Mindful Eating For Mothers

Early motherhood presents a rich opportunity to practice transition-management. One of the best ways to manage the stressors inherent in this life change is to learn to be purposeful in nourishing oneself, both figuratively and literally. That is what mindful eating for mothers means. Here, we focus on literal nourishment—food. Becoming a mother is a unique time to reflect not only on what a mom eats, but also on how she eats.


Easy Ways To Avoid Mindless Calories

Mindless eating means eating when you’re not thinking about what you’re doing. It’s plowing through a bag of snacks while watching TV, or eating because an external cue tells you to keep eating – like your plate’s not empty, or there are still more French fries in the bag. Mindless eating can add up to thousands of unfulfilling (and often unhealthy) calories each week. Read More


Why Did You Just Eat That? Why We Eat

The study of Emotional eating is all about why we eat. Maybe you had had a rough week at work, and all you want on Friday night is to plop down and watch a movie with a giant bowl of buttery popcorn. Maybe you’re a student stressed about a big exam, and you’re munching on candy as you study. Or maybe your child’s birthday party is coming up and you’ve bought an ice cream cake to serve a small army to celebrate. Happy or sad, up or down, there’s a plethora of research that tells us our moods will often dictate the foods we choose to eat. Read More


Time-Boxing For Food Cravings

I have a new tool for you to try out if you’re having trouble with food temptations.
It’s called “TIME-BOXING.”
If maintaining discipline all the time feels too overwhelming, or feels like too much deprivation, you can take baby steps towards cutting back on the unhealthy foods in smaller chunks of time — a “time box”. Read More


Emotional Eating

Emotional eating affects your diet’s success. It’s estimated that less than 10 percent of those who make weight loss resolutions actually keep them. Every year, tens of millions of people promise themselves they will lose weight, and while their intentions are good, most of the results are disappointing. Even if weight is lost initially, people usually put it back on – and often more! Studies show the more weight you lose, the lower your chances of keeping it off. Read More


Eating Psychology – How It Helps You Lose Weight

It’s your moment of truth. You slowly step towards the scale that’s about to tally your entire week’s efforts — the hours of sweat at the gym, the rejection of that second helping of pasta, the refusal of that double-chocolate dessert, the stares of your family when you eat a burger with no bun — you’ve done it all. Now maybe finally, this God-like metal platform will reward your efforts with a number smaller than last week. Read More


Six Ways To Shake Those Sugar Cravings

Sugar cravings can feel so overwhelming! I’ve got some tools for you to use to help get rid of sugar cravings:You can’t eat what you don’t have. Don’t keep junk food in the house, and if there’s a goodie jar at work, keep it out of sight. If you have tempting treats in sight, every time you walk by them you have to make a conscious decision to say No. Eventually the “No” turns into “Well, just this once”, and pretty soon you’re back to mindlessly popping hundreds of calories of sugar into your mouth every day. Stay out of trouble by keeping sweets out of reach and out of sight! Read More


Why Do We Eat So Much?

It’s no secret that humans are getting fatter all over the world. The average American eats over 400 more calories each day than the average American in the 1980s. Why do we eat so much? Sugar and processed foods are partly to blame, but there’s also the problem of people eating too much food overall. Read More


Discipline Is Your Key To Freedom

The available evidence suggests that about 90 percent of people who lose weight regain it. When I got serious about losing 63lbs, the only question in my mind was how can I make sure I’m in the 10 percent who keep the weight off? I’d been a junk-food addict for more than a decade. I’m clear about it being junk food, since I was never addicted to healthful food. I’ve never known anyone to get addicted to apples or spinach. But addictions to processed foods containing sugar, white flour, and salt, as well as deep-fried foods, yes. These are the foods I was addicted to, though, let’s be honest, food is too honorable a word for most of it. Read More
