Episode 35: Negotiating With Yourself Over Food


Negotiating With Yourself Over Food



Summary:


In this episode, Molly talks about the habit of negotiating with yourself over food and how to stop giving in to the primitive brain. She gives some practical advice on how to avoid the trap of making excuses and stick to a reasonable weight loss plan.


We argue with ourselves because we are still building new habits, Molly says. The idea is that we need to build the necessary confidence to continue making the right choice when temptation hits. Part of this involved taking control of our thoughts. A key takeaway from this episode is that we can train ourselves to pay attention to our thoughts, and in that state of awareness, decide to do what we have actually set out to do.
