Meet Kristie. Like so many other 31-year-olds, she has a history of an eating disorder, and a life-long journey with negative body image. As he learns more about Kristie's story, Marc David, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, he makes a distinction about the unique culture in which she grew up. A culture around which she went through some really tough life experiences, and it wasn't something 'talked about' at home. She has, in a sense, taken her healing and growth into her own hands. Firstly, Marc encourages her to celebrate the success she has already had. Secondly, he invites her to continue the inner work. It's about continuing to confront the lack of communication and avoiding uncomfortable conversations. True freedom may only be possible if she continues goes through, not around, her feelings. Check our this episode to see what Kristie can move into so that she can truly feel comfortable in her own skin, and be present in moments where she may typically freeze, judge herself, or try to fix. Hint: It doesn't have to do with her body.
