Your self-sabotage profile is: The FOMO Feaster
You’re afraid if you don’t eat something you might not get the opportunity again.
You have the best of intentions when it comes to your diet, but you constantly dread missing out on the foods that bring so much pleasure to your life.
You’re determined, but often feel like you’re not a part of “normal” life. You fear you will miss the feeling of participating in eating like the people around you are able to.
Stuck in a vicious cycle of wanting to succeed and longing for the indulgences you see everyone else get to enjoy, you just can’t seem to make progress with your health.
How to Deal with Your Inner FOMO Feaster
The first step is becoming fully aware of this trait. Learn to recognize that food isn’t the only source of pleasure. Learn to recognize the event as a gathering of people and a pleasurable time rather than the food as the event.
Build a life that you don’t have to escape from. Be part of events that bring you joy and pleasure rather than indulging in foods that lead to lack of pleasure.
Food should never be associated with fear, whether it’s the fear of having it or not having it.
The next step is to upgrade your mindset. Change your relationship with food.
Find new ways to indulge, realizing that food is not meant to be entertainment. Make time for luxurious self-care practices, events with family and friends, or alone time.
Food should be enjoyable but not be your sole source of joy.
Make social gatherings just that, enjoyable for the social nature, not for the food. Holidays do not exist as a celebration of food. Create new celebrations whose sole purpose is other than food.
We are not going to pretend that any of this is easy. You’ve probably tried to change your way of eating but became bored and felt deprived.
How can you break the pattern? Studies suggest accountability is the most effective way to ensure lasting change.
We are hard-wired to rely on other people. Even the most independent amongst us still work better with a bit of peer pressure. Work on creating new patterns with family and friends.
There are many ways to introduce accountability. You could get a diet buddy, join a local community or hire a coach.
Unite with others who are in this battle. Because there is strength in numbers!
