“You mean I can eat all those foods I’ve deprived myself of all those years? And still lose weight? Where has this been all my life?”
So, before I delve too deeply into the topic for today (which I’ll reveal in a moment), let me be sure that I am clear about something very important regarding intuitive eating.
Intuitive eating is not about losing weight. It’s about changing your relationship to food, your mind and your body.
If someone is telling you that they will teach you intuitive eating as a way to lose weight, please run the other way. I’m not saying that some people don’t release excess weight eventually. Some do, some don’t. It’s not the point.
Okay, now that I got that out of the way, let’s address today’s topic which is impulsive eating.
The definition of the word impulsive means “actions based on sudden desires or inclinations rather than careful thought; actions based on emotional impulses; acting under stress of emotion.”
When acting impulsively, you are acting quickly or acting without fully examining the consequences.
So for example, when you impulsively grab for the cookie when you walk in from work because it was sitting on the counter, or you impulsively reach for the ice cream in the freezer after you have an argument with your partner. These are examples of when you act without fully examining the consequences. And it’s only after you finish the cookie(s) or the pint of chocolate fudge ice cream that you stop and wonder “why did I do that again?”
Does this resonate with you?
Do you suddenly find yourself eating without having even thought about it first?
Then you feel guilty for “what I have just done…again” and start to criticize yourself for “not wanting it bad enough”?
Impulsive eating can be an emotional roller coaster with triggers at almost every meal that can lead you to overindulge.
And more often than not, there is some emotional reason behind that impulsive decision to eat. It’s just that sometimes it’s not so easy for you to figure it out. But, you have the power within you to identify the WHY behind your impulsive eating. You must first become aware in order to have change.
