Seriously, I wanted everything under the sun.
I kept going back into the kitchen and taking bites of things or munching and just stuffing things down because 'I could'.
I started avoiding the kitchen because 'I couldn't control myself' or sometimes I would even sit on the couch because I'd be CLOSER to the food.
Then, I asked myself, "why am I ACTUALLY doing this?"
I knew I didn't really need the food because I was full. I also knew I wasn't enjoying it as much because I was full. And I was also eating it so quickly I barely even tasted it.
So what was I REALLY doing it for??
In all honesty, I was afraid to shine the light on the darkness of my hidden truth...
Then it hit me, "I'm eating because I can. I'm tasting my freedom. I'm eating whatever because now it's 'okay'. I'm doing this only because I can, not because I want to".
Whoa. There is it. The light couldn't have been ANY brighter...ouch.
I realized that I didn't really want to eat the food I was munching, my body certainly didn't respond well to it, and I didn't even taste it anymore.
I was only doing it because it GAVE ME CONTROL.
I wanted control SO bad that I was gaining and taking it it by just showing myself that I could eat whatever I wanted without any rules or restrictions.
My life seemed so purposeless at that point that it was a very easy and accessible way for me to just have some sort of POWER over my life and myself.
This was something I could CHOOSE something I could CONTROL.
And what I then realized was that by seeking control, I lost it. I lost all my control. I wasn't empowering myself. I wasn't fulfilling myself or supporting my journey.
I was crushing everything in my hands because my grip was so tight because I was too afraid to just let it go and embrace the power within me already.
When I let go, I gained control.
When I stopped trying to fill this hole in my life with food, I actually found more enjoyment and more health.
But I couldn't do this without first saying out loud that, "I'm only eating all this because I can".
When we restrict ourselves, we want more of it--that's proven in psychology.
So what does this mean?
It means that in order to ACTUALLY have the control and the freedom we want, we must SURRENDER.
I see this all the time in every area of life with the people I work with, especially with nutrition.
So many people have committed to this idea that we must restrict and hate the change and have a hard time to achieve results that when the weekend comes or the box of cookies are in front of us or the chips are out we just 'can't control ourselves'
The reason you 'can't control yourself around food' is because you are trying so hard to monitor, judge, track, and ridicule every, single, detail of your choices that you FORGET to give yourself FREEDOM.
The all time best decision maker already lies within you.
Your intuition KNOWS what your body needs in order to OPTIMIZE. Unfortunately, many have forgotten how to really listen and honor their intuition.
This is a huge area of focus in my 4 Week Food Freedom Academy which focuses on;
It's time for you to trust your intuition, release your fear of foods, and feel amazing about the food you choose to nourish yourself with daily.
