Ep. 6: End the Vicious Diet Cycle + Trust Yourself with Pam
Feelings of failure, shame, and guilt are the biggest products that the diet industry sells us. This 70 billion dollar industry negatively impacts the mental and emotional health of millions of men and women, promising quick fixes, but ultimately always ending in failure.
My caller today, Pam, knows this struggle firsthand as she has been dieting in an attempt to lose the same 30 pounds for years. She has been stuck in the diet cycle for a long time, but has been unable to lose weight in a sustainable way.
As a result, she has put herself under immense pressure to finally lose weight, which only leads to feelings of failure or shame anytime she doesn’t live up to the high expectations she’s set.
Pam also finds herself overwhelmed and confused by the huge amount of often conflicting information about food, exercise, and health on the internet. But today, she is ready to break out of the yo-yo cycle and make real change. We dive deep into her beliefs around herself and food, and identify the root of her disordered mindset. We also lay out several immediate action steps to help her on her journey to healing.
If you struggle with diet mindset, or just experience negative behavior patterns with food and your weight because of what was modeled to you as a child, you will find a lot of value in this episode as we take the first steps towards healing together.
