Listen On
Podcast_ThumbnailFinal

Every human does 4 types of eating.

But most diets make you do just ONE type of eating without addressing how to stop the others that put on the weight.

This is why I’m always saying diets are failing us.

I don’t want you wondering what’s wrong with you when you’re just doing normal shit that doesn’t HAVE to be getting in the way of weightloss.

That’s why if you want to lose weight, it’s important to know the 4 types of eating EVERYONE does (even thin people):

1. Mindless Eating

2. Habit Eating

3. Emotional Eating

4. Physical Eating

You can lose weight without stopping all your mindless, habit and emotional eating. In this podcast, I’m breaking down each type and giving you some tips that’ll make it easier to lose some weight this week.

Listen today so you can stop thinking something is wrong with you and start losing your weight for good.

Transcript

Speaker A:

It’s, team. This is take two. So this is the one I want to use. All right, everybody, welcome back. Today we’re going to talk about the four types of eating. And the reason why we’re going to talk about it is because throughout most of us, like, who our lives, all of us who’ve been trying to lose weight for it seems like the day we were born, we have been failed by the diet industry. And what I mean by that, because people me all the time is like, what do you mean diets are failing us? Aren’t we the ones who ultimately fail the diet? I don’t think so. And here’s why.

Speaker A:

Every single human does four different kinds of eating. Most diets, what they do is they try to make you do one type of eating without addressing how you’re supposed to overcome the other types of eating that we do that put on the weight. So we’re going to talk about it today because I do not want another woman blaming herself as a failure for why she can’t do something, especially when it comes to losing weight. It’s really hard to lose weight when the system is not set up for you. When the system is set up against you, when it’s not addressing your actual needs, we have a problem, and it ain’t you. The problem is the damn diets. So the four types of eating are mindless eating, habit eating, emotional eating, and physical eating. Now, this is going to come as a refreshing note for all of you.

Speaker A:

Every person does all of them. Thin people mindlessly eat sometimes. And guess what? Thin people also emotionally eat at times. So you are not broken, you are not weird, you are not strange. If you are like, I don’t know what’s wrong with me. Food is supposed to be only fuel, and here I am eating an Oreo after a bad day. Food is not fuel. Only.

Speaker A:

Food serves many purposes in our life. What I want to teach you is that I don’t want food to be the only thing that you can do when you’ve hit your emotional bandwidth. So if you’re having a stressful day, let’s say somebody says awful words to you, you’re just having, I don’t know, just a really busy life. What I want to teach my clients is like, yeah, sometimes we overeat during those times. Sometimes we eat in ways that aren’t really helping us, but most of us are doing that all the time because we don’t know how to deal with stress. We don’t know how to deal with our emotions. We don’t know how to entertain ourselves any way other than food. We don’t know how to keep ourselves busy unless we’re eating.

Speaker A:

So what I try to teach people is every single person does all four of these. But what I want to help you with is getting to where you do them less and less. Like the mindless habit and emotional eating. We want to do these three less and less and less because we have replaced those with other coping mechanisms, other habits and other things. What diets do is they’re always talking about food as fuel. You should stay within your calories. You should only eat these foods like it is so sickening. Food is not just fuel.

Speaker A:

Food has lots of purposes, and you are not a broken soul because you are not just sitting around eating chicken and broccoli all the time. So let’s dive in. The first one I want to talk about is the physical eating. This is the one that, if you have been listening to my podcast for a while, if you are a no BS woman, you know, we really focus on identifying our physical hunger. So physical hunger is felt in the body. Physical hunger is not a craving, it’s not a desire. It’s not just wanting something. It’s not wanting your money’s worth.

Speaker A:

Physical hunger means at some point I know I need food. My body starts telling me, and it tells us in lots of ways, most people think that physical hunger is only a stomach growl. No, physical hunger comes in many different forms. And I teach that inside my program because so many women come to me after doing diet after diet after diet. That where they had to get extreme hunger that they are now thinking that is physical hunger. That’s called deprivation hunger. That’s called my body needed to send up an SOS because this bitch ass, low calorie diet you chose is sending me into desperation mode. The way I teach it, it is the early signs of hunger, the whispers, the non emergency, non urgent type of hunger.

Speaker A:

That’s when we want to be feeding our body. And there are two sides to physical hunger. There is the part where we’re looking for those first whispers and then when does the hunger end? When have we hit the point where our body has had enough? Again, there are so many unique symbols or signals for everyone, and yet we think we will only know enough if we’re counting our calories. No. How often have you been on a diet where you were counting calories? And let’s say you decided to have, god forbid, some nuts and avocado with lunch, and by the time you add everything up and you were eating something so good for you, you ain’t got shit left over for dinner. So you’re going to have to go into that meal probably ultra hungry, and you only have a very few calories, and when you finish with your calories, you’re still really hungry. This is why I do not like the calorie counting method for weight loss. I think it fucks with women’s heads way more than it ever fixes the size of their ass.

Speaker A:

I have just coached thousands and thousands of women who are the walking wounded from calorie counting and macro counting. They come to me terrified that they don’t know how much to eat, worrying the shit out of themselves, that if they get too hungry, they’re going to overeat. So they do a lot of preemptive eating when they’re not hungry for fear they’ll overeat later. I’m just going to tell you, if you’re eating before you’re hungry, you’re already overeating. You’re not saving anything. So we want to make sure that we understand physical hunger is just the basics of learning how to eat. When your body has the first signs of hunger and it starts giving off the first signs of enough versus full or overly full, that is how I teach my members. And if you need more information on what are those signals, what are those cues? Like, I don’t know how to read my body.

Speaker A:

That is the exact work we do inside of the Nobs program. These are the things that women are not taught. They are the things that you must learn if you want to have not only weight loss, but a long term relationship with maintenance. Not a short term one where you just gain your weight back, but a long term relationship where you feel like you can trust yourself to do the things required to just keep your weight off. So there is a couple of problems though, that happen. So number one, the problem for weight loss when it comes to physical hunger is diets are teaching you to ignore it. So if you’re counting points, you’re doing calories and stuff. Again.

Speaker A:

It goes back to the example of how many times have you been trying to lose weight and you run out of calories and now you’re just like, I guess I don’t get dinner, or I don’t even get enough dinner to even get me to enough. I’m just barely eating. I’m eating just enough to not pass out or eating just enough to not get hangry at someone. But I’m sitting there the rest of the night obsessing about food and feeling my body being hungry. The other problem is when we only eat for physical hunger, it disregards the easy stuff when it comes to losing weight. And what I mean by that is so often when we do diets, they’re so all about sticking with rigid food rules and rigid calorie range rules, that while you’re doing it in the beginning, it sometimes can feel easy because you have a really clear plan. There’s no confusion, I’m only eating this and I only get to eat this much. But then what happens is your emotional needs start creeping in.

Speaker A:

You have some of your old habits starting to knock on the door, being like, well, we used to always eat a snack at this time. What happens when you’re only eating for strict rules is you disregard that you have other avenues of overeating that you can clean up. So what we want to do is we want to make sure that we do include some emotional eating at times that we don’t beat ourselves up if we’re mindlessly eating, that we reexamine our habits and figure out which ones we want to keep and which ones we don’t. I am just a big believer in no one is ever going to just abide by physical hunger. I mean, there might be some unicorns running around in the world but they’re probably not listening to this podcast. The people who are only listening, if you’re listening to this podcast and you only eat with physical hunger, you probably also feel this way deprived a lot. You rearrange your life to where you don’t go to social events. If you do go to social events, you have so much anxiety like you’re trying to eat so holy and pure with your clean eating that the entire time you are on edge thinking like I wish I had some of that, I wish I could eat that must be nice that she can have that.

Speaker A:

Worrying what people are thinking about you wanting so bad to take a bite of something, but also terrified that if you do you’ll just end up overeating and then you end up leaving. And half the time you beat yourself up for not having a good time. Or if you took a couple of bites you beat yourself up for tasting things. Or if you did, god forbid, eat something that everybody else is eating, then you spend two days binging or beating yourself up for not being perfect. So I just think that all of us need to drop the idea that we are only going to eat when we’re hungry and we’re only going to eat to enough. And I know that I have talked about it in my podcast several times. You’re probably hearing this and being like what did you just say? Let me tell you what I think the new thought should be for everyone. As often as we can we are going to wait for hunger and as often as we can we are going to stop it enough.

Speaker A:

Knowing that sometimes we may want to overeat and we like our reasons. Knowing sometimes we may accidentally overeat and that’s just a lesson to learn. Sometimes we are going to eat when we aren’t hungry because we have a stacked day and we know we don’t have an opportunity to eat. Or maybe you are going to eat before you’re hungry because you’re a teacher and if you don’t eat breakfast, you don’t get lunch until like 210. And then sometimes you may eat before you’re hungry because maybe you’re just at your bandwidth. And instead of beating yourself up, you’re like, I just want to understand that in the moments when I use food to help me through an emotion, from now on, instead of beating myself up, I want to understand what is it that I’m most needing now in life? Okay, so let’s move on to the next one. So we got physical hunger all queued up. So every bit of eating outside of hunger and enough is where you can lose weight without a lot of complication.

Speaker A:

And this is where the diet starts failing us. Because when you start using the guideline of, I’m going to eat when I’m hungry and I’m going to stop, it enough. Any eating outside of that is now the roadmap to figuring out what you need to overcome and what you need to start giving yourself so that you can lose weight. A lot of you think this any eating outside of physical hunger and having enough, shame on me. This is why I’m a loser. This is why I can’t lose weight. We beat ourselves up over it. And I’m like, no more.

Speaker A:

Here’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to say all of the eating outside of those windows is my opportunity to finally figure out what I’ve always truly needed and how to develop the relationship I really want with food. All right, next we have got let’s talk about the mindless eating. Mindless eating is things like bites, licks, and tastes. So bites, licks, and tastes, we call them BLTs. That’s an old Weight Watchers term. You all know your girl did Weight Watchers so many times growing up. And so I will say one of the nice things that I learned was the old BLT myth.

Speaker A:

I just think it’s hilarious and awesome. So mindless eating is those bites, licks and tastes. That’s where maybe you are making cookies with your kids and you’re licking the spoon. Maybe you are cleaning up the kitchen and there’s a little bit of mac and cheese left on Junior’s plate. Well, you’re scooping that up, maybe you’re going out to eat with your partner and you’re like, well, I didn’t order French fries. I’ll just have a little bit of yours. I’ll just have a taste. Bicelics and taste are mindless.

Speaker A:

We just don’t really think about it. It’s a mindless behavior. It’s not like you’re trying to fill an emotional void. It’s not like you feel compelled to do it. It literally feels like it just happens without your consent. Like, oh, I didn’t even realize I was doing this stuff. This is why I think this is the first one I like to talk about in terms of cleaning up, because mindless eating is the one that usually most people can clean up the easiest, get some weight loss, and do it because they are not emotionally attached to it. This also can include snacking.

Speaker A:

It also can include the clean plate club. The clean plate club kind of runs on mindless eating and habit eating, and then it turns emotional. So let me just dive into clean plate club for a moment. Most of us are cleaning our plate because we always have. We’ve never questioned it. We’ve not even thought about not cleaning our plate. And then we start hearing like, oh, maybe every time I clean my plate. I’m eating past enough.

Speaker A:

Maybe I am eating to full. Maybe I’m eating beyond full. If you ever go out to eat and you’re part of the clean plate club, you know that. Especially if you went to the Cheesecake Factory. Y’all, if you’re a part of the clean plate club, there are times where you are eating and leaving and thinking, what the fuck, I’m full. It is like, I don’t want anybody in the way because the button on my pants is likely to blow off and put your eye out. So then what happens with the clean plate club is once we’re like, oh my gosh, I want to change that. Well, the first time that we try to do it, we’re like, all right, this time we’re not cleaning our plate.

Speaker A:

The next thing you know, the habit is taking over. You’re just eating, you’re just going for it and you’re like, oh shit, I was supposed to stop eating, so it’s fine. That means that now we just need to try again the next day. Then what happens is you get really conscious. I am not cleaning my plate. I’m going to leave some bites behind. I will not be a part of the clean plate club. You will get to the point where you’re ready to stop.

Speaker A:

Then the emotional part comes in. So now the emotional side is saying like, oh my God, you’re fixing to waste food. What if you get hungry later? Whatever would we do? You might be starving. Your brain now freaks out simply because you are taking a mindless habit and you’re breaking it. Your brain is like, I worked all these years to establish this habit and I’m a pretty lazy motherfucker. I don’t want to have to start a whole new habit. What are you talking about? Hasn’t this worked for us all these years? Your brain is going to throw the world’s largest fit when it becomes the emotional side. And that’s where it’s nice to be inside of no BS.

Speaker A:

Because one of the things that we work on inside of no BS is understanding where did clean plate club wasting food worries? Where do they start? Do you still need them? Like we start challenging the story behind it. Most people never question or second guess any of their behaviors that they learned when they were children. If you grew up with parents who were kids from depression age parents, or maybe really poor like me, when you stop cleaning your plate, it feels wrong. It feels wasteful. Only because all your life you were told to clean your plate because there wasn’t enough to go around. Or your parents were told, we don’t know where the next meal is coming from, so we should clean our plates. Then when you start questioning in your fifty s and you’re kind of sitting around in a comfy house, you’re ordering from Uber eats. It is not like if you don’t eat the last dollar of a plate that you’re going to lose everything but our brain and our body.

Speaker A:

Treat it as if we’re going to literally go hungry, we’re going to go without, like in a poverty stricken time. So we work really hard on teaching you. How do you unwind those fears and those anxieties? Because if you learn how to unwind the fears and anxieties, guess what? Leaving a little food behind becomes easier. Then it gets easier to serve yourself less so that you aren’t having to leave food behind. But guess what? Now, because you’re serving yourself less, you’re saving money at the grocery store. So the whole theory of what happens with the clean plate where it’s like, oh, my God, you’re going to be wasting food, gets blown out of the water because the real waste is overeating and taking years off your life. If you really want to be conscious and save money, learn how to serve yourself less based on knowing how much you truly need so that you can buy less and prepare less. All right? So when it comes to mindless eating, it’s very unconscious.

Speaker A:

The only thing you need to do is you need to start making yourself aware of when you’re doing it. Most people, when it comes to mindless eating, are going to lose ten to 15 pounds in two months simply by cutting out BLTs. I’m not against snacking, but I will tell you, most of you are snacking not because you need to. You’re snacking because it’s time. You’re bored, you need something. This is how you bond with your coworkers. I used to snack every afternoon at my day job way back in the day because that’s just what we did in the afternoons. Our bosses were fine with us taking a break if we walked our ass across the street to the gas station and bought food.

Speaker A:

Otherwise, if we were just sitting there and I just wanted to lay my head down, somebody would look at me cross eyed. So I had become a mindless snacker. So it’s unconscious eating. And the tip from me is make yourself aware when you’re doing it and try to cut out as much of your mindless eating as you can. Like I said, ten to 15 pounds probably can get lost by just cutting that shit out. Now, the problem that arises is that sometimes mindless eating, when you do want to give it up, suddenly it starts bringing up some of the emotional shit. So we’ll talk about that in just a moment. Just like when you finish up that clean plate, if you’re not going to do that anymore, it may switch from mindless to oh, my God, this is an emotional attachment I have.

Speaker A:

But let’s talk about number two. Number two is the habit eating. So physical is like the main eating. But the first one to tackle, I suggest, is always mindless eating. The second form of habit, or the eating to tackle for weight loss is the habit eating. Habit eating will get you a little bit more weight loss. And it looks like this breakfast or other meals just because you always eat them. Like you’re not even checking to see if you’re actually hungry.

Speaker A:

Habit eating is like, oh, it’s 08:00. This is always when I eat my breakfast. It’s not so much mindless, it’s now just like an ingrained habit. It’s like when I get to work, I sit down, I eat my breakfast when my kids get home, or my partner is done with work, or me and my partner who are retired, we always eat dinner at 05:00 no matter what. So we want to watch out for habit eating. Kind eating is another form of habit eating. That means that you probably have done a thousand diets where they have said like, eat seven times a day, eat six times a day, and now you’re just eating without really asking yourself, am I hungry? A lot of people do timed eating, and that’s a carried over bullshit rule from a lot of those metabolism diets. I’m just going to tell you right now, all of that’s been debunked thousand times over.

Speaker A:

Whether you eat three times a day or six times a day, there’s no big difference. I only eat two to three times a day. Most of the time I eat three times a day. Every now and then I eat twice a day, and it’s simply because I’m just busy in the mornings. And I now have a relationship with food where it’s like if I don’t eat in the morning and I know I’m going to eat at lunch, I’m not going to go into panic mode. I’m not going to tell myself, oh my God, I’ll be too hungry. I just tell myself, hunger is not an emergency. You’re going to eat at twelve.

Speaker A:

You might get hungry and you might want to eat, but it’s not like you’re dying. And I used to feel like I was dying and it took me thousands of times of telling myself, you ain’t dying. This ain’t the end of the world. We just need to understand your body overreacts because of past diets. And then I wait. So watch out for timed eating and then serving the same amount. This is probably one of the other big habits, is that you’re just very used to serving yourself a certain amount of food. So you want to watch for that.

Speaker A:

Start seeing if you can serve a little less, serve it differently. You will be shocked that even if you decide to switch bowls, how your brain will be like, what are we doing? But you always ate out of the blue bowl. Now this is the red bowl. Habit eating is just where it’s very routine and it’s just a part of what you do. So we’re very conscious, we do it. Mindless eating is one of those things where if you’re like thinking back on your last few days there’s eating, you can’t remember if you were cooking dinner and you tasted noodles. You may or may not even remember that. Whereas habit eating, when you think about, where are the habits in my food? You probably know them.

Speaker A:

You’re like, oh, yeah, I do time eating. Oh, yeah. I always serve myself the same amount in the same bowls. Holy shit. Well, hell yeah. I eat breakfast every day. I haven’t even asked if I was hungry in years. So we want to purposely change habit eating.

Speaker A:

So habit eating, what we want to do is we want to start asking ourselves, like, am I actually hungry? Why do I eat breakfast every day if I’m not hungry? Why do I eat a snack at 03:00 if I’m just not hungry? Do I really need to eat six meals, or would I literally like to? I will tell you as someone who when I did figure competitions back in the day, so I had lost all my weight. If you’re newer to the podcast, I started off at well over 250, and most of my life, I was somewhere between 200 and 250 plus pounds. Then when I lost my weight, I’d had my weight off for a while and decided to start doing these things called figure competitions, where you basically lift a lot of weights. You eat very little, you get way too skinny, so you can see your muscles. I don’t advise it for anyone. I will tell you the one thing, the positive I got out of figure competitions is I fell in love with weightlifting. It was so much fun to lift. I got stronger and stronger and stronger because it was the first time in my life that I lifted with purpose and I lifted really heavy.

Speaker A:

And I had a trainer who taught me all kinds of form, but because I was going to compete, I had to follow this god awful diet. And it was really hard on me. Very hard on me. I had lost my weight loving my body, and I had lost my weight with an amazing relationship with food and all the things that I loved. And when I did those figure competitions, all the foods I love left. I had to eat strictly according to time, and I had to eat like six or seven meals a day. Well, now I am like, I love eating three times a day. I love having three meals.

Speaker A:

I look forward to each one. Having three meals a day allow me to eat until I really have had enough, not just barely enough to make it 2 hours. And I love that I can put the foods in there that I enjoy, and that’s what I want for all of like, when I was losing weight, that’s what I did. It was like three lovely meals made in such a way that Corinne felt cared for and nurtured. And I took in consideration, my emotional needs, my physical needs, my body’s needs everything. And that’s what I want for y’all. So you have to purposely change your habits, and we talk a lot about that inside of no BS. Changing your habits usually drums up number one.

Speaker A:

You’re not going to feel like it. Your brain is going to fight to keep this. It’s going to make up excuses, justifications why you should keep doing it, not because what you’re doing is right for you, but because you’ve done it for so long. Your brain doesn’t want to change a habit, even if the habit’s not helping you anymore. Your brain will argue for negative habits. So we have to make sure that we know how to break habits and put new ones in as easy as possible. And that’s why it’s included inside the nobs weight loss program. I do a lot of teaching on how do we do these things, how do we pay attention to what we’re thinking? How do we start questioning all of this? How do we make it easier for ourselves in the moment when we are changing up habits? And then just like mindless eating sometimes, some of these things, when you stop doing them, the emotional side comes up.

Speaker A:

So that takes us to number three or the last of the eating type, which is emotional eating. So emotional eating is eating when we’re tired, eating when we need to celebrate or reward. Like, I just deserve it. I had a bad day, I should treat myself. Emotional eating is stressed. Like, I just can’t take this no more. I’m going to just eat this and start over tomorrow. That’s very often how it sounds.

Speaker A:

Fear of missing out. You are at work. The boss has brought in the free hot donuts on Friday as Worker Appreciation Day. And you’re seeing all your coworkers getting down on some hot glazed donuts and you’re just like, oh my God, I wish I’d known. I didn’t plan for that. Here I am trying to lose weight. Everybody’s having a good time but me. Fear of missing out is eating for the fear of missing out on something fun instead of the confidence that you’ll feel better later if you don’t cave to an immediate need to fit in.

Speaker A:

Connection a lot of us are emotionally eating for connection. We feel like the only way. Like, I coach women on this all the time. They have a hard time stopping at enough at dinner because they say, well, I eat faster than my family, and if I finish before them, well, I don’t get to enjoy it anymore. And I’m like, why can’t you enjoy their company and just sit at the table and not eat well, it’s like when I’m done with eating, I should be cleaning the kitchen. I need to get up and do the things. So instead of just sitting there and saying, no, I deserve connection with my kids. The only.

Speaker A:

Way that you can sit there is if you’re shoving mac and cheese in your mouth. So you need a second helping to be connected. And then I show them like you’re not connected to your kids. In that moment, you’re disconnected from your dreams and goals. And when you go back for more mac and cheese, you’re disconnecting from them. What’s more important, really hearing them or you enjoying your mac and cheese? I’m all about us enjoying some food, but what I don’t like is when we confuse connection with humans with what we’re shoveling in our mouth. We have to learn as women how to sit the fuck down without feeling guilty. How to sit the fuck down and enjoy people without a running to do list in our head.

Speaker A:

A list of all the ways I failed today running through our head or a list of here’s all the things I haven’t done yet. So let’s not get too comfortable here. Like, this is all great, but I’m not there yet. Women have to deprogram this stuff from themselves. Because if you’re trying to lose weight and you are not deprogramming bullshit like that, that’s why you end up overeating. You can only take so much pressure, self imposed pressure, self imposed fake ass rules of how you should be before you break. And most of us break with food so that we could cave to our own pressure. So the last one’s bored.

Speaker A:

A lot of us are just eating because we’re bored. We don’t know how to be bored anymore. No one knows how to be bored anymore. We get constant stimulation. We have to learn how to sit and be without our heads going nuts, that we don’t have something to do. Emotional eating is always, almost always some of this stuff, there are others. We eat because we’re overwhelmed. If you’re overwhelmed by all the things you have to do if you’re overwhelmed by your calendar, if you’re overwhelmed by the running to do list of the 1001 things you should be doing a lot of us eat when we look at that stuff because we don’t want to sit there and think about, what does it really mean if you’re overwhelmed? That’s not the problem.

Speaker A:

Your to do list, all the things are not the problem. You need to ask yourself, why am I so overwhelmed? If I don’t do these right in the right order, if I don’t do these all today, or if I don’t somehow figure my life out to where I can get all this stuff done on a routine basis, I make that mean, what about me? Overwhelm is one of those emotions that loves to come up and mask the true insecurity inside of all of us. And we are trying to eat to outrun thinking. It’s like the moment I start feeling the pressure and overwhelm, I’m going to eat not because of the list, but because if I don’t do all this right, or today I am going to tell myself how bad I am or that I’m failing, I’m not good enough, I’m not smart enough. I’m not a good enough wife. You’re not a good mom. So many of us have an unconscious narrative running. And because we’re overeating when we’re tired, reward eating, stressed out and stuff, we never hear the unconscious narrative.

Speaker A:

And you need to learn how to hear it because it’s not that you’re a bad mother. It’s that when you understand that that’s what you tell yourself, we can start questioning it. We can start changing that internal tape that’s running underneath so that when you undo that tape, when you undo that narrative, guess what? You have less triggers to emotionally eat. This is why I keep telling you diets fail you. It’s because when you take away the food, if you take away your food, the food you love, and you take away the calories from the overeating, you are still going to be tired. You’re still going to feel like you deserve a reward. You’re still going to get stressed. You’re going to have FOMO connection and bored.

Speaker A:

These are not going away because you start a diet. These actually get amplified because you don’t have food to cover them up anymore. And if you don’t have food to cover them up, you better damn well be learning how to deal with all of them. Otherwise, this is why you’ll end up quitting. Because you will not want to feel tired all the time. You will want to feel celebrated. You will want your rewards. You will not want to be stressed.

Speaker A:

You will not want to miss out. You will want the connection and you will want the board. And if you only know how to eat to get any of this, or to avoid any of this, this is why a diet fills you. You have to learn this part. So for all of you, as you’re unwinding, like as you start practicing hunger and enough. And you’ve been listening to the podcast for a long time, you may have heard just now, no wonder I get stuck or stalled. No wonder it’s harder to only eat when you’re hungry and stop. It enough.

Speaker A:

Because all that does is bring up here’s the mindless eating you must be doing here’s, the emotional eating you must be doing here’s, the habit eating you must be doing. And sometimes as you’re cleaning up habit and mindless eating emotionally, you don’t want to let it go. So we have to learn this piece. So the good news is with emotional eating, everybody does it. Everybody. No shame in your game. I still emotionally eat at times, probably more often than you would ever know. I just don’t beat myself up over it.

Speaker A:

I’m always continuing to learn from it and I’m not hiding from it. And I never feel like because I know it’s so normal, I never have to have fuck it eats on top. If I overeat at a meal, I don’t just say, fuck it, I’m going to eat all the other things I love because I messed this one up. So I’ll just start tomorrow. All of those things, I have worked through it. So you have room for emotional eating every now and then. Every now and then I just have a really fucking bad day. And I just tell myself, you know what? Today I am going to have something.

Speaker A:

I’m just going to eat until I had enough. But I just want fries today for dinner. That’s all I want. And I know I’m totally eating it simply because today was rough and I worked on it as much as I possibly could, and I’ve just hit my shit tolerance. I love being able to have that conversation with myself. I would much rather be the person who meets myself where I’m at with compassion than somebody who’s trying to force themselves always to be perfect. And then I just can’t meet myself anywhere. So I want you to ask yourself when you’re working on your emotionally, if you know that you’re tired doing all these things, here’s a simple question.

Speaker A:

What am I emotionally hungry for? And how can I meet those needs in a new way? This is the stuff we teach you inside of NoBias, this is the stuff that we like. We are going to teach you how to lose weight, but we’re also going to teach you how to deal with all the shit that comes up when weight loss starts. All right, I hope you enjoyed today’s podcast. Make sure if you want to, you can leave us a review. You can give us a rating. It just helps the podcast. And the other thing I would love for you to do is just share it. I want to get this message out to more women.

Speaker A:

More women need to know what the fuck’s going on in the diet industry. They need to know how to lose weight like a fucking sane person. So if you want, share the podcast. All right, y’all have a good week. Bye.
