Do You Lose Control with Valentine’s Chocolate?
I keep a hefty stash of high-quality dark chocolate in my cupboard. I love chocolate, but it doesn’t control me. Want that same peace? Read on…
Even in times of intense stress, my chocolate stash is safe. I’ll eat a square, but I don’t overeat. It wasn’t always this way. I used to lose control, overeat and regret, not just with chocolate. I’ve helped many clients achieve the same level of inner peace around chocolate and other foods.
How is this peace possible?
I let go of the emotional triggers that drove me uncontrollably towards chocolate. This drive to overeat (craving) didn’t care that I had a masters degree in Nutrition and that I knew better. I had to learn how to work WITH my body, instead of against her and thus found a peaceful place of choice within.
A healthy relationship with food looks like this: being able to say “yes” or “no” with ease, and feeling good either way. You have two choices:
- Say Yes, enjoy it, savor it and move on!
- Say No without deprivation or obsessing.
That’s being in charge of YOU.
How does this happen?
It’s not magic (even though it can feel that way).
Clear out old memories related to your most beloved foods, and you’re present in the moment instead of being on automatic. You’re naturally inclined to eat the right amount and feel satisfied.
Psst…Satisfaction is the key, deprivation doesn’t work.
And about deprivation, I hear a lot of people say:
“If I let go of my craving, I’ll miss chocolate.”
This couldn’t be further from the truth! You can actually enjoy it more, be satisfied sooner AND be in charge. There is NO downside to letting go of a craving or obsession because you also let go of what creates the feeling of obsession and deprivation.
Peace with food is not only possible, it’s your natural state of being! Even if you’ve never felt this peace, I can help you reclaim your power. You can get on with the important things in your life and leave this all behind.
