Rank #2: (Over-)Eating is Not a Problem with Isabel Foxen Duke

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast, I am joined by Isabel Foxen Duke who helps women stop feeling crazy around food.

Isabel has one of the most distinct voices in the realm of emotional eating, bingeing, dieting and the obsession around food and our bodies. I love her authenticity and her no Bullshit approach and am thrilled to share this conversation with you.

We talk about:

  • Isabel’s struggle with food and how she basically doesn’t have a memory of not feeling like her body was a problem she needed to fix
  • Never questioning the “truth” that you constantly need to control food and your body or all hell will break loose
  • How your desperate search for the magic secret that’ll make you permanently thin and loved can take over your life
  • The extreme feelings of shame and failure that dieting/binge eating brings about
  • The danger of the messages and controlling behavior in eating disorder and diet recovery
  • The Hunger/Fullness Diet
  • Isabel’s turning point: the moment she realized that you just cannot control your food and that that is totally fine (gasp!)
  • The moment real recovery actually begins!
  • The importance of body-acceptance and what acceptance actually is
  • How long-term weight suppression is harming your body
  • How to accept your body when you’re in a larger body (even in a world of weight bias and fat phobia)
  • Weight and Health and the fact that dieting is never a safe treatment option for any condition
  • The concept of Binge Eating as a construct that can only exist in a diet-obsessed world
  • What normal eating actually is
  • and so much more!

Check out Isabel’s free video series on how to stop feeling crazy around food.

Drawing on personal life events associated with bulimia and binge eating, Lina empowers individuals to live a life led by self-awareness and freedom of choice. Lina’s teachings result from the mindset shift that began her recovery after two decades of failed therapy sessions, Prozac prescriptions, hypnosis, and even meeting a monk.

Lina has a JD and holds two MPAs (Master of Public Administration), from Sciences Po in Paris and Columbia University in New York. In line with her passion with real food and sustainability, Lina is a Board Member at Community Foodworks, a non-profit based in D.C.

We talk about:

  • Lina’s relationship with food growing up
  • why she says she enjoyed being in diet prison as a young girl
  • how your motivation behind your actions changes when you are in the process of healing your relationship with food
  • the beauty obsession in Colombia
  • how the messages about our bodies impact us in our childhood and beyond
  • Lina’s obsessive relationships with men and how they affected her connection to her weight
  • how our disordered relationship with food isolates and embitters us
  • how to start a lasting meditation practice
  • Get Some Headspace: 10 Minutes Can Make All the Difference byAndy Puddicombe (Affiliate Link)
  • how perfectionism gets in the way of healing
  • Check out my meditation album: Finally Free – Guided Meditations for Freedom from Emotional Eating
  • how Lina dealt with her fears when challenging her comfort zone
  • the importance of the right community
  • how to figure out who you are beyond your body
  • re-gaining the freedom of choice

Rank #5: 55 Quick Tips to Start Your Self-Care Practice

Podcast cover
Read more

Do you have a romance with yourself?

Do you think you can? 

I’m going to answer this for you and say that yes, you absolutely can and it’s much easier than you may think. You just have to know the not-so-secret-anymore-but-still-extremely-effective formula.

Self-care.

Practicing self-care and self-love has become an essential part of my life and it has helped me stay upbeat and true to myself despite all the setbacks and obstacles life has thrown my way. It never ceases to amaze me how grounding and rewarding a few simple habits of self-care can be. I’ve never felt so at peace with myself and my life and it gets better every single day.

Self-care helps in many challenging situations, but it’s the most effective when you practice it regularly. The more often you actively love yourself the more intuitive and powerful these self-care tools get. You’ll be able to let go of stress, anger, frustration, fear, resentment and the nagging feeling of unworthiness. You’ll cherish your body and listen to your needs. You’ll declutter your mind and embrace life as it is now.

You’ll be so much more balanced and free. And, yes, you’ll also love yourself for the brilliant person you are.

Developing a nurturing self-care is super easy and fun to do. It’s best to experiment a bit to figure out what feels right for you. But if you’re struggling to get started, here are 55 quick tips for you. 

You can try them all, pick the ones that speak to you and adapt them to your liking.

1. Go complaint free for at least a day

This’ll free your mind of negative thoughts and it’ll instantly improve your mood.

2. Get sweatin’

Being physically active nurtures your well-being and your inner balance.

3. Do something badly and be proud of it

Screw up and smile.

4. Script

Free flow write in a journal and see what comes out of your mind. No judgement!

5. Have a romantic candle light dinner with yourself

Go all out and treat yourself to delicious delicatessen, champagne and classical music.

6. Kiss your reflection in the mirror

Give yourself a big smooch.

7. Unfriend annoying people on Facebook

You don’t need people who pull you down. Just click the button and you’ll see how free you’ll feel.

8. Educate yourself

Quench your curiosity by learning something new.

9. Watch “The Notebook” or “My Best Friend’s Wedding”

Make yourself some popcorn and maybe invite a friend.

10. Say goodbye to false beliefs about yourself, money and love

What beliefs are you holding on to and do they hold any truth? Dig deep.

11. Practice Hoʻoponopono

This powerful ancient Hawaiian practice of self-forgiveness is so powerful when you repeat it often. It’s helped me to deal with all the recent changes in my life.

12. Smile

Smiling is the best way to brighten your mood, especially on a grim day.

13. Reawaken your self-love

Give yourself the time to really dive into your self-care practice.

14. Feel the grass tickling your naked feet

This’ll ground you. Literally.

15. Draw a picture of your inner child

Relax, breathe and then let your hands show you the way. You’ll learn a lot about yourself and your needs if you can let go of thoughts like “I’m not good enough” when painting.

16. Feel the beauty that surrounds you

Tune in to the wonderful people in your life, the gorgeous flowers in your garden, the breathtaking view of the mountains or the clear water of a lake.

17. Unplug for a few days

This’ll quiet the noises of “not good enough”, “not pretty enough” or “not skinny enough”.

18. Describe yourself in 5 words

Fun, loving, ambitious, witty, shy?

19. Subscribe to inspiring blogs 

Reading a positive message every single day will give you a lot of perspective on yourself and life.

20. Tap into your intuition

Let your gut guide you for a change.

21. Breathe deeply

Whenever you’re stressed or tense, breathe deeply and consciously.

22. Discover your roots

Do you know about your family’s history? Now is the time to find out.

23. Talk to your grandparents or other wise mentors

It’s so rewarding to hear the point of view of people who have experienced life in completely different ways than you have. Listen and soak up their wisdom.

24. Cry

Release your emotions. It’s OK to be sad, feel lonely or hurt. Embrace those feelings as part of you.

25. Negate every negative thought with an empowering one

Soon your mind will automatically go to the positive thought. Just think how awesome it will be once you’ve gotten rid of all the negativity.

26. Get lost in doing a puzzle

One of my favorite self-care practices.

27. Pamper yourself (soak in a hot both, reward yourself with a relaxing face massage, get a new haircut or get a manicure and pedicure)

Don’t shy away from spending time and/or money on yourself. You deserve it.

28. Jump in piles of leaves

Have fun!

29. Delight in little things

Enjoy the sun on your face, the taste of chocolate on your tongue, the excitement in a loved one’s voice or the laughter of a child.

30. Create a vision board

Get creative. Use images you’ve found in magazines, pictures you’ve taken yourself, glitter and lots of color.

31. Sing Karaoke

Dare to be silly and not in control.

32. See a ballet

And admire the grace of the dancers.

33. Let go of the past

Holding on to it only hurts your health and your soul.

34. Hug yourself

Show yourself some love.

35. Read “The Gifts of Imperfection” by Brene Brown or “You Can Heal Your Life” By Louise L. Hay

Eye-opening and inspiring books.

36. Go through pictures of your last vacation and indulge in memories

This always energizes me.

37. Tell yourself that you’re truly scrumptious

Because you are.

38. Be your own best friend

Rely on yourself, trust yourself, love yourself.

39. Care

Care about yourself, others and the world.

40. Open your hips with Yoga 

This’ll help you to relieve stress and anxiety.

41. Show compassion towards yourself

Stop going after perfection and instead embrace fulfillment.

42. Take a break from self-improvement

Just be lazy and relax.

43. Play revenge on someone (but only in your mind)

This exercise helps tremendously when you have trouble letting go of the past.

44. Spend time with your pet

Just play for a while.

45. Indulge in your favorite guilty pleasure

C’mon, we all have some.

46. Close your eyes for a few minutes

Whenever you feel overwhelmed or need a few minutes to just breathe, close your eyes and notice your breath.

47. Sigh deeply

This is super invigorating.

48. Stop dieting

Diets only hurt your self-confidence. There’s nothing wrong with who you are, don’t let diets tell you so.

49. Join the The Ultimate Guide to a Healthy Body Image Read-Along 

It’s fun and it’ll boost your body image.

50. Walk around nakedly (at home, of course)

This’ll deepen the relationship you have with your body.

 51. Create boundaries

Say “no” to others more often and thereby “yes” to yourself.

 52. Sleep in

Oh, sleep is so important for your well-being. Sleep in every once in a while.

53. Look up to the sky and feel the power of the universe

You’re part of it all. Do you feel it?

54. Tell your loved ones how much you love them

Write a letter if you can’t say it out loud.

55. Tell yourself how much you love yourself every single day

If you can’t believe it just yet, you soon will. You have to be willing to change though.

I want to hear from you. Have you given self-care a try? What are your favorite ways to practice self-care?

Ready to change your life? Book a 30-minute complimentary Discovery Call with me to see how I can help you turn that body-hatred into freedom and love.

Rank #6: This is What Happens When You Allow Yourself To Eat All Foods

Podcast cover
Read more

“All I want to eat at all times are all the things I am not allowed to eat.”

“I am just not one of those people who likes to eat the “healthy” foods.”

“Of course, there are good foods and bad foods. Are you kidding me?”

“Food IS totally moral and I can never get it right.”

“I always have to watch out, otherwise I’d never stop eating all the foods I shouldn’t eat.”

And on and on and on we go.

One judgmental thought chasing the other. We hear these comments everywhere, we think them, we feel them, we live by them,.

We believe we know these food judgments to be true, don’t we?

And because we believe them with every fiber of our beings, we act accordingly. We feel guilty and ashamed for eating “pleasure foods”. We hate on ourselves for having “broken our diets”.

And, of course, we get obsessed with the exact nutrient contents of a single item of food and we live in extreme fear of doing it wrong.

Of messing it up, which we always end up doing, because, hey, there are too many rules to ever comply with all of them.

These fears create the obsession with a certain food group.

They create the feeling of needing to “cheat(which you don’t ever have to because you can have all foods at all times, unless you have an allergy or have other medical reasons), which is always followed by a spiral of shame.

These fears, rules and lies keep you from experiencing food in all its glorious forms and they certainly keep you from having the revelation I share in this recording.

Curious what I’m talking about? Then listen to this episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast or watch the video here.

Rank #7: 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 #8: Why You Should Never Diet Again with Traci Mann

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast, I am joined by professor and author Traci Mann.

Traci is a Professor of Social and Health Psychology at the University of Minnesota. Her research aims to identify and understand the behaviors associated with eating regulation and body image as well as the process of self-control during health behavior changes.

Traci is principal investigator of the Health and Eating Laboratory, which uses diverse research methods to study interesting topics such as increasing food consumption in NASA astronauts, increasing vegetable intake in elementary school children, and the ability of foods to reduce social and physical pain.

She is also the author of the book, Secrets from the Eating Lab.

We talk about:

  • Traci’s journey to researching “food regulation” and body image
  • What blew her mind when she learned about the real science of weight loss
  • Her experience with dieting
  • The myth of willpower
  • Why doctors still prescribe weight loss
  • What to do instead of dieting
  • The many reasons why lasting weight loss does not work
  • and so much more.

 When you journal, magic ensues. 

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

Rank #9: [REPLAY] Emotional Eating, Bingeing and “Healthy” Eating

Podcast cover
Read more

When healthy eating meets emotional eating or even bingeing, all hell breaks lose.

After all, emotional eating is the WORST, isn’t it?

One is never supposed to eat emotionally. Where’s the control in that? Where’s the healthy in that? Where’s the diet in that?

But what if emotional eating was normal, the thing to do, totally, utterly healthy?

And what if the need to eat healthy ALL THE TIME actually caused you to eat out of control? Which, to be clear, is NOT emotional eating, but a bingeing experience.

What if all our talk of being what we eat is the reason you eat until you feel sick?

These are just some of the questions that Deb and I answer in the latest episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast. Deb and I share our experiences with Emotional Eating, Healthy Eating and Bingeing and why one of those three is more dangerous than the others. We also talk about fat shaming, stigma and why children need to be our role models.

Your relationship with your body and with food can change!

You might be thinking that your situation is hopeless, that you’ll always have to fight your body, log calories, exercise your body to the ground, stay hungry and unsatisfied.

You might be thinking that you’re the exception, that you’re different than those who did break free.

However, those thoughts aren’t true.

Your relationship with food and your body can change. It will change if you take the right steps, if you learn the right skills and if you transform your mindset – lovingly, of course.

It might not happen overnight, but it can happen for sure.

Check out Deb’s new blog “We are more than good enough” here.

Rank #10: Can you respect your vulnerabilities?

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast, I talk about the importance of knowing and respecting your vulnerabilities in the process of healing your broken relationship with food and your body.

These vulnerabilities can present themselves in many shapes and forms and they often become obstacles on the way to regaining your freedom from dieting and weight obsession.

The moment you begin to embrace your vulnerable side and the parts of you that just don’t work perfectly all the time (let’s be honest, which part of us is ever working perfectly? Although, really, all of our parts always work perfectly in synch and in harmony with each other. But I digress), you are able to overcome any challenge you meet on the road to regaining your sanity.

There is something stunningly beautiful about recognizing that the feeling of being “exposed”, of being seen for who you really are – with all your imperfections – provides the foundation upon which you can build your new life, a life that is full of joy, fun and the knowing that you do not have to justify what you eat, when you eat and how much you eat – to anyone. Ever.

Learning to respect your vulnerabilities is a truly epic process and girl, you are in for a ride.

Rank #11: Why do you want to be thin?

Podcast cover
Read more

Why do you want to be thin?
Have you ever truly asked yourself?
Or is it just a default thing you want –
you’ve always wanted?

Why do you need to be thin?
Have you ever truly known?
Or is it just something that’s been on your mind –
a pressure you cannot shake loose?

Why is this desire to have the perfect body ruling every area of your life?

Do you even know?
Or are you just living your life on autopilot –
because it’s what “you do”?

Of course, most of us have a reason for our desperate desire to be thin.
We claim that it’s because of health reasons – when we know that being thin doesn’t make you healthy.
We say it’s because we’d feel better – when studies show that the initial boost of happiness after weight loss doesn’t last.
We then admit that it’s because we want to look great, want to stop the shaming that we experience, want to finally be proud of our bodies – as if that needed a specific number or reaching a fitness goal.

In reality, there are way, way deeper reasons for our desire to want to be thin – to hold on to our fight with ourselves.

We don’t want to feel.

We don’t want to see the reality that’s right in front of our eyes.
We don’t want to deal with life.

With our relationships.
With our careers.
With our money issues.
With our lack of self-esteem.

Using the need to be thin as a scapegoat is a great way of never ever truly confronting your real “construction sites” in life.

And it’s OK –
if you want to stay stuck.

It’s OK –
if you want to stay in pain.

It’s OK –
if you want to keep your world super small.

Well, of course it’s not OK.

Because you are so much more.
You have an entire universe of unfulfilled dreams inside of you.
An ocean of feelings that aren’t being expressed.
A heart full of love that isn’t being unleashed.

It’s not OK.
Because you are keeping your true Self from yourself and from the world.

It’s not OK.
Because you blame everything and everyone for your wounded heart.

It’s not OK.
Because you are. not. happy.

Or are you?

I know, I know.

You are being bullied.
You get the looks all the time.
You are being torn apart.

And that sucks.

It is unacceptable.

But you don’t have to play along.
You don’t have to play the victim.
You don’t have to sink to their lows.

You can choose to be the bigger person –
the wiser person.
The one that knows what really matters.

You can say thank you for teaching me the important lessons and move on.

You don not have to play the “thin is everything” game.

Even if you’re scared to death.
Even if you think that being thin will solve all of your problems.
Even if you are so effin’ sick and tired of hearing all the BS about how you’re too fat, how you’re unhealthy, how you’re not enough.

You can choose to opt out.
Of this sick, sick game.

You can choose to not be hurt anymore when people demean you.
You can choose to see their own pain and fear in their comments.
You can choose to be angry and rage, without turning on yourself.

You can choose to be who you are –
without apologizing for your body, for your fat, for your rolls, your cellulite, your wiggling skin.

So, why do you want to be thin?
Because it’ll make your life easier?

Will it?
How do you know?

Has it ever made anything easier?
Has it ever made solved only a single one of life’s challenges?

It hasn’t for me.
It hasn’t for my clients.

It only happens on TV.
In magazines.
In the movies.

In reality, we’re not that shallow.

Being thin doesn’t bring you eternal bliss.
Being thing doesn’t cause every person in this world to suddenly fall deeply in love with you.

Being thin might give you the admiration of strangers on the street, but is what does that give you, I ask?
I mean, what will that do for the quality of your life?

Will that really make you sleep soundly at night?
And wake up with a smile?

Wouldn’t it be so so SO much more awesome if you could wake up happy and excited being who you are instead of having to force your body into a size it just isn’t meant to fit in?

Don’t you want to be yourself?
Live in ease?
Not on a diet?

Don’t you want to be spontaneous?
Go on a weekend trip without calculating how many hours of exercise you’ll miss?

Don’t you want to be free?
Go on vacations without needing to lose 20 pounds before you can even book the trip? Every damn time?

Don’t you want to be the master of your own life?

Instead of allowing other people’s comments to tear you apart?

What if you choose to hold on to their looks, their behavior in order to not have to change?

What if you choose to hold on to the need to be thin in order to not have to feel how much it hurts and then move on?

What if you choose to hold onto your diets because you are terrified of the hell that’s about to break loose in your life?

What if you let go and your entire world would change?
Would that be really so bad?

Would it be so so bad to change jobs?
To leave that abusive guy?
To finally get serious about your financial situation?

Would it be so so so bad to break your heart in order to heal it properly?
To cry, to feel, to wail, to rage until you fall asleep?
To dare yourself to do things you’ve always wanted to do –
but couldn’t because you weren’t thin enough?

Would it be so bad?

So, I ask you –
why do you want to be thin?

Why do you want to continue to live in misery?
Why are you so willing to cause yourself all this pain?

And why do you choose to chase a dream that really, in all its glory, is not yours?
Doesn’t it hurt?

Aren’t you ready to surrender-
and choose the road less traveled?

To be the trailblazer?
To allow yourself to love yourself from the inside out?
From the outside in?
And in between?

You do know what you’re doing.
You do know that this will not lead to happiness.
You do know that something has to change.

You do know that the time to do something is NOW.

Ready? Take the leap of faith and book your coaching package with me now.
It’s time to stop wanting to be THIN and start wanting to be FREE.

You have what it takes to turn this around.
You have what it takes to be surrender to your binges, to your overeating, to your constant restriction, to your fear of movement or your overexercising.

I see it in your eyes.
I see it in your heart.
I see it in your every move and every word.

You are the one you were always meant to be –
just covered by fear and shame –
and the wrong belief that being thin will instantly ease all your pain and allow you to create a life of rainbows and unicorns.

It’s time to leave that behind.
It’s time to unleash the superwoman that’s inside.

Not overnight.
But by strategically going through the steps to allowing your core to shine.

I’m here to help. <3

Rank #13: 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 #14: What is Enough?

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast, Deb and I explore the concept of “enough“.

Many ex-dieters have a hard time connecting with their body’s signals of hunger and fullness. It takes a while for them to re-learn what it means to have had enough food. When do you eat and when do you stop?

How do you stop eating before you’re super stuffed but also give yourself and your body enough pleasure to sustain you and keep you full of energy?

There are no black and white answers to this question and the feeling of what is “enough” will vary from day to day. It’s different for every person as every body is unique.

And that’s exactly where most have a slight freak out, right? After all, we’re so used to not having any grey zones when it comes to our diet. There are good foods and bad foods, depending on which expert we follow. We are supposed to eat what is deemed healthy and should feel guilty for eating anything else.

We eat exactly how much our weight loss expert told us to eat – whether we’re (still) hungry or not.

That’s not how it works, though. That’s not how reality is. That’s definitely not what having a healthy and balanced relationship with food looks like.

Exploring the concept of “enough” means building a deep relationship with yourself and rebuilding the trust that you’ve once had. There are certain guidelines (for example that regaining trust in your body and rebuilding the sense of what is enough can’t exist at the same time as managing your weight) you can build your foundation on and there are definitely many parameters that show you you’ve not eaten enough (fatigue, dizziness, constant hunger, hellloooo?!).

This – and more – is what you’ll learn by listening to this week’s show.

Enjoy!

Rank #15: Tearing down the thin-ideal norms with Patricia Moreno

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast, I am joined by Patricia Moreno.

As a fitness star at the top of her field, Patricia Moreno appeared to have it all, but knew she was both living and selling a lie; preaching that diet and exercise were the keys to true happiness, while inside she was suffering under a heavy spell of shame and unworthiness.

She knew there was more to life, and made it her mission to find the answer and break that spell for everyone suffering the same as her. After adventures that took her around the world studying, meditating and practicing with gurus and scholars, Patricia created the intenSati Method and began to reshape the fitness industry, and the lives of tens of thousands from the inside-out.

Today she’s speaking up and calling out the very methods and mindset that she used to be a part of. She is on a mission tear down the body-shaming self-objectifying thin-ideal norms, and show what self love in action truly looks and feels like.

We talk about:

  • How to heal your trauma around movement and exercise
  • What to do when affirmations don’t work and what really helps
  • The weight bias ingrained in the fitness industry
  • How you talk about yourself to yourself and the impact your language has on your self-concept
  • Extreme dieting and bingeing
  • Why to remove weight loss from your “to-do list”
  • The biggest lie women tell themselves
  • How to change your self-concept
  • The importance of being a role model for our children
  • and so much more!

You can find out more about Patricia’s work here.

Rank #16: Stop the War with Yourself

Podcast cover
Read more

Let’s get real here: you’re an expert at attacking your body, your fat, your self whenever life throws you the tiniest curveball, aren’t you?

You are a master at not feeling your feelings, not the ones that must be felt anyway, and instead you go into fight mode the moment life hurts.

You’re at war with yourself and you are convinced that combat is the only way to live your life; always attacking, always being acutely aware of all of your “flaws”.

But there’s another way to spend your time on this planet – even when life sucks and you are caught in a major funk.

You can tune into kindness instead of using force. You can say thank you to whatever situation you’re in and embrace the feeling that is deemed negative. You can stop the war against yourself and instead of being harsh, cold, or angry toward yourself, you can step into an attitude of romance, gentleness and allowing.

You still have time to embrace your weirdness, to realize that you are not wrong, to change the story of your life and come back home to a loving, caring energy.

Lean in, trust yourself and let yourself be taken care of – with love.

Rank #17: 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 #18: FALLing into Body-Love

Podcast cover
Read more

(Post 5/5 – read post #1 here, post #2 here,post #3 here and #4 here)

When Teresa stumbled over FALLing into Body-Love, she had an instant hit of “knowing” this was “it”.

She knew that this was the change she had been waiting for. This was the step she needed to take to break the cycle of dieting and begin to live into a new understanding of being in her body and “doing” food.

She knew that this was the first step on her path to body-love.

While she felt she wasn’t ready for deep 1:1 coaching, FALLing into body-love felt safe AND challenging, the right program at the right time.

She took the leap and allowed herself to be guided to a better, more loving understanding of who she was, of what body-love meant, of how to let go of fear, guilt and shame and of opening up to transition into a life without obsessing over food and the scale.

She took the step and she never looked back.

Here’s what will happen when YOU join FALLing into Body-Love:

Rank #19: The Wellness Myth

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast, Deb and I talk about the recent rebranding of Weight Watcher’s and how “Wellness that Works” will effect millions of people around the world.

We also discuss the way the diet industry has adopted the fat acceptance movement in order to help their own motives in ways that are not supportive of health or true body neutrality.

Instead of focusing on health in all forms (including mental health), the diet industry is using terms such as self-care in order to disguise their real message. They have turned self-care and wellness into just another box of you needing to lose weight.

The Diet Industry’s New Path is Truly Dangerous for People’s Health

It’s a dangerous path and it’s one that thankfully many of us are not prepared to go down anymore. However, there are millions of people who still believe that weight loss is the holy grail of health and feel like a massive failure for not having achieved their goal weight just yet.

It’s easy then to be enticed to go back to a program that tells you to count points and add labels to certain kinds of food. It almost makes sense track your fitness in the name of being allowed to eat more. It’s so easy to mistake these kinds of behaviors for true wellness and self-care if a whole company (being backed up by a giant industry) plays on your extreme insecurities that they implanted in the first place.

What Wellness is Really About

Wellness, feeling and being well, is not about starving your body and putting food into certain boxes, labelling it as good and bad. It’s not about earning points for going to the gym or stepping on a scale every day to obsess about the weight you may have lost by being “good”.

Wellness is about empowering yourself and making your own choices based on how you want to feel and the messages that your body is telling you. It’s about having fun in your body and being in communication with your inner most desires at all times. It’s about balance and paying attention to your current circumstances, allowing food and movement to support you in living life on your terms.

You cannot achieve this kind of wellness if your goal is to lose weight – whether your body is on board or not.

Wellness is about detaching from the idea that your weight determines your worth.

And although Oprah tells you that weight loss is the path to unleashing the immensely powerful woman that lies deep within you, you know that you know that you know that this goddess within can surface right now – no weight loss needed, thank you very much.

No, the new Weight Watcher’s approach has nothing to do with wellness. It’s just another way of making sure that women stay small, dependant on their products and unable to truly own their significant power to change the world in their own ways.
