Key Points:

  • Julie needs your letters! Send your letter detailing your complicated relationship with Food to LoveFoodPodcast@Gmail.com.
  • You’ve been fighting for many years and I appreciate that is exhausting!
  • The doctor’s comment did not cause this struggle yet totally F-ed it up! Doctors pointing out fat bodies as wrong happens too often and leads to distrusting the body and feeling unacceptable. I wish health providers knew their power to prevent eating disorders especially when a mom brings her child in concerned about disordered eating. To health providers: don’t say they should lose weight or exercise more!!
  • Shame in the food choices: food dichotomy doesn’t promote health. Food isn’t supposed to have this much power and pride.
  • Food gets too much power. It doesn’t deserve it!
  • Bulimia’s behaviors promote fluid shifts, puffiness, and body shame.
  • Relationships heal this. They are much more important and valuable than this eating disorder.
  • Next steps are painful BUT all worth it because recovery will allow these relationships to continue to blossom and fulfill your life.
  • You need to choose from a “healthy” weight loss journey OR eating disorder recovery? Can’t have both. We can’t make peace with food AND pursue weight loss. Pursuing weight loss will only enhance eating disorder behavior and negative body image.
  • Healthy relationships are not compatible with the eating disorder.
  • Unconditional acceptance and respect is what is missing.
  • Take it slow. Day by day. Surround yourself with helpers. Be mindful to pick a helper that is body positive.

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.
  • Trying to recover from an eating disorder is exhausting especially within a family and world that hasn’t recovered yet.
  • 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.
  • Curiosity
  • Finding a team can really help alleviate this exhaustion.
  • Don’t get stuck in the shame loop.
  • So you know the diet industry is all a sham. Join us out of the fog.
  • You have options and choices. You can experienced 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.
