Episode 133: Why Planning Ahead Really Works

Let’s take an honest look at how you’re deciding what to eat and when to eat.

Planning Podcast 133

If you’re letting triggers other than physical hunger determine what and when you eat, you’re not alone.

There are many triggers to eat that have nothing to do with physical hunger in your body. But continuing to be triggered to eat without hunger will not get you to your goal.

Triggers to eat are all around us, all the time. And they’re not going anywhere. What’s important is to learn how to respond to them in a way that actually helps you.

You already know I believe in planning ahead of time, both for what and when you eat. So, in today’s coaching session, let’s look at why planning works and why it’s important to your weight loss success.

I’ll explain why you’re susceptible to triggers (hint: it’s your lower brain) and what you can do about it. I’ll show you how you can retrain your brain. How you can create new programming (using your higher brain) that will build new habits in response to old triggers.

You may resist planning because of old associations with dieting rules and restrictions. We’ll talk about that in this coaching session, too.

Planning works because when you plan ahead – deciding ahead of time what and when you will eat – you are using your brain’s executive functions. And that provides you with guidance that always serves your highest good. Planning ahead is a foundational skill of eating like a natural eater.

Let’s get started so I can show you why planning really works and how you can begin using this tool today.
