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. 



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. I’m a comfort food nosher for sure. My sister died in May and I spent the summer eating away my grief which, of course, is impossible to do. All I managed was a gain of several pounds. But I’m motivated to eat healthy, so the chips and dips are out of the pantry. 🙂
