A Food Plan for Compulsive Overeaters
A lot of people think there is one true food plan that can magically transform your health. If it were that easy, the last one would have worked! The real problem is that we, as compulsive overaters, lack the power to follow a plan and stick to it. Once we’ve lost control over food, we cannot treat a food plan like a diet and take days off or cheat anymore. The other problem is that when we go off the plan, we return to the eating behaviors that cause the lost weight to return and then some.
A food plan is a healthy way of eating for life. Without help, it simply doesn’t work long term.
COR Retreat offers that help. Those that have found success have detoxed at COR Retreat in a safe environment where people just like you get it. After COR Retreat, our guests adopt a spiritual way of life through the 12 steps. They have a mentor, attend meetings for support, and stay free from the obsession over food. They are no longer fighting the battle with food.
What is the right food plan?
COR recommends that you see a dietician or nutritionist to develop a food plan made specifically for you. There is no template food plan that works for everyone. People have different nutritional requirements based on their age, height, weight, health condition, exercise levels, and more factors.
We offer a list of nutritionists that understand that food is addictive. They understand the concept of abstinence, and can help you with creating a food plan that will work for your unique situation.
