Episode 166: Middle of the Night Eating

Get your FREE worksheet for this episode!


Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night, looking for food? Maybe you’re actually hungry, or maybe it’s just your habit.

Night Eating Podcast 166

In the moment, it feels like you have no choice but to follow this strong urge. And so, you do.

In the moment you don’t give it a lot of thought; there’s just this super-strong urge. And you probably go back to sleep after you’ve eaten. But the next morning is a different story, as you are wracked with guilt and regret.

Feeling bad and frustrated won’t help. But I do want you to do something about this, so it doesn’t become an even stronger habit.

In this coaching session I will tell you exactly what it might look and feel like so you can know if middle-of-the-night eating is what you are struggling with.

Then we will talk about all the possible reasons you might be doing this. We’ll talk about how it started and what to do about it.

This is a habit you definitely don’t want to keep around; there’s no doubt about that. But rest assured that this night eating habit, like all others, can be changed. And I will show you how, right here. See you in the session!

Episode 165: How to Eat with an Irregular Schedule

Tuesday, February 25th, 2020

Episode 165: How to Eat with an Irregular Schedule

A lot of my clients complain about their schedules. So many things come up! And so many things just don’t happen as they were planned.

Schedule Podcast 165

Sometimes your regular schedule gets disrupted and you have to change all your plans.

Other times your schedule is regularly up and down. It’s always irregular. And that is normal for you.

What I hear is that so many of my clients and listeners blame the normal ups and downs of their life for their irregular eating. For their overeating. And for their out-of-control eating.

Does an irregular schedule have to lead to irregular eating?

What is true? Can you actually stick to your plans and work toward healthy weight loss when your calendar is looking a little crazy?

The answer is yes! And that’s what we will talk about today.

Not only will I show you how to stop blaming and complaining about the fluctuations of your schedule, but I will also show you what to do about it.

You know me and you know there will be some thinking involved. But together, we will figure this out.

Episode 163: Are You Rebelling Against Yourself When You Overeat?

Tuesday, February 11th, 2020

Episode 163: Are You Rebelling Against Yourself When You Overeat?

Do you think if someone had a way of ‘making you’ do something, that you’d be so happy? Because then you’d really stick to your eating plan or go to the gym.

Rebelling Podcast 163

But then, when you do join a diet program or hire that personal trainer, you still find yourself quitting?

If you do, you are not alone.

And as silly as this might sound, you are really rebelling against yourself. You’re the one who wants to achieve something, to change a habit, or to just show up differently.

But when you set things up to do just that, you find yourself thinking things like:

  • I don’t care!
  • I don’t have to!
  • No one can make me do that!

And the next thing you know you are off your plan, headed in the opposite direction of your goal.

This is rebellion at it’s worst, because you are actually rebelling only against yourself. Hmmm. Not exactly what you planned to do, right?

In this coaching session we will take a good look at how you might be rebelling against yourself, why you might be in the habit of doing that, and, of course, how to stop doing it!

You know what you need to do. Now, let’s work together to help you actually do that. Without the rebellion. No more excuses!

Episode 161: Do You Feel Drained all the Time?

Tuesday, January 28th, 2020

Episode 161: Do You Feel Drained all the Time?

How do you feel most days? Are you energized and fairly optimistic? Or are you drained and depleted?

If your answer was drained and depleted, we need to talk.

Drained Podcast 161

There are many possible causes for feeling this way. And if this is one of your issues, I’d love to help you with this.

We need to look at the possible causes for these feelings so you can figure this out. And then you can deal directly with the cause of these feelings and get on with your life.

And, of course, stop using food to feel better.

In this coaching session, we’re going to consider all the reasons you may be feeling drained.

We’ll separate the potential causes into physical and mental or emotional reasons for your exhaustion. And we will take a look at what things are within your control, and which are outside of your control.

And then we’ll make a plan.

If you are frequently tired, mentally and physically, and don’t have the energy or the bandwidth to do what you need to do, let’s take this apart and solve it. Together.

Episode 40: Why You Overeat When You’re Stressed

Episode 152: Getting Through the Holidays Without Gaining Weight

Episode 152: Getting Through the Holidays Without Gaining Weight

If you’ve been following these podcasts and are doing the work on your eating and thinking and self-care, now may be the time for stress.

Or so you think.

Holidays Podcast 152

Here in the U.S. and in many places around the world, it’s holiday season.

That means more food, more temptations to ditch your eating plan, more family drama and more worry about eating.

Am I describing you right now?

In the Freedom Group, lots of our members start worrying about the holidays in October.

For some it’s all about the food itself.

For others, it’s about being alone, or with family members you’re not as connected to as you want to be.

Maybe you’ve made progress in your weight loss journey and you fear losing the progress you’ve made.

Or maybe you’re just beginning and struggling, and you’re afraid that your old habit of non-stop holiday food will keep you stuck in square one.

And self-care? For lots of us, it goes right out the window at this time of year.

Let’s look at all these holiday concerns together. I know for sure that no matter what the calendar says, you can get through the holidays without weight gain and without stress.

Yes, you can even be with family and still honor yourself. And I will show you how.

Let’s do this together and make these holidays the new standard for you to take care of yourself and your eating no matter what day it is.

Episode 151: Why Hunger Can Feel Scary

Tuesday, November 19th, 2019

Episode 151: Why Hunger Can Feel Scary

You’re hungry. You start to feel panicky. Will you be able to eat soon? What type of food will be available? What if there isn’t enough?

Scary Podcast 151

Next thing you know, you’re eating way more than your body needs. But you can’t help it. It’s scary to be hungry.

Or maybe this is what you experience… you’re hungry and you immediately respond by shutting that down. You’re used to dieting and that means you ignore that hunger signal. You can’t eat now – you’re not supposed to. And that’s scary too.

There are so many reasons hunger signals cause you to feel scared, out of control, or panicky.

Today, let’s take a closer look at the thoughts and feelings that come up when you feel physical hunger.

And we’ll talk about why it’s so hard to even wait for hunger in the first place!

We’ll talk about the difference between food restriction and food deprivation. And why you don’t need to worry about either once you learn how to eat like a natural eater.

I’ll explain why hunger is not an emergency – even if your lower brain is telling you otherwise.

We’ll finish up with strategies for handling hunger signals so that you don’t panic, and you don’t respond in ways that derail you from your goals.

You can learn to experience hunger without feeling like it’s an emergency that causes you fear and panic. I’ll show you why it’s so important to learn this and how to do it.

I’ll teach you how to respond from your higher brain, making choices that will serve your body, your goals, and your enjoyment. You’ll be able to replace those scary feelings and panic with peace. Listen in to learn how.

Episode 145: Should I Have Just a Little? Or None at All?

Tuesday, October 8th, 2019

Episode 145: Should I Have Just a Little? Or None at All?

How often do you struggle with this?

Little Podcast 145

You are offered a piece of chocolate cake. Your mind immediately starts weighing the pros and the cons.

Should you have a little bit of it? Or should you say no?

What will be easier? What will create more of a struggle?

While you know yourself, I wonder if you know what makes this decision easier or harder for you.

The first thing that I want you to look at is your thoughts, of course! If you think ‘one bite and I’m out of control’, that is a hint that you might find it easier to have none than just a little of that chocolate cake.

Your thinking creates your emotions. And if your emotions are deprived and helpless, when thinking about not having a treat, we can look at this and decide what you really want to do.

You’ll learn why having some isn’t better or worse than having none of that tempting food at all. It all depends on what is easier for you. And I’ll show you how to make the whole decision easier.

Are you ready? Will you have a little bit? Or will it be easier to just skip the cake?

Let’s find out!

Episode 129: How Accountability and Structure Help You Lose Your Eating Issues

Tuesday, June 18th, 2019

Episode 129: How Accountability and Structure Help You Lose Your Eating Issues

What do you think of when I say the word accountability?

Accountability Podcast 129

Do you think of your old strict 5th grade teacher, asking you for your book report? I thought so.

And what do you think about when I talk about structure?

Do you think of a rigid schedule that has no flexibility and feels a little like prison? Yup. I thought that you might think that.

So, here’s the reality. When you want to achieve something, anything, you need to have a path. Some guidelines. Some things in place that help you know where you are going, how to get there, and signs that you’ve arrived.

Well, that’s exactly what accountability and structure give you. They give you a framework for doing what you most want to do. These are things you can create for yourself, by you, for you. So, there is nothing to rebel against.

Let’s take a look at how accountability and structure can very positively affect how you eat and how you deal with food, so that you can get what you want: ending that emotional eating, losing that extra weight, and living your best life.

Episode 125: Will Eating This Be Worth It?

Tuesday, May 21st, 2019

Episode 125: Will Eating This Be Worth It?

The ultimate question that you may never ask yourself. Too often we eat because of a feeling, a memory or a need that has nothing to do with our hunger.

Worth It Podcast 125

This is not good, right? This is what gives you extra weight to carry around. If your body isn’t hungry, no matter what you think the food may do for you, it will always be extra food that you don’t need.

And extra food is always stored as fat. Period.

So, if you want to lose that extra weight, you need to start questioning yourself before you eat without hunger.

And a good way to do that is to ask: “Will eating this be worth it?”

That will require you to look ahead into the future and think about how you will feel after you eat this thing.

What do you hope eating now will do for you? What are you hoping to accomplish by eating right now?

I want you to learn to look ahead and make your decision about whether to eat based on the results you’ll get. The consequences you’re creating. Because that is the reality.

And rather than just feel bad after you eat something you shouldn’t have, let’s get in the habit of deciding whether this food, these bites, are worth it to you.

That is the question I want you to ask yourself if you want to eat when you aren’t hungry: “Will eating this be worth it?”

Episode 124: I’ll Just Have a Bite and Other Weight Loss Lies We Tell Ourselves

Episode 124: I’ll Just Have a Bite and Other Weight Loss Lies We Tell Ourselves

Do you ever say this to yourself?

  • I’ll just have a bite.
  • I deserve a little treat.
  • I’ll start fresh tomorrow.

Lies Podcast 124

If so, you’re certainly not alone. You may be the most honest person you know, yet when it comes to telling the real truth to yourself, you’re falling a little short.

You want to believe yourself when you say, “I’ll just have a little.” But when we’re talking about eating without hunger, you need to look at your history.

And your history shows that when you start eating for the wrong reason, it tends to keep going.

This is the truth. You want to eat ____________ and you’re not hungry. The truth is, whenever you do this, a little bit becomes a lot. And that is the truth about why you can’t lose weight.

I want you to take a deep look at all the little lies you tell yourself. Some of them may be about eating. And some of them may be about other habits you have, like starting over and over with anything you’re working on.

The feeling these thoughts create feels so real… because it is. It might make you feel justified or entitled to do this thing, or to eat this thing. But since that feeling comes from a little lie you tell yourself, it’s not a feeling based on your reality.

Join me today in this coaching session to uncover the lies you are in the habit of telling yourself.

And let’s wipe the slate clean. You are a person who does not tell lies. Ever. Not even to yourself.
