Can’t stop snacking on the leftovers before anyone sees them as you put them away? 🤭

🙋🏼‍♀️ This used to be me. ‘Quick, grab a handful; they’re not looking’ Literally stuffed my face as I washed the dishes, chewing as fast as I could to just get it down. 😖

✋🏼 Now, there’s nothing wrong with grabbing an extra bite here and there as you’re cleaning up. However, if it’s feeling compulsive and ‘out of control,’ here are 2 things to look into…

01. Am I eating enough?

How to know you’ve had enough if you’re struggling with connecting to fullness – you don’t want any more food

**This amount will vary based on where you are in your journey

02. Are my meals satisfying?

How to know if your meals are satisfying – you enjoy eating them!

If you answered yes to both of those and this is still happening, here are other things to look into:

  • Am I eating enough during the day?
  • Are my meals balanced?
  • Do I pay attention to the food while I’m eating it?
  • Is my eating environment relaxing or stressful?
  • Am I trying to soothe an emotional need?

As always, get curious over judgmental and give yourself time to learn and explore!
