How many times have you sat down to a meal already worried about the calories in the food you’re eating? Or plagued by feelings of guilt and feelings of loss of control instead of the pleasure and nourishment of eating?
If you often have an inner food battle, as do so many of us, and if you want to pass a healthy food relationship onto your now or future daughters, today’s episode is for you. Around the holidays specifically, it can be hard to relax and enjoy ourselves when the society we live in is filled with images and ideals of unrealistic body standards.
So join me for a very special episode this week to learn about
The relationship between cortisol and stress eating, and why willpower isn't just about 'you'.
The powerful influence of family history culture and society on body image and how this translates into our relationship with food, and what food 'introjects' are
The benefits of mindful eating and how this can transform not only your relationship with food, but digestion and metabolism as well
Where digestion actually begins, and why this is so important for carbohydrate digestion
How to eat to satiety rather than overfullness and ways to let go of the food battle in your mind
I'll also be leading you through a special visualization on mindful eating and providing you with tools to help you navigate food healthfully through this holiday season and beyond. I wish you a whole new and loving relationship with food and your body, with no resolutions, no battles, and no struggles needed, starting right now.
