Emotional Eating to Feed Your Feelings
Emotional eating feeds your feelings. If you eat when you feel bored,
upset. down, happy, confused, excited, joyful, uncertain, malaise,
bored then you are feeding your feelings.
Can you look at each
of those feelings as a different persona? Sound strange?
there's Mr. Boredom, Ms. upset, Mr. Confusion, Mrs. Joy and they are
all looking for someone with whom to have fun. And they find a lot of
No wonder that the latest obesity statistics are:
* 58 Million Overweight; 40 Million Obese; 3 Million morbidly Obese
* Eight out of 10 over 25 is overweight
* 78% of American's
not meeting basic activity level recommendations
* 25% completely
* 76% increase in Type II diabetes in adults 30-40 yrs
old since 1990
These feeling are having a hell of a lot of fun
and what does the poor emotional eater do? Answer: Get bulged out on
What good does it do to talk about healthy eating
habits, diets, advice to feel good about you, priorities, meditation,
yoga, deep breathing, relationship advice... when it's the feeling
themselves that are the culprit.
The quandary is that advice
is not the answer even to dealing with the feeling of emotion. I can
imagine someone saying, "Take a deep breadth when you're angry, or
frustrated, or bored." Not that it might not help, but it will help no
more than all the other advice.
No, the answer lies with our
own beliefs about these emotions. That is, why they should be avoided
or not felt, or why they don't help or why we don't deserve them.
The heavier the person is the more incapacitated he/she is to
feeling certain emotions or feelings. In fact in many respects we are
emotional cripples--crippled usually at some age in our social
development. This could have happened at any age and with any emotion.
Psychologists may define this as post traumatic stress
disorder depending on how incapacitated one is.
generally apply to the severely obese--70 or more pounds overweight.
Yet, once identified, it's really no big deal. It's that the
subconscious mind has been frozen at a particular age in regard to the
ability to feel certain emotions. The task is through education to
bring the subconscious mind up to date to agree with the conscious
mind and hypnosis is a very effective tool to accomplish this.
Yet, while one may not be physically incapacitated with 70 or more
extra pounds, one could be mentally frozen with 15 or 20 pounds that
never go away. The task is the same--become boring for Mr. Emotion.
A progressive approach to managing weight involves asking
important questions "What is missing? Why are you not getting the
results you've been promised from the experts and resources you've
consulted?" It is clearly insane to keep using the same recycled
advice regarding fad dieting when the results are not permanent. It's
more important to gain a grasp on how to handle emotional
eating--eating emotional stress than it is to read the scale. Besides
focusing on the scale doesn't empower you to be a better more
enlightened person, whereas learning how to overcome emotional eating
empowers you in all aspects of your life. If you're a sales person,
you'll be a better sales person. If you're an assembly line worker,
you'll be a better assembly line worker; a mother, a better mother...
Overall, you'll build self worth and find that what you really want to
eat is far more nutritious and less in quantity than you ever before
