I have come up with an easy way to remember them using the acronym Zombie (unicorn Emoji)
1. ZAP FOOD THOUGHTS:
Obsessive food thoughts are what drive you to binge in the first place, for some people this starts in the morning and that’s all you can think about the rest of the day!! In order to make sure that we change this, we need to start our mornings the right way. Mindfully add the thoughts you want to think, eat an energising breakfast and make sure you don’t go hungry through the day will start quietening down our mind
2. OVERCOME NIGHTTIME EATING:
We have been so busy processing life during the day that we do not have time to process emotions. In the evening our bodies want to decompress!! If you don’t give yourself time to decompress when you get home, you will comfort in that bag of chips quicker than your logical brain can tell you to stop.
3. MANAGE ANXIETY AROUND FOOD:
Take the anxiety out of a meal by becoming more neutral around food, let go of perfectionism and turn to gratitude that you have a meal. Managing your general anxiety levels will also help with anxiety around food
4. BEAT SELF SABOTAGE:
Self-sabotage stems from not making yourself a priority, start saying no to commitments that do not serve you. Be clear on your why, if we honour our why, we are more likely to stick to choices that align with our values and goals
5. IGNORE FOOD AND BODY RULES:
Make peace with food by letting go of all the food rules put together by the diet industry, start following your intuition on what serves your body well from a food perspective. Unfollow accounts that promote body shame, we are very often triggered by visuals of those before and after pics
6. ENJOY FOOD FREEDOM
Enjoy your food mindfully, honour your fullness and make sure to indulge every now and again so you don’t feel deprived!!
