LA JOLLA, Calif., Jan. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- You don't have to suffer with food obsessions or hate your body.
"You can learn how to nourish your body and your soul so that you can live a life that is rewarding and joyful," said Dr. Carolyn Ross, creator of The Anchor Program™ which is enrolling new clients this week.
The Anchor Program is a proven non-diet approach for treating emotional eating, binge eating, compulsive overeating, and food addiction. Clients can access this program through online video conferencing from the comfort of their own homes. Clients will work with professionals in the fields of nutrition, medicine, counseling, and health coaching to set and achieve their goals and break the hold food has over them.
"Emotional eating, compulsive overeating, binge eating and food addiction are not about the food. It's about how you use the food to deal with stress, emotions and the overwhelm of day-to-day life," she said.
"This pattern was probably created during a time of immense stress. This may have been your way of coping with your feelings, and for a while, it probably helped you feel better. But, over time, you also may have felt badly about your eating habits (maybe even guilty) and instead of being able to forgive yourself for this coping strategy, this turned into a vicious cycle of blame and shame and turning to food to make yourself feel better," she said.
The 10-week Anchor Program is not about dieting or deprivation. In fact, it's about having more fulfillment, enjoyment, health and positive thoughts and feelings about your body.
Dr. Ross has found the solution to help you stop using food to deal with your feelings, overcome emotional eating and conquer cravings.
"The answer is to find your anchor. Being anchored is about being true to yourself and accessing your inner strength. Your anchor is where you find stability in your lifestyle, your confidence in dealing with uncomfortable feelings like stress and anxiety, and where you put an end to body hatred," she said.
