Tuesday, July 26th, 2016

Episode 30: Why Better is the New Perfect When It Comes to Weight Loss

Do you aim for perfect? Or do you aim to do things better than you’ve been doing them?

If you aim to be better, you’re in luck! Aiming to be better is the proven way to make changes in your life.

Better is the New Perfect Podcast 30

Today’s podcast will coach and teach you how to develop a winning mindset that will help you achieve your eating goals, whether it’s to end your emotional eating, bust through your binges, or leave your overeating in the dust.

Pull up a cozy chair and listen as I coach you on:

  • Why you may unconsciously aim for perfection and why it is doomed to backfire.
  • How trying to be perfect in what you do will lead you to quitting.
  • The goal you should have when you start any project (hint: to learn!)
  • What is a mindset, anyway?
  • The difference, according to Carol Dweck, between a fixed and a growth mindset.
  • The big advantages of adopting a growth mindset, ASAP!
  • How your eating challenges can be resolved and the best way to resolve them.
  • What happens when you face a challenge, or hit a roadblock, or get criticism about yourself or something you’re doing?
  • How and why you can and should consciously change how you view the world, and how you view yourself.
  • Why judging yourself for how you’ve been thinking up to this point is pointless and harmful.

Join me on the Weight Loss Made Real Podcast to learn all about that fascinating mind of yours, and how you can use it to get the results you want, in your life, and in your body.

Ep 28 How to Make Your Weight Loss Project THE Priority

Tuesday, July 12th, 2016

Episode 28: How to Make Your Weight Loss Project THE Priority

Are you on your own ‘to do’ list?

Weight Loss Priority Podcast 28

Let’s say you decide you want to lose weight. And you make a plan, and get everything you need to do all lined up. You’re ready. But somehow, even though you really want to do this, the everyday challenges of life come up and you simply forget to focus on what you want most.

Does that sound like something that happens to you? It’s more common than you think.

Today, I’m going to coach you and teach you how to avoid this pitfall. I’m going to show you how to keep your Project YOU the ultimate priority, so you can get it done.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • What happens in the honeymoon stage of any weight loss program you’re on.
  • Why knowing how much weight you’d like to lose isn’t enough.
  • When you look at someone and envy the ease they seem to have about eating, what’s the most important thing you should be focusing on.
  • How your innocent thoughts can sabotage your best efforts.
  • Is planning really important? Why? And how can you make it less painful?
  • Why it doesn’t work to just look at your plan day by day, and why you need to think a week at a time.
  • What’s the difference between planning and prepping?
  • How to get and stay motivated, all by yourself.

If anyone can do this, I know for sure that you can too. But planning ahead of time makes it a whole lot easier. I hope you enjoy this coaching session and make yourself a priority.

Ep 27 The 5 D’s of Busting Through Your Overeating, Emotional Eating and Binge Eating

Tuesday, July 5th, 2016

Episode 27: The 5 D’s of Busting Through Your Overeating, Emotional Eating and Binge Eating

Busting Through Overeating Podcast 27

Have you ever faced down some food that you really wanted to eat and just gave in and ate it? Even if you weren’t hungry?

Did you know there are other options to overeating?

Yes, I’m talking about strategies for overeating. Strategies that can help you put some space in between you and the food in that all-important moment of decision.

Here they are. Taken straight from one of my most-loved worksheets, which you can get right here along with other goodies.

In this coaching session, here are some things you’ll learn to make better choices in that moment of decision:

  • What happens to your brain when you’re in a food situation?
  • How does your desire for a food in certain situations turn into a hard to break habit?
  • Why it’s just SO easy to give in and eat, even if you’re not hungry.
  • What the true goal is when you’re faced with an urge to eat.
  • Some great techniques to use right in that dangerous moment.
  • When you distract yourself in order to not eat, what is the true goal of doing this?
  • What are some things you can do to use the D of Distraction?
  • Why the D of Delay works, and how long you should use it for. (Hint: don’t do it for 10 minutes.)
  • The third D, Distance, can give you time to access your true desires, and say no to something you only want in that moment. Know how to do this?
  • The D of Download: why getting those confusing, conflicting thoughts out of your head and onto paper (or your computer) is so much better than ruminating in your mind.
  • And the fifth D, Decide. Even if you do eat something you are trying not to, it’s so much better to make a clean decision than to just tumble into it by default. Learn how to decide what to do and not have it bleed into the rest of your day, as in: “Oh, I’ve already blown it; I may as well keep going.” No! You don’t have to go there!
  • You’ll learn how to make the 5 D’s a part of your life, and how to remember to use them.
  • And, you’ll get the worksheet I use with my private clients and my groups to help you learn and use these techniques.

Enjoy!

Ep 26 Just Tell Me What to Eat! How to Love the Foods that Love You Back and Eat Like a Naturally Slim Woman

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Episode 26: Just Tell Me What to Eat! How to Love the Foods that Love You Back and Eat Like a Naturally Slim Woman

Tell Me What to Eat Podcast 26

The biggest question my clients have when they first come to me is this: “What should I eat?”

And that is their biggest desire. They want to lose weight, and they want me to tell them step by step exactly what to eat to get to their goal weight.

So in today’s episode, I want to talk to you about what to eat.

Here’s what we’ll cover in our coaching session today:

  • Why you look at food as good or bad and where that perspective came from.
  • Why that way of looking at food isn’t helping you and may actually be making weight loss harder.
  • What your parents and teachers may have trained you to think when it comes to what you eat.
  • How you judge yourself and why, when you eat a ‘bad’ food.
  • When you see certain foods as forbidden, what happens when you do eat one of these foods?
  • And if you manage to stay away from forbidden foods, why you feel so deprived.
  • How can you look at different types of food without the good vs. bad division?
  • What are helpful foods?
  • How to incorporate less helpful but good tasting foods into your diet without losing control.
  • How to judge how much ‘less helpful’ / treat food to allow yourself and still lose weight.

I want you to feel secure even when there is no exact prescription of what and how much to eat. I want you to always know what to eat and how much to eat because you know what works for you and your body. And this is what I teach my clients.

So even if your question is, “What should I eat?”, I promise that you will enjoy and learn from this enlightening coaching session.

Ep 25 How to Make Eating Choices All Day Long that Lead You to Weight Loss

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

Episode 25: How to Make Eating Choices All Day Long that Lead You to Weight Loss

Eating Choices Podcast 25

If you’ve ever sat down and listed all the different choices you made in one day, you’d probably be exhausted just thinking about it!

We face so many decisions every day and many of them are about when to eat, what to eat, how much to eat, and how to get ourselves to stop. Oh, and don’t forget all the self-beating about what we’ve just eaten!

This is what I will coach you on today: how to see all the eating choices you make in a day and know exactly how to make those choices.

Here’s what you’ll learn in Episode 25:

  • What you usually do when at a fork in the road, and what you should be doing instead.
  • Why giving in to the cupcake of the moment feels so much easier than passing it up.
  • How to stay awake and not go into autopilot when making food decisions.
  • What you tell yourself about all the little choices you make that could get you in trouble.
  • How to apply The Compounding Effect to eating and weight loss.
  • Why you need to know your ‘big why’ when it comes to making good eating decisions.
  • How to use planning for your benefit, even if you’re truly not a planner.
  • Learn how to stop kidding yourself when the same situations keep coming up, over and over again.
  • Spot your patterns and take charge of them, instead of being led unconsciously by them.

And more.

Your everyday decisions create your reality. Your body. Your weight.

So doesn’t it make sense to shine the light on all those eating choices and learn how to make them in your favor?

Join me for an illuminating coaching session!

Tuesday, June 7th, 2016

Episode 23: Why We All Love Diets and What the Real Answer to Weight Loss Is

Love Diets Podcast 23

Let’s face it. We love diets.

We love simple instructions that promise magical results.

Eat this.

Don’t eat that.

And you’ll arrive at your perfect weight.

Not. True.

Diets are an external solution to an internal problem.

Please join me as I coach you today on why we all love diets, and love to search for them and read all about them, but know, inside, that they aren’t the answer to your extra weight.

  • If diets aren’t a solution to losing your extra weight, well then, what does work?
  • Why it doesn’t work to keep trying to change the way you eat.
  • How those diet books with the big recipe sections fool you every time.
  • Why you love those simple 5 step guides to do anything, including weight loss.
  • Is your extra weight the problem? Or the symptom?
  • If you aren’t hungry and want to eat, what should you do?
  • How do you find the right solution to the problem of eating beyond what your body needs?
  • And, how to figure out your own causes of overeating so you can truly treat the problem correctly.

Let’s talk about finding the right solution to the problem of your extra weight. And, to do that, let’s learn how you created that problem in the first place. See you in the podcast.

Tuesday, May 31st, 2016

Episode 22: How Fear of Deprivation Makes You Overeat and What to Do About It

Deprivation Podcast 22

Are you at risk for being at the mercy of deprivation?

Well, not real deprivation.

All it takes is you believing that not getting what you want means you are deprived.

Sorry friends, but deprivation usually only happens in your mind.

In the world we live in, it’s truly rare that you are deprived.

Listen to this episode, and here’s what you’ll learn:

  • What deprivation truly is.
  • Why feeling deprived leads you to overeat. A lot.
  • How to say no to yourself without creating deprivation.
  • What effect your thoughts have on your feelings of deprivation.
  • Where do your tendencies to feel deprived come from?
  • How can you lose weight and say no to yourself?
  • Why it’s okay to say no sometimes.
  • What does your inner teenager have to do with deprivation?
  • How your parents might have set you up to revolt against ever saying no to yourself.

Join me and learn to never use deprivation as an excuse to eat food your body isn’t really asking for. And, when you break free from the deprivation mindset, you’ll find eating according to any plan much, much easier.
