Welcome to my Blog
Can’t stop eating after your refeed meal? Save this blog post or screenshot the infographic for your next one!
Before a refeed, cheat, or free meal it is important to set a positive intention for your meal and how it will be used by your body
It’s important to really listen to what your body wants and needs. Don’t have a donut just to have one, refeeds are a good time to ask your body what she really really wants. You may be surprised by her answer!
A common thing that comes up though occurs AFTER the meal. Where many people can’t stop snacking, eating, or thinking about food
Following this infographic is a good place to start
But I want to touch on the very last bullet on the list
Many of the competitors I work with on their relationship with food who struggle with this tend to have some things in common
A- they never let themselves have certain foods so when they get permission they go ham
Solution: incorporate more of those foods in your weekly diet. Talk to your coach about it or work it in. If you’re in improvement season you have more wiggle room usually
Reasoning behind this? If you know you can have a bag of chips every day, chances are you won’t want them as badly
Amazing how many of us are conditioned to think the path to freedom comes with more restriction🙅🏻♀️
B- they are feeling emotional. They feel like they over did the meal so they start to feel guilty or ashamed and say well “f it then” and eat more
Solution: have a set of rituals for before and after you eat it makes a HUGE difference & is worth the time and energy investment
(if you want ideas I made a video about it but the best of em are in my food relationship healing and discovery journal program. You can apply for that program HERE or email me back for more details)
C-They haven’t had it in foreeeverrrr. Similar to A except this is usually something they realize has been so long since they had (often times from childhood memories)
Solution: see A solution again anddddd go back to B as well. Reflecting on where the desire might truly be coming from is a good start
Is this something you’ve struggled with or do struggle with?
