    189. How eating disorders can influence your relationship with money

    189. How eating disorders can influence your relationship with money

    Oftentimes, when I'm working with clients, an interesting conversation comes up around money. Some feel super conscious of spending any money, while others feel they spend too frivolously and can't seem to manage their money wisely. More often than not, what I say to clients is that "your relationship with food can often influence your relationship with money."
    The relationship that many people have with money can be seen as an extension of their relationship with their eating disorder and with themselves. In today's episode I discuss:
    The relationship between restricting food and restricting money How binge-spending can mirror binge-eating Labelling food as "good" or "bad" can often mean we label food similarly How controlling or overspending can be a symptom of low self-worth and low-self esteem Ways people with disordered eating use spending or saving money as a form of emotional coping How to break free from disordered decision making around money so you can have a healthy relationship with your finances Why "mindful attunement" is important when giving yourself permission to spend Your financial identity and how shifting it helps create a better money mindset Helpful ways you can rebuild a healthy relationship with money as you work towards recovery from disordered eating, eating disorders or hypothalamic amenorrhea ❤️ Join my newsletter list for weekly motivation and inspiration and you'll also receive a FREE copy of my eBook "Body Confidence (for life!) guide"

    188. How to Overcome the Social Pressure to Diet or Lose Weight for a Wedding

    70% of women will diet in order to fit into their wedding dress and brides-to-be are more likely to diet than the average woman. 
    Now you might be thinking that it isn’t that bad because they will return to normal eating after the wedding day is over but according to The National Eating Disorders Association, 35% of “normal dieters” progress to pathological dieting and from this 35%, 20-25% of them will develop eating disorders. 
    And if you ask us, that is 25% too many. 
    In today's podcast we want to help you think about the many reasons why people feel pressure to diet or lose weight for a wedding and how to prevent yourself from falling down the wed-shred rabbit hole. In this episode you'll learn:
    The top 3 reasons women feel pressured to lose weight before their wedding The average length of time people typically diet before their wedding and whether this is sustainable Why being smaller won't equal having a more enjoyable wedding days Ways to feel your best on your wedding day that don't involve dieting or weight loss How to appreciate your current body and feel comfortable in your wedding dress Ways to change your mindset, behaviours and refocus your energy if you feel you're getting caught up in the pressure to change your body for your wedding day ❤️ Join my newsletter list for weekly motivation and inspiration and you'll also receive a FREE copy of my eBook "Body Confidence (for life!) guide"
