"Body image is the picture you hold in your mind of your body."

When you hold a negative picture or are dissatisfied with your body, it can be a significant predictor of compulsive overeating, binge eating, emotional distress, depression, and problems in your relationships. Having positive feelings about your body if you are in a bigger body may be difficult in a culture filled with images of the thin “ideal,” but it’s not impossible.

In this podcast, you will learn:

  1. How childhood adversity or trauma affects body image.

  2. Why you may have trouble knowing what you are feeling.

  3. How eating can be part of your survivor self’s playbook.

  4. How to tap into your body’s wisdom.
