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. She will partner with you on your Food Peace™ journey. 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.

Does exercise control your life? Are you trying to recover your relationship with food, your body, and exercise? Wonder what a healthy relationship with exercise looks like for you?? Join Julie as she chats with sports dietitian Nancy Clark on this important topic. Listen now for places to start.

Subscribe and leave a review here in just seconds.

Key Points:

  • Julie needs your letters! Send your letter detailing your complicated relationship with Food to LoveFoodPodcast@Gmail.com
  • Many people struggle with balancing exercise and food in a healthy way. All too often it is tied together with weight. This is NOT healthy.
  • Athlete vs compulsive exercise
  • E in Exercise should be for Enjoyment NOT Excruciating
  • Movement for pleasure is health promoting
  • First steps to move toward a healthier direction:
    • Role exercise plays in life: Athlete vs Distraction from life?
    • What would you be doing if not exercising so much or so exhausted from exercising so much?
    • Exercise can be a stress reliever yet enough is enough.
    • Exercise is serving a distracting purpose
    • Consider Yoga: doing for your body not to your body
    • Consider weight lifting as long as keep within limits
  • Convert from compulsive exerciser to athlete. An athlete fuels her body and takes rest day. "Your training today is to do nothing." <--I LOVE this!
  • 30 minutes five days a week or 150 minutes of exercise recommended to be fit. Can be easy to get too much.
  • "Anyone who exercises for more than an hour a day does it for reasons other than health and fitness." Ken Cooper
  • What are you running away from??
  • Listen to your body: intuitive eating AND intuitive exercise. Be sure to include pleasure and socialization with exercise. This will nourish the body on many many levels. Healthy exercise includes pleasure.
  • The many reasons to exercise: health, fitness, bone health, heart health, diabetes prevention, etc. Notice to burn off calories is not on this list!!!
    I got a chance to hang out with Nancy Clark RD at this year's FNCE. She is a dietitian celebrity and honored she agreed to be on Love Food!

Are you working toward eating disorder recovery yet wonder if you have the strength to see it through?? Does your battle toward 100% recovery feel like an impossible dream? Listen now for insight.

Subscribe and leave a review here in just seconds.

Key Points:

  • Julie needs your letters! Send your letter detailing your complicated relationship with Food to LoveFoodPodcast@Gmail.com
  • Get out paper and pencil for an exercise!
  • Recovery is messy, unclear, bumpy, weathered not linear or a destination.
  • Our world has not recovered yet.
  • First, learn to live with your biology then how to rewire it.
  • Eating disorder recovery is not a sprint rather a marathon.
  • ED recovery takes usually ~7 to 14 years.
  • Carolyn Costin quote:"Recovery can't be something you dip your toe in to. For it to be fully felt and completely comprehended, you have to immerse yourself."
  • We can't pick and choose parts of recovery to get there. Part of recovery is facing the fear of fat and staying with it if indeed your body needs to be.
  • Size diversity is healthy yet we live in a fat-phobic world.
  • Seek out group support to aid in recovery.
  • Health of every size is an approach to attuned eating, movement and body image that does not use the scale as a measure of progress. Size diversity is celebrated and a social justice issue.

ep-39-image

Are you at diet rock bottom and longing for food peace yet feel just as stuck in things like mindful eating and intuitive eating? Do you experience more shoulds and rigid rules within tools meant to release your complicated relationship with food? Can you escape rule prison? Yup. You can. Listen now for insight.

Key Points:

  • Editor’s note: This episode 39 needed to be released a week behind episode 40 because it wasn’t quite ready. I’m trying to be ok with the break in numbering and hope you can be too.
  • Mindful eating can be twisted to be harmful rather than health promoting and compassionate.
  • Mindfulness's foundation: a compassionate nonjudgemental presence. Being in the moment and noticing brain messages, feelings, etc.
  • Shoulding leads to dieting.
  • Watch out for the hybrid: mindful dieting.
  • Mindfulness connected to dieting, pursuit of weight loss, or "right" way then twisting mindfulness to make it no longer mindful.
  • How to change?
    • Compassionate nonjudgemental curiosity. Center on this concept. Be aware of judgements and notice them too without judging. Normal and natural especially living in a fat body.
    • Practice pausing. Decide what you'd really like it to be as a grown up and in charge of yourself.
    • Healthy eating includes pleasure. Honor this pleasure. Learn to be ok with it.
  • "When you take the joy out of eating, nutrition suffers." Ellyn Satter RD LCSW
  • Jinx experiences = personalization

Key Points:

  • Editor's note: This episode 40 needed to be released because episode 39 wasn't quite ready. I'm trying to be ok with the break in numbering and hope you can be too.

  • We feel your exhaustion!!
  • Your awareness will bring more progress. This is the first step! And a big one.
  • Your family of origin greatly shapes your relationship with food. Don't just brush it under the rug. Hear the noise yet try to navigate around it.

  • You have options and choices. You can experience more empowerment by leaving diets and stop trying to control your body. WE BELIEVE IN YOU!
  • "Motivational" clichés as rules yet really shame-inducing myths. Look for quotes that ARE inspiring without shame and guilt. Clean up your social media to better include body positivity. This can help you normalize all body sizes.

Have you had an emotional connection to food that has helped you cope with crappy life events yet now you want to experience food in the way intended? Do you long to be a normal eater? Listen now for insight to steady and stable.

Subscribe and leave a review here in just seconds.

Key Points:

  • Who is a normal eater? Especially these days, our culture's typical normal eating is disordered, rigid, and pathological. There is a way through!
  • It is normal to emotionally eat sometimes. Unless you are a robot.
  • Sometimes it hurts more than helps and it's a great first step when recognize this.
  • Want normal eating = want peacefulness
  • Tracy Brown RD uses her experiences on farm to the rewiring brain process:
    • Dad never mowed shoulder-high pasture around pond.
    • A faint path would go down when drove over it and it would be tough to go over.
    • Becomes path of least resistance over time and easier.
    • Food behaviors can become path of least resistance.
    • What if made new path?? Will feel foreign or illegal at first yet over time you will get the hang of it.
    • Be sure to pause to help you recognize what's going on.
  • Create a pause to create something new. This is the first step!
  • Progress comes from permission and the pause.
  • I feel fat may = I feel uncomfortable.
  • Making new pathways is messy and honor the old path's functionality.
  • Get to the story of what makes it uncomfortable. What else could you be hungry for?
  • Doing this work will make your eating normal in your definition yet abnormal within our current eating culture.
