(Savannah therapists) Binge Eating Disorder: Why Can’t I Stop Eating?

Monday, September 21st, 2020

Binge Eating disorder Low Country Therapists Savannah Counseling Counselors

Low Country Counseling in Savannah on Binge Eating Disorder

For those who struggle with binge eating, food can lead to anxiety and shame.

This eating pattern has many names: emotional eating, over-eating, compulsive eating, food addiction, etc. They all mean the same thing: that eating has become an adaptation to dealing with negative feelings and experiences. And then a terrible cycle ensues: eating, shame, and then fasting or dieting to “do better.” This cycle can feel lonely and endless. And hence the question, “Why Can’t I Stop Eating?”

The answer may be Binge Eating Disorder (BED). BED is the most common eating disorder, however it was only recently recognized officially.

Learn more about causes of BED, tips to reduce binge eating and 5 signs of binge eating disorder here.

(Savannah therapists) Low Country Counseling: 7 Ways to Eat Mindfully

Monday, July 27th, 2020

Savannah therapists counselors counseling Low Country Therapy

Low Country Counseling therapists on what is mindful eating

(Below is a guest post by Low Country Counseling in Savannah)

We have lost the connection of knowing when our bodies are hungry and when they have had enough to eat.

We have lost the insight of knowing what our bodies are needing because we can no longer “hear” what our bodies crave. We have moved to a state of Mind-Less Eating: a state of rushed, hurried eating of whatever food is convenient, regardless of whether or not we are even hungry. Mindless eating is not healthy for our bodies. It can lead to over-eating which may lead to physical discomfort and feelings of regret.

Mindful Eating allows us to slow down and re-connect with our bodies by using our senses each time we eat a snack or meal.

Learn more about what mindful eating is and seven ways to eat mindfully here.

SouthCoast Health: Why You Should Always Reach for Water & The Dangers of Sugary Drinks

Wednesday, May 27th, 2020
southcoast health physicians savannah

SouthCoast Health’s Dr. Leland R. Dampier, III

Georgia is one of the top five states with the highest sugar consumption, with about one in three Georgian adults drinking soda a day.

“About half of the United States adult population drinks a soda a day,” SouthCoast Health Family Physician Leland Dampier, MD said.

“…But I’m sure if that more adults knew what they were doing to their bodies, they would work hard to never drink soda again.”

Learn about why you should not drink soda & the benefits of water here.

SouthCoast Health: Tips to “Put Your Best Fork Forward” for National Nutrition Month

Tuesday, March 10th, 2020

SouthCoast Health March is National Nutrition Month. So the SouthCoast Health nutritionist team is offering advice to those trying to live a healthier lifestyle, bite by bite.

When asked about what two to three changes people should make in order to be healthier, SouthCoast Health’s nutritionist team immediately thought of how to approach eating your fruits and vegetables. Being more mindful of not only how many fruits and vegetables you eat in a day, but the way they’re prepared is important. Not only are most Americans not reaching their recommended daily intake, they’re also consuming vegetables that are prepared in unhealthy ways, such as being covered in sauces, excessive seasoning, or fried, which adds unwanted calories and saturated fat.

SouthCoast Health General Physician: Tips for a healthier life

Friday, January 31st, 2020

Your typical to-do list: Get to work, spend time with your family, be as productive as possible, cook a good dinner, clean up the house, de-stress, and, if you’re lucky, squeeze in time to work out.

“For so many people, and Americans especially, the last piece in that long list of daily to-dos often gets overlooked,” SouthCoast Health General Physician Dr. Leslie Sizemore stated. “But keeping everything in our life running the way we want involves being kind to our bodies and keeping ourselves as healthy as possible. As easy as it is to skip working out and eating healthy, it can have negative effects on us in the long run.”

Find tips here on to how to strike a balance between work and life that includes developing healthy habits.

Pushing aside your wellness goals and exercise routine during the holiday season is not a good idea.

“This time of year is infamous for skipping altogether daily exercise and calorie counting,” SouthCoast Health Primary Care Physician Dr. Robert Remler said. “It’s just as tempting to put weight loss and muscle building goals to the side until New Year’s rolls around, but waiting just makes everything a much harder and longer process.”

Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah guest post on making habits stick

Saturday, February 23rd, 2019

Fit Kids Fest 2019 Savannah Junior League CrossFitHP

Below is a guest post from Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah 

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you always did healthy things all the time without even thinking about it?

That’s the beauty of a habit. It just happens without a whole lot of resistance.

We’ll got habits – the routine things we do from the moment we wake up to the moment we go to sleep (even the way we sleep is a routine).

Our kids have habits too. Some are great, and some we wish as parents we could break before it gets harder later in life.

Here are few tips for making some of those things we KNOW we should be doing more of a habit. (These are good for grownups and well as kids.)

One thing at time. Don’t try to pile on multiple new habits at once. That’s a recipe for failure.

Pair the habit with something you already do routinely. For instance, if you’ve decided that you should drink more water, connect it with something you already do. Perhaps when you turn the water on to take a shower in the morning, it triggers you to go snag a quick drink as you wait for the shower to warm up.

Chunk it down. Reduce resistance to getting started by setting a goal in the smallest increment possible. If getting more activity during the day is a goal, you’re not likely to stop your other habits to work in 30 minutes. But if you can work in 1 minute a couple of times a day you’ll find you are getting in much more than that one minute. Getting started is the hardest part.

Reward yourself (with something healthy of course, but enjoyable). My kids don’t love to read, but they like their time with me. So we read for a bit and then they get some bonus attention that is just theirs.

Take notice. You want your kids to pick up after themselves? Verbally applaud them for doing the task as soon as notice it getting even a tiny bit better.

Progress is better than perfection. Our habits are always a work in progress. Keep looking for news ways to make doing the good stuff easier.

Want more ideas? Check out the the Junior League of Savannah’s FREE Fit Kids Fest on Sat. March 2 2019, 1-4PM @ Savannah State University. There will all sorts of activities and local vendors that love to make Savannah families healthier. Stop by the Hyperformance Athletics Obstacle Course and say hello.
