In this episode, Melissa talks about the link between our emotional state and our tendencies with overeating. It is a fact that most women who have dieted most of their lives, no longer trust their food choices or their bodies, fully disconnected from awareness around their true hunger patterns.

Turning to food for comfort and emotional support is a coping mechanism for life and soothing ourselves, that was created from pre-programming or in childhood, and is now being highlighted due to being quarantined and COVID 19.

Melissa shares the reasons why your body is always willing to corroborate with eating right and choosing clean, healthy foods to nourish yourself for a certain dieting period, explaining it’s your mind that needs to believe you’re worthy of the best body in order to treat it and feed it as such.

She gives you four questions that you can write down to ask yourself to evaluate your true state of hunger and emotional wellbeing.

An exercise from Mellissa: You’re going to track your hunger. Sit and write what your hunger is- on a scale of 1-10 write what not being hungry tends to be like. Notice your eating patterns and the time of day that you’re weakest to food.

Listen to the full episode,  to learn how to use this quarantine time to your advantage as you put yourself first before everybody else.

You will also learn the right amount of food you need for your specific body to be consuming without overindulging.
