In Session With Marc David: A Naturalist Grandmother Learns to Become Her Own Health Advocate

https://psychologyofeating.online/ss/
Are you ready to transform your relationship with food in a lasting and meaningful way? What if you could help others find the path to greater freedom and joy with food as well?
 
A Naturalist Grandmother Learns to Become Her Own Health Advocate
 
Listen to eating psychology expert Marc David as he speaks with Holly, a 52-year old grandmother seeking to lose weight so she can be more active with her family and enjoy being active outdoors. Holly has been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and is dealing with sleep issues, low mood, and a lack of energy. Marc helps Holly zero in on some key diagnostics to pursue … and also helps her see better understand the places she gets stuck making good decisions for her health. Tune in now!
 
Key Insights:
  • Hypothyroidism can lead to a cascade of challenging symptoms, including weight gain, insomnia, low energy, and mood issues.
  • Another physiological cause (among many) for unwanted weight gain is undiagnosed diabetes. Undergoing diagnostic testing is important when looking at physiological causes of weight gain.
  • Naturopaths or functional medicine practitioners can be a great resource when looking at possible causes of weight issues.
  • Learning to become one’s own health advocate is of prime importance when dealing with any health issue — whether related to weight or other challenges.
  • Sometimes, our dearest loved ones don’t always know how to best support us in our health and weight challenges. It doesn’t mean they don’t care, however finding the support you need is vital … whether from a friend or a trained professional. 
With his dual training in clinical nutrition and psychology, Marc David has spent the last 40 years helping people around the world heal their relationship with food. As the founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, he reaches millions each year through his books, speaking engagements, celebrated podcast series, and his internationally-acclaimed Mind Body Eating Coach Certification Training.

Healing Family Lineage: A 37-Year Old Man’s Journey with Anger, Weight, & Reparenting

https://psychologyofeating.online/ss/
Are you ready to transform your relationship with food in a lasting and meaningful way? What if you could help others find the path to greater freedom and joy with food as well? 
 
In this episode of The Psychology of Eating Podcast, Marc David speaks to 37-year-old Eric who opens up about weight loss challenges, his relationship with his father, being a stay-at-home dad, and much more. The episode offers unique insight into the emotional healing that has to come on the path to resolving food and weight challenges. Through the enlightening conversation, Eric learns to give himself the kindness, presence, and gentleness that he missed receiving from his father. Watch now!
 
Key Insights:
  • Your relationship with your same-sex parent can have a huge bearing on your relationship with self, and consequently your relationship with food. Learning to reparent yourself is a vital first step towards resolving food and body issues.
  • Bring presence to eating and learning to inhabit your body are important keys to losing weight sustainably. 
  • Learn to be comfortable in your body. Love it, accept it, and to give it a hug – literally and figuratively. It is OK to ask for and get the help and support you need, however you need it.
  • Inhabiting your body can come through doing physical activities you love … whether through resistance training, dancing, hiking, or any other kind of movement. 
  • Anger is a powerful emotion that many of us don’t know how to work with constructively. Honor it, listen to it, learn from it. It’s often pointing us to a place inside ourselves that we need to care for and attend to.

Taking Responsibility for Our Relationship with Food

https://psychologyofeating.online/ss/
Are you ready to transform your relationship with food in a lasting and meaningful way? What if you could help others find the path to greater freedom and joy with food as well?
 
In this episode of The Psychology of Eating Podcast with Marc David, we meet Agnes who struggles with avoiding sugar and gluten. Food psychology expert Marc David traces Agnes's challenges with food back to her 14-year-old self when bullying in school made her feel the need to lose weight. Agnes now has an uneasy relationship with food and tries to avoid bingeing. Marc identifies her need to be in control as a possible issue, and reveals how she can enjoy and have fun with healthy eating. Listen now!
 
Key Insights
 
check mark button Many of the challenges people have around food start early, such as during one's teens. Peer pressure or bullying in school can create an unhealthy body image and an adversarial relationship around food. This can be healed even later in life.
 
check mark button Wanting to control what one eats and all other aspects of life is a natural instinct and that control feels good. However, there is a difference between control and taking responsibility, and it is taking responsibility that will help resolve challenges around eating.
 
check mark button Food is a reflection of life. Wanting to be in control of everything one eats then spills over into the need to be in control of every other aspect of life as well. It can be tough to let go, but learning to do this can be freeing.
 
check mark button Remember to savor the process of eating -- to eat the things that give pleasure, taste good and bring satiety to the body. Learn not to rush through the meal either out of habit or because that is what we are taught to do.
 
check mark button Eating can be fun. Wanting that bar of chocolate could actually be the voice of wisdom from inside the body, but we deny ourselves the fun of eating because we fear losing control. Scheduling pre-planned fun treats of those ‘forbidden’ foods could be a solution.
