EP. #30: Overeating is a Symptom, Not the Problem

Overeating is a Symptom, Not the Problem | Weight Loss for Foodies Podcast

Do you beat yourself up for overeating?   

Do you think you’re weak or inadequate because you binge on sweets or believe you can’t control yourself around food. 

You aren’t. You don’t lack willpower. You probably have gobs of willpower which you use to do things like build a successful business, or motivate yourself to cook dinner for your family when you’re exhausted after working hard all day. 

Overeating is not the problem. It is a symptom of something else in your life that is causing you to want to overeat. And to lose weight, you have to figure out what that is.  

Once you treat what is causing you to overeat, it’s a lot easier to stop overeating.   

And it isn’t simply that you love food. We’re foodies here, right? We all love food, but not everyone who loves food overeats.   

As Pema Chodron so wisely said, “Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know.” This is so true of whatever is causing our overeating! 

Listen to learn how to figure out what is causing you to want to eat when you aren’t hungry, and what you can do to change that.
