Come again? Prizes for orgasms?
This week was full of surprise...
When we lose weight we gain things –- confidence, energy, health, and sexiness. And one of my most unorthodox weight loss tips didn't get shown in therapy. I have told many folks the rule of FLAB -- to stop, pause and ask themselves why they are eating unhealthy foods, snacking, or overeating. Are they eating because they are frustrated? Lonely? Angry? Bored? Once they determine they are eating for the wrong reasons, then it is time to put the food down and find a substitute activity for that feeling. One of my favorite suggested substitutes is some quick masturbation. Yup. Put down the cupcake, rub one off and the urge for sugar will pass. Orgasm instead of Oreos. Other acceptable substitutes are exercise, internet, calling a friend, reading a book, taking a walk, cleaning your house. But orgasm is a quick and dirty way to kill the food craving and you get a glow to boot. If we are going for the "inner sexy," then I think it is the best way to go.
You said a lot here, trying to digest what you said. I feel like I'm reading a text book when I read your blog... Anyway, stimulus control needs cooperation from my friends and family somehow. They are bringing all the food I'm trying to avoid, and I'm the only one who have no control over those food and overeat, what should I do? I feel guilty for asking not to bring them in the house, they feel guilty for eating in front of me or hiding it from me.
