http://assendared.com/sex-education-argumentative-essay/ To all of you who attended the lecture on food addiction last Friday, thank you for coming and I truly hope you learned something. Many of you said that Phil helped you to see your relationship with food in a way that you had not before. A special thank you to those of you who came to the workshop and process group. Phil and I are feeling happy about how it went and honored to have spent the weekend with you all. For those of you who were unable to attend any of the events, you can look forward to Phil returning in the future.
As I reflect on this significant event, some highlights surfaced this week. First is a message of hope I want to share with you if you feel trapped between knowing certain foods are keeping you in a craving cycle, and fear of never having them again. I have this to tell you…The memory fades. The first day you don’t eat your binge food you will likely miss it. The second and third day too. But within a week, the cravings start decreasing, just like with cigarettes. And every day that goes by, the memory of how that food tasted, how it felt to eat it, becomes more faint. As one of you realized yesterday, the siren calling you to it will get quieter…and quieter…and quieter. You don’t have to do it forever. Just for today.

I ate the yogurt because there was only a little bit left in the container. I ate the pizza because we were out and we don’t get out much. I ate the pretzels because I was starving and couldn’t wait to cook anything. I ate the girl scout cookies because they are girl scout cookies. I ate the ice cream because everyone else was. I ate the rice pie because it was Easter. I’ll eat this now because I’m starting a diet tomorrow. If your brain has developed the wiring of addiction, it will create a thought that you believe is true in the moment but later holds no water. The second half of these sentences are all true. But it is the “because” that makes them false. I encourage you to practice being aware when your brain is doing this. Bring in your observations and let’s talk about them.

If you don’t have a food plan right now, do the following: Take a piece of paper (or print this Food Plan Shopping List) and down the left side write a protein, vegetables, starch and fruit. Across the top write Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner. Fill in the blanks writing one or more protein foods you will eat for breakfast, then do the same with each food group and meal. You now have a shopping list.
Whether you are a normal eater with a weight problem, an emotional eater, or a food addict, there is a solution for you. But, first you must have the correct diagnosis. I encourage you to stay curious about where on this spectrum you are and let us know your thoughts so that we may better help you realize your goals for health and happiness.
