Mindless Eating: Stop The Habit Of Mindless Eating

Has mindless eating become a habit?

  • Has mindless emotional eating become a habit?mindless-eating
  • Is it hard to stop eating once you start?
  • Do you reach for food automatically?
  • Do you get so exhausted you don’t even enjoy what you eat?

Mindless eating is the exact opposite of what you want when it comes to losing weight. Even more important is feeling in control of your eating and yourself.

Mindful eating is ideal, but just being able stop mindless eating would be a tremendous help to stop this weight loss saboteur.

Habits can be tricky to deal with.  Some habits are beneficial to us, but others are unwanted and unhelpful. Habits are by definition “mindless” and some habits are great and we need them – we can’t consciously think about every single thing we do or we would go crazy. But when habits involve mindless eating, then it tends to be quite frustrating and even harmful. We all have mindless habits we’d like to change.

As difficult as it may seem, a habit is just a series of steps that has a beginning, a middle, and an end. It’s like a program that starts running on your computer. Something triggers it to start, and it can run automatically. It can feel like you have very little control. This technique is designed to put more control back into your hands.

Join me to learn how to use Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) to break mindless eating habits.

3 Emotional Eating Coping Skills

eft-ice-cream-cravings3 Emotional Eating Coping Skills: Consider these facts about emotional eating:

  1. Almost all diets are broken because of “emotional distress.”
  2.  Most overeating occurs in the state of “tense tiredness.”
  3.  The highest predictor of obesity is an environment of “uncertainty and insecurity.”

Emotional Eating can be disastrous to your body and to your confidence. In order to make progress, coping skills for eating disorders need to be firmly in place. Coping without food is not always easy at first. Tapping can help you curb  emotional eating, but there are other skills you can add as well.

Managing negative feelings and stress is an essential skill for weight loss. Whether you use tapping or not, you simply can’t keep weight off without being able to manage stress! Luckily, emotional eating coping skills are a set of skills you can learn, practice and improve over time.

If you often wonder “Why an I an emotional eater?” or “Why do people eat emotionally?,” listen to this audio to learn about the triggers for overeating and ways to cope without turning to food. You’ll learn to build eating and coping mechanisms right into your day.

Join me as I share 3 essential emotional skills for weight loss that can help make your tapping more effective.

Tapping For Weight Loss and Resistance to Goals

Imagine that there’s a magic button in front of you, and if you push it, all of a sudden, you are instantly at your ideal weight and all of your bad habits and addictions will disappear, with no effort, and you’ll go out of today’s session in a state of euphoria.

Will you push that button?

As it turns out, many people will NOT push the button, or would be highly ambivalent about it. For each person, the reasons will be different, but they are generally compelling.

I once had a client in my practice who realized during the course of our sessions that the reason she wasn’t losing weight was because her mother had been on a diet… and then went off the diet… and continued losing weight.

The reason my client’s mother was losing weight was because she had lung cancer. She died a few months later. In my client’s mind, she associated the outcome of losing weight with death. That’s a pretty powerful motivator, and it’s a really good reason not to get to the goal!

It reminds me of an old saying among physicians “when the diet starts working, check for cancer.” But this is no laughing matter.

This revelation only came out during our tapping session. It’s a good example of how the tapping is going to take us somewhere…we just don’t know where it’s going to take us when we start.

Often when we use the word “resistance,” it seems to imply that we are acting like a 3-year-old child. But how many people are walking around frustrated because they have some hidden agenda lurking in their subconscious mind?

Often the hidden agenda is one thing and one thing only – to be safe. If it doesn’t feel safe to lose weight for any reason, even something hidden to your own conscious mind… it just won’t happen.

In her conscious mind, my client desperately wanted to lose weight. She couldn’t think of any reason why she kept backsliding.

This is an example of “outcome” resistance, as described by Dr. David Burns. These are the folks who don’t feel comfortable when they get to the goal or feel like they don’t deserve it.

Yet, most people set the same goals every year, which is a really bad idea and very frustrating!

Besides weight loss being a terrible goal to begin with, setting the same terrible goal every year just reinforces in your mind the idea that you set goals and don’t achieve them.

Find out how to set goals to make them more achievable and how to use EFT Tapping to stop getting in your own way.

Free Weight Loss Summit

Do you make the same New Year’s Resolution every year?

Hint – It’s a really bad idea – Why? Because it just reinforces the idea that you make resolutions and don’t keep them. It feels more like a wish than an actual intention.

Rather than focusing on overeating (which is really a symptom not the cause of weight gain), Jon Gabriel’s “mind-body” approach focuses on the whole person and the environment that “triggers” the weight problem in the first place. He’s hosting the first mind-body weight loss summit (free to join.) Click HERE for details.

Tapping For The Food – Feeling Connection

  • Does your overeating seem to happen automatically?
  • Do you eat to give yourself a reward?
  • Do you get *triggered* by emotions, causing the desire to overeat?

A ‘trigger’ is anything that makes you want to eat – It’s the ‘why.’ Why do I want to eat now?

We can be conditioned from a very early age to associate food with feelings. After many experiences connecting food and feelings, the desire for food is easily triggered. You get conditioned to eat whenever that situation occurs in the future. The situation or feeling then becomes a trigger for the urge to eat.

EFT For Night Eating CD

Night eating is a huge part of how we sabotage our weight loss progress.

Eating at night can ruin even the best of intentions. It’s something that we tend to put rules around – and continually break them.

Night eating can be a difficult habit to change, until you figure out what is contributing to the problem and work
directly on the core issues.

I recently did an interview and EFT session for my weight loss audio club on EFT for night eating. The session went so well, that I decided to create a new CD on this topic. Enjoy and Sweet Dreams!
