I have shared with you my own personal struggle with an eating disorder in a recent podcast episode. The disorder destroyed me. I had so much fear, dread, panic, obsessions, and compulsions around fear and exercise. To give you a bit of context as to why this episode is important to me, Evelyn’s book Intuitive Eating pretty much changed my life. I go back to the book and check in with it. We are all on a journey to break free from fear surrounding food and fear around the bodies we have or disown (such as telling ourselves that our body is bad).
I feel comfortable saying that many of us, on a spectrum, struggle with this one issue. I think that the fear we experience around food is such a huge part of our own relationship with ourselves and us trusting ourselves and us having peace with who we are in our body...the body that carries us around each day.
In this interview, Evelyn does an incredible job identifying why there is immense fear surrounding food and addressing cultural, societal, and familial rules around food. She identifies these rules as coming from diet culture, which she says is all around us. We break down some of the barriers between food and fear and discuss the relationship between food and anxiety. For many of us, our anxiety manifests as a bad relationship with food. For others, food creates anxiety for us personally.
