The untold truth about emotional eating

It’s human nature to seek out comfort

And with the array of foods and delicious tastes available to us is it any wonder we eat for comfort, or to satisfy our emotions

Now, while there are many psychological reasons for emotional eating and many great techniques for helping you control your impulses

I’m going to ask the question…

Is emotional eating really that bad?

You may answer yes

Thinking this is the main reason for struggling to lose weight or tone up

Probably tried to lose weight or change your body shape only to be thwarted by uncontrollable cravings

Especially at times when you’re stressed, sad or even celebrating

Or in other words, when you are emotional

Sure we can go into detail about how to control stress, how minimise it or how to deal with the negative self talk that brings you down

We could address your self esteem and body image issues too

But what if you didn’t need to go that deep?

What if emotional eating wasn’t bad for you?

And what if you could eat to satisfy your emotions and then just get on with your life

Not fall into a negative shame spiral

Where you beat yourself up for not being able to stick to your diet

Where you feel guilty for eating some chocolate 

Where you think one slice of cake has ruined all your hard work

Because the truth is

Having some cake can’t ruin your efforts

Even though you’ve been led to believe one morsel of a ‘bad’ or ‘fattening’ food means you’re gonna gain weight

A moment on the lips a lifetime on your hips anyone?

^^^This type of thinking is utter horse manure

Sure, having some cake (can you tell I love cake) isn’t as healthy as having some veggies. But it’s not unhealthy

You won’t get diabetes from one slice of cake or gain a pound of fat even.

What I’m trying to say is it’s not that bad.

It’s certainly not as bad as the low carb, anti-sugar paleo proponents make it out to be

And here’s why…

You burn a certain amount of calories every day – this is called your metabolism

I don’t know what your total number is but I do know mine 

And if you’re curious to know yours just let me know and I’ll send you a simple formula on how to calculate it along with a free report

My total is 3600 a day. As in my metabolism burns about 3600 calories every day

So if I eat 500 cals worth of cake and then eat 3000 cals for the rest of the day I’m not going to gain any weight.

Because I’m still under the amount of calories my body uses.

Even if I ate 1000 cals of cake I’d only be over by 400 cals and that’s less than 1/7th of a pound of body fat.

And I’m not going to eat 1000 cals of cake every day.

Although I do love me some cake

So it’s not as bad as some people make it out to be.

Yes I can eat a lot because I’m active and tall but you can adjust yours accordingly

So imagine you knew you could still have that cake or some chocolate or whatever takes your fancy

Every single day

And you would still be able to look the way you wanted

It would take out a lot of the emotion around eating right?

There’d be no more trying to resist, battling with motivation and willpower

Trying to give up nice foods or depriving yourself

No food would be off limits

All while being a size and shape you are entirely comfortable with

And that’s why I wrote

P.S. There’s no fancy diet to this. If you’re looking for one of those this ain’t it so please don’t download it.

This is simple common sense, something all the fad diets fail to understand. And it’s only for women who are fed up going from week to week, battling with themselves whether to start another diet or to be good so they can try, once again, to change their shape.
