Ok, so if you didn’t listen to last weeks episode, this is Part 2 of my journey with Food Addiction and self healing, in fairness, there is probably a Part 3 in me that deserves to be mentioned but, I haven’t recorded that yet… We’ll see…
This episode is focused on the things that have worked for me such as:
I’m going to keep up much of the show notes from last weeks episode for those of you reading this for the first time.
As I said last week, if you have been a long time listener, much of this won’t be new to you, but there should still be some things that you might not have heard before and some pieces of my story that you might find beneficial in your own recovery.
In this episode I talk about:
The importance of Community
Meditation and Food Addiction
Whole Food Plant-Based Eating
Health Coaching & What is the role of the Health Coach
The Pleasure Trap (read this for a more thorough explanation of the pleasure trap by Dr Doug Lisle and Dr Alan Goldhamer )
Stress and food addiction
This journey has not been linear for me, I have definitely gone round and round the mulberry bush but I will say, with every loop, things get a little better, I keep learning and growing and deepening my self awareness around my triggers for overeating/compulsive eating. These days the foods I tend to over eat are no longer entire sticky date puddings and 3 blocks of chocolate, these days when I’m triggered by stress or low self worth I might eat too many high calorie fruits, nut butters or an occasional vegan dessert, but the wins on the board far out weigh the losses and I know, without doubt, that I’m moving in the right direction on my journey healing my relationship with food and ultimately, healing my relationship with myself, once and for all.
I’d really love to hear your experiences/thoughts re food addiction in the comment section of this episode if you’d feel comfortable sharing it - what has worked for you?
