"This can be a very anxious process. There's so much trauma around food... Learning to feel your body can be a scary process that brings up a lot."
I'm super excited to introduce you to Jared Levenson - the founder of Eating Enlightenment.
Jared was plagued with binge-eating for years until he learned how to transform his relationship with food. He's now a mindful eating zen master who's helped countless people curb their cravings through the power of journaling so they can feel empowered and enlightened around their food choices.
In this powerful episode, Jared explains why journaling is such an effective tool for tackling food problems - as well as sharing his own personal story of transformation.
I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I enjoyed recording it.
"The process of writing changes reality... it's very inspiring."
In this episode, Jared and I explore:
"Usually before people emotionally eat there's this cacophony - this internal argument back and forth that escalates. Then people binge to calm down those voices."
Feeling empowered around food can be a transformative experience. I hope this episode helps you to navigate forward in some way.
