Noelle, 58, recently lost her mother after a three year journey being her primary caregiver. During that time, Noelle started binge eating to deal with her emotions and ended up gaining about 30 pounds. Heartbroken over her mother, Noelle is beginning to realize the impact of her grief on her patterns with food, and would like to somehow let go of the unwanted eating habits she developed over the past few years.
As you’ll hear in this episode of The Psychology of Eating Podcast, Noelle’s response to the unrelenting grief she’s been experiencing is very common. So many of us turn to food when we’ve experienced loss. While it’s normal and natural to regulate our emotions with food, we know it’s ultimately not the healthiest response.
As this session highlights, part of the solution to what we might call “grief eating” is having empathy and compassion for ourselves. As Marc shares – when we bring self-love to the table, we take the first step to unwinding our eating challenges.
So be sure to tune into this moving episode where we take a special look at the relationship between food, grief, and life.
