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.

It's not about food behavior, it's about being able to internally emotionally regulate! "I've learned how to neutralize the things I'm saying to myself that really are distortions, and not really the truth." - Ellen The whole point of eating emotionally is to be mindLESS, which is why mindFULL eating is such a hard goal for people who deal with emotional eating.
