TinyActionTV Episode #20: One Powerful Question to Help You Drop Binge Eating

If you've been around TinyActionTV for a while, then you know one of my favorite things to say is, "you are never in control but you are always in choice."

How many times have you said, "if only I could just control my eating, then everything would be okay?"

But it's that trying to control that ends up backfiring that has you eating all the chips in the store.

So, that is why developing your capacity to be in choice is one of the key aspects to getting through out of control eating patterns. 

I have a whole big framework ofEmpowered Choice that I like to teach, but today I'm gonna offer you just a tiny and powerful part.

Value-driven choices. Make choices that are driven from your values.

 

Ask yourself the powerful questions about your values. How do you want to feel? What do you really care about?

Make your food choices informed by these answers. 

For example: I choose to honor my value of pleasure, and to revel in eating this piece of cheesecake.

Or, I choose to value my honor of health, and choosing a food that I know is going to give me sustained energy and feel good in my body.

When you can harness your values, it can make it much more easy to make choices, instead of trying to control what you're eating and having it back fire on you. .

So for your tiny action today, I want you to ask yourself this question: What value do I want to honor with this food choice?

Empower your choice.
