I am no stranger to wonky eating habits, particularly since being peri-menopausal (hello massive sugar cravings & ever expanding waistline)
I have been searching for the reasons WHY I can't change, yet other people around me can. It's been driving me bonkers (and also it's sent me into a bit of a shame spiral) wondering why I'm a fully grown up adult, yet to date have not been able to 'Sort. It. Out.'
That is, until now.
I've figured out my own unique method to understanding why I haven't got any willpower when it comes to evening snacking (that's the polite version). Why I can't just 'choose' better. The reasons have been staring me in the face. And now I want to share them with you.
I'm not a nutritionist. I'm not a dietician. I'm not going to be teaching you WHAT to eat. I'm not going to suggest that you replace your spaghetti with courgetti. (gimme a break!)
What I am going to do, is explain to you WHY you eat the way you do. I'm going to let you figure out EXACTLY what's stopping you from making your own changes. And for you to create the eating habits you've wanted for years. It's going to be lightbulb central! And I can't wait!
I just had to share - yesterday I actually reversed out of the McDonalds drive through! I caught my old familiar thoughts of 'I'll just get small fries' and then said NO! I realised I didn't actually want them, and drove away laughing to myself! Louisa, you are a magician, thank you so much!!
You've realised that when it comes to food, willpower is just NOT a thing.
The peri-menopause is causing havoc with your emotions & eating your feelings is winning despite your best efforts.
You KNOW exactly what you need to change, but want help breaking old habits
You're able to choose well, and love eating everything without any guilt or shame.
You prefer to go it alone, and try lots of free stuff online.
You're actually feeling good at the moment - hurrah!
