Why You Need More Pleasure in Your Life that isn’t from Food | Weight Loss for Foodies Podcast

Do you make time for pleasure in your life? I’m talking about pleasure from sources other than food.

One of the reasons so many people are overweight and have difficulty dropping those extra pounds for good is that they allow food to be too big a source of joy in their life. Consequently, they rely on food and don’t develop other sources of pleasure.  

For some people, food is their main source of joy. While food is certainly pleasurable, and as foodies, we love food, it is not healthy to have food as your main source of joy.

Listen below to this week’s episode to learn about these two important components of self-care:

(1) adding more healthy pleasure into your life and 

(2) self-compassion.

In this episode, I discuss the Denial-Binge Cycle, the Cycle of Diminishing Self Care and a few other vicious cycles that keep you stuck. And how to break through them!

What gets in the way of you accessing these simple pleasures? What can you do to prevent that from happening?

Listen to find out how you can include more pleasure in your life that isn’t food, and how this can actually help you melt down to your naturally healthy size.

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 always enjoy your posts Shari. You are always right on point. Food is certainly one of life’s pleasures, but it’s certainly not the only one! I keep a running list of pleasures that recharge my spirit on a regular basis…for instance spinach gardening, game night every Saturday night with the kids, volunteering every Thursday, adult coloring, unwind with reruns of Golden Girls on the weekends! 🙂 There are just so many ways to conquer stress and unleash happiness without resorting to food.
