Who better to kick off season 3 of WWRadio than today’s radically authentic guest. She brings out my own raw insights on our relationship with food and body image. Isabel Foxen Duke is only our second repeat guest and an emotional freedom from food extraordinaire and coach, Isabel stopped by Wonderland on episode 009 to shed light on real techniques on how to release toxic relationships to food and tell her personal food journey that led her to the work she does with women today. Most of us have become lint rollers picking up some pretty nasty thought patterns around food, whether we realize it or not. I challenge you to own it first and then listen to today’s episode with an open mind about changing that.
We discuss this in our first Podcast together but the first step to freedom from emotional attachment to food and becoming what Ellyn Satter calls a ‘normal eater’ is to get honest about where you are. In this conversation we’ll help you figure out exactly where that is. Listen to the whole thing, it’s really eye opening and packed with info so you might want to listen multiple times to really let is soak in. We go really high level in this podcast so jump back to listen to our first episode together to get more info about Isabel and her personal story in episode 009. & I’ve also interviewed her multiple times & all those links are below as well.
My favorite lines & nuggets of wisdom: YEP THEY’RE TWEETABLES…Just click right on ‘em!
“The reason people diet is because they don’t feel good enough in their bodies or fear fat.”
-Binge eating can come from emotional restriction (as well as physical food restriction), ie. ‘the diet starts tomorrow’ If you are shaming or guilting yourself, you will have the impulse to “get it in quick (binge eat) because the diet starts again tomorrow.”
-Weight is a temping thing to use to control how other people think of us BUT…a. It’s not that effective because yes people judge you on your size but they also judge you on a million other things too. b. You have to ask yourself what are you willing to put yourself through to get people to like and respect you. Are you willing to make yourself miserable by dieting to make people like you or not?
-If you have a history of dieting…then when you are stressed you will turn to food and eat, but the biological response in stressful situations is to not eat. So non-dieters will not eat when they are stressed because they will loose their appetite. This response but be reset for chronic dieters. Learn how here.
