Women have stopped asking for what they need and want because being the woman who can “do it all” is seen as a strength. But, what has happened is that women, in general, are not being taken care of, have little pleasure in their lives, and give, give, GIVE without getting anything back (this is no one’s fault but yours, btw).

Food then becomes your only source for pleasure (cookies taste too good to stop), for a break (I was just so tired I needed an afternoon pick-me-up) and for love (after my fiancé went to sleep, I go for the ice cream, I can’t help but eat the whole thing).

Long story short: Ask for more, crave food less.

In the comments below, I would love to hear what you’ve been dying to ask for, but have kept your mouth shut.  Let it out, tell the world! And start to see how your eating magically shifts.

Sarah Jenks, founder of theBreathtakingBride.com, helps women fall in love with their bodies and lose weight through exploring the emotional reasons of why we eat. Sarah believes that you can talk about the benefits of broccoli until you are blue in the face, but real change won’t happen until we pull back the veil of fad diets and calorie counting to reveal the true cause of our over eating.
