Fear Around Food
Disordered relationships with food are an increasingly common problem and something that many people including yours truly have struggled with on a serious level. Negative body image, poor body confidence, dysmorphic thoughts, and stress and anxiety can all be related to our relationship with food and this episode is all about exploring the spectrum of disordered eating.
Learn why I have no tolerance for those who dismiss fear around food, how Paleo helped me feel more comfortable in my body, why I am passionate about bridging the gap between intuitive eating and nutritional therapy, plus much more.
If you feel like the rules and constructs you have around food is causing you stress, anxiety or social isolation, and want to stop the on again off again dieting, it is important to keep having these conversations. And if you are serious about helping people change the way they think about food you need to be open to having your mind changed as well.
