How to Eat Chocolate (or any foods you love) | Weight Loss for Foodies Podcast

Are you someone who believes you can’t allow yourself to eat certain foods?

Can’t have them in the house or you’ll devour them immediately?

Can’t trust yourself around cookies? Chips? Chocolate?

I get it. I used to be that way before I ditched my lists of foods I “shouldn’t” eat. I always ended up eating those foods anyway. Don’t you?

Because I knew they were forbidden, I would wolf them down, like if I ate them fast without paying attention, I wasn’t really eating them.

It was so unsatisfying and sad because I had all of that food in my body, yet I barely tasted it, let alone enjoyed it. All I felt was uncomfortable afterwards. And maybe guilty and mad at myself for eating like a pig.

I no longer have “forbidden foods,” and I no longer overeat. I can have any of my previously forbidden foods in the house and even forget they’re there.

The good news is that you can too! You can change your relationship with food and eating so that you can eat the foods you love without overeating.

You can take the power back from those foods.

Listen below to understand why you overeat the foods you forbid yourself from eating, and what you can do instead. 

In this episode, there’s an exercise for eating chocolate, or any foods you love.

Thanks to Susan Albers, PsyD, for the idea for this exercise.




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. Hi Shari, I think many of us go through struggles with food. I LOVE CARBS. But I have always had to watch them–first with low blood sugar and now with a propensity to high blood sugar. I guess my pancreas is just a trouble maker. But what I’ve done is discovered really dark chocolate. I keep bars of it in the house and my husband and I EAT ONLY A FEW SMALL PIECES after dinner. Yes, when there’s a birthday party in the family, we will eat some cake. But ice cream, candy bars etc we keep them out of the house. So far it’s working. I don’t need to become a diabetic!

  2. I’m so glad you’ve found something that works for you. Paying attention to how and why we’re eating makes all the difference in satisfaction and keeping our weight down, but when your blood sugar goes up, you’ve got to pay special attention to what you’re eating.

Meet Shari

I am passionate about helping women lose weight without dieting by teaching them how to trust their inner wisdom and make peace with food and eating.  I love teaching women how to get off the diet hamster wheel by learning how to eat consciously, stop emotional eating and enjoy foods they love while losing their desire to overeat along with their excess weight.
