EP298: Transforming Self Sabotage for Sustainable Weight Loss with Marc David

Intellectually understanding which foods are health supportive is not always enough to yield sustainable dietary change. 


Because most of us fall victim to self sabotage

In fact, almost 95% of those who lose weight gain it all back within one year which is why in today’s podcast Eating Psychology Expert and best-selling author, Marc David, we break down how and why we self sabotage and how to transform that tendency. Here’s what you’ll learn…

  • The cause of self sabotage
  • How to overcome self sabotage
  • The simple strategy to prevent binge eating
  • The 8 eating archetypes and how to work with them for sustainable weight loss
  • Common toxic nutritional beliefs (and how to overcome them)
  • The little-known cause of weight loss resistance
  • The best way to approach weight loss
  • Why weighing yourself daily can be an issue
  • How can we become “embodied” and why it’s beneficial
  • How to redefine your relationship with food
  • How to reduce your dependency on food as a sole source of pleasure
  • And so much more! 

I completed Marc’s Eating Psychology Program back in 2012 and it was life changing and I sincerely hope this conversation is as impactful for you as his program was for me.
