Based on real experience, raw and truthful, Laurie Weaver gives you an intimate look inside her lifelong battle with compulsive eating and binge eating disorder as she slowly learns the principles of intuitive eating. Diets and binges, blame and hope, huge and rapid body weight fluctuations, peace and acceptance, guilt and rage. Laurie invites you to share her day to day journey toward better health and self-acceptance, bumps and all. She hopes to be a companion to others who struggle with, and to those who wish to learn more about compulsive overeating. Compulsive Overeating Diary is an exploration of how food issues can mirror life issues. Its shared stories help us discover how changes in mindset, as well as intentional behavior, can impact our lives not just our sizes.

Hi Laurie! I just discover your podcast and I listened to the first 7 ones and I love it! Your journey seems like mine exactly! Same struggles over and over until I reached 50 and let go of dieting for good! I love your honesty and your courage! It's helping me a lot in my own journey!
Awesome podcast. Listening to Laurie's unscripted real life journey to finding peace with food is so inspirational. Definitely worth a listen.
Love this podcast!
I've been binge listening to Laurie and it's like she's speaking directly to me. She is so brave, open and honest about her thoughts and feelings. Very inspiring!
