The Love, Food Podcast: Peace from emotional eating, binge eating, eating disorders, and negative body image
About This Show
Clean eating. Low carb. Low fat. Do this not that. Now what? Eating is getting too stuffy and complicated.
Throw open your windows to allow a new stream of health, wellness, and peace. Time to examine your dusty food belief knick-knacks.
What if you could write a letter to food? Pen to paper, you hash out the love/hate relationship and food’s undeserving power. Details go back years, to your first childhood diet trying to fit in. How you relate to food chronicles many of your life’s ups and downs.
In this letter, you examine your dusty food beliefs and wonder which go in the trash, are for others, and which remain in your heart.
What if you wrote this all down and food wrote you back? This is Love, Food.
Food behavior expert and host, Julie Duffy Dillon is rolling up her sleeves to get to the bottom of what is really healthy. This award-winning dietitian seen on TLC’s My Big Fat Fabulous Life has a secret: food is not your enemy and your body is tired of the constant attacks. Show topics include:
*parenting and food
*non diet approaches
Pull up a chair to your dusty kitchen table and set it for a meal. Ask food to sit alongside you and chat over coffee. Or a margarita. You have some reconnecting to do. In that connection is Love, Food. In that conversation is health and peace.

Do you think if you lost weight you'd finally be free? Are you stuck in a loop of binge--> notice weight gain--> diet--> binge--> repeat? Feel like you would be free from its hellish grip if you could just lose the weight?? Like the binges would cease to exist once the weight was lost?? Do you wonder why you have been trapped in this for decades?? Julie sees what's blocking your path. Listen now for insight. Subscribe and leave a review here in just seconds. Key Points: Content warning: specific weight discussion Healthy vs unhealthy versions of food = food dichotomy = black and white thinking = perfectionism that doesn't even exist. This is a disordered eating pattern and will keep you stuck in this loop. Practice giving yourself permission to eat these "unhealthy foods" although not easy. Can typically take a year for this to stick. Freedom will only happen by not place your worth and value in your weight and weight loss pursuit. Pursuing weight loss keeps us in the disordered eating loop. Keeps foods in that dichotomy. The pursuit of weight loss would enhance the binge/diet loop and enhance the black and white thinking. How do you move away from using weight as a measure of health and worth?? Find a counselor and dietitian who align with these values. When seduced by the fantasy of losing weight be aware that is happening and call it out as the mindfuck that it is. Expect sadness, grief, and anger. You don't need to fight yourself to find freedom. Rather you need to fight the culture. You need to fight body hate in order to find your own food peace. Show Notes: Link to subscribe to the weekly FREE Food Peace Newsletter.
