Peaceful Eating Q&A: Episode 4
Mon 30th Mar 2020
In this episode, I answered the following questions:

- Another makes the point that it’s not true that being thinner doesn’t make you healthier for the pure and simple reason that fat people don’t receive adequate health care.
- One person asks how to fix her broken fullness button.
- And the last question is about continuing the journey of body acceptance after weight restoration in eating disorder recovery.

Here’s what I covered in this Q&A replay:
- One subscriber asks about self-sabotage. She explains how she does so well, feels pleased with how she’s doing and then ‘it’s as though I find my good behaviour threatening’ and she sabotages her progress. She sees her life as a series of successes and failures.
- Another asks about emotional eating: she’s been a yo-yo dieter for over 25 years and wants help to stop her ‘junk food drug’ when she’s feeling overwhelmed.
- The last one has a condition called ansomia, which means no smell or taste and asks how else she can make Intuitive Eating work for her.
