So how's your relationship? Is it what you want it to be? We're talking about your relationship with food. In this episode, therapist Rachelle Heinemann explores our complicated relationship with food and how we all could have a healthier one.
You don't need to 'look' a certain way to struggle with an eating disorder. People of all shapes and sizes can struggle with their relationship with food. Sometimes our emotions become intertwined with eating, the first step is being able to separate the two.
A good starting point is food journaling to gather information about how you feel during your experiences with food. In addition, Heinemann's podcast "Understanding Disordered Eating" provides information about overcoming disordered eating. Bettering our relationship with food isn't a process that happens overnight. Over time, unlearning these behaviors becomes easier.
