Clean eating. Low carb. Low fat. Do this not that. Now what? Eating is getting too stuffy and complicated. Throw open your windows to allow a new stream of health, wellness, and peace.

What if you could write a letter to food? Pen to paper, you hash out the love/hate relationship and food’s undeserving power. Details go back years, to your first childhood diet trying to fit in. How you relate to food chronicles many of your life’s ups and downs.

In this letter, you examine your dusty food beliefs and wonder which go in the trash, are for others, and which remain in your heart.

What if you wrote this all down and food wrote you back? This is Love, Food.

Food behavior expert and host, Julie Duffy Dillon is rolling up her sleeves to get to the bottom of what is really healthy. This award-winning dietitian seen on TLC’s My Big Fat Fabulous Life has a secret: food is not your enemy and your body is tired of the constant attacks.

Show topics include:

emotional eating
weight concerns
binge eating
orthorexia
body image
eating disorders
dieting
parenting and food
healthy eating
stress eating
food addiction
mindful eating
non diet approaches

Pull up a chair to your dusty kitchen table and set it for a meal. Ask food to sit alongside you and chat over coffee. Or a margarita. You have some reconnecting to do. In that connection is Love, Food. In that conversation is health and peace.

    Season 5 Finale--I was scared to use my voice

    Season 5 Finale--I was scared to use my voice

    Six years ago, Love Food was being born. I was sweating bullets the first time I published an episode mostly because I was so scared to use my voice. But I really wanted to help you feel less alone on your Food Peace Journey so I did it anyway! Thank you for helping me to grow. In this season finale, I share the hits and misses I have made over the years recording this show. I announce changes to expect in 2022. Thank you for joining me so far and looking forward to continue to grow together in Season 6!

Food Peace…what a beautiful thought

If you’re on contemplating starting or already on your path to “food peace”, or maybe cannot even put those two words side by side yet, this podcast is a great resource of information and encouragement. For those of us with PCOS, Julie is a great resource for that. If you’re trying to take back your life and body from the diet culture machine, this podcast is a must.

Reconnecting with food

Ahhhh the mind games we play with you; food. Good foods, bad foods, healthy foods…I can’t anymore! And to my friends that say, today I’m going to be good or be bad around food; I just can’t. The whole wellness community in disguise makes my skin crawl. We give way too much credit to food. Let’s find PEACE! Thanks for this.

Priceless Resource

Julie Duffy Dillon presents common-sense, compassionate suggestions for ditching diet culture and reclaiming true health and body trust. The format is always interesting, as it presents letters addressed to food from folks just like me. Julie brings on guests with whom she discusses the issues in the letters, and the resultant conversations are always helpful and present a variety of approaches and voices. I never miss an episode, and am grateful to have found this pod!
