If you have binge eating, food addiction or emotional eating, you may know that diet culture has rebranded itself as “healthy” vs. the prior focus on the thin ideal, losing weight or getting skinny. There has also been a trend by social media influencers to market detox products to make money, but in doing so, they may be contributing to the development of eating disorders in their followers.

In this podcast you will learn:

  1. Why detox products can be dangerous.
  2. What is orthorexia?
  3. How can mindfulness help your break free of food obsessions.
  4. Specific steps you can take to reset your body and mind in the new year.
