Name your many diets
I am sure you are ready for me to answer that question but the truth is, I can’t! The answer is different for everyone. The starting point for most everyone is the same: You have a food addiction. The rest of the issue is for you to discover. A food addiction is a symptom. What is it that the addiction is feeding? (Pardon the pun!). This is the part where you have to stop putting on a new band-aid (aka- diet) and look at the “infection” so to speak. Ask yourself some hard questions.
#1- When I am stressed, do I tend to binge eat? If so, when did it start?
#2- Do I associate food with comfort? If so, why?
#3- Do I self-sabotage my diet because I am afraid to succeed? If so, why do I hide behind my weight?
#4- Do I take emotional pain to food instead of to God?
These are just a starting point to help you figure out the answer “WHY?” If you don’t start with the root then I PROMISE your list of failed diets will grow longer and longer. By the way, this teaching holds true with any addiction. Smoking, alcohol, over-spending, etc, etc. Fix the root and then you will produce good fruit in your life.
