Episode 110: Wake Up! Get Your Eating Off Autopilot

Wake up!

No, I don’t mean in the morning. But I do mean in your life. And especially when you are eating.

Wake Up podcast 110

I wonder if you are aware how much of your overeating happens when you are zoned out, not paying attention to what and how much you are eating?

Well, this is really common. But common or not, I don’t want this to be something that you continue to do.

Eating is pleasurable. And if you enjoy good food like I do, I want you to taste and appreciate every bite.

Besides getting more pleasure out of your food, the other component of eating with mindfulness is that you get to hear your built-in signals that tell you how much to eat.

That’s right. You don’t need a diet to know when to eat and when to stop.

But you have to be awake and aware every time you eat in order to hear these signals.

So in this coaching session today, I’m going to be talking to you about:

  • What eating on autopilot is.
  • How to recognize it in yourself.
  • Why you might be doing it.
  • What you need to stop.
  • And of course, how to stop eating without realizing what you’re doing.

Join me in this coaching session and learn how to be fully present with your food. And in your life. And in the next episode, Episode 111, we will continue this theme. It’s called, Eating Mindfully: How to Eat with Intention and Attention.

I’ll see you in our next session.

The Delicate Art of Responding to Your Hunger

Thursday, January 10th, 2019

hungerWhen we talk about eating when we’re hungry and stopping when we’re satisfied, it sounds so simple.

So why do so many of us have trouble doing this?

  • We frequently let ourselves get too hungry. And usually this results in eating so much we end up overly full.
  • Or we don’t wait to feel the hunger signals, and eat whenever we are stimulated from the outside world… we may see a Taco Bell commercial, (my husband’s favorite on Sunday evenings) and suddenly get an urge to eat.
  • Or we’re hungry, and eating, and we completely miss the signal that we’ve had enough. We focus on the food and how delicious it is. So we keep going until we are bursting and remorseful.

Why do these things happen when the instructions our bodies come with seem so simple… eat when you’re hungry and stop when you are satiated?

There are many reasons we’ve trained our bodies and brains to get off kilter. It’s no accident… it takes practice.

Here’s what can happen that can derail us:

When we are used to dieting we’re learning to eat according to a plan. Not our bodies’ plan, but someone else’s plan. So we learn to feel hungry but take it as a sign that our diet is working. We’re supposed to be hungry, right? And so we don’t respond to the hunger. We ride it out and power through it. Whoo hoo! Weight loss is around the corner! Or so we think.

But, eventually, our survival instincts click in. They are genetically installed in our brains to prevent us from starving. So when we’ve been hungry enough, for long enough, boom, we’re suddenly finding ourselves elbow deep in a bag of chips. We simply couldn’t resist anymore.

And then, as a result of this ‘near-starvation experience’ (to your brain, anyway!) you will overeat to make sure that you’re not in danger of starving again in the near future.

If you’ve been a dieter many times, and who hasn’t, then your survival instincts are permanently on high alert… so anytime we see food, smell food, or see someone else eating, we get an urge to get some. Quick.

We’re not really physically hungry, but this urge is strong.

And it can feel impossible to not obey it.

Thus, compulsive eating and binge eating are born.

Or, let’s say you try to always eat ‘perfectly’… whatever that means to you. No carbs. No sugar. No fat… (What ARE you eating??)

And after a while of doing this, your body will drive you right up to the fattiest, sweetest, and starchiest treats you’ve ever seen.

And it will make sure you get more than your share.

Because you’ve been depriving yourself. And that old survival instinct in your lower brain simply can’t be fooled.

When you have been depriving yourself and you finally give yourself some of the ‘forbidden’ foods, you won’t be able to stop.

It’s as if you have switched on something in your brain that is going for it… way past satisfied, way past full, all the way to grossly overstuffed.

It feels terrible, and you feel like you’ve been possessed.

So, what’s the remedy?

How do we actually get ourselves to eat when we’re a little hungry, and stop when we’re a little full?

Take a look at my hunger scale.

Your goal is to wait for a little hunger. A little emptiness. It’s a signal. You might have conditioned yourself to feel panic along with hunger. There is nothing to worry about. If you are reading this, most likely you don’t have to worry about starving. When you feel the slight hunger, just notice it, and begin to think about where your next meal is coming from.

If you’re like me, you’ll enjoy knowing ahead of time where that next meal is coming from.

And this means planning, shopping and maybe doing a little bit of prep work. It’s ok. This is part of taking care of yourself.

Did you ever watch a mother traveling with her children? She probably has a bag bigger than one of the kids, filled with all kinds of food… snacks, drinks, fruit, maybe even whole meals.  You deserve this same treatment… getting your hunger needs met easily.

For now, just know that the hunger you feel doesn’t require panic. Just planning.

When you eat, the goal is to be awake… so you can tell when your stomach is near filling up in a comfortable, light way.

And then you can stop.

There will be more next time.

You’ll definitely enjoy it more when you’re hungry again.

And so it will go… a little hungry, to a little full.

Never starving, never stuffed.

It really is simple.

It’s just that we’ve trained ourselves out of this wonderful survival mechanism… and we can retrain ourselves back into it.

No panic required. No remorse either.

Ready for Black Friday?

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

Black Friday shoppers waiting to get in

Black Friday.

You know.

The day after Thanksgiving when everyone lines up at their favorite store at 4:00 a.m. to get a shot at getting one of 50 heavily discounted iPads, Prada purses, leopard print doggie raincoats, or Cabbage Patch dolls.

(Yes, I know I’m dating myself with that last one but I couldn’t resist.)

When the doors open, grown women stampede each other to get in the door and score the coveted goods.

The feelings:

Excitement.

Lust.

Competitiveness.

Why? Because if you are one of these shoppers, you want to get your prize.

Now, come back to Black Friday.

Here’s another perspective:

Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving

The feelings I hear most about on this day, after indulging in a day of family, great food, maybe a little Dysfunctional Family Bingo, and a nap are:

Regret.

Shame.

Disgust.

Why? Because if you are a typical American woman, you overindulged.

You ate too much.

So what!

Let’s look at this holiday another way.

Your end game, your body, your weight are all the result of what you do on a regular, consistent basis.

Most months.

Most weeks.

Most days.

Most meals.

One meal? Thanksgiving?

It’s not a big deal.

It’s just a day.

You overate.

Life goes on.

So put away the shame, the remorse, and the disgust.

Move on.

And get out there and get in line for the thrill of the Black Friday hunt at your favorite retailer.

Episode 96: How a Food Journal Can Help You Lose Weight

Episode 96: How a Food Journal Can Help You Lose Weight

Oh, my goodness! Just the mere mention of keeping a food journal is enough to throw most of my clients into a tizzy.

Food Journal podcast 96

How about you? What memories does the thought of writing down what you eat, bring up for you?

Could it be memories of shame and judgment and thinking poorly of yourself?

Remember when you dieted, and you slipped, (of course you slipped!) and you went to write down that slip and ugh! You felt terrible?

No more. I am not saying you must keep a food journal. But if you are stuck in a plateau, and don’t know why your weight is at a certain point, keeping a journal for a few days can be a dose of truth.

And nothing moves you ahead faster than dealing with reality as it is, not as you wish it were, not as you remember it was, nor as you hope it should be.

Reality is what you are truly doing, and eating, and that is giving you the result you have.

Let’s lose the old image of the harsh, punishing food journal and look at a simpler version that will help you play detective in your own life.

Episode 88: How to Officially End a Meal

Let me guess. Sometimes, it’s hard for you to stop eating.

Well, this is exactly what I’m going to help you with today.

Once you determine that you’re hungry, and you start eating, the next step is knowing exactly how to stop. We’ve talked several times about recognizing your fullness and knowing when to stop.

What I’m talking about here is the actions you can take to declare the meal over, and move into the next part of your day or night.

Episode 82: Fullness: A Deeper Look at How to Tell When You Should Stop Eating

Tuesday, July 25th, 2017

Episode 82: Fullness: A Deeper Look at How to Tell When You Should Stop Eating

Do you have trouble with the feeling of fullness and stopping eating when you’ve had enough? Welcome to a very large club!

Fullness podcast 82

Most of my clients find it MUCH easier to know when they are hungry than they do knowing when they are lightly satisfied.

Why is it so hard to figure out when enough is enough?

Partly, it’s such a subjective thing. There is no beeper or alarm or light that goes off like the one in your car.

Wouldn’t it be nice if some personal signal let you know exactly when you were full?

One of the challenges is that if you have extra weight on your body, you are most likely to be used to feeling full a lot of the time.

If you get used to that feeling, then that becomes the normal time to stop eating.

Join me as I give you a system for knowing how to tell when you’ve had enough, no matter now good it is, and stop eating.

Episode 80: Weekend Weight Loss or Weight Gain?

Tuesday, July 11th, 2017

Episode 80: Weekend Weight Loss or Weight Gain?

What does your typical eating week look like?

If you’re like I used to be, it would look straight and narrow Monday through Thursday, and wide-open and full speed ahead on the weekend.

Weekend podcast 80

I’d tell myself on Friday that I deserved to reward myself for getting through the week. For accomplishing all that I did. For putting in hours and powering through, even when I was tired.

And, I had a very willing partner in my husband, David, whose favorite suggestion is always, “Let’s treat ourselves! It’s the weekend!”

So… I deserved to ‘treat myself’, right?

And that’s what I did. Until too many Monday mornings of shame, regret, and an upward moving scale woke me up.

I finally realized that if I kept up the pattern I was living in, I’d never get where I wanted to go.

I’d never accomplish my eating goals. My self-care goals. And certainly not my weight goals.

So, what’s the solution? Do you have to be strict and rigid and hard on yourself all the time?

No! If you know me, you know that’s not how I roll. Pull up a comfy chair and listen as I coach you on how to have a good week AND a good weekend and still be heading in the right direction.

Episode 76: How to Honor Your Hunger AND Eat with Others

Episode 76: How to Honor Your Hunger AND Eat with Others

I know you’ve probably been working on learning to eat more naturally so your body can get to the weight you’re meant to be. And that means learning to eat when you’re nicely hungry, not starving, and stopping when you are comfortably full, but not stuffed.

Hunger podcast 76

This is a process. And it’s easier to do when you’re eating alone, with little to no distractions.

But life is full and busy and we all have connections: friends, family and co-workers. And sharing meals is part of the fun of relationships.

So how do you focus on your body’s signals of hunger and fullness while you’re with others?

What do you do when they’re ready to eat and your body isn’t?

And how do you manage your hunger to fit with all the times you’ll be dining with the people in your life, who may easily be on different schedules than you?

In this coaching session, I will show you how to manage your hunger so no matter what’s on the calendar, you will be able to honor yourself AND have a life with other people.

Episode 72: Treat or Snack?

Episode 72: Treat or Snack?

Snickers before lunch? Cupcakes before dinner? Fast food after breakfast?

Treat or snack podcast 72

What do you eat and when do you eat it? If you’re a regular listener, you know that the first thing you need to do is check in with yourself and make sure you’re hungry.

And then if you are, what do you eat?

In this short and sweet coaching session, I teach you the difference between a snack and a treat.

We talk about when you might want to have either one. And how to make smart choices when the time comes.

It’s time to stop kidding yourself about your food choices. It’s time to know when to eat what. And be able to shed your extra weight and stick to your plan.

Let’s dive into the snack vs. treat debate.

Episode 55: How to Eat at a Buffet When You’re Trying to Lose Weight

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

Episode 55: How to Eat at a Buffet When You’re Trying to Lose Weight

Hi there! Do you ever eat in a restaurant?

Of course, you do! These days we all eat out more than ever before. And one of the most fearful eating experiences when eating out is dealing with a buffet.

Buffet podcast 55

You know, those restaurants where there are long, long tables of food and all of it looks and smells delicious.

You know that in the past, the buffet signaled the end of your self-control and the beginning of regret and shame.

But there’s a new way to look at an eating event like a buffet. Or any restaurant meal. Or dinner at a friend’s house where you have no choice about what is served.

In this coaching session, we are going to talk about a new way to not only eat at a buffet, but a new way to think about buffets.

With this new mindset, you will be in charge of yourself and your eating no matter what’s in front of you.

So get cozy and grab a notebook, and get ready to be coached.
