The Ultimate DIY Fix to Stop Overeating

How quickly do you digest your emotions? Wait, what does that mean?  Don't worry. I'm here to explain it to you - and help you reliably (and consistently) digest your emotions so you can get into a relaxed state before each meal.

To catch you up, we're looking at the 2nd tool in a 7-part series learning HOW you eat is just as important (if not more important) than WHAT you eat.  If you haven't read the last post, click here to get up to speed!

Today I want to discuss eating in an emotional state.  Have you ever had the experience of eating when you're super stressed out?  Like there is just something you can't shake, can't get out of your head? And it's time to eat, but you're totally worked up and in the stress response?  I mean, of course, you have.  We ALL have been there.

So, because of what we're learning in this series, we know that our body can't digest food when it's in the stress response, right?  It doesn't even make...

The Simple Strategy That Helped Me Slow Down and Lose Weight

How do you feel when you hear me say, that sometimes, changing how you eat can really be more powerful than changing what you are actually eating? 

Do you believe me? Are you thinking, "Um, no-way? Whaaat? That can't be true."  But, it is! So, let me tell you a little story about one of my past clients... 

Her name was Samantha, and she was a big deal marketing director. She was 47 years old, and she came to me for help with digestive issues. She had something that she called her "belly balloon." Her belly just ballooned out even though she worked out five times a week.

When I asked her a few questions about her eating habits, she told me that she would stop at Starbucks on her way to work and down a large frappuccino and an egg and cheese sandwich in the car while rushing through city traffic.

How Eating Slower Helps with Weight Loss

Did you know that HOW you eat is just as important as WHAT you eat?  Well, it is... Did you know that eating slower helps your body burn more fat? Well, it does!

Here's the deal. We spend so much time working and rushing and being stressed out that we hardly even breathe when we're eating, much less breathe deeply. And that, my friends, is the problem.

When we eat under stress, our bodies cannot digest the food we're shoving down our throats like angry birds.  As far as your weight is concerned, taking a 5-minute break to gobble up a sandwich or even a salad is doing waaaay more harm than good! But, here's the good news; eating slower and more mindfully will help you burn more fat; no matter what you're eating! When I work with clients in my 90-Day Total Transformation Program, we dive deeply into this concept. Eating slower helps your body burn fat.  Here are just a few of the tools we use.

But even though they work for our family just the way they are, I know everybody is different. So I'm here to help you make the changes you want to suit your needs!

Let's get started with the Apple Pie Oatmeal... I get it, there are a LOT of carbs in oatmeal.  I like to eat this for breakfast to level my blood sugar and then avoid carbohydrates as much as possible for the rest of the day.  That being said, here are some easy ways to make changes to the meal:

  • To make it vegan substitute Melt or Miyokos plant-based butter for the grass-fed. If you're just avoiding dairy, feel free to use grass-fed ghee.
  • Fresh ginger is great for the flavor and your metabolism but you can always omit if it's not your favorite spice or you don't...
