Lessons From Depression And Grief (personal post)

Part 3/3: How often should I eat for weight loss?

Watching the clock for the next feeding time is just part of going on a diet to lose weight. You may have been told six small meals per day is best. That eating every few hours keeps the metabolism going, and to lose weight, you better be careful not to go into starvation mode.  In this article I’m going to offer a different approach, and bust that myth once and for all.

3 KEY Questions To Ask Yourself When Motivation is Low

It’s Monday. And you are feeling awesome.

Your lunch is packed. You have your water bottle in hand. You walked by your coworker’s candy bowl without even salivating or glancing back.

You’re rolling along happily like this until Thursday.

Thursday. Your salad and chicken are tasting pretty gross if we’re being honest. You’re counting down the minutes until your weekend glass of wine.

[Video Series Part 2/3]: 3 Simple Strategies to End Your Struggle With Food Over The Holidays

Sadly, that way of thinking is a recipe for inconsistency, overeating, and struggle. It’s a perfect storm for overeating, and endless weight and habit yo-yo’ing.

Getting on Track is another term for restriction. Restriction is one of the biggest predictors of overeating, binge eating, and food/body obsession.
