RETRAIN YOUR BRAIN TO EAT MINDFULLY

Only one month and winter is gone for another year – and what’s the first thing we start panicking about with spring approaching? Yes – the winter kilos we’ve been piling on!

This is the time when gym memberships are started, and diets begun!

But what about those of us who have tried every gym program and every diet produced? For those who lose weight while committing to these programs but always put all the weight – and sometimes more – back on afterwards?

It’s great to see that most gyms and diet regimes do take mindset into consideration – it’s not an easy fix to sort out what goes on in our head.

I was that person – I knew that I had to find a way to control my brain hunger, and now I’m able to eat mindfully and recognize the difference between brain and physical hunger. There are times of course that it doesn’t work as planned, we are all human.

Ninety percent of the time I eat well and am happier for it.

So what are the most common reasons for overeating?

  • For most of us it’s stress – we eat when our energy is low, have had a bad day or anything that takes us out of our comfort zone
  • For some it’s more than that – years of conditioning or suppressing something that affected us emotionally – something we know we need to deal with but its too hard to face?

This is where counselling can help

I can teach you to ‘rewire your brain’ while helping you to work on what lies behind your eating, preparing a ‘bag of tools’ so you can move forward.

Helping  you to recognise the difference between brain hunger and physical hunger:

  • Physical signs – grumbling stomach, low energy etc.
  • Brain hunger signs – feeling tired, stressed, lonely and needing to be ‘cheered up’

Tell yourselves that this brain hunger is not physical hunger, it is nothing but a compulsive urge to eat!

Take the time to listen to your body to learn the difference

Learning to name brain hunger with calmness and clarity will strengthen your ability to observe it without having to indulge in food.

But of course it’s more than just that, if it were that easy you wouldn’t need help!
