Stay AWAY from this emotion to ease weight loss
Some people believe that guilt will help to motivate them not to eat certain foods, however, I have always felt that my clients who are the most guilt-ridden tend to over eat more. There has been a lot of reserach on this topic of reducing guilt to help improve eating habits- and there is another one fresh off the press!
The study found that guilt did not motivate people to change. In fact, people who reported more guilt when eating cake, felt they had less control over their over-eating. They also were less successful at losing weight! Imagine that, the very "tool" some people feel helps them (or should help others) lose weight, actually did the opposite. This is why so many dietitians advocate that "all foods can fit" into a healthy diet, even when you are trying to manage your weight.
