It is amazing how emotionally entwined we are with our food and eating habits, even if we are not actually conscious of it, this is only really noticed when we have to stop eating common foods such as sugar, wheat, and dairy. When we have to give these foods up for a special health- related diet, or to lose weight, or if we find out we are allergic or intolerant to something, to detox, or to feel better emotionally, mentally and physically. We have to go through an emotionally uncomfortable withdrawal period. Initially, the first few weeks of giving up a specific food, is when we find ourselves getting irritable, angry, upset or even bursting into tears like children do, fully grown adults are suddenly reverted back to child-like reactions because they cannot eat their favourite food.
It is understandable really, it doesn’t matter what culture we are from, every culture mostly builds itself around food, most cultures are defined by their food. Every family revolves its life around food and bringing up children has always been focused on what foods they eat. So we are emotionally imprinted with food rewards or abstinence. Our eating habits define us, they are part of our early emotional make up, when we were children we remember being rewarded for good behaviour with special treats, just as we do the same to train our pets, children are conditioned in that way. Food and emotional attachment to it, is very deeply socially and culturally ingrained and if we are told we cannot eat something, we feel like we are being told we cannot participate in an enjoyable social event or we feel like we are being punished by not being able to eat a piece of chocolate cake with Ben and Jerry’s Cookie Dough ice-cream, while we watch everyone else indulge themselves.
Therefore, I have included one of my hypnotherapy mp3 healthy eating sessions in this ebook, to help support your mind and emotions through this transition period to give up the foods that are causing you health issues and start eating healthier.
