Do you want to stop emotional eating ? The kind of eating you do to help you feel better when all it does is make you feel worse?
Many people were programmed in childhood by well-intentioned adults who taught them to eat everything on their plate, or unconsciously conditioned them to associate love with food.
Some people, like myself, took on our extra pounds after sexual assault, as a subconscious way of protecting ourselves.
Whatever the reason for your emotional eating, I want you to know that you are not alone and there is a permanent solution. I know -- I have been there -- and I have helped hundreds of people stop emotional eating. And we are cured.
That is not to say I never ever have an occasional piece of dark chocolate when my hormones are raging. The difference is I can have one piece and be satisfied.
Some of us were traumatized when we were young. Perhaps it was bullying by school mates, siblings, teachers or we experienced feelings of failure. Perhaps it was the dreaded fitness tests in front of the entire class. Those kinds of upsetting experiences in childhood often create unconscious ways of acting out when we become adults.
The only way to effectively deal with these types of unconscious programmed behaviors, is to get to the root cause and make change at BOTH the conscious and subconscious level. That is how to stop emotional eating.
Over the years I have worked with hundreds of people who have come to me to learn how to stop emotional eating. One student I was worked with, recalled a period of her childhood when she was being constantly teased by other kids. Every time there was an incident, her mom tried to cheer her up with ice cream and cookies.
Fast forward to adulthood and guess what? Whenever she would get upset, you guessed it... ice cream and cookies.
As an adult, her subconscious mind was running on an outdated program from childhood. With self hypnosis weight loss, she was able to re-program her subconscious mind and change her self-sabotaging behavior.
Once she got to the root cause and reprogrammed her child mind with adult wisdom, she didn't have to learn how to stop emotional eating. The behavior change was automatic
Another student had a different kind of 'aha' moment during the "root cause" exercise:
She was a self-proclaimed workaholic, an overweight insomniac with high blood pressure. Her problem related to her work habits. She would go all day, never stopping to eat.
When she got home at night she was famished and unconsciously gulped down whatever she could find.
By interrupting her subconscious mind programming her whole life changed.
She is so much happier. Her blood pressure is under control and she has maintained her ideal weight for over two years now. Everything gets easier when your mind power is working for you.
It drives me a bit bonkers when people insist that diet and exercise are the only solution for weight loss. Of course they are important but what good are they if you can't stop binge eating, or you lack the motivation to exercise?
If you don't take the time to get to the root cause of your habits and /or address the triggers that causes bad behaviors, how will you stop emotional eating? It is such a waste of time and energy! What is worse, it will be another thing to feel bad about.
In the Mind To Succeed Weight Loss System, I guide you through mental exercises that help you both identify and manage the weight factors that contribute to your specific situation, in a way that takes into account the undeniable fact that you are a whole wonderful, complex human being.
When you get your subconscious mind working for you --- aaahh well now --- you have the secret to success.

As someone who is a huge fan of Mandy’s work, I was thrilled to hear about the release of her new Mind To Succeed Weight Loss Program. I recently lost 30 pounds and owe much of my success to her tools and teachings. (I only give her partial credit because she told me what to do and how to do it, but I had to follow through and change some thoughts and actions).
But here’s the deal - the techniques are easy to do and the program is the most comprehensive of any I have ever tried – and I have tried almost all of them! But more importantly, Mind To Succeed isn’t a diet program. It is a wellness program that will teach you how to lose weight while arming you with the knowledge and tools you need to create long-term, sustainable weight loss success.
No more yo-yo dieting. No more “bad” foods. With Mandy’s program, emphasis isn’t on what you can’t eat, but rather why you eat, how to eat and how to create habits that will support a healthy, lean body for the rest of your life.
Now in my 60’s, losing weight had become harder than ever before. Diets that had helped in the past were no longer working. I thought I had developed a stomach disorder due to pain, bloating and other digestive problems. And, with so much diet advice on the market (much of it conflicting) I was so confused I didn’t know what to do or what would work the best for me. I felt defeated before I even started.
Now I eat what I want without weight gain or stomach pains. I went from a size 12 to a size 6 and am told daily that I look much younger then my age. I have a confident self-image and positive mind-set that supports good habits and techniques that I learned from Mandy and her program.
