Does your brain make lots of excuses for you to eat when you aren’t hungry? Excuses like, “I had a hard day and deserve this” or “I’ve been so good all day”?
If you’re an emotional eater or anyone who eats when they aren’t hungry, your brain has no trouble finding plenty of reasons for you to do this.
Yet as long as you keep eating when you aren’t hungry instead of dealing with your emotions in a healthy way, you won’t reach your weight loss goals and keep the weight off.
We might not be able to control 99.9% of what goes on in the world, but we can control our thoughts. It isn’t always easy, but with practice, it gets easier.
Being able to control your own thinking is a true gift that will help you not only lose weight, but be happier and better able to deal with all of those difficult things in life you can’t change.
As the Buddha said, “What you think you become.”
So if you want to lose weight, feel better and be healthier, the next time your brain starts telling you a bunch of lame excuses for eating when you aren’t hungry, the best way to avoid doing that is to notice your thoughts and work on changing them.
Unlike those lame excuses, these mantras can be your new thoughts, and they're are true or can become true for you.

I'm passionate about helping foodies learn how to drop their excess for good without dieting. I help you discover what is really causing your weight problem (it isn't that you love food!), fix it at the source, and teach you how to enjoy the foods you love while permanently losing your desire to overeat. I'd love to teach my method to you! I’m also a gourmet cook and baker who struggled with my weight for 40 years before discovering the secret of how to stop emotional eating and overeating. I am a certified life coach, arbitrator and mediator, and I live on the coast of Maine.
