Break the Comfort Eating Habit
The 7-Day Program on How to Soothe without Food

Break the Comfort Eating Habit
Discover how to Soothe without Food

If you're comfort eater, you don't have a discipline problem. You have a habit that isn't working for you.

Comfort eating happens when food, and overeating, become a substitute for what you, or your spirit are really needing, wanting, or craving (let's face it, food is easy, accessible, convenient, and these days, you can eat almost everywhere).

Over time, the comfort eating habit can become so ingrained, it almost feels like it happens on autopilot.

Guess what? To break the comfort eating habit, you need new, better habits - and I'm not talking about "tough love" boot camp instructor kind of habits where you get better at being tough, restricting yourself, and breathing fire and discipline. That's (at best) a short term solution - and it's the recipe for feeling deprived, frustrated, and miserable.

Welcome to the 7-day program where you'll learn new habits that really, truly help you soothe - without food.

Over the 7-days of  Break the Comfort Eating Habit, you'll learn:

  • When and why comfort eating has been such a problem for you - and what you need to get unstuck
  • Whether your thinking is triggering overeating - and new habits to turn that around
  • New plans, strategies, rituals, and habits for coping with discomfort and for comforting yourself without food
  • Practical strategies for in-the-moment "comfort emergencies" and a plan for coping in the longer term
  • How self-compassion can help with comfort eating (and how to be more compassionate with yourself)
  • A new habit (or a few) to prevent comfort eating from "sneaking up on you"
  • How to build confidence about tackling overeating and decrease guilt, shame, and frustration

Here's what's inside The Break The Comfort Eating Habit 7-Day Program:

Your Habit Building Jumpstart consists of seven days of training and do-able action-oriented steps. Your daily training usually consists of a short video, a clear set of action steps, and downloadable guides that walk you through the steps you'll be taking. Each day you'll be creating, practicing, and reinforcing new habits, approaches, and ways of thinking that are designed to create success.

With lifetime access to the materials in this program, you can revisit the training as often as you'd like and use the tools included to cement new learning and habits into your life - in a way that works for you. I encourage you to spend the week absorbing the training and taking the action steps as designed. Then, spend the next three weeks of the month practicing, and reinforcing what you've learned.

The Get OVER Overeating Jumpstart is quick, easy to follow and teaches me practical and effective strategies to customize to my particular situation. I have tried lots of diets and programs but this is the first one where I can see positive results, in a short period of time. … Last night a family member opened a packet of cookies and I decided I should put them away into a container. For the first time in about 40 years I looked at those cookies and only saw objects. There was no emotional hook in them for me!” - Lynn
