  • Food insecurity causes many people to binge eat, hoard food, and feel obsessed with food. Not a cop-out. Legitimate cause of urges to binge and feeling unable to stop eating.
  • Childhood food patterns influence adult behaviors.
  • Takes courage to peel back the darkness.
  • First steps to work toward healing:
    • Food is symbolic. Wonder what food represents missed during childhood? Be that for herself. Validate have wants and needs.
    • Appreciate how much deprivation contributes to bingeing, feeling unable to stop eating. It’s a physiologically programmed response.
  • Want to heal your relationship with food? Stop pursuing weight loss or will continue to feel like can’t stop eating.
  • It wasn’t your fault you keep eating. Your body was/is trying to save you. Your not broken, needing to be fixed. Kick that shame to the curb!!
  • Make room for the feeling without feeling shame for it being there.
  • Compassionate curiosity is the foundation for food peace.
