Summary

Do you eat to escape from worries, relieve stress, or to comfort yourself?

A more successful life with food means acknowledging and respecting your personal limits. These are not limiting that restrict what you can have, which is an artifact of the dieting mindset. These are the limits within which you know you can maintain control and free will, enjoying both your food and your dignity.

When we stay within our limits, we can relax and enjoy ourselves, creating only good memories along the way. If we exceed our limits, we act in ways we later regret, whether physically, emotionally, or both.

Regret of any kind is one of the clearest signs that a limit has been exceeded. In the moment of regret, we would give anything to go back in time and be able to stop just before we hit the limit, but we can never undo it once it’s happened.

The secret is to respect your limits in the first place; using them effectively means maximizing your good times, not detracting from them.

This guide covers the following;

  • The emotional brain revealed
  • History of problem eating
  • How to stop emotional eating
  • The role of family and society in binge eating
  • Habits that make binge eating worse
  • Why therapy is so important
  • The science behind emotional eating
  • A step-by-step guide to eating intelligently
  • Lapse prevention
  • The body can heal itself.
  • Complementary therapies...and more!

You’ll find that the concept of limits also applies to various practices; some practices will work for you and some won’t.

For example, you might be able to keep some tempting foods in your home without suffering a loss of personal control, but not others.

You’ll probably identify a number of foods that you can enjoy with control at certain times or in certain circumstances, but which become risky for you otherwise.

Some foods might be okay for you while watching TV, but if you’re like most people, it won’t be many. Some foods might be safe for you when you’re alone, while some probably won’t.

Perhaps you can maintain your mindfulness more in some social situations than in others. Or maybe you’ll find that you can hold it together at any type of social gathering as long as you don’t attend a lot of them, or if you limit how much time you spend when you go.
