After surveying our community, I learned that over 62% of the women believed that lack of shopping, planning and preparing food was the #1 reason that derailed them or made them feel unsuccessful with a healthy eating program.
Lack of will power was #2 on the survey results.
The tie for #3 was 'once I made a mistake I was back in the failure cycle again' and 'skipped eating and I was so hungry I binged and couldn't get back on track.'
Food stability is a still a huge, hot topic for me at times. I had a meltdown before before shooting this video because I remember all the challenges I've had with my eating disorder.
I've broken it down here to 3 very SIMPLE steps to begin to provide a framework within which to work. One meal, one food, one sensation.
For example - for me it is:
- Breakfast (one meal)
- Oatmeal (one food)
- I feel stable in the mornings after eating my oatmeal (one sensation)

You may say “that’s it?” And the answer I believe is YES. It’s the perfect place to begin today.
I would love to hear if this process resonates with you and is achievable.
If not, how would you improve it?
