Overeating & Overdrinking

What is a protocol?
A protocol is an eating plan that you develop in order to meet your weight loss goals, and maintain your weight permanently. You specify exactly what you will eat at each meal, and when you will eat. You’ll find lots more information on how to create your protocol in the Stop Overeating videos and workbook under Assets.

What to do if I have an urge/cravings?
You allow yourself to feel the urge and you don’t respond to it. This is the only way to truly recover from overeating or overdrinking, or any type of buffering. You’ll find a video and worksheet on this called Manage your Urges in the Quick Start Skills page of Stop Overdrinking under Assets – it applies to any urge.

What to do after I eat/drink off protocol?
You write down what you ate, you learn why you did it, and you move on.
You’ll find everything you need in the video and worksheet ‘Change Judgment to Curiosity’ in the Quick Start Skills page of Stop Overdrinking under Assets.

What can I have during my fasting period that won’t cause an insulin response?
Water, herbal teas, clear broths including bone broth, coffee with a dash of cream.

Can you help me with my protocol?
Yes – book an appointment with a coach and they’ll take care of you.

 

Feelings

What to do when I feel uncomfortable emotion?
Learning to allow any emotion is one of the most valuable skills you can develop. Take the time to explore this emotion with curiosity – imagine that you were describing it to a Martian, and get really specific. Don’t judge it or resist it. It is all part of your human experience. I describe this process in my podcast – Feeling on Purpose

I’ve just started and I’m feeling overwhelmed!
This is very common because I give you way too much information to cover at one time – on purpose. Watch the Beginner Overview video on the home page and you will know exactly where to start.
