Dieting Fails, It is true …

Most diets fail to address the most important aspect about weight loss and that is stress.  According to Dr. Pamela Peeke, a professor of medicine at the University of Maryland who has studied nutrition and hormones, “elevated cortisol levels during stress trigger an uncontrollable appetite.”

Research has shown that 95% of all diets fail within five years or less because they do not address the real problem.  It’s not the food that is making you fat, but the relationship you have with food.  Have you eaten when you are not hungry? Have you suddenly realized your head is in the refrigerator and wonder why you are looking for food? What about cleaning your plate and feeling miserable when it’s clean?  

With most problems or conditions like excess weight, excess drinking, excess conflicts, or excess TV/Internet we are using eating, drinking, acting out, or TV to escape the stress.  When you learn the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) you will have a tool to manage the stress right in the moment and then you won’t be feeding your emotions.
