Show Notes

As we’ve discussed, thoughts drive feelings, actions and results.  The fear of missing out, or FOMO, is a feeling derived from the thought that food is scarce. This scarcity mindset creates feelings of fear that causes us to make choices that don’t serve our bodies. For example, when faced with the summer barbecues or restaurant menus that temps us with goodies we didn’t plan to eat, we tell ourselves “this is the only time that food is available to us.” This scarcity mentality causes us to worry that we are missing out on a special food. Feelings of fear typically drive actions that are not consistent with long term goals. During this podcast, I discuss the scarcity mentality and offer alternative approaches to dealing with expected and unexpected situations.
