Stephanie Dodier is an emotional eating expert who teaches women to go beyond the food by first understanding why there is a desire to eat. Start by asking yourself: What is my relationship with the food I have been eating? Am I trying to fit in a model? Why am I binging? Am I numbing my pain with food?
Stephanie proposes to understand the behavior before trying to control it. This is the reason why most women tend to engage and fail in numerous diets, feeling guilty and shameful afterward, perpetuating a cycle of emotional eating.
In this podcast, you will learn about emotional and intuitive eating, what dictates your body image, and the emotions you have towards yourself. Learn concepts such as body and food neutrality, and discover a different way to see yourself. It is possible to live a life without guilt, fear, and restriction.
