Words to Eat By with Karen Koenig

Losing 100 Pounds with Corinne

Word power, not willpower will help you lose weight. No more making ourselves do insane crap to lose weight. People ask me all the time, "What did you do to lose 100lbs?" I did a lot of things truth be told. But the things I did to lose weight would've never happened if I didn't ditch my asshole thinking around food like... You should be doing more (each day I walked for 15 minutes). This won't matter (when I was staring at a couple of chicken nuggets Logan didn't eat). You did OK today, hope you don't screw up tomorrow (instead of celebrating that I was showing up for myself). I know if I can teach you ONE THING and ONE THING only about weightloss it would be to change how you talk and think. Today's podcast is all about that. I interviewed Karen Koenig who is the author of some of my favorite books on becoming a normal eater. Her newest book "Words to Eat By" is a must-read! As Karen Koenig said in the podcast... "Self-talk is subtle but extremely powerful. It's the driver of how you show up." I totally agree and you hear me PREACH this ALL THE TIME. In the podcast we discuss: What to do when you first start listening to how you talk (because there could be some shock and awe about what you hear). What a disregulated eater is and how they have an amazing talent for saying just the wrong thing to themselves at the times they need positivity the most. The purpose of shame and its evolutionary role (this might shock you). Why hooting and hollering is a GOOD for women and especially my Binge Eaters. I know you'll love this podcast.

Food and Feelings. How to Prevent or Curb Emotional Eating with Karen Koenig

The Healthy Family Podcast

From the moment we are born food and emotions are intertwined. We get fed milk while being held and enjoy connection at the family table. But as time marches on, food can all too easily be used as a way to distract us from difficult emotions or fill an emotional void. This results in dysregulated eating -- eating too much or too little, and spending way too much time thinking about food and weight. The problem is our quick-fix culture searches for answers by making up food rules, tightly controlling goodies, or to simply “thinking positive.” Our expert today says it takes both a mindful eating approach and tuning in to our emotions to get back to what she calls "normal eating." On episode 18 of The Healthy Family Podcast we have on Karen R. Koenig, LCSW, M.Ed., licensed psychotherapist specializing in the field of compulsive, emotional and restrictive eating. She is co-founder of the Greater Boston Collaborative for Body Image and Eating Disorders and a former member of the Professional Advisory Committee of the Multi-service Eating Disorder Association of Massachusetts. She is author of several books including The Rules of "Normal" Eating, Outsmarting Overeating and The Food and Feelings Workbook. She will forever change the way you see food and emotions, and that’s a good thing.
