When Food Is Love

Food is love. I just completed  a LIVE call with 20 participants in my September Sugar Buster Program.

The topic tonight was about our relationship to food  and how to heal it. I wanted  to share this topic with you as I don’t think many people are sharing this.

A book I recommend is by Geneen Roth and it is called “When Food Is Love“.

I the book, Geneen explores why many people overeat in an attempt to satisfy their emotional hunger, and why weight loss frequently just uncovers a new set of problems. But her welcome message is that change is possible. This book helped me break destructive, self-perpetuating patterns and learn to satisfy all the hungers—physical and emotional—that make us human.

Geneen’s personal story and those of her clients highlight the meaning of food addiction.

I shared tonight that my Sugar Buster Program is really about love. Loving ourselves enough to feed our body with the most nourishing diet that enlivens our lives. I asked a few questions tonight that you might find helpful for your own reflection.

      1. What role does food play in your  life?
      2. What role does food play in your emotional gratification?
      3. What insights have you gained this week about your relationship to food?
      4. What new habits would you like to start relating to food?
      5. What is weighting you down in your life?
