Hello love,

I know as emotional eaters we have this desire to just get rid of food. We don’t want to deal with it anymore, think about it and would rather throw it out the window.

Because it has created so much obsession and control.

These obsessive thoughts are a symptom. We are always thinking about food, this is good/bad, counting calories, restricting, etc. 

This is one part of the Emotional Eating pattern. 

I used to be the same way; constantly thinking about food, trying to control it only to stumble and then binge and fall into the shame spiral. 

But food is not your enemy. 

Because when you resolve your emotional eating on the other side is feeling good around food, feeling ease and peace and craving good quality food so that you feel more vibrant and alive. 

You start loving the food that you are eating. 

AND this is not some magic miracle. I see this with clients all the time. 

Clients who thought they could never crave fruits or vegetables, or be ok around food. They thought they could never be free of this obsession. 

But they now have Food Sovereignty. 

So if you are an emotional eater it does feel overwhelming to constantly think about food. Not only that, you probably have a lot of physical symptoms because you can’t “control” food. 

Like digestive issues, mood imbalances, inflammation, chronic issues and weight gain. 

It’s hard to nourish yourself and put the right foods into your body when this pattern is running the show. 

As emotional eaters our relationship to food sucks. 

We’re restrictive, constantly obsessing about it, shaming ourselves, judging our behaviour as good or bad. It doesn’t have to be this way. You don’t have to punish yourself around food. 

A lot of these “rules” around food we have are “diet rules”. These rules can trigger more emotional eating when we don’t live up to them because they can’t help us manage our emotional eating because it doesn’t get into the root of it. 

We need to do the deeper work to get to the root of this pattern while also creating a new way of relating to food that connects us back to food. 

So that’s what I’ll be chatting a bit more about.
