Rank #1: Let your instincts run the show with Isabel Foxen Duke

Podcast cover
Read more

Isabel Foxen Duke is back on the podcast!

Isabel is a world renowned expert in emotional eating, binge eating and chronic-diet recovery. Having worked with thousands of women in her coaching practice and online programs over the past decade, Isabel’s proven that conventional treatment for binge eating is flawed at best—and offers a radical new approach for those who’ve “tried everything.”

We talk about:

  • dieting as a progressive problem
  • “sugar addiction” and whether it’s a real thing
  • how to navigate Christmas in a fatphobic world
  • the dangers of the “intuitive eating to lose weight” and the Christian “hunger and fulness” diets
  • how the belief of “failing” at mental health treatment programs causes trauma
  • mental health professionals hurting people who struggle with food
  • having way more than one rock bottom moment 
  • becoming comfortable with the entire range of hunger to fullness – all the way to feeling stuffed
  • beginning to experience fullness as something that happens to you
  • allowing your instincts to run the show
  • the problem with eating disorder treatment and weight classification
  • the question whether you are willing to gain weight in the name of recovery or not?! 
  • how yo-yo dieting impacts relationships and family constellations
  • arriving at  “relaxed around food”
  • remembering that eating disorders are anxiety disorders
  • food, sexuality and our sex-shaming culture
  • adding in food instead of taking it out
  • the importance of meals
  • the reality of eating disorders as a “family thing”
  • creating verbal boundaries
  • and so much more!

Rank #2: The Perceived Threat of Having a Body that is Ever-Changing

Podcast cover
Read more

Do you ever hear that voice inside your head that tells you you’re not doing it “right”, you should be going back to dieting, you should start exercising juuuust a little bit more and then a liiiiitle bit more and more?

Do you ever hear that judgy voice that threatens to throw you back into painful old habits that – back then – seemed oh so sane?

Do you ever feel oh so annoyed by that voice that just won’t shut up?

That judgy voice, the voice of the diet culture, of lives of the past, is one that doesn’t fade away as quickly as we’d like. It’s one that can bite you in the butt more often than you’d like but it’s also a voice that reminds you of how far you’ve already come.

Thoughts don’t change in an instant.

Beliefs don’t just transform in a heartbeat.

Decade old habits don’t just reorganize themselves by doing things differently once or twice.

Escaping diet prison can’t be done in a day.

It’s easy then to lose hope, give up and tell yourself that once again, you’re not cut out for a life free from body shame.

That couldn’t be further from the truth though and it’s imperative that you move forward despite that judgy voice that tells you otherwise.

Learning to trust in yourself and your body is like learning to walk: you’ll fall but you can always get back up.

In this episode of the Escape Diet Prison, Deb and I talk about that judgy voice and share our best tips and tricks to not let it discourage you from living your best life. Because – in the end – that is the goal, isn’t it?

Rank #3: Feeling insignificant, counting calories and bingeing at night

Podcast cover
Read more

If you’re still feeling insignificant, unworthy, less than or too much because of your body weight, it’s time to get to the bottom of what is really going on.

I get it, we are made to believe that our weight is the main element of who we are, it’s what makes or breaks our worthiness as human beings, it’s what makes us right or wrong.

But, obviously, that is complete and utter BS and nothing but a way to keep us women small and feeling like crap at all times.

The cool thing is that once you realize your weight is NOT who you are, you can begin to work on what is ACTUALLY making you feel so insignificant (if there STILL is a reason to uncover) and you can leave that shadow behind and instead step into the light.

You can embrace your body and your weight for what it is

and instead of wasting your life chasing a senseless dream, you can begin to build a life that will leave a legacy of meaning, rather than a number on a scale.

I give you some essential strategies on how remember your inherent and unshakeable significance in this week’s episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast.

I also talk about how to “un-learn” calorie counting and how to deal with the feeling of bingeing at night.

If you’d rather see the video than listen to the podcast, you can watch it here.

Rank #4: Why HAES works with Dr. Jennifer Gaudiani

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode of Escape Diet Prison, I am joined by Dr. Jennifer Gaudiani, the Founder and Medical Director of the the Gaudiani Clinic. The Gaudiani Clinic is a unique outpatient medical clinic specifically dedicated to adolescents and adults with eating disorders or a history of an eating disorder, of all shapes and sizes.

As one of the only outpatient internists in the United States who carries the credential Certified Eating Disorder Specialist (CEDS) and Fellow in the Academy for Eating Disorders (FAED), she is passionate about the medical care of adolescents and adults who have a complicated relationship with food and their body.

Board Certified in Internal Medicine, she completed her undergraduate degree at Harvard, medical school at Boston University School of Medicine, and her internal medicine residency and chief residency at Yale, where she won numerous clinical awards. Dr. Gaudiani moved to Denver in 2007, choosing Colorado with her husband because its emphasis on the outdoors, the incorporation of nature into daily life, and the importance of family activity time as it offered a great way to foster work-life balance.

In 2008, she was one of the founding team members of the ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders at Denver Health. After seven great years there, she left as its Medical Director to pursue her vision of outpatient care, founding the Gaudiani Clinic. During her years at ACUTE, Dr. Gaudiani became a nationally recognized internist for her work on the medical complications of eating disorders. Dr. Gaudiani’s book, Sick Enough: A Guide to the Medical Complications of Eating Disorders, was released in October 2018.

She has lectured nationally and internationally and is widely published in the scientific literature as well as on blogs. She is a current member of the editorial board of the International Journal of Eating Disorders and and the Academy for Eating Disorders Medical Care Standards Committee and is a former board member of iaedp (International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals).

Dr. Gaudiani is one of the only outpatient internists in the US who carries the Certified Eating Disorder Specialist designation and has received the honorable designation of Fellow from the international organization Academy for Eating Disorders. In founding the Gaudiani Clinic, she has established a nationally unique outpatient medical setting, not dictated by restraints on visit time or insurance rules, where strong, supportive, and healing relationships with patients help them achieve wellness while remaining in their communities. Through lectures and consulting work, she continues to improve the quality of medical care for patients with eating disorders in treatment programs around the country.

Check out Dr. Gaudiani’s book Sick Enough.

We talk about:

  • Dr. Gaudiani’s motivation for working with those struggling with eating disorders
  • Her own relationship with food and her body and how this affects her work
  • The false ideology that there’s a relationship between our weight and our worthiness
  • The fact that recovery is possible but complicated and that it often takes a village
  • The truth that every single wonderful human has their own story and their own unique desires and fears that must be taken into consideration during treatment
  • How individuals are being harmed by the medical system
  • Weight-inclusive healthcare
  • How the brain tries to save us from starvation
  • Why she would never prescribe weight loss
  • Why and how HAES works medically
  • Why and how diet culture doesn’t work
  • The study that suggests that cardiovascular death and cancer death are significantly elevated over time in patients’ following a very low carb diet
  • What to do when you feel like you absolutely cannot accept your body and still hold on to needing to lose weight
  • Why you cannot fight the genetics of your body
  • Dr. Gaudiani’s book “Sick Enough: A Guide to the Medical Complications of Eating Disorders
  • How to stop being scared of sugar or other foods you demonized
  • Intuitive Eating
  • Why anything else is healthier than restriction
  • Working with allergies, IBS and more
  • How we can do better for the next generation
  • and so much more!

Rank #5: Self-Care Strategies for the Holiday Season

Podcast cover
Read more

The Holiday Season is here.

The Christmas music is all around, cookies are being baked, holiday parties are being planned, the pressure to create the perfect holiday is rising.

For some, the holidays are the most beautiful time of the year, for others – especially those who are fighting with their weight and their relationship with food, the holidays are a time full of triggers, shame and guilt.

There is SO MUCH to do, SO MANY parties to attend, SO MUCH temptation that feels oh so overwhelming and SO MANY reasons to freak out.

It’s sooo easy to reach for perfection during this time.

However, the more perfect you try to be, the more likely it is that you’ll snap.

Food fears, restriction, too much exercise and a series of binge attacks is almost guaranteed when you don’t allow for imperfection and don’t make your self-care a priority on your Christmas to-do list.

What about your self-care tools?

Even if you feel it might be too early, now’s the time to prepare and create self-care strategies that you can benefit from in the weeks to come.

Now’s the time to take note of your triggers and ask yourself what makes you want to go on a diet, restrict, binge or run away? What are the situations, the words, the memes or the bodies you see that trigger current or old eating destructive eating behaviors?

Now’s the time to DO. THE. WORK. and to use your tools heavily.

Be open to change and implement the self-care strategies that we share in this episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast and beyond.

Rank #6: How to Feel Your Fullness

Podcast cover
Read more

From the very beginning of following a diet, you begin to distrust your internal cues for hunger and fullness.

You lose that natural and completely easy connection to some of your body’s most instinctive processes by beginning to rely on external sources telling you when, how much and what to eat.

The longer you diet the more you begin to shame your body for even “speaking up” when she needs you to nourish her and actually giving her what she’s asking for is totally out of the question.

And once you’re ready to break that abusive way of living, you often realize that you’ve forgotten what it’s like to feel hunger, respond to hunger in an appropriate way (aka. eating) and when it’s time for you to stop.

Of course, there’s never the perfect moment (ever!) to put the fork down, but your body does send you signals letting you when you’ve had enough.

You can re-learn to honor your body’s satiety signals by simply paying attention to your body again. You can stop – easily – when you’ve had enough to eat, even if you’ve been dieting for decades.

I know that that’s a scary process for many dieters who feel like they can either restrict or have a full-on binge and that’s why we talk about feeling your fullness in this week’s episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast.

Hunger is super natural and no matter your weight, you are allowed to meet your body’s needs for nourishment – without shame, without guilt, without worrying about what it will do to your body shape.

You get to eat what you crave! In fact, you have to if you want to live your life instead of living your diet.

Listen to this episode to find out how you can respect your body and your fullness again.

Rank #7: It’s Impossible to Binge If…

Podcast cover
Read more

you’re not in a stress response.

Meaning if you’re super relaxed and blissed out, you can’t binge.

Let me elaborate.

There was a time when I couldn’t stop eating, when I literally ate from dusk til dawn. And I ate everything, EVERY THING, I saw. It was like there was a huge hole in my belly and I just couldn’t fill it.

It was a time that I don’t often talk about since it was short and so different than most of my youth.

But it was definitely a formative time.

During this time, I was always, always stressed. Not because I had so much going on in my life, but because I had so much going on in my internal life. I didn’t know who I was, I didn’t know what I wanted, I didn’t know anything.

I was lost.

This internal turmoil reflected my behavior big time.

I was stressed and thus, I binged.

You see, when we’re stressed the sympathetic nervous system – our survival instinct – is active. When we’re in sympathetic nervous system dominance, all of our blood, all of our energy goes into our extremities in order for us to run away from the big lion chasing us.

Thus, our brain doesn’t notice we’re eating, it doesn’t digest and the gut doesn’t let our brain know that we’re actually full and satisfied.

If it did, we’d stop or we’d have to eat by mere willpower to go against ourselves.

That being said, the more we can relax, be and breathe, the more we can begin to step into the relaxation response.

That’s how my binging stopped. I began to move towards joy and peace and I got my life back one day at a time. The more I was in a state of flow, the less I needed food to make me happy and to take off the edge.

It’s a process for sure, but with every step, you gain more life and you lose a lot of painful evenings hunched over a bucket of ice-cream or two super sized pizzas.

If you don’t believe me, try it for yourself. Here are a few tricks you can implement to move into a state of relaxation and ease.

Laugh

Laughter lowers levels of stress hormones, reduces inflammation in the arteries, and increases “good” HDL cholesterol. And it obviously activates the parasympathetic nervous system, helping you to feel good and release stress.

Get rid of stuff

If we have too much stuff in our lives, our minds get cluttered with unnecessary stress. I’ve found that the less stuff I own, the less distracted and overwhelmed I get.

So, take a look around: what can you easily get rid of? What do you never touch? What do you obviously don’t need?

Toss it!

Take power naps

I’m not a napper, but I’ve learned that a power nap here and there helps to reduce extreme stress and fatigue, which is one of the main causes for nightly binges.

Schedule in that power nap a few times a week and see how it changes your mood and uplifts your mind.

Clear your schedule

Yup, we live in a busy world and we measure our self-worth by how many items we have on our to-do list, how much achieve and get done every day, but if you want to have a balanced relationship with food, clear your schedule and do nothing for a while.

Seek joy

If your life sucks, your eating behaviors will suck. If you’re not happy, you won’t stop binging and expressing your feelings with destructive habits.

You’ve got to change your life (often in massive ways) in order to break free and cut the cords to your binges.

Unplug

No phone, no TV, no Facebook, no Instagram, no Pinterest, no Internet, period.

If you’re constantly plugged in, it’s impossible to escape stress. Escape the world by consciously choosing to stay offline for a couple of hours a week or more.

Ready to kick that binge monster to the curve once and for all and finally BREAK OUT of the prison you’ve (willingly) locked yourself in?

 
I am offering BRAND freaking NEW Intake Sessions where we get to the bottom of what is keeping you in binge-mode and removed from life so much that you just can’t stop the eating once you’ve begun. We’ll go DEEP and we’ll get far.
Hit me up on Facebook or write an email to anne-sophie@annesophie.us and we’ll schedule that intake to take you to the level you truly want to be – in life, when it comes to food, your body image and MORE.

Rank #8: She’s Really Let Herself Go & Other BS

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast, I talk about the concept of letting yourself go and the shame that comes with gaining weight when giving up dieting and beginning to eat more intuitively.

When we begin to understand that dieting is a concept that was manufactured to keep us women “in line” and small, we can liberate ourselves from the chains that keep us stuck in counting calories and fat grams.

We can slowly move into an understanding of our own power

and the truth that life can – and should – be fun, which it isn’t when you are always dizzy from hunger or exhausted from an inhumane workout regime.

Once you realize and truly get in your cells that your value as a person, as a woman, as a mother, wife, friend, boss, client, co-worker, daughter, sister, aunt, or whatever else you consider yourself to be does not lie in your weight and shape, you will be free.

You’ll feel it, you’ll see it, you’ll hear it and you’ll taste it – the freedom to suddenly be who you’ve always wanted to be; anyone far beyond the limits of that hyped up lifestyle diet.

So yeah, let yourself go. Set yourself free. Grab the opportunity to leave all weight loss schemes behind and focus on your true power instead.

Listen to this episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast or watch the video here.

Let’s escape diet prison together. Book your 30-minute Breakthrough Session and begin choosing yourself over and over and over again. No more body hatred. No more obsession with being thin. No more pain. You can turn it around. Starting now.

Rank #12: Speaking Up To Your Inner Mean Girl and Coping Without Abusing Food

Podcast cover
Read more

What’s your inner mean girl saying to you right now?

Is she yelling at you, telling you that you’re not good enough, not pretty enough, not healthy/skinny/perfect enough?

Is she telling you that you need to be more disciplined, more strict, even harder on yourself?

Is this inner critic telling you that everyone around you is better than you are and that you’ll really never ever measure up?

Our inner mean girl bullies us more than most of us have ever been bullied by others. And yet, we always choose to listen, choose to believe what this angry/hurt/sad voice is telling us.

You are not your thoughts!

It can feel hard to disconnect from that voice and begin to choose to see yourself in a more joyful, lighter way. But the truth is that you are not your thoughts and that you have the power to take a step back and look at your thoughts as the never-ending tape they really are.

In this episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast, we talk about this nasty inner voice and we share tools that’ll help you to embrace your more loving, more generous, more compassionate voice. We also share coping strategies that are not related to food, but can still help you to ease the pain that you may feel inside.

Rank #13: Sacrifices and Breaking Free from Your Obsession with Food

Podcast cover
Read more

I’ve been thinking about the connection between breaking free from an obsession with food and being willing to make sacrifices.

I have this belief that you can have absolutely everything in life that you truly want to have.

If others can have it, why not you, right?

You can have a yummy relationship with your body.
You can be completely free around food.
You can have so much fun in your daily life.
You can have a soul-nourishing relationship with your soulmate.
You can have a circle of friends that feels like family.

You can have it all.

Of course.

AND you also have to make sacrifices to get there.

Of course.

Sacrifices in the form of un-learning painful beliefs, un-knowing long-held “truths”, digging deep and going where you have been scared to go for decades.

Sacrifices in the form of doing the inner work.

But also sacrifices in the form of time, money, resources, sometimes even comfort.

The level of healing, the level of freedom you’ll achieve directly correlates with your willingness to make these sacrifices.

That’s a tough one to hear, isn’t it?

Especially since most of us are still secretly searching for the quick fixes.
The quick and easy road to weight loss.
The super fast track to freedom from food.
The 2-minute a day magical pill to loving your body.

You’ve been avoiding all the sacrifices, haven’t you?

If you’re really honest with yourself, you aren’t ready to let go of comfort and step into healing, to stop making excuses and start taking action, are you?

Be honest, but without shaming yourself, without beating yourself up, without getting angry and feeling even more guilty than you already do.

You really do feel like you’re not ready to sacrifice what you’ve got going on right now in order to get what you really want.

And I get it.

But I also know what happens when you finally do make the sacrifice and walk towards the uncomfortable, leaving the “easy” behind.

I could’ve bought a car (or two) with the money I invested in my healing.
I could’ve read a hundred novels in the time that I invested in my path to freedom.
I could’ve saved a million tears had I not chosen to go where it hurt.
I could’ve had it easier had I stayed the same.

And of course I was often scared shitless. Of course I was often jealous of my friends who got to buy cute clothes, new cars, tons of scented candles, jewellery and do all kinds of things I couldn’t afford.

I sacrificed.
But really, it wasn’t a sacrifice AT ALL.

It was the path I had to take in order to get to where I am today.
These were simply actions that were necessary for me to break the chains of my past, to let go of all that had been holding me down and then move into the here and now with confidence, self-love and a complete detachment from any moral around food.

And it feels GREAT to know that those “sacrifices” led me to a life beyond my wildest dreams.

I see it in here.
Those of you who are investing in themselves are those who are breaking free.
Those who are allowing their fears to hold them back, stay stuck.

It’s your fear, of course, that’s keeping you stuck.
It’s also our culture that tells us that you deserve everything NOW.

And you do.
But could you handle all the good now?
With all your fears?
With all your restrictions?
With all your unresolved emotional pain?

Probably not.

And you know that.

That’s why you continue to waste money on programs that promise you a quick fix –
you know deep down that you’re sabotaging yourself and that is what you want, what a part of you wants, because you’re unwilling to heal, you’re unwilling to get the good stuff –

out of a deep fear
and the belief that you don’t deserve it anyway.

But you do.
Oh how you do.

You deserve the greatness that life has to offer.

And you have to get to a point where you can actually allow yourself to receive the magnificence that is waiting for you.

You won’t get there by lying to yourself.
You won’t get there by looking for the quick fixes.
And you won’t get there if you turn around and walk the other way every time it gets hard.

So, make some time today to journal on how you are unwilling to make sacrifices.

Are you continuously spending money on things you do not need instead of investing in your healing?
Are you saying that you don’t have the time for what really matters but then sit in front of the TV for entire afternoons?
Are you consciously refusing to journal/think about/meditate on what’s really going on?
Are you still yearning for the super quick fix that’ll save you and turn your life around?

Call yourself out – lovingly and gently – on how you’re avoiding true freedom and true healing.

And then ask yourself: what am I willing to do about it?

Sweetness, you deserve a life that is about more than food and your body but you also have to be willing to face your fears and limiting beliefs and go GET that life. <3

Speaking of deserving, I have something uber cool for you: an idea that came to me and that hasn’t allowed me to think about anything else because I know in my heart of hearts that this is the shift you need in order to surrender to true body-acceptance.

Rank #20: Why just “thinking” about eating healthy may make you binge

Podcast cover
Read more

When you are devoted to escape diet prison and you’ve been on this path for a while, there may come the day you feel like “now’s the time to eat healthy again”. 

Or maybe you just heard something a friend said and you felt pressured to “go back to eating healthy again”.

OR you’ve seen a fitspiration post and all hell broke loose inside your “still kinda wanna diet and lose weight” focused mind. 

Whatever the cause, the force these thoughts have on your psyche and your life is tremendous and can lead you right back into the dieting/binge cycle that you are so desperately trying to escape. 

So, what can you do about it? How can you allow yourself to go back “eating healthy” without it feeling like just another diet. AND do you even have to? 

That’s what I discuss in this weeks’ episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast. 

There are many different ways of approaching the “eating healthy” issue within your healing journey without it turning into just another big diet-related mess. And the way to get to this point of peace of mind might be entirely different than you think or even want. 

Curious? Then go ahead and listen to the episode and/or think/meditate/journal about the following questions:

  1. Why do you believe you have to eat healthy?
  2. What does eating healthy even mean to you?
  3. Where does the pressure to eat healthy come from?
  4. Have you given up your diet culture beliefs or are you still cradling them lovingly?
  5. Where is food not neutral for you just yet?
  6. Have you addressed your traumas? Have you healed the wounds that dieting has left in your life?
  7. Is this question of wanting to eat healthier just another way of wanting to control your body and cheating yourself into abusing food?

P.S. Did you know: When you journal, magic ensues.

Of course you did. 

It happens because you allow your subconscious to surface and help you to heal what needs to be healed (and that is rarely our weight and our “issues” with food). When you put a pen to paper, you begin to unravel and open doors that remained closed for decades; doors that are waiting to finally bust open.

You begin to hear yourself, feel yourself and trust yourself more and more.

Your self-confidence strengthens, the bar on your bullshit barometer increases and you begin to be yourself, truly, fully yourself no matter how other people react to you showing up as the person you are.
