Here are 30 positive affirmations to help you stop comfort eating.
Eating feels good because we have to eat to survive. Every time you eat, your brain releases feel good chemicals that reward you for doing something that ensures your survival. The problem begins when we get addicted to these feel good chemicals and end up eating more than we really need. In time this develops into a deeply conditioned pattern of eating for comfort and mood stabilization.
Ironically, in the long run this pattern of comfort eating leads only to sickness, lowered self esteem, and depression. You can take control of this problem by taking control of your mind, and that’s exactly what these positive affirmations will help you do.
Consistent use of these affirmations will help you eliminate habitual comfort eating, take control of your weight, and rewire your mind to crave food only when you are truly hungry. We encourage you to make a commitment to take better care of your body starting today, and what better way to get started than with our positive affirmations!
