Solve The Overeating Puzzle - UNLOX'U

Solve The Overeating Puzzle - UNLOX'U

By Eugenia Nikiforow
Eugenia Nikiforow, the founder of Unlox’U – Eating Psychology Clinic shares practical tools and strategies to be in control of food cravings, overeating and binge eating urges.

Eugenia dives deep into nutrition, psychology of eating and neuroscience to identify the underlying reasons for our behaviours around food. This way we can find our own key to unlock our transformation with eating, weight and body image. We believe psychology is the missing key to a life of freedom, joy and peace with food, our weight and exercise.

My Eating Disorder Recovery Story - Eugenia Nikiforow
In this episode, for the first time, I am sharing about my own eating disorder and answering your questions. I also talk about my life after I recovered from orthorexia, binge eating disorder and nighttime eating syndrome.   I have never spoken openly about my experience with an eating disorder in detail, but I know it was time to answer your questions. I hope that my binge eating disorder story can help someone out there who also binges to feel less ashamed and in the dark. It is important to address an eating disorder as soon as possible to come back to healthy eating habits. The road to recovery is not always smooth and there can be setbacks. It has taken me years to get to feeling the easiest around food. But no matter how long it takes, recovery is always worth it.  I am answering your questions such as:  Do I still have moments when I struggle?  How do I eat now?  Was I ever overweight?  What do I think about diet plans and intuitive eating.  If you would like me to answer more of your questions, please send me an e-mail at eugenia@unloxu.nz or book your free call on https://unloxu.nz/contact/ Connect with me through INSTAGRAM https://www.instagram.com/unloxu.nz/ TIKTOK https://www.tiktok.com/@unloxu FACEBOOK https://www.facebook.com/unloxu.nz/ You can learn more about food cravings, overeating, and the psychology of eating on my BLOG https://unloxu.nz/bingeeatingblog/

Psychology behind eating habits and deeper meaning behind food choices.
Overeating, Food Cravings and Binge Eating have a deeper meaning. There is a message for us to understand and learn. In this episode, I am giving some specific eating habits that people do and what it might mean. I also explain the reasons why we eat at certain times of the week or day and what we actually need and want apart from nourishment and nutrients. 1: You had dinner, feel full and yet you feel like eating something else as soon as you sit down to watch TV. 2. You had a long week and at the end of the week on Friday, you order a pizza and get a bottle of wine. 3. You order a coffee and maybe something sweet at the same time of the day and every day. If you can recognise yourself in these examples, you will understand why you actually do it and why you think you do it. Don't know why you can't stop eating?
