    40. Bored eating

    40. Bored eating

    Bored eating may sometimes be just that, but I truly believe it's a form of emotional eating. Our brains can be sneaky--it may be offering you the thought "I'm bored" when there's an uncomfortable emotion or task that it wants you to avoid. Remember our brains are designed to keep us safe, but we don't need to be safe from our emotions. And our brain doesn't like us to step out of our comfort zone, but you might like to go there. I discuss all this on the podcast today.

    We have this eat all day, overeat culture that we live in, and it doesn't serve us. It's bad for our health, and it makes weight loss difficult.

I'll tell you a few stories about my clients and let's see what ideas it brings up for you.
