The Last Supper Effect (binge eating)

Have you ever had that ‘one’ last blowout on all the foods you love before starting a new diet?
​​​​
Me, too…

Peanut butter. Bread. Cereal. Pizza. Cake. Biscuits. Pringles. Avocados (these are syns LOL)

You name it..

And it’s not uncommon for some of the ladies who I’ve worked with to tell me how they eat their kids chocolates and have to replace them (multiple times) before this ‘new diet’ comes along..

You see, you are NOT ALONE..

even though you probably know from reading my stuff that NO FOOD IS OFF LIMITS…

It is only human nature to associate a new diet with scarcity / deprivation. Which results in you thinking that you need to stock up.

They term it ‘The Last Supper Effect” and even found in research that when they tell me people that they are about to go on a diet, they gain weight in the time they were told about the diet and the time to start.

So where does this come from?

Well, it’s the ‘diet’ culture.

They tell you to restrict certain foods. That foods are bad.

And the only way to get around this if you suffer from this?

Is to STOP restricting foods.

The most ironic part for me is how restricting so called ‘bad’ foods to be healthier…results in behaviours, like binging, which are actually worse for your health…

​​In fact, some of the ladies I work with mention how they just eat anything and everything when they start a diet. 

Even foods they wouldn’t normally eat…

And just out of curiosity, are there any foods that you feel you can’t eat in moderation?

Are there any foods that you eat freely in moderation without guilt?
