The Link between EFT and Diet and Nutrition

You’ve read about meditation, diet and nutrition, and perhaps you’d like to have a way to enhance that. Using meditation for nutrition is certainly quite effective. Another excellent method to utilize, however, is Emotional Freedom Technique, or EFT. EFT is easy, free, portable, and, best of all, it helps you to accomplish what you want, often more quickly than other therapies. To make the most of EFT for diet and nutrition, your best bet is to work with a qualified EFT therapist. Contact me at, so you can be on your way to improved health and fitness more rapidly. My clients repeatedly tell me EFT is more
effective when they work with me than when they do it on their own.

How does EFT help my physical health?

EFT functions the same way, and as effectively, as acupuncture, but it doesn’t require needles, a Traditional Chinese Medicine doctor, or expensive appointments, so, most people prefer it. Instead, EFT employs your fingertips. There are meridians running throughout your body from the tips of your toes and fingers to the tip of your head. They’re similar to your veins and lymphatic system, but these life energy meridians transport your Ki, Chi, Prana, and Elan Vital. However you call it, it should be flowing freely.

Whenever there’s a blockage along the meridians, you’ll have a problem somewhere in your life: pain, injury, illness, a difficult relationship, financial woes, negative emotions, or any number of other issues. EFT releases the blockage, which allows your life energy to flow properly again, and it allows for the problem to be resolved. EFT is all-natural healing. When we heal ourselves naturally, our bodies and immune systems become stronger and better able to fight off any subsequent threats. In addition, EFT is never contraindicated, because it’s all-natural. That’s the connection between EFT and physical health.

“Although each of us is unique, what we all have in common is the life energy meridian system.”

How does EFT help with my nutrition?

There are many EFT physical health benefits. It won’t interfere with any medication, therapy, or surgery you may already be receiving. It will only accelerate and enhance the positive effects of other methods you use. It also helps to put you in a better frame of mind, because you keep tapping on the issue until you feel better. When you feel better, your body naturally makes better use of any nutrition you consume. It’s free once you learn it. It doesn’t require any special equipment, location, or clothing. It can be done at any time you’re available. Each of those is a very positive effect of EFT on physical and mental health. The better you feel, the healthier you are.

How long does it take to see a result with EFT and nutrition?

Positive results with EFT can be experienced in the very first session. The goal of tapping is to feel better, and, when you use it, you will. Depending on what it is you’re trying to improve, however, and how long you’ve had the problem, getting the ultimate result may take several sessions. As EFT improves physical health, it may subsequently uncover other issues that are aspects of the original problem.

Let’s say, for example, that you’ve been instructed to follow a particular diet you don’t like, so you keep cheating on the diet. You use EFT to help yourself release the desire to cheat on the diet, and that’s successful, but maybe it’s uncovered memories of being forced to eat vegetables as a child, and that memory leaves you with the need to feel in control. In that instance, EFT helped you reach your initial goal quickly, but then revealed another issue that will require more EFT.

How can EFT help me with my nutrition?

It depends on what you want to accomplish. There are no limits with EFT. You can use it to stick to a particular way of eating. It can help you to eat more mindfully. You may want to change your body’s reaction to particular foods and/or drinks, and EFT is great for that. If you want to gain or lose weight, EFT is certainly helpful. Perhaps you want to stop eating late into the night, and EFT is excellent to help you with that. You can use it to improve anything having to do with diet, nutrition, and health, regardless of how long you’ve had any issue or how impossible it may seem to you that it can be resolved.

How do I know EFT is for me?

EFT is for everyone. Although each of us is unique, what we all have in common is the life energy meridian system. Any time there’s any problem anywhere in your life, regardless of what it may be, or what may seem to have caused it, it’s because there is a blockage in the free flow of your life energy. In order to repair the problem, you must release the blockage. What’s great about EFT is, once you release the blockage, you’ll begin to have a positive experience. The problem may become less important. Maybe the solution will occur to you. Often, problems seem to disappear on their own with the use of EFT. What you accomplish using EFT can seem to be miraculous.

What is an example of an EFT meditation I can start?

Let’s say you’ve been instructed to eat more vegetables, but you don’t like vegetables. Write down anything you can think of that has to do with that, for example, what you’ve been told, how you feel about it, your experience with it in the past, and what you’re expecting to happen. Next, write a number from one to ten that represents how distressed you are that you have to eat vegetables and the situation in general. If, when you have time to tap, you don’t feel very distressed about it, try to remember how you felt when you were the most distressed about it, and, when you feel that, use that number. The higher your level of distress when you begin, the more relief you’ll experience.


Next, write your Setup Statement using what you’ve written. The Set-Up Statement is a personal-to-you, current version of, “Even though I [have this problem – be specific], I deeply and completely, love, accept, and forgive myself. Perhaps your statement would be: “Even though I don’t like vegetables, but now I’m being made to eat them, I deeply and completely love, accept and forgive myself.” You can use the same Set-Up Statement three times, or write three versions of the issue, using different aspects of it.


For our purposes, we’ll do the latter. Two others you might use are: “Even though I’ve always hated eating vegetables, I deeply and completely love, accept, and forgive myself,” and “Even though I can’t stand even the thought of eating vegetables, I deeply and completely love, accept and forgive myself.” You’ll say the three statements (or the same one three times) while tapping the Side of Hand point on the fleshy, outside part of your hand that would make contact if you did a Karate chop.


Then, while tapping the other points, you say Reminder Statements: the Eyebrow (above the beginning of your eyebrow); Side of Eye (the bone outside your eye); Under Eye (the bone under your eye); Under Nose (the divot just below your nose); Chin (just under the bottom lip); Collar Bone (about an inch below and an inch out from your clavicle knob); Under Arm (about a hand’s width below your armpit or on your bra strap); and Top of Head (the crown of your head).


As you tap each of the Reminder points, say things like, “I do not like vegetables,” “I’ve never liked vegetables,” “I’m so angry that I have to eat more vegetables I don’t like,” “It’s so unfair I have to eat more vegetables,” and so on, according to what you’ve written. Adjust the verbiage so it feels true to you. Keep tapping until your level of distress is reduced. When it is, stop tapping, take a long, slow, deep breath, and reassess the number representing your level of distress. It will be lower. If you feel like the number is the same, tap more rounds. The longer you tap and the more often, the sooner you’ll see results.


One round of EFT tapping consists of the three Set-Up Statements on the Side of Hand point, plus five or six rounds on the Reminder points using Reminder Statements. The goal is reduce your negative feelings about the problem. If you need to tap more Reminder rounds to feel better, please do. Tap firmly enough to feel the tap, but not hard enough to hurt yourself. Five or six taps on each point is good, but don’t get caught up in counting, just tap somewhat rapidly and firmly while speaking the Statements, and you’ll be fine.

EFT Tips

1. Contact me for a coaching session through this site.

2. You can tap with your left or right hand, on either side or on both.

3. Make sure you’re hydrated.

4. If you’re tapping on your own and not achieving the result you want, try changing your location.

5. EFT is most effective when you have the guidance of a practitioner. My clients repeatedly mention that EFT is much more effective when they work with me than when they do it on their own. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at
