Do you live with so much body shame that you've contemplated stomach surgeries such as gastric bypass? Are you someone who has already undergone this surgery? Has this surgery only made things with your body more confusing? Do you also deal with PCOS or other complicated health conditions that push weight loss for health? Are you a professional within the dietetics field who also deals with food and body issues? Listen now for some solutions on how to navigate with these various challenges.

Subscribe and leave a review here in just seconds.

Key Points:

  • Exciting announcement! In September I will be launching my very first online course, dedicated to people who are trying to find food peace while living with PCOS. Sign up for my newsletter to get updates!! And if you deal with PCOS and struggle with food and your body, I want to hear from you! Send me an email at LoveFoodPodcast@gmail.com, and let me know what you'd love to see in the course.
  • Dealing with all of these issues related to food is exhausting! Struggling with shame, acceptance, an eating disorder, and much more takes so much energy.
  • You are not a sham, but bariatric surgery as a solution to food peace is a sham.
  • Bariatric surgery is a stomach amputation. It does not have any documented long-term health outcomes, and we do NOT have enough data at this time to suggest that this surgery is a choice that will enhance personal wellness.
  • In any health profession it's important to have size diversity! Fat dietitians, fat gym teachers, and fat healthcare providers are important. If you want to hear more about this topic, check out Love, Food Episode 8 with Glenys Oyston.
  • Many people who choose to study nutrition that have an eating disorder background pursue it because they hope it will help them learn more about food for the sake of their eating disorder, not because they actually want to be dietitians.
  • Recovery from an eating disorder requires a great recovery team!
  • It is so, so common for dietitians and dietitians in training to seek out their own dietitian. If privacy is an issue, many practitioners work online now as well!
  • Question whether or not being a dietitian is for you! It's possible that when you find recovery, it may not be something that speaks to you anymore. This can be a hard decision, but you will get through it!
  • Research and data on how to help people who have had bariatric surgery recover from an eating disorder is sparse because it's a new experience, but it is becoming more common, and there are definitely practitioners out there who can help.
  • REJECTING weight loss is going to be an essential part of the healing process! One cannot heal from an eating disorder while they pursue weight loss!!! When you seek out treatment, make sure your support team is weight neutral. You may even be able to find a Health at Every Size practitioner!
  • People are more likely to experience an eating disorder if they have PCOS.
  • It really isn't about food... it's about stigma, shame, and food lies.
  • Don't give body hate more power!!

Our world believes food kills us or cures us but information tends to conflict. Eating a "no" food can provoke anxiety in many people. Does this happen to you? Let's dig in to find ways to remove anxiety's wedge and power.

Subscribe and leave a review here in just seconds.

Key Points:

  • Thank you students from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro's Nutrition Department for the fun and energizing discussions on weight, eating disorders, and body image. Julie completed her dietetic internship there and thankful for the time there.
  • Even though it may appear to be simple, nutrition science is not an easy science A.
  • Our world believes food kills us or cures us. Stop the dichotomous insanity! Food anxiety exists because nutrition science is a fluid science that cannot be categorized into yes and no boxes.
  • Anxiety can't hurt us yet the things we do to avoid the anxiety harm us.
  • Anxiety from food avoidance keeps us from experiencing joy. It also promotes poor health by increasing stress hormones which can promote heart disease and strokes.
  • Phobia 10 point scales combined with fear food examples can help one move past the anxiety from eating those fear foods. This is long term incredible work that requires a therapist and dietitian. So worth your time and energy!!
  • Let's address that fear of fat. Fat phobia provokes Julie dropped an F bomb because that fear promotes disease, isolation, oppression, and ignorant stereotypes.
  • Size diversity makes us beautiful.
  • Size acceptance helps people of ALL sizes experience more health and better health care.
  • Peel back anxiety layers and find fears based on something old living in our body. Challenge it and you can get back to being you. Which brings you closer to your joy.

Special bonus sans letter to keep you connected to your innate wisdom and quiet the noise that distracts you. Walking this path can promote health and peace. I hope you enjoy.

Body acceptance and respect is all fine and good yet what if one gains weight due to medications? Does this trump non-diet approach research? Does this make the pursuit of weight loss health promoting? If so, how can one lose weight in a healthy way??

Subscribe and leave a review here in just seconds.

Key Points:

  • Our family of origin teaches us how to relate to food and our body. If you grew up in a family with disordered eating and/or body hate, it teaches us to fear fat and to prevent it all costs. Even if it hurts.
  • The only thing we can tell about a person from their weight is our own weight bias (based on a quote from Marilyn Wann). Not health.
  • Those at higher weights may very well be eating in a health promoting way so if you get at a higher doesn't mean you must now worry about your weight. The worry very well could lead to more disease.
  • Should you diet if you've gained weight from a medication? No. What if you've gained 100 pounds or more...does that make a difference? It's a moot point for Julie. The weight gain amount does not matter. We have no diet that promotes effective and health promoting outcomes long-term for more than 3 to 5%. Julie demands better data before I can recommend a weight loss diet. Otherwise, Julie would be promoting something without sound scientific backing.
  • Twin studies suggest the more one diets, the more they weigh.
  • Friend: "I am going on a diet." Julie: "Oh, are you trying to gain weight??" Friend: "Uhhh, no. Huh?"
  • All change brings melancholy so respecting your current higher size due to medication may warrant a time of grief.
  • If you don't agree with this podcast episode, I welcome the conversation. Please send me the data.

Raising children and all its food mess can bring up somepast,somewhat resolved, bad body thoughts. Throw in everyone'sopinionon the best way to feed your children, and you may feel likeyouare in an eating disorder relapse tailspin. How can youprovidevariety and teach healthy eating without sparking thateatingdisorder?? Can you prevent passing it on toyourchildren??

Key Points:

  • We don't cry over spilled milk in our house yet it can getundermy skin.
  • When knee deep in the meal time chaos take a deep breath,stepback, and know many parents are feeling this same strugglefeedingtheir children. #TheStruggleIsReal
  • Julie's daughter decided to go rouge with her sour creamandjust about freaked Julie out.
  • With a few boundaries, our children will get the nutrientstheyneed without having to be constantly policed.
  • Katie Holder RD rock and rolls in the meal time chaos.Sheprovides insight to get us through.
  • Trust your instincts when something in feeding feels off.
  • Peace at meal time happens when our kids feel safe andcompetentwith the food choices yet meal time may still feelbonkers.
  • Family style dining can promote a healthy relationshipwithfood. Include a couple of starches, fruit, vegetable, aprotein,and couple sources of fat. Plop them on thetable. Kids decidehow much if any they will eat of these. Nopressure to eat certainfoods. No bribes. No foods beforeothers.
  • Expect food jags due to preference and appetite. At two yearsofage, pickiness peaks and willingness to try things changes.
  • Katie's son didn't eat a vegetable for a whole year...and noonetook her nutrition license away ;-)
  • Serve dessert at dinner not afterwards sometimes. Teachesallfoods are normal and enjoyable.
  • Never force a child to eat something. Child needs to be abletohave permission to not eat and learn how to say it politely.
  • Meal time boundaries help everyone. Including givingcaregiversa chance to take a break. At some time we need to be ableto say,"THE KITCHEN IS CLOSED!" Healthy boundaries can preventpassing onthat eating disorder.
  • All those caregivers out there: you are doing a great job!

I had to tape a bonus episode after some brand spanking new content became available for Episode 10's Guilty Clean Eater. If you identified with Episode 10's letter writer, know that we clinicians now have more to go on to help you feel more at peace with food.

Key Points:

  • Julie and Jennifer met up at the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals Symposium. They felt privileged to hear Dr. Steven Bratman speak on Orthorexia Nervosa with dietitians Amanda Mellowspring and Jessica Setnick. Dr. Bratman was the first person to describe the eating disorder obsessed with healthy eating. Yet, until now, it wasn't officially considered an eating disorder.
  • The presentation included the first official unveiling of the diagnostic criteria for Orthorexia Nervosa. Why does this matter? Julie and Jennifer discuss how this helps clinicians better treat this experience, promotes insurance coverage, and increases research funding.
  • Julie and Jennifer had a tough time getting technology to cooperate to make this bonus episode happen PLUS Julie knocked over a bottle of water on her chair just as taping started...so she had to sit in it the whole time. Gotta listen after all that!

Long term food fights and body dissatisfaction cause friction, anger, and longing. The letter writer describes her start with body hate and dieting as a child only leading to disordered eating and weight gain. Is her experience rare? Nope. Millions experience the same. This episode debunks calories in calories out especially as it relates to certain health conditions. Knowing this, pursuing health without focusing on weight loss is just about the coolest thing since sliced bread. *Rejoicing with the food pun!*

Subscribe and leave a review here in just seconds.

Key Points:

  • Anger and rage is uncomfortable yet can project us toward change. Stay with it!
  • Your f*ed up relationship with food is not your fault. Not. Your. Fault.
  • No matter your size and no matter how your body got to be the size is today--you deserve respect and equality. Many years of self hate, diets, and cultural weight/size oppression may have promoted your body to be larger than what your DNA was originally programed to be.
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a genetic/environmental hormonal dysregulation leading to infertility, high insulin levels, mood disorders, eating disorders and negative body image. Most PCOS research uses weight focused therapies which sucks; women told to "just lose weight" when diagnosed. High insulin levels make this impossible long term. Julie recommends healing the hormones with medical interventions then work on healthy behaviors to promote health and avoid eating disorders. Cutting calories too low causes more problematic inflammation and cravings to binge when affected by PCOS.
  • Health at every size (HAES®) is not:
    • encouraging bingeing yet does not demonize food choices
    • glorifying obesity yet does honor every body and think every body deserves equal rights
    • healthy at every size *the extra Y is huge!* Experience health today not once at a certain weight.
    • All sizes deserve equal health care and respect.
  • HAES® includes attuned eating, pleasurable movement (check out Episode 4 on the Love, Food podcast for more on this), social justice for all sizes.
  • Everyone deserves to experience health in their body today. You too! Let's rage against the machine together.

Do you feel addicted to carbs, sugar, or any foods? Hear the latest research on food addiction and what dietitians in the trenches have to say about the experience. Can food addiction explain your problematic eating? Or is it something else?

Key Points:

  • Eating is just like peeing. Yup, it is although don't mix the two. Stop judging your food choices unless you also judge your urination habits.
  • Food can have too much power and if it does in your life you are not alone!
  • Don't believe the hype! The food addiction theory model has many limitations including:
    • Food addiction is poorly and vaguely defined. Too catch all.
    • Most research done on animals and can't translate directly to humans.
    • Fails to consider alternative explanations for neurobiological pathways seen in food addiction research.
    • When food restricted, pleasure centers of brain light up stronger than when not restricted. This means diets will make you feel addicted to food rather than food causing the addiction.
  • Marci says, "Food is meant to be rewarding" {My new favorite quote!}
  • We can be addicted to food just like we can be addicted to music and laughter.
  • Tug and pull with food can promote the food addiction experience when other underlying experiences promoting the experience.
  • Do you know of any food addiction research that is controlling for dieting, restriction, avoidance? Let us know!!
  • Dieting gets us in the way of primal evolutionary systems. When food feels addicting and a person is not a failure! The body is being a successful human.
  • What are the steps to recover from what feels like food addiction?
    • You are not alone!
    • Let's redefine the word healthy eating.
    • Is your eating satisfying and pleasurable. Be sure eating includes these!
    • Ponder this: what's happening in my body rather than what's happening in my brain?
    • Move the judgement and moralistic thinking away from food and the body will find balance to find health.

Show Notes:

  • My colleague and friend Marci Evans RD, CEDRD and ways to connect with her wisdom via twitter: @MarciRD. If you're training to become a dietitian or want to work with those affected by eating disorders, be SURE to check out her online training launching very soon. Check her blog regularly for food addiction information.

Do you parent a fat child? This letter comes from a large woman raising a child who is now teased at school because of her size. Should she put her child on a diet? Take her to the gym?

Subscribe and leave a review here in just seconds.

Key Points:

  • 12 in 100,000 children have Type 2 Diabetes* yet 2900 in 100,000 children experience an eating disorder**. Statistically, worry more about eating disorders than increased adiposity.
  • Teach kids how to have a healthy body image and a healthy relationship with food.
  • Is fat a bad word? Let's neutralize it. Just may be the key to positive body image and respecting others.
  • The Division of Food Responsibility by Ellyn Satter
  • What to do about junk foods? Stop calling them junk and refer to them as fun foods because they are fun! Offer them a few times a week at a snack or as part of a meal.
  • Do you make your child go to the gym? No pain no gain = more body hate. Encourage movement that feels pleasurable. As a parent, our job is to help children to connect to the movement their body prefers.

Changing culture to make room for all bodies including yours.

Subscribe or Leave a Review Here

A woman wants to exercise yet feels so uncomfortable in her larger body. She's too embarrassed for the gym, pools, and classes but she wants to exercise and move her body. She hopes Food can help her find the confidence to go to gym classes and a way to eat with enjoyment again. Can you relate??

I phone a friend, Debra Benfield, to help out Uncomfortable Wanna-Be Gym Rat and she speaks about magic carpets and ways to stay connected to promote health and peace.

Key Points

  • During season 2 of My Big Fat Fabulous Life, Julie was Whitney Thore's dietitian. Whitney experienced similar experiences to the letter writer and found her way back to movement in her larger body.
  • The letter writer is connected to her body in a health promoting way even though feeling negatively about it...keep connected to that!
  • The fear of judgement is powerful and in yoga, in it's most basic sense, is about leaving judgement at the door. Separating what others think about her and what she thinks will be key on and off the mat.
  • Weight oppression
  • Yoga modifications: start with not add later. Goal is challenge and ease not pain. Downward facing puppy to downward facing dog.
  • Our bodies let us know when it is time to move and trust it that is so much better than rules and regulations
  • Debra and Julie will be the last people on earth without FitBits...why??

Body Image During Life Transitions

Subscribe or Leave a Review Here

Going to the chapel, going to get married...only if I am skinny enough. Wha??? Today's letter writer struggles with body acceptance and can't seem to lose weight. She wants to have her soon-to-be husband to make a contract: he can divorce her if she gains too much weight. Do you think this will give her the willpower to stay skinny? Do you think this will increase her motivation?

Key Points:

  • Just say no to weight focused marriage contracts!
  • Earth suits and pie in the sky views on unconditional love and marriage.
  • "If it's not about your weight, what would it be about?" Elizabeth Scott, LCSW from The Body Postive
  • 4 transitions that seem to be high risk times to experience eating disorders.
  • Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of all mental illnesses.
  • Focusing on disordered eating keeps us from experiencing the present. What are these behaviors distracting you from?
  • Willpower is a noun that does not belong with eating behaviors.
