One time, for 28 days, I drank nothing but protein shakes.
I was following a supposedly AMAZING fitness diet to lose weight. While I did lose some, I gained most of it back within a few months.
I’ve tried almost every “diet” in the world, whether it was back when I was trying to add muscle to play college sports, lose weight when I was 60lbs heavier or fix my health after that.
And I can tell you that after publicly talking about my story and working with people for the last 6 years there’s NO DOUBT in my mind… that our relationship to food must be explored.
Whether you sometimes cheat, fall off the wagon, binge, overeat like I used to do… or whether you get “stuck” and militant about foods or stress eat like Jordan has in the past… or whether you’re like good friends of mine who’ve starved themselves or purged at times…
I want you to know you’re not crazy nor should you be ashamed.
I do want to encourage you to explore your pattern with food, though – to get curious, fascinated and excited to discover your patterns. Because guess what, everyone has them.
One of the best ways to start is by listening to this very raw podcast where I talk about my patterns with food, where Emily shares her very vulnerable story and Marc helps us all relax into a more solid relationship with it. [click to continue…]
