When circumstances happen that spark change, our brains can respond with thoughts that can create fear, uncertainty, and anxiety. It’s times like this that can lead to cravings and emotional overeating.
At the time of this recording, we have just been isolated during the COVID-19 pandemic in Britain. Many of us during this time are experiencing emotions like fear, anxiety and uncertainty. I’ve heard many stories this week of people over eating, wanting to over eat and feeling stressed and unhappy.
In this podcast we’ll discuss:
- The difference between physical and emotional hunger/cravings
- How pausing and feeling your craving helps to build resilience to cravings in the future
- How to discover the feelings driving your emotions and how to process them instead of eating to avoid them
What do you think?
I’d love to hear from you – how do you manage your cravings? What has worked for you? And, how are you handling this isolation period right now? Post in the comments below, I’d love to hear from you!

In exchange for a phone conversation about your experience with this, I’m offering a free weight loss coaching session to help you get a breakthrough on an issue in the area of food, cravings, overeating, weight loss beliefs or loving your body just as it is.
