Weight loss plans without teaching about the feelings inventory are bound to fail!
This is again another one of those missing pieces that explains why most people who try to diet regain all the weight they lose and become yo-yo dieters.
Most weight loss plans miss this very important piece. Remember, if you have ever practiced eating without hunger or beyond fullness it was generally one of three things.
1. You had a belief that drove you to eat without hunger.
2. You had a feeling you didn't know how to distinguish from belly hunger or didn't want to feel or didn't know what to do with it.
3. You had a need pushing you that didn't identify and had nothing to do with belly hunger.
When you think you are hungry....touch your belly and ask yourself..."Am I hungry in my belly?" If you are not sure but want to eat anyway it is probably one of the three things I mentioned above.
Traditional Weight loss plans miss this all the time!
So you determine you may not be hungry in the belly, then you ask with fascination......
"What could I be believing, feeling or needing"?
To figure out what you might be feeling quickly use the feelings inventory and see what you might be feeling.
Negative feelings always point to a need , so you will also want to look at "The Universal Needs List after you figure out the need.
Negative emotions are your signal that a need is not getting met, or that you are thinking/believing something that may or may not be true.
Identify exactly what you are feeling first using the Feelings inventory page. Then identify what need you have using the page called The Universal Needs Inventory.
The following are words we use when we want to express a combination of emotional states and physical sensations.
This list is neither exhaustive nor definitive. It is
meant as a starting place to support anyone who wishes to engage in a process
of deepening self-discovery and to facilitate greater understanding of the feelings that indicate a need in yourself that is not being met and that is one of the mane reasons why you eat when you are not hungry or you overeat.
A Better copy of the list above can be downloaded at this link Feelings Inventory.
I was overweight and struggled with weight loss myself.. Use the inner wisdom and weight loss tips I learned about and it will be the missing link for success with any diet plans.
