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.

Do you think if you lost weight you'd finally be free? Are you stuck in a loop of binge--> notice weight gain--> diet--> binge--> repeat? Feel like you would be free from its hellish grip if you could just lose the weight?? Like the binges would cease to exist once the weight was lost?? Do you wonder why you have been trapped in this for decades?? Julie sees what's blocking your path. Listen now for insight.

Key Points:

  • Content warning: specific weight discussion
  • Healthy vs unhealthy versions of food = food dichotomy = black and white thinking = perfectionism that doesn't even exist. This is a disordered eating pattern and will keep you stuck in this loop.
  • Practice giving yourself permission to eat these "unhealthy foods" although not easy. Can typically take a year for this to stick.
  • Freedom will only happen by not place your worth and value in your weight and weight loss pursuit.
  • Pursuing weight loss keeps us in the disordered eating loop. Keeps foods in that dichotomy.
  • The pursuit of weight loss would enhance the binge/diet loop and enhance the black and white thinking.
  • How do you move away from using weight as a measure of health and worth?? Find a counselor and dietitian who align with these values.
  • When seduced by the fantasy of losing weight be aware that is happening and call it out as the mindfuck that it is. Expect sadness, grief, and anger.
  • You don't need to fight yourself to find freedom. Rather you need to fight the culture. You need to fight body hate in order to find your own food peace.

Key Points:

  • "That big hunk of metal gets way more power than it deserves." Reba Sloan
  • IE is meant to help one heal their relationship with food not as a weight loss tool.
  • Can you have a peaceful relationship with food with weight loss as a goal?
  • Taking the scale out of your home can be an important step in your journey to making peace with food. Can make steps gradually to checking less or burn it!
  • Think small steps to help get back on track with intuitive eating. Try to avoid "all or nothing" and appreciate you don't have to be all in.
  • Intuitive eating can easily be interpreted in a black and white way just like diets.

  • Where do you stand in your body image?
  • Everyone's needs are different.
  • Satter Eating Competence Model

Key Points:

  • Get your Food Peace Syllabus signing up for my FREE Food peace Newsletter. Link below.
  • Food insecurity causes many people to binge eat, hoard food, and feel obsessed with food. Not a cop out. Legitimate cause of urges to binge and feeling unable to stop eating.
  • Childhood food patterns influence adult behaviors.
  • Takes courage to peal back the darkness.
  • First steps to work toward healing:
    • Food is symbolic. Wonder what food represents missed during childhood? Be that for herself. Validate have wants and needs.
    • Appreciate how much deprivation contributes to bingeing, feeling unable to stop eating. It's a physiologically programed response.
  • Want to heal your relationship with food? Stop pursuing weight loss or will continue to feel like can't stop eating.
  • It wasn't your fault you keep eating. Your body was/is trying to save you. Your not broken, needing to be fixed. Kick that shame to the curb!!
  • Make room for the feeling without feeling shame for it being there.
  • Compassionate curiosity is the foundation for food peace.
