When someone makes a comment about your appearance, how does it make you feel? And how long does the feeling stay with you? Praise and criticism, comparison and ranking can all send us on an emotional roller coaster ride, especially when it comes to how our body looks. But as it turns out, these critical or complimentary assessments aren’t just small talk – they actually have an evolutionary basis that helped early humans survive. Today, our physical and psychological responses to positive or negative feedback tend to happen on an unconscious level, but it’s extremely important to understand these processes if we want to experience the happiness and self-love that we deserve. In this podcast episode, Marc David, founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, presents a mind-bending new perspective on the impact of criticism on our metabolic well being. This will change the way you talk to yourself forever!
