My journey with food has been a gnarly ride. As an emotional eater, I used food as a numbing device to cope with stress and overwhelming emotions, or would avoiding certain foods altogether only to be triggered by cravings that lead to indulgence, followed by guilt and remorse.
What if there was a way to eat with more awareness and develop a healthier relationship with food?
Since my teen years, I used food as a way to cope with stress and stuff down difficult emotions. Food was a quick fix to feed a hunger that could not be fulfilled by exercise, relationships, my career, alcohol, or any other mindless distractions. As much as I thought of food as a source of nourishment, unhealthy patterns and behaviors developed involving food, which became an outlet to fuel what wasn’t getting emotionally processed in my life. I would eat just to eat or relied upon the clock to determine when or how much I ate. I missed being present to internal cues of fullness, hunger, taste, satisfaction and more. I felt powerless over cravings and guilty for poor choices of treating my body with such disrespect.
The practice of mindfulness and learning tools to develop a balanced relationship with food and eating led to more awareness and appreciation of food.
If you have traveled this path or are ready to have a more positive experience with food, there is a way to be fully satisfied and nourished!
