On Episode #2, I talk about why we are so obsessed with food and think about it so dang much.
Our brains are there to keep us alive. It works to avoid pain, seek pleasure, and be efficient.
All 3 of these things are being done when we overeat. We get to escape our feelings momentarily and get a hit of dopamine from food. We get pleasure when we eat. And our brain is super efficient – it does what it knows, and keeps repeating that over and over. Thus the never-ending cycle.
I also talk about why beating yourself up will make it worse, and how to treat yourself in a way that is productive. If you want to lose weight, this is the deprivation-free way to do so and get results that last.
