As someone who has struggled with overeating myself, particularly with certain foods like bagels and hot ciabatta, I understand the challenges that come with dysregulated eating patterns.
When we habitually turn to food when we’re not hungry, choose unhealthy comfort foods, or eat until we’re overfull, it’s a sign that something is out of whack. It’s important to recognize that most of us have absent self-regulation skills, and that’s okay.
Overeating is a complex issue that involves multiple factors, including biology, emotions, and social influences.
To get started on a path towards better health and more regulated eating habits, here are five things you can begin right now:
☕Reduce or eliminate caffeine, alcohol, and tobacco from your diet.
🌻Check your vitamin D and omega-3 levels, and supplement as needed.
🚶Increase your movement to a minimum of 20-30 minutes per day, preferably outdoors in the morning.
💤Allow for adequate sleep and rest each night.
🍽️Choose organic, hormone-free, and pesticide-free animal products when you eat.
By making small changes to your lifestyle, you can begin to repair your relationship with food and create a healthier, more balanced life.

As women, we go through many changes throughout our lives, and one of the biggest changes we experience is post menopause. It can be a challenging time, with many physical and emotional changes that can leave us feeling like our beauty is behind us. But, I want to remind you that this doesn’t have to be the case.
