    Living in the Messy Middle: Nicole's Story

    This episode features a guest -- not an expert -- who is still working through her relationship with food and body image and doesn't have it all figured out. We hope you find it helpful to hear from someone who might be exactly where you are, and can relate to the parts of this process that don't feel like they have answers. We discuss:
    Where food and body issues started for Nicole Feeling stuck between “I can’t diet anymore” and “I can’t deal with my weight.” Photographs & mirrors as triggers Difficulty assessing fullness What is intuitive eating? What’s the goal? Worth, safety, and weight Fearing continued/future weight gain Guilt about doing this work and still struggling with body image and obsessive thoughts Separating parts of the self Join the LAD Membership

    But I Can't Trust Myself Around Food

    But I Can't Trust Myself Around Food

    Having a disordered relationship with food can erode our sense of self-trust. Not only do we learn to trust outside voices over our own hunger, but we also can't seem to keep the promises we make to ourselves about food. In this episode, we cover a range of topics including:
    What is self trust How promises to “not binge today” erodes our self-trust Shame, authenticity, and values What does our ego have to do with it? Consistency as a self-trust builder Stories of laziness, flakiness, and irresponsibility showing up as a lack of self-trust The relationship between self-esteem and self-trust Join the LAD Membership

    But I Feel So Guilty About Food

    Guilt can be a huge barrier to feeling peaceful with food. What do we do with the feelings of guilt that remain around what we eat, how we eat, and how much we eat? In this episode, we discuss:
