“I’ve been good,” you say, as you reach for the chocolate donut.
It’s something we say when we make the choice to eat off protocol.
This thinking won’t serve you, because it suggests eating off protocol is “bad.”
When we think we’re doing something “bad” we feel shame.
When we feel shame, we want to cover up the discomfort of shame with false pleasure.
And false pleasure comes from food that isn’t on protocol.
Then we reach for another chocolate donut.
Do you reward yourself with food that doesn’t serve your body? If so, schedule a mini-session with me and let’s talk about options. See you there.
