  • Food can be a great protector that keep you feeling safe with all the chaos and unpredictable life events.
  • Diets can be a great distraction to all the shitty things in the world.

Key Points:

  • Have PCOS and looking for more tools to work toward Food Peace? If you live near Greensboro NC you are in luck! Give us a call for details 336.273.2808 x 0.
  • Food is pleasurable as a means of survival.

  • Are you a competent eater?

  • You're not broken our culture is. We need to rewrite our truths about our body and our food.
  • Honor all the sizes you have experienced as the safe keeper for your soul.

  • You are acceptable just the way you are right now.

  • Have PCOS and looking for more tools to work toward Food Peace? If you live near Greensboro NC you are in luck! Give us a call for details 336.273.2808 x 0.
  • Every diet leads to a binge and weight gain.

  • PCOS affects ovulation, mood, hair, male pattern baldness, and central adiposity. This affects body image for many women.

Ep 030 Image

Have you been working on making peace with food and yearn to lose weight? Can you practice mindful intuitive eating while pursuing weight loss? Julie and her guest, fellow dietitian Aaron Flores, sort this out. Listen here now!

Subscribe and leave a review here in just seconds.

Key Points:

  • Eating disorder recovery has two steps: making peace with food then making peace with your body. Living in a fat body in our thin-obessessed world has many challenges especially if you are trying to live without diets and the desire to lose weight.
  • As making peace with food, it is common to not trust the process. Aaron uses a cool metaphor about being in the shallow end of the pool and knowing work needs to be done in the deep end. But going to that deep end is terrifying without floaties.
  • Remember to look how far you've come and be proud of the progress so far.
  • Binge eating disorder recovery is messy and not linear. It can be even messier if living in a fat body because our society undermines making peace with food. This chips away the trust we build through the process.
  • Do I need to learn to be a little bit hungry?? ABSOLUTELY not.
  • Honor the function of your rebellion. Deprivation will further fuel the rebellion.
  • We dietitians need to be comfortable with this rebellious time. Help clients hold the space.
  • Seek out people and resources that help you maintain positive body image. See the Food Peace Syllabus addition below.
  • Compassionate curiosity is the foundation for your food peace. 
  • You cannot work on peace with food while pursuing weight loss.

Ep 029 Image

Do you work in the entertainment industry and struggle with your body image? At times you may feel unacceptable yet what if it's them not you? Listen now for solutions.

Subscribe and leave a review here in just seconds.

Key Points:

  • PCOS and Food Peace Course set to begin in Greensboro. Give me a call (336.273.2808 x 0) if you'd like to attend this in person only event.
  • Are you looking for acceptance in your body's appearance? The way this letter writer defines an acceptable body does not fit her DNA.
  • This is reinforced with the media's discrimination and pressure for all to lose weight. This is wrong on so many levels.
  • Problem: didn't see other women who looked like you. Julie wonders if this letter writer's body size more like dad's side of the family rather than mom's side.
  • Problem: if more like dad's body shape/size, he said he "struggled" with his weight which is code for didn't accept it.
  • Do you feel unacceptable for taking up too much space??
  • Do you feel anger, frustration that feels endless? This mimics the body image struggles and symbolic of feminist issues.
  • You have permission to take up your space...whatever that is.
  • Redefine what an acceptable body is for you and everyone else.
  • Describe feelings as ugly?? Julie struggles with that description of normal experiences.

Show Notes:

  • Body Respect: What conventional health books get wrong, leave out, and just plain fail to understand about weight by Linda Bacon and Lucy Aphamor
