Always trying to lose weight, know how to do it but not achieving what you wish? In this podcast you’ll hear an open and honest conversation between Sjanett and Marc David, psychologist and founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating where they share their thoughts about this question.
Marc helps us understand how our struggle with food or body image is connected to the rest of our live. Understanding this can be very helpful in the process of healing. So be prepared for a talk which can help you further in your transformation path.
As you keep on listening, you’ll notice that the main approach Marc uses towards our food behavior comes from the perspective of compassion. He gives us an explanation of how our mechanism of self judgements lies in the way for healthy food behavior.
While most of us think we can achieve happiness by losing weight or gaining more muscle tissue, the road to that goal often doesn’t include measures that makes us happy. So for Marc it’s simple: if you want to end at happiness, then you have to include happiness in the journey.
Therefore Marc invites us to start asking questions about who we want to be as an eater. This will help us create more consciousness, which in return help us make more conscious food choices.
Listen to this beautiful conversation about self forgiveness, the inner child ánd the inner rebel, reaching your full potential and yes… Sjanett and Marc even talk about our obsession with our tummy.
