Todays guest has been on a path for over 45 years, which so many people across the world will be able to resonate with.
She was a binge eater.
Finding huge comfort and them ultimate distress in her relationship with food.
For 45 years, she went through the yo-yo dieting/binge cycle time after time.
Her weight would balloon 40 or 50 pounds, and then she would diet to try recapture her body, depriving herself of all the foods she enjoyed.
She was trapped and didn’t know how to escape from the lifestyle that was anything but a happy one.
She suffered the shame, guilt and embarrassment of feeling out of control that every binge eater feels, wondering what was wrong with her and what others must think of her as they watched her gain the weight back over and over.
But now as the creator of the “magic zone” system where she teaches people how to eat what they want in moderation, never feeling deprived and never feeling compelled to binge, she hasn’t binged once.
And with her online platform Peaceful Eater and her best selling book Stop Binge Eating and Start Living Again she seems to have found her place in life.
So was she always a lady that even a child had a relationship with food that wasn’t conducive to peace of mind and healthy living?
And does she find that people struggle more and more with eating disorders as the media increase their focus on beauty and gorgeous celebrities?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Julie Latz.
During the episode we discussed such weighty topics such as:
How there are three distinct groups of eaters she encounters: The Nibbler, The Emotional, and The Binge Eater
How she would often creep away from her family at baseball matches to try to find something to nibble on without getting caught.
Why it is clear that she has to scale her business to be able to move away from it every once in awhile, and to help more people than presently.
How she feels that her issues have been a gift in her life, and she wouldn’t be able to do what she is doing now without them.
How she is blessed to feel no guilt in her life, as whatever she did at the time was what she felt was right at the time. Forget and move on.
