    Heidi Combats Her Sabotaging Thoughts

    Heidi Combats Her Sabotaging Thoughts

    Heidi is ready for a change. She's had it with going through a bag of chocolate while working late, or eating several croissants standing in the kitchen before bed. To end these behaviors, we have to explore what's beneath them. When we unearth the causative thoughts, we can get to work on changing them.

    Self-sabotaging thoughts which precede binge eating or overeating often disguise themselves as "sensible" ideas. We may even believe they are the truth.

    I deserve this. I don't care about my eating. It doesn't matter. I'll be better tomorrow.

    But they are not the truth. There is never a "good" reason to abuse yourself with food. It's never appropriate to treat yourself like you don't matter, and the odds are you do care about your eating (you just might not feel it at all times). In this episode you'll listen in as Georgie and Heidi dismantle some of the sabotaging thoughts that have kept Heidi stuck in emotional and binge eating. And you'll learn how to straighten out any of your own thoughts that lead to staying stuck in unwanted behavior patterns.

    Inner Critics, Corrective Experiences, and Asking for Help

    Inner Critics, Corrective Experiences, and Asking for Help

    Dee and I have been working together for more than a year, and as she continues to lose weight, she learns more and more about why she spent so many years of her life eating extra. Which is one of the reasons I know she'll never gain it back. She is a woman changing, not just a woman slimming.

    In this call, Georgie and Dee we talk about inner critics, imaginary competition, what corrective experiences are and how to benefit from them, and why asking for help feels so spectacularly difficult, but is worth doing.

    How to Stop Eating at Satisfied (even if you've tried and failed 87,523 times)

    How to Stop Eating at Satisfied (even if you've tried and failed 87,523 times)

    It sounds straightforward: if we always stopped eating once we reach the point of satisfaction, we would consume the right amount for our body, feel positive and proud, and live happily ever after. But... stuff tends to get in the way, doesn't it?

    Sugar, Sweetness, and Self Compassion

    Sugar, Sweetness, and Self Compassion

    Martina could use a hand with eating less sugar. She keeps trying to avoid sugar during the week, and permit it on the weekend, but consistently finds she doesn't actually make it to the weekend. On top of that issue she's feeling "like a loser" for not having solved this problem already. In this episode, we explore remedies for both issues.

    Melissa: "I'm off the leash!"

    Melissa: "I'm off the leash!"

    Melissa has always been on a diet, and feels like she doesn't even know what "normal eating is", but she's brave enough to give it a shot.

    Two weeks ago, Melissa decided to stop dieting. Instead of refusing to touch cake or candy around other people (only to binge on it in secret), she decided to try just eating some with everyone else. Instead of trying to deny herself food before big holiday meals, she instead decided to try having a normal breakfast. And what changed? So many things!

    So, what are her next steps to not fall back into dieting, and to keep moving closer to a healthy, peaceful relationship with food? Listen to find out.

The lightbulb

Oh man, the most recent podcast “how to deal with 9 emotional eating entanglement” was such a lightbulb moment for me. Well actually 8 lightbulbs. I identified with 8 of the 9 examples she covered and the responses are so simple and logical. And especially at the end when she reminds us that none of us are hopeless and that anyone is capable of x,y,z (insert challenge here), I felt very empowered after listening. Great great work Georgie, thank you!

I've Never Had a Nickname ,

Each episode is gold.

It’s incredibly rare that I pay to subscribe to a podcast’s bonus content, but I did so within a week of starting to listen to this one. If you are a binge eater and are trying to stop, this podcast is an absolute must. My therapist recommended it and every time I listen I feel inspired, understood and filled with hope. Host Georgie Fear has a really comforting and uplifting intonation when presenting her guidance, and listening to an episode feels like serious self care for me. Thank you so much for putting this out there, ladies!!

This podcast helps!

I cannot say enough great things about this podcast. They really hit on all of the nuances associated with binge eating. I have saved a bunch of the episodes to listen to again. Thank you Georgie and Maryclaire.
