FOOD & EXERCISE IS ONLY HALF THE STORY!
Your unique relationship with food depends on:
Your culture, memories, personal and family history - When I was growing up I always had to finish all the food on my plate.
Thoughts, emotions and feelings – Often nothing to do with food. We've all experienced difficulty swallowing food when we're upset.
Positive and negative beliefs about what you are eating - I’m going to pile on the calories after eating this.

All impact your digestion and metabolism. Find out which emotions are known to create hunger.
Food can be a major comforter and it's at the center of many happy life events. It's only natural we would associate certain types of food with feeling happy, loved, excited or cared for. At times of difficulty we reach for these foods to bring us that comfort.
No wonder we develop cravings for particular
foods. Mine's cake the FOOD STORY is my father worked as a part time baker and used to bring home the goodies.
Recognising the emotions that cause us to reach for our trigger foods is a vital part of transforming them with Tapping . We look at the connection between the mind and the body.
Reduce your desire for sugary drinks and alcohol. Drink fewer caffeinated drinks and increase your desire to drink water!
Break your rituals and associations with drinking.
In our house, Sunday was treat day and we always had fizzy drinks. If you didn't get yours you felt hard done by.
Many of us meet up with the girls every Friday to share our troubles and some giggles over a bottle of wine.

A DISCREET WAY TO TAP AT THE SUPERMARKET
How about increasing your motivation for exercise? This week's all about clearing the psychological blocks and self-talk that stops us moving. Use EFT Tapping to support you in exploring new ways of being active and creating new habits.
Discover and release the underlying issues that have stopped you from making progress before.
Break away from social pressures and judgments and stop worrying about what people might think about you.
Tap to feel safe outside your comfort zone and excited about the new possibilities that are opening up for you.
It's often challenging to make different eating choices around family or friends. Simply saying 'NO' instead of an expected 'Yes' can be difficult.
This can mean choosing not to partake of the weekly takeaway treat when you always have in the past. It could mean choosing not to have a bit of that sugary desert your Mum has always made for you in the past - it's all made easier when you feel confident and committed to your new way of eating.
Sometimes it's helpful to have the support of a one to one session. Go deeper into a particular facet of your weight and self worth challenges. We want to make the changes you need for your individual progress.
We can't wait see how far you'll have come by the end of your first 4 weeks. True changes in emotional, psychological and physical well being and a new understanding of the way your body responds.
As we're interested in lasting change remember to be kind to yourself and that everyone works at their own pace.
We will get together once a week for a live tapping and phycology of eating session.
