If you’re struggling with food addiction, binge eating or emotional eating, at some point you may have come to realize that there’s something deeper to your food and body image issues. If you ask yourself what the cause is of most of your suffering about your food obsessions and body hatred, you may realize that it is because of these problems you have not allowed yourself to express who you truly are. You may have held yourself back in your career, in relationships, as a parent and in other roles you play in life because of your size. The ultimate goal of recovery from binge eating, food addiction or emotional eating is to find soul satisfaction and to bring it into all areas of your life, including your relationship with food and how you feel about your body.

In this episode, you will learn:

  1. What is soul satisfaction?
  2. What does soul satisfaction have to do with my binge eating, food addiction or emotional eating?
  3. Why is soul satisfaction not about religion or even spirituality?
  4. How can food and body image issues be metaphors for what is missing in your life?
