Celeste experienced sexual abuse at 8 years old... it's now 50 years later, and she knows her weight and binge eating in secret are directly connected to the trauma. Marc David, Found of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, gently uncovers more to the story so she can move from understanding this connection, to breaking free from her unwanted binge eating. He invites her to see that she is understandably turning to chocolate, a pleasurable food, to medicate from not knowing how to deal with being abused, and actually being sent to bed with no food by her Mother when she told the truth. The twist is, eating the chocolate is also done in secret with an element of shame to it, so she is in a sense recreating the trauma every time, because it's a comfort zone in a sense. Check out this episode to see the new insights and practices Celeste and Marc discuss so that she can finally be free.

Batul, age 23, comes to Marc David, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, with very clear intention she wants to lose 20 more lbs to get to her goal weight... a weight she has never weighed before. This goal is tied to her desire to step into self-expression, and own who she is. As we get deeper into the conversation, Marc explains the typical mother-daughter psychological connection, and we see how it pertains to Batul and her mother. There are so many ways she has wanted to be different than her mom, not because she doesn't love her, but because she is following her own intuition and path of personal growth. As she grows into her own woman, Marc invites her to get comfortable being uncomfortable. Batul realizes she will never be able to fully express her own truth and her body will never settle into it's natural weight if she keeps trying to please everybody else first.

Claudia, 34, opens up to Marc David, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, about her current inner conflict with food. There is the ideal she has about what to eat when it's in her control, and how she would like her and her partner to eat, especially since they are trying to conceive. Then, there is the never-ending confrontation of environments that don't include this way of 'healthy' eating. Marc relates to her with his own experience of raising his kid with the intention of instilling healthy eating habits, and also realizing everyone around us eats differently. Claudia begins to see how she can focus more on the positive with herself and with those around her, and learn to empower and trust, instead of being in a state of stress, control and force.
