Lose Weight By Saying Yes (to yourself)

23-LoseWeightBySayingYesDo you say yes to cake?  Yes to pizza?  Yes to chocolate?  If the answer is “yes” then maybe you need to start saying “no.”  Not to food, but to people.

In this episode, Dr. Nina talks about how setting limits can help you lose weight.

She explores the reasons why it’s hard for people to say no and provides guidelines for how to say “no” to others and say “yes” to yourself.

When you devalue yourself, it feels bad, and when you feel bad, you’re more likely to turn to food for comfort and distraction.

When you say “yes” to yourself, when you feel empowered, you’re less likely to stuff your feelings, literally and figuratively.   And that’s how you win the diet war.
