From internationally renowned intuitive counselor, life coach, motivational speaker and author Colette Baron-Reid, comes a 4 step, 8 week program for managing empathy overload--the hidden cause of unwanted weight gain.
Colette Baron-Reid understands the real reason so many of us struggle to lose weight and keep it off. As an intuitive life coach, motivational speaker, and successful author, she’s helped thousands of people recognize their potential and purpose. But it’s through her own personal struggles, having gained as much as 70 pounds in three months, that she discovered the hidden cause of unwanted weight gain. It isn't that we don't know what to eat or don’t have enough willpower; it's that we are responding to feeling too much! In WEIGHT LOSS FOR PEOPLE WHO FEEL TOO MUCH, Baron-Reid provides a four-step, eight-week program for managing empathy overload - the hidden cause of unwanted weight gain and emotional, empathetic eating.
This is a truly unique guide to understanding the real reason so many people struggle with weight and unhealthy eating habits. Empathetic eaters tend to be highly tuned in to the emotions of those around them. They feel things more deeply, and soak up the feelings of sadness, anger, and fear of others, which often leads to mindless eating as a way of coping. WEIGHT LOSS FOR PEOPLE WHO FEEL TOO MUCH focuses on the keys to weight loss for highly sensitive and empathetic people: managing empathy, setting and maintaining healthy boundaries, eating to support well-being, and dealing with challenging situations that can trigger emotional eating. The message is not about reaching a specific weight, it’s about putting an end to empathetic eating and healing the underlying issues that lead to it, a struggle for so many people.
Baron-Reid presents a workable, four-step, eight-week program that teaches empathetic eaters how to manage the "weight of the world" they carry on their bellies, hips, and thighs. Her program is a groundbreaking new way for empathetic eaters to understand the root of their emotional eating, their bodies, and themselves:
* In Week One, the reader will learn the benefits of managing emotions, awaken to the importance of conscious eating, and receive a simple plan for consuming exactly what the body needs.
* In Week Two, she will face her resistance to doing the emotional work required by the program.
* In Week Three, she'll learn to sort through what she's feeling, determine what's hers and what belongs to others, and begin to consciously let go of what's weighing her down.
* In Week Four, she'll learn how to create healthy boundaries with others so she's not bombarded by feelings from the outside. She will also learn about detour behaviors that exacerbate disordered eating, like “noisy" and "trigger" foods, and how to avoid them.
