Ep#15 – Beating Emotional Eating with Annette Lackovic

Stress is the #1 source of emotional eating.

…and how much stress do we have as business owners (eek…a lot!)?

So we medicate our stress with food or alcohol, some medicate people daily, others weekly.

And no matter what, the stress sees most of us getting fatter and fatter.

Especially that spare tire around our midsection from the stress hormone cortisol.

I know the feeling, it’s like it starts to grow out of control and you don’t even recognise your body anymore.

Before we know it, we are dreaming about being thin, but losing weight is not going to fix it.

In this episode, I take the reins being the guest today and show you exactly why you over eat and 3 simple yet powerful hacks to help beat emotional eating.

Being overweight, over-eating, over-drinking or any substance abuse is just a side effect or the symptom of something else not being right.

Today’s show, I cover:

• How diets only treat the symptom, not the problem.
• How to start your day and benefits of doing interval work at the start of each day.
• How to streamline your business and stop your number one stress triggers
• We talk food, and how to be a fat-burner not a sugar-burner.

*Do you best to get all fresh ingredients organic and GMO-free

QUICK RECIPE TIPS:

•To get all your dry ingredients it will cost you approximately $70-$130 and will last you for approx 2 months minimum having it daily.
• I have placed links on where you can grab dry goods online above if you don’t have an awesome health food store locally.
• Energy X is practitioner-prescribed so you’ll need to get your hands on it through a naturopath or registered nutritionist.
• The Energy X is packed with magnesium which is crucial for supporting stress management, you can also have it in tablet form. I take both… as it makes the breakfast smoothy taste a whole lots nicer with Energy X in it 🙂
• The smoothie is in replacement of your normal breakfast and should hold you over for approx 4hrs.
