You’ve tried everything you can think of: eating well, regular exercise, getting sleep, you’ve even had your hormone levels checked and you still can’t lose weight…..perhaps your weight gain or inability to lose weight isn’t on a physical level. Maybe, it’s on an emotional one.
Some people are emotional eaters. They will eat instead of feel their emotions. Sometimes, it’s not what you’re eating but what’s eating you. Observe your eating patterns, do you only eat when you are hungry or do you eat also when you are bored, stressed or there’s an emotional upset in your life.
Others, are emotional protectors. They don’t feel safe for some reason and eat to get bigger so they literally put more space between themselves and others. Do you feel safe and secure? Did you have a past incident where you did not feel protected?
There are even people who are able to lose weight and then once they start to get noticed or complemented by family and friends, start to put weight back on again. THey may not want to be in the spotlight or have a fear of success.
Whatever the case, if you are having trouble losing weight after trying physical avenues, explore the emotional ones. For more info or to see how we can help, visit our website www.neuro-optimization.com
