How to Overcome Resistance--Part II | Weight Loss for Foodies Podcast

In Episode 111, we learned  what causes resistance and how cultivating a growth mindset is an important step in breaking through it. 

Today, in part 2 about resistance, we’re talking about how to investigate where your resistance comes from so that you can get to the bottom of what’s causing it, untangle it and get it out of the way!

Yoga has a word for bits from our past that we hold inside us that keep coming up, and interfere with our ability to see what’s happening now. They’re called Samskaras.

Samskaras can come up and you don’t even realize it, but they will cause you to react in a particular way based upon your past. 

Samskaras may be a trigger or conditioning. The problem with samskaras is that they prevent you from experiencing things in the present moment. Samskaras are a form of resistance. 

Have you ever thought about what it actually is that you’re resisting by staying where you are? 

Join me in learning how to get to the bottom of what we’re really hungry for. Because I can assure you that when you reach the bottom of the bag of Oreos, the answer isn’t there. You weren’t really hungry for the Oreos.

About the author 

Shari Broder

My mission is to help foodies ditch dieting and lose the weight for good. Discover what is really causing your weight issues (it isn't that you love food!), and learn how to stop obsessing about food and make peace with food and eating. Get off the diet hamster wheel once and for all and learn to eat consciously, stop emotional eating and enjoy the foods you love while permanently losing your desire to overeat.

  1. Thank you Shari Broder for your podcast and all the think sheets.
    I listened to today’s podcast already twice. And it got me thinking and thinking again. I tried to write down the 5 thinking ideas you gave but I could not manage. Can you please put those 5 points of thinking in a think sheet so I can keep it next to me an ” munch ” about them. And get my mind around the resistance in my body and think about why I eat when I am not hungry and what to do about it. Or better so that I can stop that habit. Hopefully you understand what I mean. I live in the Netherlands. And sometimes putting my feelings in English is hard

  2. Thanks so much for your kind words. That’s a great idea for creating a Think Sheet–so I’ve done it! I’ve edited the post above so you can access it there. Thanks! (PS Your English is very good!)
