Let’s be honest: trying to figure out what’s best to eat for our unique body – and stick to it – can be really hard.
So can trying to lose weight.
If we’re not careful, our whole life can become dominated by food, what to eat – and what not to eat, trying to be “good,” and constant thoughts about our diet.
Diet anxiety can happen to all of us, and it often drives us to what Marc David, founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, refers to as “all or nothing eating.”
One of the hallmarks of this behavior is we’re either eating 100% clean and healthy food, or we’ve ditched our diet and binge on sweets, carbohydrates, or fatty foods. There’s no in between.
This “all or nothing” approach keeps us trapped in a cycle that simply doesn’t work.
We may successfully lose weight for a time, but our healthy habits reach a point where they’re no longer sustainable. Our diet starts slipping, and our weight will often go up. Self-attack, shame, and guilt quickly follow.
If you’re prone to all or nothing eating, you’ll want to tune in to this episode, where Marc works with 60-year old Lee.
Like so many of us, Lee has been dieting for decades, and goes through, in her words, “healthy” and “unhealthy” phases. Her unhealthy phases seem to last forever, and when they do, she can’t stop thinking about her diet, the 20 kilos she’d like to lose, and what she needs to do differently in order to commit to a healthier lifestyle.
Watch Lee’s breakthrough in her challenges around nutritional extremism and weight – you’ll come away with some life-changing tools and takeaways.
