EP. #157: Ending the Cycle of Overeating
Manage episode 301781250 series 2122070
Do you know why people gain weight?
Overeating. Yep. There’s no escaping that fact!
What I mean by the word "overeating" is when you give your body more food than it needs to support your natural, healthy weight.
There are two ways you can overeat: 1. Keep eating until you're overly full or stuffed, or 2. Start eating when you aren't hungry.
Both are overeating because either way, you’re giving your body food that it doesn’t need and will store as fat.
Overeating every now and then isn’t a big deal. Everybody does it occasionally.
But if you are someone who feels like you can’t stop overeating, and you do it regularly, whether it’s a few times a week, every day or every time you eat, then it’s very likely that you’ve gained more weight than is healthy or comfortable for you.
Why do you do it? I’m willing to guess that there’s a lot more to it than that you love food.
You can love food and not overeat it. I know because I love food and used to overeat it, but don’t anymore, and I bet you can think of at least a few celebrity chefs who are trim and likely in that category.
One of the reasons for this podcast is to teach everyone who wants to know how to enjoy food without overeating!Overeating is actually a symptom of something else going on in your life.
It’s a coping mechanism.
Are you in that vicious cycle of overeating that looks like this: you get a craving and you’re not hungry, you eat anyway, overeat, then you beat yourself up for it, vow to never do it again, then you repeat the same cycle over and over?
Then this week’s episode is for you!
