EP280: Eating Psychology & Breaking the Dieting Cycle with Marc David

It’s often cited that 95% of those who lose weight on a diet will gain it all back within one year. 

Why might this happen?

Perhaps because most diets only address WHAT you are eating - but not WHY you are eating. 

How can you break the vicious dieting cycle? Listen to this week’s podcast with eating psychology expert, author and founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, Marc David!

Here are some of the fascinating tidbits we cover…

  • What an eating psychologist eats for breakfast
  • Why binge eating and emotional eating is on the rise
  • Why willpower is not the issue
  • Why we often reach for food when we are stressed 
  • 3 simple ways to reduce emotional eating
  • Why food is not the issue
  • Toxic nutritional beliefs and how to overcome them
  • The antidote to binge eating
  • Why how fast you eat matters
  • Marc’s #1 dietary rule
  • Three ways to start improving your relationship with food
  • And so much more! 

I completed Marc’s eating psychology training and it is one of the best things I’ve ever done! Please share this podcast with anyone you think might benefit and I hope you love it as much as I did.
