Time to examine your dusty food belief knick-knacks. What if you could write a letter to food? Pen to paper, you hash out the love/hate relationship and food’s undeserving power. Details go back years, to your first childhood diet trying to fit in. How you relate to food chronicles many of your life’s ups and downs. In this letter, you examine your dusty food beliefs and wonder which go in the trash, are for others, and which remain in your heart. What if you wrote this all down and food wrote you back? This is Love, Food. Food behavior expert and host, Julie Duffy Dillon is rolling up her sleeves to get to the bottom of what is really healthy. This award-winning dietitian seen on TLC’s My Big Fat Fabulous Life has a secret: food is not your enemy and your body is tired of the constant attacks.

Show topics include: *emotional eating *intuitive eating *anti-diet *binge eating *orthorexia *body image *eating disorders *dieting *parenting and food *healthy eating *stress eating *food addiction *mindful eating *non diet approaches Pull up a chair to your dusty kitchen table and set it for a meal. Ask food to sit alongside you and chat over coffee. Or a margarita. You have some reconnecting to do. In that connection is Love, Food. In that conversation is health and peace.

Key Points:

  • You are NOT too damaged to heal your relationship with food.
  • Remember and appreciate the functionality of food bringing a way to cope with chaos and trauma.
  • Appreciate the subtle hungers.
  • Humans are adaptive.
  • Find professionals who are body positive, understand eating disorders, and a trauma specialist.
  • Food may be like a security blanket. Before yanking it away, be curious about why the coping mechanism is there...that's where the healing begins.
  • Self compassion is the foundation for food peace.
  • Your cravings for disordered eating may be from an unmet need. What was just happening? What do I really need?

Ep 027 Image

Do you think your chronic conditions make you a slave to rigid diets or chained to the scale? Do you have a long history of coping with your emotions via food and now want to find other ways to survive?? There is a way for you to heal your relationship with food AND find health. Listen now for insight.

Subscribe and leave a review here in just seconds.

Key Points:

  • Hoarding, bingeing, and other related behaviors are the most common experiences from childhood dieting/restriction.
  • I am sorry on behalf of all health and medical professionals for the oppression.
  • You don't have to choose health OR healing. Working on healing your relationship with food will help you promote health long term.
  • Healing is not passive or giving up or weakness. Healing is an active process never passive.
  • Fat on the body didn't CAUSE the problems. Eating sugar didn't CAUSE the problems. Being shamed in your body and not teaching you how to tolerate feelings caused the problems. 
  • Healing from Binge Eating Disorder (BED) takes on average 7 to 14 years.
  • Restricting nutrients or calories may show favorable outcomes in short term yet worse in the long term especially if affected by BED.
  • Keep the data! You need proof that you're bingeing less as time goes on.
  • Diabetes is a chronic progressive disease. It is always changing and slowly getting worse even if you do everything you can.

Key Points:

  • Always have HOPE!
  • The way to heal our relationship with our body is via repairing our culture. 
  • Myth of solid wall of misery via Sharon Salzberg: These feelings eb and flow. They are more like storm clouds and you will get a break. The dark clouds are not the sky. The sky is still there.
  • During days with lots of negative body image keep in mind that those feelings won't last.
  • Buddhist techniques can help you make steps forward. Notice WHY bad body thoughts happen.
  • You don't have to be hijacked by feelings.
