Ask A Monican #10 and Egg Salad

Lunch came a little early today, just because I was hungry. I tried to stall a bit with a Vita water thing, but that didn’t work so I decided to go for it. I made a wrap stuffed with Trader Joe’s egg salad, apple, carrots IMG 8900 800x533 thumb Ask A Monican #10 and Egg Saladand pretzels drowning in hummus…

    Thank you for this video!!! I love the everything you said about intuitive eating and finding what works for you. Whenever I’m having a down moment, I know I can come to your blog and find something encouraging :)

    I love your answer to question #1, spot on! Not eating enough throughout the day always leads me to overcompensate at night. Also totally agree with choosing the snack that you legitimately want, or else you wont be satisfied.

    Agree with #2 as well: I always try to do what I want, not what I feel like I should do.

    Basically loved this VLOG :)

    Love the Vlogs. I really like intuitive eating and want to get some of the books I’ve seen on your blog. I need all the advice I can get. Blah.

      I just finished re-reading one of Geneen Roth’s books and she says she gained weight for the first 3 months. (Yeah, not what we want to hear, but truth.) Then, she stabilized. Then it she lost and has been able to maintain the loss for years.

      I think she is a lot more “real” than a lot of the other IE books because she actually went through it after having weight issues for years.

    Thanks for this vlog. I think “control” is not a great word for people who struggle with dsyfunctional relationships with eating, food & their bodies.

    Control tends to have a negative effect on people’s habits, causing them to eat in a scary way. Just my opinion. :)

    I wanted to recommend 2 resources to your readers, both by Dr. Susan Albers:

    Eating Mindfully (book)
