This may sound incredibly simple – but DON’T do it.
We can overcomplicate this, but ultimately, weight loss/fat loss/muscle toning is hard enough without introducing unplanned excess calories.
Bingeing is avoidable for almost* everybody IF you take steps.
1. PLAN for ‘unhealthy’ snacks.
I have no issue with you eating ‘junk’ every day PROVIDED you decide how much and when. Your body, your choice – so CHOOSE!
2. Let UNPLANNED ‘mistakes’ go.
You eat a bag of chips or a cookie. Not a big deal, it happens, we all do it – smile and move on.
Now stop. NOW! Not tomorrow, not at dinner time, not AFTER the next cookie. NOW!
3. Be MINDFUL.
Stop. Pause. Wait. Be aware of taste, smell, hunger and even the movement of your mouth. Eat mindfully and slow down the process.
4. FORGIVE past binges and move on.
So you USED to binge. Your past is not a reflection of your future. History does not have to reflect forwards…to move on you have to let go of the past.
You are a blank slate. You are capable of NOT bingeing.
5. Have a NO EXCUSES mindset.
If you justify your bingeing, you’ve already binged. (this INCLUDES you conceding to your own personality…there is nothing different about you that causes you to binge. Choice is the singular cause of bingeing).
Decide right now that there is nothing that can happen that can cause your bingeing except YOUR decision to binge.
You get to choose and you get to see it through. YOU!
Take these simple steps and be the winner I know you are…if YOU decide on it.
