EP 56 - How it Feels to Find Food Freedom - Stacey's Story
Welcome to part 4 of this 5 part series about how to eat normally.
This week we’re chatting with Stacey who from her early teens until her late 30’s was either always on a diet or preparing for the next one. She shares how she thought that restricting food worked, because she’d always experience short term weight loss, but then would always give up and gain the weight back – and thought that SHE had failed.
When Stacey realized it wasn’t her fault, and that in fact 95% of diets don’t work long term, she knew there was no end to this vicious cycle of restriction. It wasn’t moving her closer to health- it was keeping her stuck in guilt and shame.
Listen as Stacey shares how she began the process of changing her relationship with food and how Intuitive Eating has transformed her life. Interestingly, when Stacey gave herself unconditional permission to eat, she felt less controlled by food and was able to move into a place of conscious, body respecting choices that help her feel and function her best.
