    Project Empowerment - Outsmarting Overeating

    in Self Help

    Project Empowerment is excited to have on author, Karen R. Keonig to discuss her new book, Outsmarting Overeating, Boost Your Life Skills, End Your Food Problems.

    Anyone who has struggled to make peace with the refrigerator and the scale can identify with the vicious cycle of painfully forging a bit of progress, only to see it vanish after getting fed up with the struggle to eat healthfully. They become so tired of thinking about all of the “should” and “shouldn’ts” surrounding food that they throw up their hands in despair, and try to accept their eating as it is, until that too becomes frustrating, and the cycle of unsuccessfully trying to improve their eating habits begins all over again.

    Outsmarting Overeating: Boost Your Life Skills, End Your Food Problems  offers a powerful new approach for stopping this cycle once and for all. The solution it provides has very little to do with food and everything to do with developing the essential skills that the majority of overeaters lack for coping with life’s ups and downs.

    Outsmarting Overeating explores eight essential life skills, such as physical self-care, handling emotions, problem solving, and living consciously. It illustrates how lacking each skill can propel individuals toward unnecessary eating, and how, in turn, unwanted eating prevents skill development.

    Another diet is NOT the answer
    There’s a good chance that a diet is what spiraled you into binge eating in the first place. I know that was the case for me. In the past I have experimented with several diets: low fat, low carb, and numerous others. And I kept looking for the diet that would end all of the confusion and allow me to escape the binge eating behaviors I had developed.
    But thankfully I finally realized that another diet is not the answer.
    In my experience, strict diets, especially those that revolve around limiting or completely eliminating foods, food groups, or macronutrients only add fuel to the binge eating fire.
    The solution is not found in a diet, so don’t search for one.

    OVEREATING: The Church'folks Disease

    in Religion

    Frugivore Magazine wrote an article, "Is the Black Church causing obesity by overeating?", raising the concern of obesity amongst African Americans. In 2013, a study conducted by Northwestern University observed 2,433 particpants over an 18-year time period. Out of the particpants, 41% were African Americans who attending one religious event weekly was at risk to become obese.

    Dr. Thomas A. Laveist, Director of the Hopkins Center for Health Disparities Solutions, states that,

    "Black church culture is out of alignment with some biblical teachings, particularly when it comes to how we eat. Church culture has got us drinking Kool-Aid, eating white bread, fried chicken, large servings of macaroni and cheese and collard greens drenched with salty hog maws (foods that are high in sugar, salt, calories, and carbohydrates that trigger health problems). We’re eating this in the church basement at dinner and at church conventions! Meanwhile, the Bible teaches against gluttony."

    Is it time for the Black Church Culture to regain it's health? Join TruthTalk with special guest Zhivi Williams, health & wellness coach and advocate of Leading by Example. Topic of discussion will be on regainig focus on health through clean eating, exercise, and weight maintenance.

    in Christianity

    When the abuse of health is carried so far that sickness results, the sufferer can often do for himself what no one else can do for him. The first thing to be done is to ascertain the true character of the sickness and then go to work intelligently to remove the cause. If the harmonious working of the system has become unbalanced by overwork, overeating, or other irregularities, do not endeavor to adjust the difficulties by adding a burden of poisonous medicines.

    Intemperate eating is often the cause of sickness, and what nature most needs is to be relieved of the undue burden that has been placed upon her. In many cases of sickness, the very best remedy is for the patient to fast for a meal or two, that the overworked organs of digestion may have an opportunity to rest. A fruit diet for a few days has often brought great relief to brain workers. Many times a short period of entire abstinence from food, followed by simple, moderate eating, has led to recovery through nature's own recuperative effort. An abstemious diet for a month or two would convince many sufferers that the path of self-denial is the path to health.
