If you’ve been struggling with binge eating, emotional eating and food addiction for most of your life, you may view your body as an adversary. When you experience negative feelings about your body, it may be the result of past hurtful experiences from childhood, which can lead to a disconnection between you and your body. This can lead to your self-evaluation (how you feel about yourself) being tied to your body size or shape and a desire to whip your body into shape. When you reconnect to your body, you can tap into a vast reservoir of wisdom and advise that will guide you in your recovery from binge eating, emotional eating and food addiction.

In this episode you will learn:

  1. What is body image?
  2. What are the 3 causes of negative body image?
  3. What in your childhood is the key to understanding your body image issues?
