What kind of eater are you?
The Careful Eater:
Are those who tend to be vigilant about what foods they put into their bodies. The Careful Eater may anguish over each morsel of food allowed into the body.
Sometimes the Careful Eater is guided by time or events. The may earn their right to “splurge” on the weekends if they have been “good” during the week. Being that there are 104 weekend days a year, the splurges can backfire with unwanted weight gain.
The problem occurs when diligent eating affects a healthy relationship with food, and negatively impacts the body.
The Professional Dieter:
Professional Dieters are easier to identify; they are perpetually dieting. They have usually tried all the latest commercial diets.
It’s not unusual for them to binge or engage in the Last Supper eating the moment a forbidden food is eaten. That’s because chronic dieters truly believe they will not eat this food again, and tomorrow they will start over.
It’s hard to live this way. Yo-yo dieting makes it increasingly difficult to lose weight, let alone eat healthfully. Chronic under eating usually results in overeating or periodic binges.
The Unconscious Eater:
Unconscious eaters are the ones that eat while doing another activity. Watching TV, reading, or in the car. They may be busy and eat on the go, vending machines, fast food. May go long times without eating to later overeat.
The waste-not unconscious eater values the food dollar, they are inclined to clean the plate. They are influenced by getting as much as they can for the money.
The Emotional Unconscious Eater uses food to cope with emotions: stress, anger, and loneliness.
Unconscious Eaters zone out with food and chronically over-eat.
