You can learn all the tips and tricks, but if you aren’t working on your thoughts you will continue to struggle with food.
Here are some thoughts that lead to binge eating:
“I weigh too much”
“I am a failure”
“I can’t trust myself around food”
“At this point, I’m never going to stop binge eating”
“I need to lose weight and eat perfectly”
“I need food to relax”
Do you see any of those thoughts showing up? Maybe you catch yourself thinking one of those thoughts, or perhaps all of them.
Let me know which ones you notice.
Why Thinking Makes a Difference
Those thoughts perpetuate the binge eating cycle. They lead you to restrict your food intake, not apply the tools that you know will help you stop binge eating or even give up on yourself! Ultimately, those thoughts are harming you. They are contributing to a disordered way of eating that is harmful to your physical and mental health.
How to Work on It…
Ask yourself some deep questions. Why do you keep binge eating? What are the thoughts that are contributing to the negative cycle?
Once you recognize the cause, you can start making positive changes!
The thing is, we are limited when we look at our brains. There is a lot of stuff we can’t see. That is why I still work with a coach even though I am an experienced and professionally trained coach.
So if you stuck in a binge eating cycle and you’re fed up, apply for 1-on-1 coaching! If you apply, there are no commitments or obligations, applying allows you to find out more. If you aren’t a good fit or aren’t ready to be coached 1-on-1 I will be able to direct you to other helpful resources.
