In this episode, Dr. David Hanscom continues his discussion with author and consultant Gillian Riley. She details the approach she uses to help clients control overeating. Some of the key elements include: getting clients to understand what drives their cravings and why they need to create new neural pathways to control them; developing self-agency and avoiding unsolicited advice; showing them how they can be in charge of their diet and their relationship to food; encouraging them to take small steps and think about how overeating will make them feel afterwards.
After teaching a program on quitting smoking for 12 years, Gillian Riley ran her first course on “How to take Control of Overeating” in 1997. She held weekend workshops in London for 20 years, delivered the course through webinars since 2017, and is now about to begin her 18th 6-week online course. Her work has as its focus the extraordinary and often ignored role of the mind in behavior change such as stopping smoking and eating less. For more information, visit: https://eatingless.com/.
