Hi Heather, I’ve only been listening to you for a few days and you have already changed my life through your podcast. I became a premium subscriber the day after discovering you. I have been incorporating some things I’ve heard you coach others to do (writing what I eat, eating at the restaurant, and allowing myself a daily treat). I learned I binge and that is why I’ve gained 100 pounds over the past 9 yrs. My question is, how do I handle that urge to binge or cave into my cravings during PMS and during my cycle? Do I just talk my lower brain out of it or do you recommend that during that time to allow myself to have an extra treat within reason, so that I don’t overdo it? Even though my end goal is to lose weight and maintain, right now, I am focused on gaining control over my binging. Thank you
Hi Heather! On the community webinar, you answered some questions for me and you mentioned a couple of times about boundaries and boundary setting. Your comments really stuck with me and as I’ve been working on my habits all year, I’ve noticed that I really want to work more specifically on boundaries in 2024. What are your best tips, recommendations, books, etc. on the subject? I really feel it’s important for me to address. Thank you for all you do!
I asked a question a little while ago about managing desserts without binging. I took your advice and have a treat every day. I go outside of the house and buy a single serving and binging has reduced drastically! These foods no longer have that special appeal now that I have them on a regular basis. I prioritize protein, take a fiber supplement and a multivitamin daily. I know my diet is not the healthiest but I will work on adding more vegetables as time goes on. Thank you for all that you do! Debra.
Hi Heather, I love your podcast, community, and pretty much anything you put out. I struggle with binge eating, and I have a huge resistance to varying my daily calories based on what’s going on in a given week. As soon as I consider “banking” calories for the weekend or an event, my lower brain screams restriction and that’s w huge binge trigger for me. I pretty much feel like I need to go to exact maintenance calories each day, but when I go over a little, that’s also a binge trigger. Am I too messed up? Any thoughts you have are appreciated. Please help :(.
Hi Heather, Your coaching series with Karolina is truly changing my life. I’ve gained so many insights to help me stop binge eating. Her vulnerability has benefited so many, and I hope she knows what a difference she has made. I was wondering if you could do another q and a with her, or at least give an update on how she is doing? Lots of love!!!!!!
