We can plan ahead, have the best intentions and still find ourselves in a food rampage.
“I have no willpower.”
“I’ll start over on Monday.”
How many times have you said these things to yourself?
There are a few reasons we find ourselves eating out of control and it’s not as simple as having no willpower.
I had extreme adrenal fatigue and barely made it through my day. I would wake up and peel myself out of the bed, motivated only by the fact that once I got through my work day I could crawl right back in. I called it “living in survival mode”. My cortisol levels were completely off. I couldn’t sleep through the night even though I was beyond exhausted. My thyroid was failing, I developed a goiter and hypothyroidism. I lost my period (for 4 years) and was an anxious, mental wreck in a constant brain fog. Sound miserable? Well...it was.
