Tell me if you’ve ever had thoughts like this…
I’ll just do this crazy diet thing until I lose the weight.
If I can just stay away from sugar then I’ll be fine.
I just need to get my portions under control.
If you have, trust me, I totally get it. These were things I used to think too. Until I discovered that none of them led to actual freedom from food addiction.
It kills me to see so many men and women suffering from the same misconceptions I had and staying stuck in the bingeing and obsession cycle.
Which is why l went live on Facebook last Friday to bust 5 Myths About Food Addiction.
Myth #5, “that if you don’t have a problem in other peoples eyesyou don’t have a problem,” used to get me all twisted up inside.
I felt totally misunderstood and invalidated on the one hand, and still completely obsessive and not normal around food on the other.
It completely messed with my head and made me even more embarrassed and impatient with myself.
Check out all 5 Myths and let me know if you can relate.
One thing I’ve noticed over the years of helping folks get free from food addiction is that, more than anything, what keeps us stuck is trying to fix a problem we don’t fully understand, and doing it with an insufficient, incomplete or downright incorrect approach.
This is what keeps us perpetually in the problem and not believing freedom is possible for us.
Here’s the truth, freedom is possible.
It just isn’t going to come from applying the mainstream strategies that so many others tout. (Others who don’t struggle with not being able to stop once they start eating or eating when they aren’t hungry.)
That’s why I’m so passionate about sharing the real solution to lasting freedom from food. Because that was me. And just like you, I was trying all the things I thought I “should” be doing and feeling stuck.
So I hope this video is as validating for you as was recognizing these common beliefs myths were for me.
And I’d love to hear what you resonated with the most.
