How’s your relationship with food? Is it “complicated”?

In our weight and image-obsessed culture, it is very easy to feel very overwhelmed about food. This “complicated” relationship can sabotage our very best efforts, leave us feeling down, and simply take the fun out of eating.

Who wants that? I’m here to tell you, it doesn’t have to be this way!

In this episode, I’m going to dive into the 10 signs of an unhealthy relationship with food.

This type of relationship may be considered to be a form of disordered eating.

Many are unaware that they may have disordered eating. Disordered eating is defined as a variety of disturbed, abnormal eating behaviors, and every 3 out of 4 women suffer from it…and most aren’t even aware!

Disordered eating is often ignored, or worse, celebrated or prescribed in our fatphobic, “wellness”-obsessed culture. Are you curious if your “clean eating” might be too clean?

You have feelings of guilt around food

Everything is all about the numbers
You have designated “Cheat” days
