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.
