Picture this: You wrap up a long day of work, finish up dinner, clean up, do a few things around the house and then finally sit down to unwind. As soon as your butt hits the couch, the thought pops in your head, ‘Before you get comfortable go grab a snack or two.’ So you get up, walk into the kitchen and you start grazing. First Ben and Jerry’s calls your name. Then the bag of chips, followed by the cookies. You just finished dinner so deep down you realize you aren’t hungry but for some reason you can’t stop yourself from eating it all.
When you finally reunite with the couch, the guilt and shame start to set in. If only you had more willpower or discipline, right?
There have likely been some evenings where you didn’t even think about food and then other times you just couldn’t resist it. The food didn’t change, so what did?
How we eat is a symptom of feeling emotionally or physiologically at risk in some way. In order to end self-sabotage and experience sustainable change with your relationship with food, we need to understand why you eat when you aren’t hungry. You might have some ideas like when you’re sad, bored or angry but there’s likely more to it.
The next deep dive will take place in early 2023. If you'd like to be added to the wait list, provide your details below.Add me to the list!
I knew that emotions factored into my eating - I just didn’t really understand which emotions or why and I certainly didn’t know how to fix it. After working with Laura, I feel EMPOWERED even at my lowest point. I know that everything is a choice and I can choose wisely with self-compassion and without starving or suffering.~Annie
