☀️3 Things You NEED To Know About Ending Binge Eating:
01. Just not buying binge foods will never help you long-term.
02. It does not matter how badly you want to stop binge eating – if you don't do anything different, nothing will change.
03. Your smallest weight might not be your happiest weight.
☀️If your brain says: ‘Ugh I was so bad today, I'll just keep eating and be better tomorrow.’ > Let’s Try: I am learning to make peace with food. It is not going to be perfect. However, I can still choose to listen to and honor my body's needs today.
☀️ If you want to build a new healthy habit, stack the new habit onto something you already have a habit of doing. For example, if you want to start journaling (new habit), put your journal next to your coffee maker (established habit).
Intuitive Eating by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch
If you are working on healing your relationship with food and you haven't read this yet – my friend *lovingly* WHY NOT?! This book felt like a breath of fresh air and is a resource I go back to often if I am ever questioning my behaviors around food. This is a MUST-read (and a have-to-have on your book shelf).
Quick Synopsis (from Amazon): It is September 1919, and twenty-one-year-old Tristan Sadler takes a train from London to Norwich to deliver a package of letters to the sister of Will Bancroft, the man he fought alongside during the Great War.
But the letters are not the real reason for Tristan’s visit. He can no longer keep a secret and has finally found the courage to unburden himself of it. As he recounts the horrific details of what to him became a senseless war, he also speaks of his friendship with Will–from their first meeting on the training grounds at Aldershot to their farewell in the trenches of northern France. The intensity of their bond brought Tristan happiness and self-discovery as well as confusion and unbearable pain.
The Absolutist is a masterful, unforgettable tale of passion, jealousy, heroism, and betrayal set in one of the most gruesome trenches of France during World War I.
