I have said many times in my videos that in order to fully recovery you must LET GO of your eating disorder. All the restrictive habits, behaviors and unhealthy mindsets that will only keep you stuck in the same old cycle. I admit this is much easier said than done…but I thought in this video I can share some of my experience what helped me to let go of my ED for good and reach to full recovery!
Last week I had a conversation with a woman who is trying to practice intuitive eating and listening to her body. To eat when hungry, stop when full in order to restore a healthy relationship with food and eating. But she went to a party and after a meal she felt full but then came the round of dessert and cake was offered. She wasn’t hungry but felt like eating the cake, after all, everybody else did and seemed to have no problem with it. So should she go by fullness and only eat the cake when she gets hungry again or should she eat the cake just because she felt like it even when she wasn’t particularly hungry? What is a normal or intuitive thing to do?
In this video, I share my experience what is the fastest way to get over your fear foods and cravings in recovery. I used to have so many fear foods and cravings – I came from orthorexia after all…but I learned what worked the best to end all my obsessions with foods. Hope you gonna find it helpful!
In today’s video I talk about this ONE mindset that is holding you back from becoming an intuitive eater and returning back to normal hunger cues. I have seen for many people THIS mindset is what is standing in their way to complete freedom. Do not let anything stop you from full recovery because the good news is – you have 100% power to change it! It is hard, but you CAN change it!
One part of intuitive eating is to eat whatever you want, whenever you want and however much you want – to have complete freedom with foods. It’s important to listen to your inner wisdom and not external rules and restrictions, to be in tune with your body and trust its signals. There is definitely more to intuitive eating beyond eating whatever and whenever but in this video I will focus on explaining this one principle.

An affirmation is usually a sentence or a phrase that you repeat regularly to make a formal declaration to yourself and the universe of your intention for it to be the truth. It’s a powerful tool to change your subconscious thoughts and beliefs, to reprogram your brain. It’s best to listen to this audio before falling asleep and right after you wake up because our subconscious mind is the most receptive at that times. But feel free to listen to it anytime you want! Hope you enjoy!
