    Self-Care in Chaotic Times & My Sister’s Secrets (BONUS!)

    Self-Care in Chaotic Times & My Sister’s Secrets (BONUS!)

    This is a bonus episode!! Usually I do an episode every other week. But hey! The world is upside down! I am going to be putting out more episodes during this crazy world-wide quarantine.



    Today I talk about how forced shelter in place is very different from the way I define rest, I talk to body image coach Summer Innanen about quarantine self-care, and chat with my sister Margaret about her broken arm, her relationship with food, her health journey, and she spills lots of her secrets.



    ***



    Show Notes:



    00:00 Hello! Welcome to the bonus episode.



    3:10 I share how this forced quarantine is very different from my own personal definition of rest. Being forced to stay in your house is not inherently the same as resting.



    8:57 My convo with Summer Innanen.

    Scarcity Mentality, Empty Grocery Shelves, and Quarantine Silver Linings

    Scarcity Mentality, Empty Grocery Shelves, and Quarantine Silver Linings

    Let's talk about the coronavirus panic, the food and resource hoarding, the current realities of this global pandemic, AND let's also talk about the silver lining, find a little thread of optimism, and figure out what's reasonable panic and what's unnecessary panic! And let's also start viewing dense food as life sustaining OK!?!?!?!



     



    This episode's show notes:



     



    I answer the following questions (and more):



    I find myself food hoarding and stress eating with the coronavirus panic. Is this a bad sign? What can I do about it?

    I bought and stocked up on lots of food but have not been eating it, is this an ED flare up?

    Do I have spring allergies or the coronavirus???



     

    Plus, I also talk about:

    How diet culture is trying to co-opt our panic

    Some simple ways to stress relieve and take care of yourself when everything feels scary

    And other tiny silver linings of self-isolation.

    Plus! At the end, I have a convo with my (weed-loving) friend about coronavirus and... weed & the munchies & disordered eating. (She also is a therapist and has an LMFT!)

    Let’s Talk About Weight Set Point

    Let’s Talk About Weight Set Point

    Ever since The F*ck It Diet book came out, I've been paying attention to the most commonly asked questions, and trying to address them. And one of the biggest question themes is about weight set point.



    And the first thing I want to always point out, is that it's a weight set range. Whenever anyone refers to weight set point, the point is actually a weight range where your body feels safest.



    This is not exactly a newbie question, this is usually a question people ask after they've read the book and start worrying about what this process is going to be like for them, which is understandable. There is usually a thought process that goes something like:



    "Ok, so you're telling me that my bingeing and food addiction is not actually a food addiction, but more of biological food fixation thanks to food insecurity, past attempts at dieting, diet mentality, food guilt, and the threat of future diets? Ok. And you're telling me that when I get out of the yo-yo, stop restricting, start truly trusting and feeding my body, that my appetite will normalize? OK... And you're telling me that my body has a weight set point where it wants to be, and will settle there if I can just trust my appetite??"



    Well, again, it's a weight range, not a static point.



    And with the disclaimer that The F*ck It Diet book will do a way better job of explaining the nuances of this process beyond the 95-word inner monologue synopsis I wrote above, let's get to the common questions about weight set range:



    HOW MUCH OF A RANGE IS MY WEIGHT SET RANGE?



    HOW LONG IS IT GOING TO TAKE TO STABILIZE IN MY WEIGHT SET RANGE?!?!



    HOW WILL I KNOW THAT I'VE SETTLED IN MY WEIGHT SET RANGE????



    In a way, I regret all of the focus I have to put on normalizing in a weight set range because it can become, in it's own way, a diet-like mentality. It puts the focus on weight. It makes a promise about weight that people focus on in a way that can undermine healing.



    I tend to prefer focusing on how allowing food, and eating more food, can calm down fixation on food, compulsive eating, binge eating, feelings of food addiction, and even emotional eating.



    At the same time, I also understand the focus on weight. I understand that's an essential piece of the puzzle. And if I said: Just eat a lot, gain lots of weight, fuck weight stabilization and frankly: fuck everything and everyone, most people would say: Eh, No thanks. Sounds like anarchy. Though, it should be said that I think that anarchy would be healing in its own right, it's still not really the full picture. Because... what the fuck is going on with our weight? Why do we struggle with weight? Why do we seem to gain weight at the drop of a hat, while other people don't? How does weight work? Of COURSE WE WANT TO KNOW THE ANSWER TO THESE QUESTIONS! And without some sort of assurance that you will have a more stable experience with your eating and weight, I'm not sure many people would take the leap.



    And, contrary to what The F*ck It Diet's biggest detractors think, I'm not encouraging people to gorge themselves into oblivion just for the freaking sake of it, even though, again, I support it if that's what your soul is calling you towards. Because after being forced to obsess over something as soul sucking as the size of your body for years, fuck everyone, really. But, the truth is, that we are obsessed with food, act out of control with food, and feel addicted to food because of our fear of food and weight. The biggest predictor for future weight gain, weight cycling, and binge eating, is dieting and intentional weight loss. So if what you want is to feel calmer around food,

    Disordered Eating in Nutrition School with Maddie Deakin

    In this episode, Maddie Deakin (of Messy Health) shares her experience with extreme dieting while she was in nutrition school, being the only larger bodied person in her nutrition class, using dieting as a coping mechanism to feel a sense of control, and her experience recovering from disordered eating in a larger body. She also shares great advice and inspiration for people who are recovering from years of dieting and disordered eating.



    Maddie Deakin (the mind behind the account Messy Health) is a HAES and Non-Diet Nutritionist (BFoodSc&Nutr) in Australia, and she explores the intersection between food, health, and the body - without dieting.

    Dietitian Anna on Refeeding Symptoms & Chasing Miracle Cures

    Dietitian Anna on Refeeding Symptoms & Chasing Miracle Cures

    Are you curious about some of the common (and temporary) physical side effects of re-feeding after chronic dieting, an eating disorder, or any other phase of under eating???



    When you've been dieting for a long time and finally start eating more, or when you've had an eating disorder and start eating more, most bodies will have uncomfortable physical symptoms (digestive issues, skin issues, etc.) Lots of people take this as an opportunity to freak out, and assume it's a sign that they should go back to restricting.



    So, wouldn't it be nice to hear that those symptoms are... normal? And to be expected????? Ya! We talk about that (among many other things!) on today's episode. 



    Today I chat with @DietitianAnna (Anna Sweeney MS, CEDRD-S) about her experience as a dietitian specializing in eating disorder recovery, Health at Every Size®, and Intuitive Eating. But she also shares what it's been like living with chronic illness and disability, and navigating wellness culture her whole life.



    Listen to our chat and find/follow online: @DietitianAnna



    AND! I'm doing a Live Free Event with Christy Harrison in Philadelphia, on January 30th, 2020, at 7:15 at Head House Books. SEE YOU THERE.
