I talk a lot about normalizing eating behaviors, for good reason. It’s been my experience that a very large majority of our guests, as well as society at large, have disordered eating behaviors. These are defined as restricting, bingeing, purging, overeating, emotional eating, food anxiety, fear of food, body hatred, body shame, food guilt or shame, etc. You may have one, a few or all of those (and more) but anywhere you are on the continuum of disordered eating is not healthy.
I have a couple of favorite screening tools I would like to share below.
Please take the time to look through these. I absolutely believe that when we approach our relationship with food as one that needs healing, compassion and love we get much, much further than when we see it as a matter of self-control, willpower or being critical of what we eat.
If you have any questions or concerns about these tests or your results, please don’t hesitate to contact me – firstname.lastname@example.org
