UnStuff Yourself –
November 30, 2019 – 1. DON’T beat yourself up for “being bad”.
• Avoid dwelling on having gone back for seconds (or thirds).
• Beating yourself up because you “went off your diet” will only bring on negative feelings of failure, guilt, and frustration which are triggers for emotional eating.
2. DON’T starve yourself or overly restrict your calories to “make up for being bad” or to compensate for the excesses.
• Starving yourself, that is, consciously and severely restricting calories, will drive you to want to eat everything in sight and will ignite the cycle of binging all over again.
