Healing Your Food Relationship

Gabrielle Bernstein is a motivational speaker and New York Times best-selling author of May Cause Miracles. She believes that simple, consistent shifts in our thinking and actions can lead to miracles across all aspects of our lives, including relationships, finances, bodies, and self-image.

In her inspiring guide, Gabrielle offers an exciting plan for releasing fear and allowing gratitude, forgiveness, and love to flow leading to appreciation, acceptance and happiness! Doesn't that sound lovely?!
Recently, Gabrielle wrote about eating and I knew my readers would benefit from her words of wisdom. I get many friends, family and readers asking me what to do about overeating or binge habits. Everyone has overindulged at some point, whether it be Christmas or at a special night out, but there are other times when you are mindlessly snacking or reaching to food for comfort. Bingeing can create disordered eating patterns, leading to a host of mental illnesses and anxiety conditions.

Support and positive words help you to stay on track and motivate you to heal yourself. I have posted below Gabrielle's take on her relationship with food.

From her website

Do you suffer from the BBQ binge? Holiday weekends can sometimes be a trigger for our worst eating habits. Obsessing over food like many other addictive behaviors is just another way of numbing out and avoiding un-felt pain, blocked emotions, or a true experience of life.

Everyone faces their relationship to food in unique ways. Some people obsess over every calorie, whereas others have no boundaries whatsoever. Whether you overeat out of boredom or you don’t eat out of fear, there is a spiritual condition that needs to be addressed.

Admittedly, I still struggle with my relationship to food and in this vlog I share some of my tips for recovery. Outing your ego is the first step in the healing process.
