It’s Monday!!! I love the start of a new week and I thought today would be the most appropriate day to discuss the topic of what to do when you’ve fallen off your diet! Fear not, it happens, and you’ve got to just keep moving forward, no need to feel bad or waste your energy feeling guilty. None of that!!!!
It always freaks me out when people talk about cutting food groups out of their diet, like ‘no more nuts,’ ‘gotta cut down on the fruit.’ I hear this a lot and it upsets me because already the raw food diet can seem quite limiting compared to other diets, and them suddenly people start talking about limiting it even more!!!! Oi!! We all need to be reminded that food is our Friend. Food is created by nature to nourish and sustain us- food is created to eat and to enjoy!!
On an episode last week I talked about the importance of ‘checking in’ with yourself and how writing in a journal always helps me gain perspective on what’s going on in my life and is also a fantastic tool to help reduce stress, anxiety, depression, grief and anger. Over the weekend I received an email asking me how I keep a journal, what do I write about and what are some questions I ask myself on a daily basis. I loved the question, so I decided to base today’s episode all on journaling.
In order to be radiantly healthy, we’ve got to have all areas of our life supported and strong, so along with our diet and fitness– our emotional, mental and spiritual health are just as important.
The other day I talked about the physical side of binge eating– how not eating enough during the day can lead to over eating at night. Well today I decided to talk about the emotional side of binge eating, what I call ‘comfort eating!’ We’ve all been there at some point in our lives and some of us can take it or leave it, while others rely on it as a best friend that is there for every stress and upset. We are all on our own unique paths, and nothing is set in stone– change & transformations happen every day. So today’s episode is all about emotional eating and how to stop it in its tracks.
