Why Do I Just Keep Eating When I Know I Shouldn’t? [Video]

People ask me, “Why do I just keep eating when I know I should stop?”

It's probably because you are having a one sided conversation in your head.

When pizza or ice cream is sitting in front of you, immediately you think…

“This looks so good.”

“F-it…I've been good all day.”

“I should be able to eat like everyone else.”

Sound familiar?

If you are tired of wanting to lose weight and getting nowhere then you have to know one thing.

What to ALSO think in that moment.

Warning. It's not a fun and fuzzy thought. It's some truth time.

Watch the 2 minute video and you'll understand how to STOP talking yourself into overeating.

    This video is a brilliant example of a good way to learn to talk to one’s self. I will sign up for the tribe because I can fast talk myself out of even brilliant examples.
    Can this be posted if I don’t have a Facebook or Twitter account?

    “You ran out of minutes.”

    That is as powerful a statement as I’ve ever heard. It brought tears to my eyes just to think about the things I might miss at the end of my life because I might feel entitled to make unfortunate food choices today. 🙁

    Definitely printing that out and taping it to the fridge and pantry door.

    One of the precepts of my belief system is to do no intentional harm to any conscious living being.
    I am a conscious living being.
    When I over-eat, I am harming my body, myself.
    Overeating is self harm.
    I can recollect this truth and act accordingly.
    I have the choice to show up for and protect myself from harm.
    I am worth it.
    So are YOU.

    Thank you. You are so helpful. I’ve lost 5.6 pounds. I listen to your podcast every time I get in the car. I’ve made small changes and I write shit down.

    I think I eat out of boredom, because I am a caregiver trapped at home most of the time. I will try this today.

  12. Karen on January 1, 2020 at 11:09 AM

    Definitely the conversation that goes on inside my head! Lots of self defeating thoughts. ☹️

  13. Tracy on December 29, 2019 at 3:51 PM

    Wow. When you put it that way, it really hits hard. Like look how selfish I’m being to my body for this extra lil bit of whatever.

  14. Sunny on December 25, 2019 at 8:41 AM

    yep !

  15. Dorian Cornelius on December 23, 2019 at 6:26 AM

    Words of wisdom. I want to cut out the conversation in my head about entitlement or whatever and just eat what my body needs.

    Corinne, you are my guru. You are the best. I’ve been struggling since I was 5 years old. You’ve heard all the stories, I’m sure. But I feel you’re turning my thoughts around, for the first time, and I’m truly loving you for that.

    Very helpful! It’s easy to turn off the reasoning/sober part of the brain and “forget” about the rest of the story… Waiting for the next tribe opening opportunity!

    • MJ Sharifi on December 11, 2019 at 5:02 PM

      So glad you’re joining the tribe! Make sure you’re on the mailing list and can’t wait to see you in the tribe on December 29! PNP Coach MJ

  22. Vicky Sawyer on December 6, 2019 at 3:46 PM

    My metabolism has slowed so much now that I’m over 50! Like bam!!-overnight. If I listen to my body, it honestly tells me it’s not hungry. Food I once loved, or still crave…it just doesn’t taste the same with the mental shift. Your video today gave my mind another “stick-to-it” memo! I won’t soon forget these images! A lost opportunity for “I love you” —That unhealthy food on my plate isn’t worth it. Thank you for a different perspective!!

    • MJ Sharifi on December 11, 2019 at 5:03 PM

    Wow! I have tried to control my eating by guilting myself for years! Obviously that doesn’t and hasn’t worked! I’m going to keep listening to this video to help me get my focus right!

    • MJ Sharifi on December 11, 2019 at 5:03 PM

      I love that you’re changing your mindset! PNP Coach MJ

Hi, I'm Corinne

I lost 100 pounds and get what it is like to be overweight and feel defeated. I did a complete mental and physical transformation and now I teach women how to do the EXACT same thing. You can get started today with the free course.
