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.Read more »

Episode's Key Points: Special guest Heidi Schauster, registered dietitian and eating disorder specialist of A Nourishing Word As human beings, we are designed to think about food--on average, about 200 times per day. When thoughts about food interfere with your relationships and connecting to joy in your life, this is called food preoccupation. A restrictive mindset (and/or actual food restriction) often goes hand-in-hand with food preoccupation, leading to particular foods becoming "charged" and transformed into binge foods. Non-judgmental observation of the thoughts and feelings you have around your daily food choices and interactions with food is an important first step in neutralizing food and healing your relationship with these "charged" foods. If possible, seek out a registered dietitian who specializes in disordered eating. Avoid dietitians that label foods "good" or "bad" or prescribe limitations of foods. Healing from food preoccupation means leaning into your own internal cues and not relying on external methods for food choices. Your body does not need to be fixed. Our culture is what is broken.

Very helpful podcast!
I have struggled for over 40 years with disordered eating. This podcast has been a balm, a salve for my soul. I am new to intuitive eating but have embraced HAES for about 2 years when I finally gave up dieting. Julie is kind, compassionate and encouraging. You will be amazed at the number of letter writers that write things that could have come out of your own brain.

Helpful in a time of need
This was the first time I listen to a podcast. I had a long stretch of pretty calm eating, along with weight loss. But now I'm sliding back into sweets and pounds. I searched for "mindful eating" after an emotional eating weekend. This one came up, and was really helpful with getting me in touch with something behind the eating. Much appreciated!

I have a difficult relationship with food and I find it easier to get under those layers or "untangle the Christmas Lights" as I listen to the episodes. I can relate to nearly every letter writer, and I'm sure you can too.
