We can work together and you can become enthralled with eating the right foods

Can people become addicted to sugary and fatty foods? Many believe that fat and sugar are psychologically addictive. Today’s society is plagued with obesity issues resulting poor eating habits and the convenience of fast food. When people eat a vast amount of sugar and fat on a regular basis, they crave more. Because food can change our mood, it can become something we turn to when we’re stressed, anxious, depressed, lonely, angry or scared. Most people with food-related issues don’t turn to a healthy salad or to a piece of fruit, though. Unfortunately, most indulge in less-than-healthy foods, such as sugar-laden sweets or take-away, which has too many calories, sugar, fat, and trans-fats to be good for you. Most of the fast food out there is totally bereft of nutritional value. Unhealthy habits can lead to fatigue, depression, anxiety, poor body image, physical problems such as high cholesterol and diabetes, and set a poor example for those who look up to you. If you are having trouble stopping on your own, counselling and mindfulness therapy could help a lot.

Eating excessive amounts of high calorie nutritionally empty foods will result in becoming overweight and listless. There are many risks associated with obesity, such as: heart disease, diabetes, elevated blood pressure and increased probability of stroke.

Trying to stop on your own may result in a relapse or could result in feelings of deprivation, withdrawal, powerlessness, anger and depression. But with the right treatment, you can stop eating unhealthy foods and enjoy eating healthier food. If not now, when?

How long will treatment take?

Some people are able to change their thoughts and habits in just a few therapy sessions, with techniques such as neuro linguistic programming, which helps you change how you feel about unhealthy food and your reactions to anxiety. Willingness to participate in your treatment is a big factor in how much treatment you will need. We can help you feel differently about eating healthy and even about exercise, so you can get your body and mind to a healthier state.
