  1. Wow, Bonus Video 1 has been invaluable for me. For as long as I can remember, I have had trouble controlling myself around chips. I tried your exercise on granting myself unlimited permission to eat them — and really did end up craving fresh, light foods after just a day. I’m feeling optimistic!

  2. Hi Alyse,

    I just completed all the video modules and I must say that the YOU module was my favorite and the most important one for me to watch. I had a question about a situation I came across last night. I went out to a restaurant with a friend and the food we ordered wasn’t that great. Since I was hungry-I ate the food but I really wasn’t satisfied from the meal and found myself eating more of the food to feel satisfied since I didn’t know what else to do in that situation. I didn’t want to embarrass him or waste money. What is the best way to handle the social aspect of that situation in the future?

    Best,

    Alyssa

    1. It’s great to hear that the YOU module really resonated with you. Even though it is the last of the 5 modules, it is just as important as all the others!

      As for your question, this is a situation that many people face. They sit down for a meal and either don’t love the food that they have on hand and they don’t want to waste money or make someone who is cooking for them or buying their meal feel badly if they don’t eat the food. Regardless of the specific situation, I want you to remember a few very important things:

      1) To prevent insulting someone who cooked food for you or bought your meal, you can always say that “the food is great but I am just not hungry anymore. I will take the rest to go and enjoy it later when I am hungry again.” If someone is cooking for you and pushing you to finish your plate or take a second helping, you can also ask to take some to go with you. No one can argue with you if you say you are just not physically hungry any more. And you are not insulting them if you say you would like to eat more at another time (even if this is a minor fib).

      2) Also, while you want to strive to have the majority of your meals be very satisfying, it is likely that you will run into situations when what you have on hand or what you ordered is not really want you are in the mood for or you don’t love how it tastes. If sending the food back or ordering something else is not an option, then remind yourself that you only need to eat a portion that will alleviate your physical hunger and that when you are hungry again later on, you will aim to find something that will truly satisfy you.

      3) Lastly, it’s important to try to get over the notion of “wasting” money. If you force yourself to eat food (and especially overeat) just because you don’t want to be wasteful, you are dishonoring your body! You are either already full or are not enjoying the food so there is no reason to continue to consume it. In the end, the amount of money you are throwing away is never more important then filling your body with food you either don’t want or need. You can always offer what you don’t want to your dining companion. And, if you must, just leave the food on your plate, even if the restaurant is going to discard it. Again, the money lost is never more important then over-filling your body with food it doesn’t need or want, especially from the perspective of someone trying to lose weight.
