Why Using Willpower to Stop Binge Eating Doesn’t Work

Do you think you don’t have enough willpower to stop binge eating?

You’re probably right.

Willpower is a limited resource and if you want to make long-term, lasting change, you cannot rely on it.

For some of us, it runs out by the end of the day, or maybe you’re able to make it last until the weekend or for a whole month, and then you completely unravel and binge your brains out.

When you’re using willpower, there is this constant struggle between what you want to be doing and what you’re programmed to do.

Your programming is in your thinking and if you don’t change your thinking, you won’t be able to change your actions for very long.

It looks like this:

Your thoughts create your feelings and your feelings drive your actions.

When we use willpower, the feelings caused by our current thinking that are driving us to binge are still there, yet we push against them in order to not binge eat. It’s exhausting! And it’s why we can only do it for so long.

If you only focus on changing the action, you’ll be consistently wearing yourself out all the time.

The change needs to start in your thinking, then the action will simply fall into place.

Changing your thinking is a process and it’s one that I want to help you with.

I do a free mini session phone call with anyone who’s interested in doing this work. We do some coaching about your specific struggles and you walk away from the call with some new insight that will help you move forward towards changing your eating habits.

If you want to take it to the next level and work with me, I can tell you about your options for that as well. I work with clients all around the world to help them stop binge eating and I would love for you to be the next success story. All my coaching is done over the phone and online so no matter where you are, we can make this happen.

It’s time for you to stop fighting against yourself. There is a much easier way for you to stop binge eating and I want to show you that way.

Even if you’re feeling hesitant because you don’t think this will work for you or that you don’t think you can do it, I want you to try anyway. Take a leap, see if this is the solution you’ve been looking for!

There is no obligation and even if you don’t want to work together, you’ll still get some good help on this call. Go ahead and sign up for your free mini session here. Or if you have questions, email me at info@coachkir.com. I want to help you and I cannot wait to speak with you!
