The Psychology Behind Our Eating Behaviors with Jiordana Saade

The Psychology Behind Our Eating Behaviors with Jiordana Saade



Here’s what to expect from this episode:

Ever said to yourself, gosh, why don't I have the willpower? Like, what's wrong with me? Why can I not stick to this diet? Guess what, 98% of diets fail and it’s really not your fault. In this episode, we dive into why this isn’t your fault. You’re wired a certain way, but you’re not alone. The binging and restricting you do on a week to week basis goes deeper than sheer willpower, it’s all in the power of your mind and in this episode you will learn how to conquer it so you can relinquish that power and create a healthier relationship with yourself and food.

We dive deep into how labeling certain foods as bad or off limits can be our demise, why binge eating occurs on a cognitive level, how much the conscious mind plays in our food choices versus the subconscious mind and what to do to start taking control over your eating behaviors to bring back your power around food and so much more.

Jiordana has a lot to share, and she gracefully shared her story that took her from the brink of obesity to her battle with substance abuse to diving head first into figuring out the core reason as to why we feel the way we feel when it comes to addiction and food. This is an amazing podcast episode and I hope you get some really good nuggets out of it!
