In Episode 8, we talked about how, when we're born, our bodies are finely tuned to tell us when we need nourishment. Those of us who are overweight or even many people who aren’t mess up that natural intelligence.
I’m going to help you get yours back!
Every time you obey that urge to eat when you aren’t hungry, you are overeating. From your body’s perspective, it doesn’t matter whether you give your body too much food by eating for emotional reasons or just not stopping when you’re lightly full. Dumping the emotional eating habit will make all the difference if you have tried other methods of losing weight and not regaining it, but haven’t gotten permanent results.
And you don’t even need willpower.
Frankly, willpower is a crock when it comes to weight loss. Using willpower to lose weight simply isn’t sustainable. Forget about it.
Maybe you’re thinking, “WHAT is she talking about?”
Listen to Episode 9 to learn:
- How willpower works;
- Why you don’t need willpower to lose weight;
- Why relying upon it as a weight loss tool is simple not sustainable.
