    EP#192: How to Eat Like an Italian

    EP#192: How to Eat Like an Italian

    How do Italians eat pasta every day and not gain weight?
    Why do they have the lowest obesity rate in Western Europe?
    Why they don’t gain weight as easily as Americans do? 
    In October, I was really fortunate to spend two weeks in northern Italy. I visited  Venice, Verona, Florence, and Tuscany, specifically the medieval walled hill towns of San Gimignano, Siena and Volterra. They were each wonderful in their own way. I had a fantastic time, and really loved it there. 
    While I was there, I talked to a few American expats. One American woman in Florence told me, “I’ve been living here for a year and have lost 10 pounds without doing anything. I eat pasta every day. Plus I can eat dairy and gluten here with no digestive problems. Back in the States, I couldn’t tolerate those foods.”
    I can’t tell you how many people have told me stories like this.  Americans who visited Italy told me that they drank wine with one or two meals a day, ate pasta, desserts, not to mention those breakfast croissants, and did not get the indigestion they normally got back home, and did not gain weight.
    The Italians are known for their fantastic cuisine. Italy was the EAT in Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat Pray Love.  And for good reason. 
    Have you ever wondered why Italian cuisine is so delicious? And how do they eat that carb-heavy diet filled with pasta, bread, croissants (see typical Italian breakfast to the right) and other delicious things, and not have the obesity problem that much of the rest of the world is experiencing? 
    Italy has approximately half the obesity rate as the United States. 
    Tune in below (or wherever you get your podcasts) and learn how you too can eat like an Italian.
    If you’re ready to learn to eat in a sustainable way that is in tune with your body’s hunger and fullness signals, to end emotional and drop down to your healthy weight, sign up for my online Weight Loss for Foodies program.

    How to Reach Your Goals By Taking Baby Steps

    How to Reach Your Goals By Taking Baby Steps

    How many times have you heard this saying?
    “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
    So many people get stuck and have difficulty reaching their weight goals (and any other goal for that matter) because they get caught in a repetitive pattern of doing the same thing that doesn’t work, or that makes things worse,, over and over again.
    Maybe you keep stopping at that bakery on your way to work, buying three pastries under the pretense that you’ll share them or save some for tomorrow, then eat them all. 
    Maybe you binge on chips after dinner while watching TV every night. 
    The Weight Loss for Foodies method is all about achieving permanent weight loss success by changing your habits and developing a peaceful relationship with food and eating. 
    Some people can dive right in and do all of the things that I recommend.
    But that doesn’t work for everyone. 
    For many people, what works the best is to take baby steps  to break patterns of overeating or emotional eating that you keep repeating to your own detriment. 
    Stay tuned to learn how you can get out of your rut and start making progress by taking baby steps to change your eating habits.
    And stay tuned for a very important announcement  at the end–and it isn’t a sales pitch!

    How You Think About Food You Eat Affects Weight Loss

    How You Think About Food You Eat Affects Weight Loss

    Do you eat foods you don’t like very much because they’re low in calories or carbs, then feel unsatisfied afterwards and still crave something tastier? 
    There’s a scientific reason behind that!
    I have something exciting and NEW to share with you about mindset and eating.  Surprising evidence supports the role of mindset in weight management in a totally unexpected way. 
    How you think about what you’re eating affects your weight! What that means is what you think about your food affects how your body responds to it physiologically.
    I mean how full or satisfied what you eat  makes you feel. 
    It’s totally consistent with the Weight Loss for Foodies approach to eat what you love when you’re hungry as a way to lose weight and experience a peaceful relationship with food and eating. 
    It’s backed by the research of Alia Crum, a psychologist and researcher in the field of mindset at Stanford University. 
    Dr. Crum  discovered that what people believed about what they were eating affected both their satisfaction with the food AND the levels of the hunger hormone their body made, which affected their appetite. 
    Listen below or wherever you get your podcasts to learn why this is so important and how you can make it work for you so you get to your comfortable weight.
    If you’re ready to learn to eat in a sustainable way that is in tune with your body’s hunger and fullness signals, to end emotional and drop down to your healthy weight, sign up for my online Weight Loss for Foodies program.
    In it, you’ll go beyond what I talk about in the podcast, and can download worksheets to practice what you’re learning and guided audio practices. The cost is less than half of the price of the coaching program.

    EP. #189: How to Deal with Comments about Weight & Eating

    EP. #189: How to Deal with Comments about Weight & Eating

    Do you have family members who make comments about your weight, other people’s weight, their own weight, or what you should and shouldn’t eat?
    Do you have friends or family who are always talking about their latest diet?
    It’s summer vacation, which for many of us means eating meals with family members we don’t see all the time. For some of us, that’s a blessing. For others, it can be very difficult and stressful. 
    For many people, dealing with their extended family is wrought with all kinds of mixed emotions and potentially difficult interactions. 
    As a weight coach, one thing I hear repeatedly from my clients is that they have family members who make comments about how they look, their weight, or their food choices. Some people come from families where the significance of appearance, and weight in particular, carries undue importance. 
    Then there’s that person at the table, be it friend or family member, who has to tell everyone about their latest miracle diet. 
    Tune in and learn why their comments are NOT OK, not well-meaning, and how to deal with them gracefully. 
    I’ll give you some tips about how to deal with these situations. 
    You can download a free copy of my PDF entitled “Managing Comments About Weight And Eating” HERE. 
    If you’re ready to dive in and make peace with food and eating, sign up for my online Weight Loss for Foodies course. It will give you all the tools you need to make peace with food and eating, and lose the weight for good. Learn more and sign up HERE.

    EP. 188: How to Effectively Use the Hunger Scale

    EP. 188: How to Effectively Use the Hunger Scale

    When was the last time you felt physically hungry? 
    Do you eat in response to your body’s hunger signals?
    Or do you eat for all kinds of other reasons that have nothing to do with your body’s need for food?
    One of the most important tenets of the Weight Loss for Foodies approach is to only eat when you’re physically hungry, and stop eating when you’re lightly full. 
    The reason this is so important is that when you only feed your body when it’s hungry, and stop eating when you’re lightly full, you give your body the amount of food it needs to be your healthy weight. 
    Most people don’t pay attention to hunger and fullness, and eat for all kinds of other reasons, like you’re bored, tired, it’s noon, or whatever. 
    When you eat but aren’t hungry, your body stores that energy as fat. That’s why obesity is in epidemic proportions nowadays. 
    BUT once you start eating in tune with your hunger signals, miracles happen! You start dropping extra weight without giving up the foods you love! You feel lighter and have more energy. Food and eating become easier and less stressful. 
    The tool I use to decide when to start and stop eating is the Hunger Scale, and that’s what I’m talking about in this episode. 
    TUNE IN to this week’s episode below and learn how totally KEY eating only when you’re hungry is if you want to eat what you love, lose weight and keep it off.
    Download your free copy of the hunger scale HERE, and keep it near where you eat. 
    Weight Loss for Foodies is now available as an online, self-paced course without coaching. In it, you’ll go beyond what I talk about in the podcast, and can download worksheets to practice what you’re learning and guided audio practices. The cost is less than half of the price of the coaching program. Learn more and sign up HERE.

    EP. #187-How to Trust Yourself Around Any Food

    EP. #187-How to Trust Yourself Around Any Food

    If you want to lose weight, how you THINK about food is even more important than what you eat. You see, your mindset about food and eating, especially if it’s a diet mindset, could be the single biggest thing standing between you and weight loss success.  The good news is all you have to do to change that is change how you think! And that’s one of the few things in life we can actually control. 
    The reason why diets don’t work for sustainable weight loss is because they teach you to think of food as scarce. 
    When you think of food as scarce, you set yourself up for a binge, or at least, to overeat.
    But when you have a mindset of abundance about food, you can be much more relaxed around it. 
    You know you can eat what you really want when you’re hungry, so there’s no need to eat food just because it’s there. 
    You can trust yourself around any food. 
     Listen to learn the many advantages of having an abundance mindset, how it frees you to lose weight relatively easily,  and how to change your mindset around food from one of scarcity and dieting to one of abundance so you can trust yourself around any food. 
    To get all the tools you need to make peace with food and eating and lose the weight for good, sign up for my online course, Weight Loss for Foodies HERE

The Wholistic Solution

I’ve listened to Shari Broder’s Weightloss for Foodies podcast for at least three years, as well as worked with her as a coach in a group format, in addition to her free Ditch The Diet Facebook group part of that time. Shari has the goods on losing weight and keeping it off in a wholistic, mind-body way.

She teaches principles that are applicable to all of life: having an abundance mindset vs. a scarcity attitude about food. She has taught me how to listen to my bodily cues, and the big deal of catching and stopping emotional eating. I’ve worked with therapists over the scarcity and abundance issue with sugar. I know the origins in childhood. But, no one taught me the cognitive behavioral approach, which is the game changer.

Plus, you don’t have to give up foods. You eat what you want, when you want, but you learn to do it mindfully. You learn how to sense your innate body wisdom of when it is slightly full and truly hungry and ready to eat. The Weightloss for Foodies method Shari teaches goes beyond intuitive eating, by giving you some metrics, *so to speak,* to judge when and how to feed your body the good stuff that will help you thrive (again, no rules, counting, fasting, yada, yada,) and also the once forbidden foods eaten in moderation.

Believe me. For decades, I thought I was addicted to sugar, that I couldn’t have it around me without devouring in embarrassing excess. Weightloss for Foodies has given me food freedom. It is empowering. Subscribe to this podcast. It’s the real deal.

I value this podcast very much. Shari’s advice is so helpful. She makes so much sense and I am always glad I spent the time to listen.

Great advice for food relationship

Shari provides great advice for how to think about your relationship with food. Her first 20 or so podcasts lay out fundamental principles that will help one learn to enjoy food without guilt and without the unhealthy obsession with food that can lead to weight gain and digestive issues. It’s so generous of her to provide this content for free because it’s valuable advice.
