“Weight stigma is associated with several physical and psychological health consequences.” You've realized that diets don't work for binge eating, compulsive overeating, food addiction, or emotional eating. You've been on a lot of diets and even though you lose weight, it doesn't last. After many diets, you've come to the conclusion that there's more to your food and body image issues than a diet can fix. You feel good about this insight. You may even be working towards taking steps to make peace with food and your body. But why can't you stop thinking about dieting! In this podcast, you will learn:
  1. What do twin studies teach us about binge eating, food addiction, and emotional eating?
  2. Why one physician’s research led him to stop recommending the intermittent fasting diet.
  3. How weight stigma can make binge eating, emotional eating, and food addiction worse.
