A survey conducted in 2008 of American women between ages 25-45 suggested that 65% had behavioral issues regarding food intake.
I think that’s conservative because out of all the women I know personally, I can only say that one has never “been on a diet” or had any issues with food intake or body image. Only one.
Sadly most women know all too well what it means to “go on a diet”, and many develop disordered or binge eating habits as a result.
If you’ve ever been on a diet, obsessed over food, spent more time than necessary planning your meals, or developed any other disordered or binge eating habits, (or you want to know how to eat in a simple, sustainable, healthy way!) then please listen to this episode of the Lift Like a Girl Podcast. I’m joined by nutrition coach and registered dietitian Georgie Fear and we discuss who is at risk of developing disordered or binge eating habits, and what to do if you’re struggling with them.
It’s my intention that this episode not only gives you hope, but simple and practical steps for breaking free.
Here are some of the resources discussed in the show.
The Power of Habit – this is a terrific book that explains why habits form, and what can be done to change them.
33 Ways to Break Free from Binge Eating – this is the book I wrote that explains in detail my personal experience with disordered and binge eating habits, and what I did to break free and ultimately become a stronger, more awesome version of myself.
