  • Is all mindless eating bad?
  • Some within the mindful eating industry forget to incorporate compassion and unintentionally encourage all or nothing thinking.
  • Eating for pleasure and emotional eating are normal parts of eating. They are universal human experiences. If emotional eating is the only way to cope then it can become something that is not health promoting.

  • What would it be like to experiment with relaxation without eating?
  • Could perfectionism be getting in the way of healing the letter writer's relationship with food?

Subscribe and leave a review here in just seconds.

Key Points:

  • Thank you for the feedback on how you are experiencing the show. So glad you are experiencing more peace with food and at home in your own skin!
  • Julie says thank you for sharing the kind words after she expressed her own body image struggles during times of infertility (Not episode 21 as I state in this podcast rather Episode 18)
  • Have you read Dietland yet? Amazing and sure to help you heal your relationship with food and your body. Would love to hear your thoughts about the book. #JenniferExists. Shall we have a Dietland book club??
  • It is important to honor the functional relationship we have with food. Tell Food thank you and compassionately time to move on and grieve it when it changes. Unless it is not time.
  • Trauma work can help you heal and be able find another way of relating with food.
  • Unhealthy coping is still coping. Stop beating yourself up for how you’ve gotten this far.
  • Should we blame weight for health problems? Weight probably has a relationship with health yet not causation. Just a relationship. Health behavior change associated with weight gain shouldn’t be considered the cause rather a symptom.
  • Not everyone in larger bodies has health problems. Not everyone who has lost weight is healthy.
  • Cause for health problems multifactorial probably from oppressions, traumas, behaviors, and stress.
  • Food addiction: when one takes away the deprivation, they no longer using the word addiction to describe her relationship with food.
  • Many people can relate to the trauma of sexual abuse and/or bullying.
  • Next time you find yourself in a binge or bad body thoughts, take a deep breath, in this exact moment, someone else is sitting with the same shame and anger. Use that common bond to help you energize your healing.

Ep 022 Image

Have you spent your whole life being told your body is not acceptable?

Key Points:

  • "The only time we need to feel guilty about eating food is when we have stolen it." Evelyn Tribole  RD
  • Just because we feel it doesn't mean it's true.
  • If told your body is not acceptable, it is easy to cultivate a complicated relationship with food. 
  • Letter writer loves food, and enjoys food yet may need to do grief work concerning relationship with food...what it used to be and what it never will be. Letting go of what she had hoped for with her relationship food will make room for what really is and can be.
  • Living in our world as a fat woman, it is typical to experience messages that that's not ok, should change it, and her own fault...those are not truths. Yet probably felt sense of shame to be different so fighting up-stream to enjoy food, her body, and make peace.
  • Eating for show puts physiology in a place where starving, rapid eating, then shame.
  • Grief work would be tough work yet hopeful eventually.
  • Intuitive eating with permission giving could be first steps to this grief work. Would be enhanced by working with a counselor and no longer dieting.
  • Put down your "weapons" and reconnect with On the Battlefield.
  • Women and men in larger bodies often have experienced trauma due to existing in a body that culture says is wrong. Doing trauma work may help heal your relationship with food.

Have you been told you can't get fertility treatments, or any other medical treatments, until you lose weight? What if you know the pursuit of weight loss just leads to more poor health especially for you? Acknowledge the rock and hard place yet there is a way through. Listen on for insight.

Subscribe and leave a review here in just seconds.

Key Points:

  • I recorded this podcast on my 41st birthday and I am incredibly grateful to have the honor to be in your ears right now.
  • Thank you dietitians for sharing this podcast with your clients. I appreciate your confidence in my work!
  • All NC ED RDs, email me so you can meet up at the next IFEDD dinner.
  • Intuitive Eating can help you heal your relationship with food and the intent does not include the pursuit of weight loss.
  • New to intuitive eating will make you have lots of excitement and fear. This will be terrifying! This doesn’t last forever as long as you continue to move forward. When you experience it, call it out as just a part of the transition.
  • The start of a diet is a seductive fantasy and has a calming effect. Intuitive eating may feel similar in the beginning yet a typical buzz kill. This doesn’t mean it isn’t working. Hold on! It has just begun.
  • Trying to control food will promote a tug of war and counteract the pursuit of food peace. Notice when it happens and remind yourself this happens because of the long term diet experiences.
  • IF you held your breath, you would take gasps for air. Same happens with foods and the types we restrict once given permission.
  • Mutually conclusive idea that losing weight = more health. If you’ve been heavy your whole life then probably what supposed to weigh.
  • Weight cycling hurts health and harms ovulation by increasing insulin levels.
  • If told have to lose weight in order to get fertility treatments, ask health care providers to show you the data. Further, show me the data on which type of diet that will help me long term. Put up or shut up!
  • Diets are the only medical intervention that places blame on the person rather than the intervention. Humph.
  • Be sure more people are on your side while exploring food peace. This may mean working with a therapist, dietitian, and get a second opinion from a fat-positive medical provider.
  • Your body has the wisdom and this outside noise will keep you from it.
