The Issues That Most Diets Don’t Address

Leave a comment

The Body Key Weight Loss Challenge is in it’s third week.  I loved the Aloe Cleanse and I am seeing concrete results:  less of an appetite and 5 pound loss.  However, one of the difficulties that less food uncovers is emotions, primarily the pain and fear that have been covered by food.  Painful stimuli cause emotional eaters to use food as a drug.  When that drug is taken away the emotions rise to the surface in a hurry. 

Once again, Body Key by Nutrilite has one solution and that is to form a group of five people.  Support from people with skin on who are going through the same process really helps emotional eaters to make it through.  Another suggestion is allow the pain to surface and work with a trained counselor or trusted friend to defuse it and make the necessary changes for healing.  Food is not a coping mechanism.  If you are like I am and have been using it to cover pain it’s time to stop.  Find optimal health in all areas of your life.  We can do this, together.
