Alcohol is one of the most common trigger foods holding my clients back. They have such a tumultuous relationship with booze that they have a hard time incorporating it into their lives, wherever they are on their restriction recovery journey.
It wasn’t until I started embracing my restriction that I learned to use my trigger foods to stop binge eating
For years, I tried so hard to stop restricting. I battled day and night to eradicate restrictive behaviors from my life. But lovely, that kept me struggling.
In this week’s episode of #RestrictionRevised, I’m talking about MY journey to embrace alcohol as one of my biggest trigger foods (I talk more about trigger foods here).
Now, alcohol helps me get a pulse check of how much restriction is affecting my life. I know that if I’m stressing about having a second glass of wine, it’s time to tune inward.
Instead of beating myself up for restricting, I thank my restrictive tendencies for helping me be more aware of how I’m interacting with food and exercise.
I talk to women every single day who tell me they’re constantly thinking about food and exercise. They’re trying so hard to be perfect with their nutrition and every time they fall short, they’re beating themselves up. This means that they’re continually trying to eat well without getting obsessive.
