The Love, Food Podcast: Peace from emotional eating, binge eating, eating disorders, and negative body image through intuitive eating and health at every size approaches
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.

Becoming a dietitian takes a LOT of work, including a ton of science education. Often, people who go into nutrition are intelligent and want to help people! These characteristics are so much more interesting and make up a much bigger part of our identity than our food choices!! In order to heal, it's time to let go of food as a part of our identity. It's VERY likely that your friends and family don't actually think of you in the context of your food, and that this is an identity you've created and maintained all on your own! Think about how you actually want people to identify you! Write it down, and keep it on hand for whenever you experience normal eating and feel like your identity is being compromised. Bingeing is often a by-product of rigidity, restriction, or other forms of strict eating. Recovery requires a team approach and a ton of support... find a dietitian near you who specializes in eating disorders and seek out therapy! What is "normal" eating?? Normal eating is balanced, non-restrictive, and nourishing. Our biology, and the drive to eat when we're restricting, is here to save us!!
