If you’ve tried different diets to help with food obsessions, binge eating or emotional eating, you may have concluded that your food and weight issues are not about food. These issues are about how you use food to deal with your emotions, experiences from your past, and beliefs that have resulted from past hurts or traumas. By working on your food and weight issues on a deeper level, you can expect your healing to also be deeper and more sustainable. Over the next podcasts I will be sharing with you the 5 Steps to Recovery from food and body image issues.

In this episode you will learn:

  1. Why focusing on the number on the scale cannot provide lasting results.
  2. How to stop unwanted behaviors related to food and body image issues.
  3. Why the COVID-19 pandemic quarantine may have made your food and body image issues a lot worse!
