Do you eat when you’re nervous without even realizing it? Do you see food in front of you and eat it without even thinking? And then regret it later! If so, here’s a tapping script that can help you pay more attention to when you engage in nervous eating.
If you’ve never tapped before, please download my Quick Start Guide first and find out how to tap. Just go to: http://www.MakingWeightLossEasy.com
Give this challenge a SUD level: How strong is your tendency to turn to food when you’re nervous? Then let’s start tapping at the side of hand point.
Even though eating helps me feel more relaxed when I’m nervous, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
Even though I eat first and think second, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
Even though I eat unconsciously when I’m nervous, I accept who I am and how I feel.
Top of Head: I automatically turn to food when I’m nervous.
Inside the Eye: I don’t even realize I’m nervous.
Outside the Eye: The food is there and then it’s gone.
Under the Eye: Later I regret it.
Under the Nose: I don’t feel so good later on.
Under the Mouth: I don’t even realize what I’m doing.
Collarbone: I haven’t connected eating with feeling nervous.
Underarm: This unconscious eating.
Top of Head: I’m attracted to foods that don’t agree with me when I feel nervous.
Inside the Eye: I focus on the food and not the emotions.
Outside the Eye: If I realized I was nervous I could focus on that.
Under the Eye: I’m used to covering my emotions with food.
Under the Nose: Food helps me relax.
Under the Mouth: It’s a great comfort after a stressful day.
Underarm: It’s a great comfort when I’m nervous about something.
