So, my guess is that you’d like to lose weight. But you don’t want to give up your favorite rich-fatty foods, right?
As an ex-sugar addict, I couldn’t feel you more! I struggled with weight loss for years. On the one hand, I was sick and tired of being in a body that didn’t best represent me.
It wasn’t about the number on the scale. It was about a body shape that I didn’t feel comfortable in. Like wearing clothes you hate. There’s nothing wrong with them! But they’re just not you.
On the other hand, I felt like I had to give up every food I loved. And what a depressing thought that was! Was it worth it to look good, but be culinarily bored for the rest of my life?
If you’re facing the same dilemma, what I’m about to tell you will make you freaking happy.
I restricted myself for years through diets and whatnot, and that made me inflate like a balloon and mess up my metabolism. But once I decided to eat whatever I wanted to, pounds started dropping like flies.
Would you like to know how I did it? Ok, I’ll tell you!
Step 1: Stop worrying about what you eat.
The first step is to stop worrying about what you eat. Simply because that’s not doing you any favour.
We’re conditioned to think that worrying equals solving a problem. But if that was true, your weight issues would be long gone!
And it’s funny that we obsess over certain foods. Yet once we allow ourselves to eat them, we swallow them as fast as we can and regret it afterwards.
No no no. You decided to eat something you like, enjoy it as much as you can. Make it last as long as you can.
Smell it, feel its texture in your mouth, honor it. That’s called mindful eating, and that’s super important for three big reasons:
1. You’ll start feeling satisfied more quickly. It won’t be so much about stuffing yourself anymore, but about experiencing your food.
2. Once you’ll stop forbidding certain foods, you’ll crave them less. And you won’t need to binge on the whole pack like it’s your last day on Earth. Because you’ll subconsciously know that you can eat them tomorrow.
3. Worrying is very low on the vibrational scale. To lose weight, you want to increase your vibration as high as you can. If you’re familiar with the Law of Attraction, you know that the higher your vibration gets, the faster you manifest losing weight.
If you have a severely messed up relationship with food, like I did, you must be thinking: ‘ok, all of that sounds great. But if I let myself eat whatever I want, I’ll be binging on junk food 24/7’
And you’re right! Mindful eating is a great start. But that’s only going to fix the superficial layer of the issue. To fully heal your relationship with food and get your dream bod, the next step is to work on the root cause of it all.
Step 2: Heal your subconscious mind.
Let me tell you this: If you have uncontrollable junk food cravings, it doesn’t mean you LOVE junk food. It means you’re trying to fill a deeper void with food. You use food as a coping mechanism.
You seek comfort through foods that give you a mood boost and simultaneously punish yourself with unhealthy foods.
But don’t panic! We all do that in one way or another. Plus once you’re aware of the root causes, they’re pretty easy to treat. They can be:
- Subconscious traumas
- A lack of self-confidence, self-love and self-worth
- A self-limiting belief system
- Suppressed negative emotions
These subconscious blocks are all linked. And you have most, if not all of them, to different degrees.
The good news is that once you start healing them, your junk food cravings will fade away on their own. All of a sudden, you’ll feel the urge to take care of yourself, to empower yourself with nourishing foods.
Rich-fatty foods won’t have any power over you, they won’t trigger you. And that’s when you’ll be able to enjoy them whenever you want, without packing on the pounds.
So the key is not to deprive yourself of what you crave. The key is to slowly shift what you crave.
Eva Nina Degano is an expert in Sugar and Junk Food Addiction. She struggled with binge-eating and weight loss for years, until she had a breakthrough: the root cause of food addiction is not bad eating habits. It comes from subconscious blocks like PTSD, a lack of self-love, self-confidence and self-worth, a self-limiting belief system, or suppressed negative emotions.
By resetting her mind, not only did she heal her relationship with food, but she also reached a level of inner peace and core power that few people will ever get to experience.
So if you want to lose weight and be able to eat whatever you want without being triggered, her program is what you are looking for.
