“My life is really becoming the life I want. With no effort at all, I eat healthier food, and I actually enjoy exercising.”
˜ Terry, Santa Cruz, CA ˜
Overweight affects 67 percent of Americans, and overeating is the most common excess in the nation. Treatment includes diets, exercise or surgery.
Overweight and the drive to overeat are symptoms of wiring. Wires encoded from stressful experiences create chemical drives to overeat. The brain changes its emotional set point to stress, and overeating and weight gain increase. The EBT Approach is to learn the tools to process stress effectively, rewire the circuits that trigger the drive to overeat, and improve the brain’s emotional set point.
Learn the 5 Tools of EBT, and notice how much more power you have to control your stress and your eating. Rewire the circuits that trigger the drive to overeat. Continue with EBT to improve the brain’s emotional set point, and see lasting and profound changes in every aspect of life.
With 67 percent of Americans overweight, and sugary, fatty food the nation’s #1 addiction, food addiction is the most common reason that participants choose EBT.
The EBT Approach
Food addiction is caused by:
1. A Survival Circuit – a circuit that is encoded during stress that creates a false association between food and survival. That circuit is unconscious and until it is rewired it is not reasonable to expect that habit change will be lasting. In fact, methods that recommend changes in food behaviors prior to rewiring that circuit often result in poor results or a substitute addiction, such as alcohol, cigarettes, spending or hoarding. In EBT, you learn a three-stage process to rewire that circuit so that the drive to overeat decreases. Food is just food, not a fix!
2. An Emotional Set Point In Stress – with repeated episodes of stress the brain’s emotional set point becomes locked in chronic stress. In that state, changes in cortisol and imbalances in neurotransmitters increase the drive to overeat and the tendency to store central fat, which increases risk of diabetes, hypertension and hyperlipidemia. EBT advanced courses are aimed at resetting the brain to a new set point in balance and reward. The goal of the training is to have freedom from the whole range of common excesses and an abundance of the higher order rewards of life.
