“High achievers are not ten to twenty times more intelligent than other people; their power comes from the methods, resources and focus they use. By setting clear goals and writing them down, they’ve set their brains to achieve those goals. How it happens is absolutely miraculous and beautiful to observe. “ -John Assaraf
Using guided meditation, emotional blocks to eating healthy and feeling good are addressed. Negative, self-defeating messages from the past are replaced with self-empowering thoughts and the result is a dramatic shift away from emotional eating.
Read what The Mayo Clinic has to say about emotional eating:
Emotional eating is eating as a way to suppress or soothe negative emotions, such as stress, anger, fear, boredom, sadness and loneliness. Both major life events and the hassles of daily life can trigger negative emotions that lead to emotional eating and disrupt your weight-loss efforts. These triggers may include:
- Financial pressure
- Health problems
- Relationship conflicts
- Work stress
- Bad weather
We help our clients find new ways of coping with the issues that are triggering emotional eating. Our participants develop the mindset, ability and motivation to envision themselves as fit and healthy and of deserving the good feelings that come from being in better control of their emotional state as well as their food intake. When relaxation and mindfulness are achieved, clients find that they no longer need to eat to stifle emotions or to manage their mood.
The Stanford Method is a sound approach that develops healthy thinking and eating patterns and safely achieves wellness goals. Rather than regarding our approach as another “dreaded diet program”, our aim is to help clients develop the positive mental attitudes that will lead to lasting success.
The program is designed to help our clients become emotionally satisfied with moderate portions of the healthiest foods. We encourage clients to avoid extremes. So, our plan simply reinforces eating three meals a day; balancing those meals- protein, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats; eating in moderation; drinking water and engaging in physical activity (if a client is able to).
Our personal sessions are customized to our clients’ individual needs. The guided mindfulness meditation portion of the session is recorded on an audio CD for “at home reinforcement” which is critical for long term success. (Corporate wellness seminar participants are provided with relaxing prerecorded meditation CDs for their reinforcement.)
All of our clients are encourage to practice the Stanford Method’s guided meditation each day- with a CD initially and then, as they become familiar with the techniques, on their own for about ten minutes each day. The results have been gratifying with clients telling us that they are able to finally able to break the cycle of emotional eating.
