Here is One Boundary Too Important to Miss
I do hope you are gaining some pearls from these posts on Emotional Eating. The tips are ever so simple, but most people miss them. I promise, it will make such a difference for you if you incorporate them. What tips do you have that you might share with us? I would love to hear your comments. Sometimes I wonder if I am just writing to the wind. This blogging experience is still so new to me. It is really hard without being able to see anyone or hear anyone:)
Emotional Eating I What is Emotional Eating
Emotional Eating II Trigger Points
Have An Eating Cutoff Time
Most authorities suggest 7:30PM. This is my personal suggestion as well. On occasions that this is not possible, be sure the cut off time is at least 3 hours before you go to sleep. Digestions slows down to just about a stand still during sleep. If you eat before bedtime, hardly any will be digested.
Go to Bed a “Little” Hungry
When you go to bed a “little” hungry, you will wake up hungry and this is good. Another key here is: Eat breakfast. Many (most) overweight people skip breakfast. Skipping breakfast continues the body operating in the slow gear of sleep with low metabolism. Let’s turn the tide.
“Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” Ps 124:8
Keep Your Metabolism Running High
Eating breakfast allows you to stretch the number of hours your metabolism runs on high. This results in more calories burned in the entire day.
Eating first thing in the morning has a positive effect on your metabolism, your energy and the results of how you will eat the rest of the day.
Most all night eating is emotional eating. This 7:30pm cutoff will be a strong tool in your arsenal to combat emotional eating.
