3.Complete this worksheets

I will be posting worksheets and resources this month to help you understand why you are using food to self medicate and where your food addictions are coming from.  Here is a resource for week 1:

Check out the list below for lean proteins and whole carbs that you can focus on eating to replace the junk.  These foods will help you to feel full and satisfied.  I suggest you eat 4-6 small meals a day so that you don’t get hungry.  This will also help to keep your blood sugar stable.  Split up your calories.  For example: 1600 calories a day could be 4 meals of 400 calories per meal. Ultimately, You want to eat clean and stay away from refined grains and anything that says “enriched” or “high fructose corn syrup” on the label.

Proteins: You want sources of protein that are low in saturated fat and added carbs.

  • Tuna or other types of fish

  • Chicken breast (skinless)
  • Turkey breast (skinless)
  • Lean beef
