We can work together and you can overcome junk food addictions
Is junk food eating an addiction? Many believe that it can be. Today’s society is plagued with obesity issues due to poor eating habits and 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 or when we are anxious. Most people with food-related issues don’t turn to a healthy salad or to a piece of fruit, though. Unfortunately, most people turn to less-than-healthy foods, such as sugar-laden sweets or take-away junk food, which has too many calories, sugar, fat, and trans-fats to be good for you. Most of the junk food out there is totally bereft of nutritional value. Of course this is unhealthy behaviour that results in a non-energetic you. If you are having trouble stopping on your own, counselling and mindfulness therapy could help a lot.
Eating excessive amounts of junk food or high calorie 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, 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?
Treatment for eating junk food can be short. 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 junk 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 to a healthier state.
How is Bayside Psychotherapy’s treatment different?
Treatment at Bayside Psychotherapy caters to the individual needs of person seeking treatment. Our training and methods enable us to work with patients individually and base treatment on a customized approach. If a method is not working, we can tweak your counselling plan to come up with a better option for you. If we choose NLP and that’s not working well, we can work on mindfulness therapy. We can work in the office, over the internet, or a combination of the two. Our therapists work with you to help you overcome your eating issues in a way that suits you.
Set up your appointment by calling (03) 9557 9113 or using our contact form. We can also meet via online counselling. You can also download a recommended Junk Food TV hypnosis recording that can help you break the cycle of eating junk food while watching TV as well. We look forward to talking to you soon.
