Do You Binge When You’re Angry?

Cravings-Crushing Monday: The More You Forgive, the Less You'll Crave Junk Foods

What do you do when you’re angry, bitter or resentful?

When you’re consumed by anger, do you or have you turned to chips, candies or other junk foods full of sugar or processed carbs?

In short, did you get cravings when you’re furious?

Then did you binge?

And did that lead to weight gain?

You’re in good company.

Millions overeat junk foods and become obese, because they shove toxic foods into their mouths while consumed by toxic emotions such as anger.  (Of course, other emotions may play into this, too.)

Anger is one of the most dangerous emotions.

Research shows that if you suppress it or express your anger, you may develop a variety of diseases, including coronary heart disease, bulimia and type 2 diabetes, as well as cancer, which also has been linked to anger.

I invite you to ask yourself: Are you one of those, who pigs out when you’re angry?

Indeed, the more you forgive, the less you’ll crave.

Rather than just tell you to quit being angry, I invite you to learn about the power of forgiveness.

Once you forgive, you’ll get less cravings and find less of a need to binge.

To get you on the road to forgiveness, I recommend that you check out two books: One is The Forgiveness Solution by Dr. Philip Friedman.and Forgive for Good by Dr. Fred Luskin.

While you’re waiting for one or both books to arrive, I invite you to listen to the fascinating interviews that I did with Drs. Friedman and Luskin, who both offer fascinating information about the power of forgiveness.

First,  I invite you to listen do Dr. Luskin’s take on forgiveness.

Remembering the Amazing Louise Hay

The Five of Many Times Louise Hay Lifted Me Up Or Changed My Life (Your Motivating Monday)

Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about the the amazing Louise L. Hay, who passed away August 30 at the age of 90.

It’s tough to describe the profound influence on me by this remarkable, trailblazing, positive-thinking woman, who I’ve had the pleasure of meeting four or five times over the past few years.

In fact, one of my fondest memories about Louise Hay is that I had the distinct honor to talk with her at her fabulous, private 85th birthday party in San Diego in 2012.

The stunning party was for Hay House authors, and I was sooooooooo thrilled, because my second book, Beyond Sugar Shock, was but two months away from reality by none other than Hay House, the publishing house I so admired.

(Unfortunately, my joy at becoming a Hay House author and talking with Louise was greatly clouded by the fact that my mother had recently been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. (In fact, I’d just flown in to San Diego for Louise’s party after spending a heartbreaking week with with my dying mother. Later, I moved 3,000 miles, from the East Coast, to be with my Mom at the end of her life. But that’s another story.)

You, too, I imagine — if you’re into growing, reaching your potential and becoming the most wonderful person you can be — have been positively guided by Louise Hay.

All of us, thankfully, can still be guided by this legend  although Louise Hay is no longer on this earth.

By the way, if you don’t know much about Louise Hay, I urge you to find out now and I’m sure you’ll be inspired when you do that. For instance, do you know the following  three tidbits?

  1. Did  you know that Louise founded Hay House in her living room?
  2. Did you know that You Can Heal Your Life has sold 50 million copies?
  3. Did you know that Louise founded Hay in 1984 as a way to self-publish her first two books, Heal Your Body and You Can Heal Your Life ?
  4.  Did you know that when Louise got cancer that instead of doing and drugs, she “instead developed an intensive program of affirmations, visualization, nutritional cleansing, and psychotherapy” and that within six months, “she was completely healed of cancer?
  5. Did you know that Louise Hay spent years helping men with AIDs and in 1985, she began her famous support group, “The Hayride,” which, by 1998, grew to a weekly gathering of 800 people and had to moved to an auditorium in West Hollywood?
  6. Did you know that Hay House authors include many notables in the self-help movement, including Dr. Wayne Dyer, Joan BorysenkoDr. Christiane Northrup, and Doreen Virtue?

Just think: This amazing woman, who had been abused while younger, ultimately started a worldwide company, which is committed to delivering products and services that empower and educate the individual, while helping to heal our planet.”

Now, let me share four major times that Louise Hay has helped me in enormous ways.
