I'm trying to get fit and lose the covid weight, and I've noticed a pattern - if I am absolutely gorging food and eating 24/7, I do fantastic. People want to talk to me, cold calls go great, deals get done.
Whenever I start "eating clean" and fixing my diet - I get hung up on, shooed off, almost like I'm a completely different guy - a guy who nobody wants to talk to.
I am by no means starving myself, I'm eating enough calories in healthy food on a not-extreme deficit.
I think I sound more energetic and enthusiastic - and somehow THAT is getting me hung up on.
Has anyone encountered the same thing, and if so - what is your fix that doesn't end with an early heart attack?
p.s I am pretty sure it's anxiety/stress eating, but aside from getting on prescription meds, I don't see a way out just yet.
