Overcoming the Fear of Scarcity

 

Why do we fear scarcity when we don’t need to?

  1. Growing up told to finish our meal
  2. Told we always need a snack on hand (don’t want to be caught without a snack)
  3. Our parents, the food industry
  4. True scarcity (poverty / neglect)

The fear of scarcity with Fasting

  1. Planning a fast can induce binge prior
  2. Breaking a fast might result in binging on carb-laden poor nutritional choices.

How to get over this mentality

  1. You will not starve
  2. You are burning your fat – YAY!!
  3. You don’t HAVE TO FAST – you can always eat
  4. Don’t plan a fast just see how things go
  5. Bring a healthy snack but don’t eat it
