“What I find is that the best way to really implement that healthy life and really get out of that emotional eating cycle and all of that is to actually let yourself have some of those things [treats that you love].” – Catherine Dickson
“We don’t want to live in that all-or-nothing mindset where it’s ‘I’m on the wagon’ or ‘I’m off the wagon’. Let’s just get rid of the wagon. We don’t need it.” – Catherine Dickson
“I want you to choose the thing that you really like and let yourself have it. You can have one, but choose it very intentionally. And when you’re sitting there and you’re deciding to have it, say to yourself: This is my choice. I am letting myself have this because I love it.” – Catherine Dickson
“Savour it. Slow down. Take your time, and really let yourself just be in that moment where you’re feeling more empowered, rather than you’re feeling like you’ve succumbed to the temptation. Because even just the mindset shift of going at it from that place of choice, from that place of ‘I want this thing. I’m going to let myself have it, and I’m going to savour every moment’, what happens is, is that when you really do that and you practice that, it’s incredible because then it’s not scarce anymore.” – Catherine Dickson
