WHAT YOU RESIST PERSISTS

September 10, 2018

 

 Carl Jung says that what you resist persists. My coach and friend, Brandilyn Tebo says it, too. 

 

And if I take a look at my history with food, it also rings true. 


I used to always try to suppress my cravings for foods, especially carbohydrates (I was a self-proclaimed carbophobe).

 

But the more I tried to resist certain foods, the more my cravings for them persisted (and intensified).

 

When I was in the throes of my ED and wanted pasta, I would try to satisfy the craving with something else that I didn’t think would make me gain weight.

 

Obviously, I would be unsatisfied, so I’d go reaching for something else… AND still, I’d be unsatisfied, so I’d reach for something else until I was knee deep in a binge. 


Now when I want pasta, I just eat pasta, enjoy the food and then I move on with my life.

 

I'd put a METAPHORICAL PERIOD after the experience. 

 

Craving is satisfied so carving goes away.

 

No binge eating.

 

Just a satisfied, nourished and happy body. 

 

Now this did take time, I had to practice habituation and unconditional permission to eat, but it truly works. I no longer day dream about fetticini alfredo.

 

I no long resist my cravings, so they do not persist.
