year old little girl who ate when she was hungry and stopped when she was full.  I remember not thinking anything was particularly different about me.

 

One day, I was invited to a friends house for dinner.  She served a lovely meal and even marveled at my ability to taste and appreciate complex flavors.  My palate was wide open. I was not a pizza and mac and cheese only kind of girl. (although that was great too)

 

I stopped eating when I was full and put my fork down.  I’ll never forget what my friends mom said to me next. “You usually eat a lot more than this right?  Are you sure you’re done?”

 

Now maybe I was hypersensitive back then but I clearly remember being confused and hurt.  Was she commenting on my appetite and making presumptions based on my size? I couldn’t make sense of it as an 8 year old but it always stuck with me because it was one of the first times when I was given pause about my size perception to others and thus started being acutely aware of it myself.

 

It’s these little, sometimes seemingly innocuous comments about our bodies, our appetites or way of eating that little-by-little make an impact on us and fuels our desires to diet obsessively to “fit in” or over-exercise or question our worth based on our ravenousness or weight.

 

As I write about in my book, The Body Image Blueprint, I recall another describing another incident when upon watching my mom throw out an entire roll of cookie dough, I gingerly reached into the garbage, when no one was looking and happily hid and ate the cookie dough in my room for a week.  I knew it was rebellious, I knew I was being sneaky but I did it anyway.

 

Why?

 

Because I got the message that certain foods were “good” and certain foods were “bad.”  If I wanted the “bad” foods then certainly it meant that something was wrong with me and that I was bad somehow. Now I realize that of course I wanted those bad foods, we all do!  Because of the culture we live in, those foods are hugely abundant and cheap and delicious, lighting up the reward centers in our brain which cause us to seek more and more of it. Plus we’re biologically hard-wired to want sweet, salty and fatty foods.  And yet we still moralize and judge ourselves and others.

 

If we believe all of the above is true and yet we still seek out, eat and crave those foods then we have a dilemma on our hands.  Psychologically, we perceive that WE are bad or wrong in wanting those foods and thereby sneak them to enjoy them and sometimes we even act rebelliously around food just to give the middle finger to anyone who has ever shamed you for your appetite or made you feel gluttonous or wrong for eating certain foods.

 

Triggering phrases (from your past or even now) can include:

 

“Are you sure you want seconds?”

 

“You better watch it, that is really fattening”

 

“That’s enough, I don’t want you to get too full”

 

“10 nutrition experts describe foods they will NEVER touch!”  <<< magazine article headline

 

And there are many more.  These phrases came from our parents, our peers, our friend’s parents and they came from society at large.  The behemoth of judgement and shame is often too much and we begrudgingly comply with the arbitrary set of rules that have been thrusted upon us.

We start to listen externally rather than from within to make our food choices.  We lose trust in ourselves and we become resentful at the rules that dissuade pleasure with eating.

 

So what do we do?  We rebel!

 

We rebel by getting and eating the full pizza even though you know it might make you sick

 

We rebel by eating the ice cream even though we’re no longer hungry

 

We rebel by eating whatever and whenever we want as a radical departure from and a big F you to anyone who tried to cage us and box us into a certain way of eating.  

 

We do it even though it often ends up only causing us angst and maybe even physical distress.

 

My solution to this?  Slowly start to rid yourself of scarcity and morality mindset around food.  Start to see food as simply energy that has different consequences on our bodies and how we feel.  Start to listen to and trust that inner voice and try to drown out the ones of yesteryear or the experts that don’t personally know YOU and your own deep web of physical, emotional, familial, societal and biological stories.

 

The more abundant we feel around food, the less we feel called to rebel or binge or feel fear around food.  Think about it. If every single food was totally allowed and encouraged and celebrated, no matter what it is or its nutrient density, those foods would stop having a major pull and allure.  Sure, we may eat a ton of it in the beginning, just like a caged animal runs around and joyfully plays once freed. But, eventually the novelty wears and we can become grounded and start to make choices that truly fuel us, mind, body and soul.

 

One note about rebellion:  We all have a side of us that finds adventure and excitement at breaking the rules or doing something “naughty” or even out of character.  We’re a society contained by our many rules. Why else do we see so many political sexual scandals? Part of the excitement of these scandals is seeing what they can get away with and the fact that it’s not allowed or universally accepted.  It makes it feel more exciting, adventurous or even dangerous and we get a rush from that.

 

We get that also from food.

 

 

So, you can change the story here by making these types of food totally uneventful, available, and decidedly “not naughty” to take some of the allure out of it.  Couple that with allowing pleasure and awareness in the eating experience and owning the decision to eat them will help as well.

 

Lastly, because many (most?) of us have this “wild child” part of us, we need to find alternative ways to let him or her out in a way that is legal, socially acceptable yet still exciting.  When we allow ourselves to do this, once again, the need to do it with food becomes diminished.
