Change is hard, especially if you’re battling binge eating. But saying no to a craving doesn’t have to be a colossal feat of willpower. In fact, curiosity is the best way to create conscious change. So, what does it look like to build a new habit by way of creativity and experimentation?
Harriet Morris is the creator of The Shift Inside, a platform designed to empower women to achieve a 95% drop in binge eating without feeling deprived. Known as The Eating Coach, Harriet leverages a combination of psychology and neuroscience to help clients dismantle useless guilt and put their inner food rebel out of a job! She is also the host of The Eating Coach Podcast and the architect of The Body Confident Project, an initiative that makes mirror acceptance possible—within a month.
On this episode of Wickedly Smart Women, Harriet joins Anjel to share her struggle with binge eating, explaining what inspired her experiment to give up sugar at age 40 and how she felt better right away. She introduces us to her five-minute willpower strategy for changing habits and describes how you can train your subconscious to react differently to cravings.
