5 Tips to Overcome Binge Eating

fruit 5 Tips to Overcome Binge Eating

My philosophy about nutrition has radically changed since I first lost weight back in 2009. I lost it by counting calories, but ate a lot of processed foods that I thought were healthy back then. I learned about clean eating a couple years ago and it has radically changed how I eat.

I honestly just recently stopped counting calories because it was taking over my whole life and became an obsession. It was not a healthy obsession either. I fully believe that we should not eat more food than we need (although I often want to because I LOVE food haha), but the calorie thing just drove me crazy.

All calories are not created equally. I could eat 5 chicken breasts for about 500 calories (I would throw up if I ate that much and could not do it, this is just an example) or I could eat 2 big cupcakes 500 calories. Which one is going to keep me fuller for longer and which has more nutritional and health benefits? I think you know the answer. icon smile 5 Tips to Overcome Binge Eating

So, my philosophy is to eat when you are hungry and stop when you are full. Eat foods that make you feel good and be mindful of how each thing you eat makes you feel. If it makes you feel sluggish or sick, listen to that. It’s your body’s way of telling you what it needs to thrive. I eat clean 98% of the time, but believe in a cheat meal or a couple of treats throughout the week. Otherwise you will go insane. And like I said, I do not count calories.

binge eating 5 Tips to Overcome Binge Eating

I have struggled with binge eating over the last couple of years because I tried to follow too strict of diets that eliminated like everything known to mankind. So my tips to overcome binge eating would be:

  1. Don’t restrict anything from your diet unless you have a severe allergy or medical reason for you to do so
  2. Practice everything in moderation
  3. Treat YO SELF!
  4. Find a healthy replacement for when you’re craving (I love to have a coffee or drink La Croix flavored sparkling waters when I want to binge)
  5. Keep yourself busy and keep your body moving and you won’t have time to think of everything you’re craving

Hope this helps my friends! I know the struggle, and the struggle is REAL! Nutrition is the hardest battle, but if I can overcome it anyone can! icon smile 5 Tips to Overcome Binge Eating

Your Mind Controls Everything

Your Mind Controls Everything Your Mind Controls Everything

 

Am I a coach? Yes! Do I love eating healthy & working out? Duh! Am I motivated to most days? For the most part, sometimes I still feel like my old 200 lb self though! Today was NOT one of those days though where i felt motivated, just being real. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed, wanted to keep sleeping, was beating myself up for everything imaginable. Seriously, your mind controls everything.

But you know what? I’m SO thankful for Jesus to get me through anything, for my accountability partner, & to be a part of the online groups that I’m leading because they help keep me on track! And guess what else? None of these people I knew before, my accountability partner I didn’t know, yet they’re the most amazing group of people ever! People are losing the amount of weight I’ve lost (60 lbs) in just MONTHS, whereas it took me a little over a year because I didn’t have accountability or support. Your mind controls everything.

I took some extra time feeding my mind with positivity because we determine what thoughts come in to our minds & stay. Like Pastor Steven says, make a decision what you let in & out of your life so you don’t let certain thought patterns control your mind. I’m so thankful for my group & my Jesus today!! Your mind controls everything, feed it something positive.

In today’s video I wanted to address just how your mind controls everything. I actually made this video for my group, but wanted to share it with y’all as well icon smile Your Mind Controls Everything

So let’s watch today’s message on how your mind controls everything.

Help Feed America

Help Feed America Help Feed America

 

Happy Thursday! I’m so excited today to tell you about an amazing promotion that Beachbody is doing for the month of November that I get to participate as a coach. We are partnering with the organization Feeding America to help feed all of those hungry people out there this holiday season. Did you realize that there are 49 million people forced to make a decision between either food or heat (or some other necessity)? This breaks my heart! I really need you to help feed America with me!

The statistics of the people who are out there hungry and suffering are so alarming. It equates to about every 1 in 6 Americans, which would be literally 26 states worth of people. This just makes me so sad & we have GOT to do something about this issue! There are so many people out there with too much money & too much food. People throw away food every day because it goes bad. People are living in gluttony, while there are millions of people out there starving just in America alone! I personally contribute part of my tithes monthly to feed orphans, so I TRULY believe in this cause! So please join in this cause with me to help feed America.

This makes me so proud to work for a company supporting such a good cause. Our mission already is to “help people lead healthy fulfilling lives” & we are changing lives every day. But, what a better way to pay it forward by helping millions of people. For the month of November, every discounted fit pack that is purchased Beachbody will give $20 to Feeding America. For every $1 we give to them, it helps distribute 9 meals. So for each discounted fit pack you are helping distribute 180 meals. That is AMAZE if you ask me!

Beachbody will be donating a MINIMUM of $250,000 to Feeding America. I LOVE it!! So, please come help me with this amazing cause to help feed millions of hungry people this month. The details are below and you can also contact me to chat more.

Give Receive Help Feed America

I can’t wait to help you achieve your goals & also help distribute 180 meals once you join my upcoming fitness group! icon smile Help Feed America

Please RT & share this as much as possible so that we can help feed America!

How to Overcome Emotional Eating

how to overcome emotional eating How to Overcome Emotional Eating

Emotional eating is something that so many people struggle with on a daily basis. It is definitely something that I’ve struggled with most of my life. Whenever I’m stressed, I tend to crave carbs & sweets. Whenever I’m upset or sad, I tend to not want to eat. Certain foods also cause us to binge, leading to even more emotions. I’ve started learning so much lately about how to overcome emotional eating, so I want to share it with you.

  1. Figure out your mood. Keep a journal & jot down notes of how you’re feeling whenever you eat something. Keep note of your mood & what you ate.
  2. Ride the wave of your emotions. Emotions and life has ebbs & flows. Try just riding out those emotions instead of going overboard with eating or doing something that you’ll regret.
  3. Don’t empower your vices. Eating unhealthy foods when you have negative emotions can create your body to feel like you need those foods. Grab something healthy like a fruit or veggie instead.
  4. Healthy coping. Try doing other things to deal with your emotions. Go outside for a walk, call a friend, meditate, pray.
  5. Conquer the hard times. Stop telling yourself you’re too busy, you’re too stressed, etc. now to lose weight or get healthy or get your eating in control. Challenge yourself to stay healthy even in stressful times.

I know that overcoming emotional eating can be very difficult. But, by applying these few things that I just gave you it’s totally helped me out. I wanted to teach you how to overcome emotional eating so that you’re no longer looking at this cupcake like I so often did.
