Perhaps, like most people, you know what you should be eating, but somehow it doesn’t always go to plan. Our relationship with food and our appetite cues can trigger us to either overeat or eat the wrong things and it’s a topic that probably hasn’t had the coverage it should and that certainly fascinates us at SHL.
We asked Dr Helen McCarthy, clinical psychologist to come on the pod and talk to us about how she helps people to retrain their appetite.
Dr Helen shares how she helps people get back into touch with their hunger signals which leads to a sense of freedom and increased pleasure from food.
We talk about:
Fasting and how it relates to appetite How to learn to listen to your natural hunger cues Deconstructing emotional eating How her approach leads to increased pleasure from food Why focussing on future goals and values is the key Stepwise behavioural change and how to manage obstacles This episode is full of simple practical tips to help you understand your own appetites, cravings and emotional eating
