If this is you, I feel your frustration!
I got an email recently from a lady asking what she should do as she had plateaued.
Since we’re all unique human beings, it can be difficult to pinpoint one single cause of weight retention.
And since she’s not a client, I don’t know her specifics.
But generally speaking…. the most common cause for a plateau is that you’re doing too much mindless eating.
Probably more than you realise.
It’s a real trickster.
If you think about it, what makes us overweight in the first place, is that sneaky combination of eating while our attention is taken up with something else.
What is mindless eating?
Mindless eating is scoffing dinner in front of the TV.
It’s snacking on nuts while driving.
It’s chips and dips and wine while watching the game.
Here’s the deeply upsetting fact….
Mindless eaters overeat.
When we eat, while doing something else, we eat more than our body needs, which is why we plateau.
Makes sense, right?
So what can you do?
How to be more mindful.
Here’s what that looks like:
Sit down at the table to eat your dinner.
While you’re driving, drive.
While you’re watching the game, support your team.
Stop multitasking, ladies!!! Just because we can multitask, doesn’t mean we should!
Without mindful eating in your life, moving from that plateau is nearly impossible.
But with a little mindfulness, that frustrating plateau will soon be in the rear-view mirror.
If you’d like help moving off that plateau – hypnosis can help – Lighten Up might be for you.
