Overcoming Negative Thoughts About Eating
A Non-Diet Approach to shutting down thoughts from "Diet dictators" and "Calorie Controllers" and create a positive relationship with food
Do you feel guilty about your food choices?
Have you ever eaten a food item you like only to be riddled with guilt after?
Are you being tormented and bullied by the “food police voice”?
"The Food Police voice is the set of unreasonable rules that dieting has created. The police station is housed deep in your psyche and its loudspeaker shouts negative barbs, hopeless phrases, and guilt-provoking indictments. Shutting down and chasing the food police away is a critical step in improving your relationship with food and returning to eating intuitively." ~Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch
This workshop is for you if you want to get rid of your diet rules and learn to trust your innate body wisdom.
You should take this workshop if you have a long list of food rules that make figuring out what to eat exhausting and complicated. For example:
- Carbs are bad for you
- I can’t eat fruit, it has too much sugar
- Don’t eat anything after a certain time of day
- Snacks are bad for you
- Can’t eat past a certain number of calories or points for the day
- Must restrict or burn off any treats consumed
You don't need to live this way, and yes, you can still be healthy!
In this workshop you will learn how to:
“Shout a loud “NO” to thoughts in your head that declare you’re “good” for eating minimal calories or “bad” because you ate a piece of chocolate cake.
- Where do the negative and guilty thoughts come from?
- The different types of problematic voices that you may encounter
- How to challenge the negative voices
- Learn how to reframe your negative food thoughts
- Determine your own food rules
- Determine how your past learned behaviours around food are impacting you today
Learn how to take charge and re-learn how to challenge these thoughts so you can flourish in your relationship with food.
Imagine still being able to work on your health and eat in a way that fuels your body well without these damaging thoughts:
“I was so bad, I ate dessert.”
“Do you really think you should be eating that brownie?”
“Are you actually going to eat all that pasta, I thought you were trying to be good this week?”
“You aren’t going to eat that cookie, are you? You’ve eaten so much junk food lately.”
“Bread is bad for you."
“Bananas will make me gain weight”
If you are ready to deal with this internal battle and renew your mind, then this is the workshop for you!
Susan will help you evaluate your beliefs around food and diet and show you how they can have a big impact on your health and influence your food choices.
