Episode 140: The Minnesota Starvation Experiment: What You Need To Know
20 min

When you go on a diet, you lose weight. End of story. Right? 

Wrong. In 1945 one of the first and most comprehensive studies on the physical and psychological effects of semi-starvation was completed. This study was later dubbed the Minnesota Starvation Experiment. The findings that researchers learned from this experiment still hold true today. Only now we know it’s not just those who have endured periods of starvation who will suffer with these consequences, DIETERS will suffer with them too.

Whether you’re a past dieter, current dieter, or a person looking to jump off of the diet hamster wheel…this episode is going to knock your socks off. Enjoy!

(230) Weight changes (Intuitive Eating Series)
Have you heard Intuitive Eating can help you lose weight if you do it right? Blech. NO. I know you've heard that yet it is sooooo off. That advice is steering you in the direction away from Food Peace. I want to help you get back on track. Listen to latest Love Food Podcast for insight. This episode of the Love Food Podcast is brought to you by Jennifer McGurk's Pursuing Private Practice programs. Anti-diet dietitians: take business building one step at a time surrounded by community and support. I highly recommend Jennifer's Pursuing Private Practice Programs.

I want to support Black podcasters get the word out about their fat positive show. Send details to LoveFoodPodcast@gmail.com. Dear Food: After a lifetime of eating, bingeing, and restricting, I finally felt like I needed to shift the way we exist in the world together. I've loved you, feared you, needed you, and abused you. We were in need of couples therapy. Luckily, I found a great podcast that was all about you! After binge listening to the Love Food Podcast, I was inspired to explore intuitive eating. For the last month, I've immersed myself into the intuitive eating/body positive culture by reading and investigating different books, blogs, etc. What I learned felt right, and I started to implement the tenets of intuitive eating. We had a great two week honeymoon, where I wasn't anxious about dining out and I allowed myself to eat what I truly craved. I was also vigilant about stopping before I got too full. It was pretty amazing to learn how little I actually needed to feel satisfied. Things were going great until I did something stupid. I stepped on the scale. Yes, I know the experts said you can't diet and practice intuitive eating at the same time. But, my old compulsion got the best of me. So I weighed myself and it turns out I lost a few pounds. Almost effortlessly. And that's where I derailed. Since finding out I've lost some weight, I've been bingeing and restricting again! It's the same thing I would do when I used to diet. Lose a little, and then eat my way back up the scale. What am I doing??? I can't seem to find the intuitive path again. Every day I try, but end up bingeing by the end of the day. How did I get here again? I was feeling so empowered and free just a couple of weeks ago, and now I'm feeling defeated and fat all over again. I somehow turned intuitive eating into another diet gone wrong. Food, I want to get us on the right path again but I'm not sure how.

My journey with exercise has been chaotic for most of my life. Dieting really screwed up my relationship to exercise as much as it f*cked up my relationship to food.

And then I quickly realize that as much work I needed to do to change how I perceived food and my food habits I needed to do the same work with exercise. I had to make a conscious decision to heal my relationship to exercise. I stopped waiting for prince charming to come and fix it all. If I was going to find ever find joy in moving my body I had to be intentional. Diet culture might have f*cked how I see exercise but it was up to me to unf*ck it. In this episode of the podcast Kim Hagle a mom of four and non-diet fitness expert is going to help us heal our relationship to exercise. Kim hosts The Intuitive Movement Show podcast and through her signature program Right Body for Me, she helps women discover joyful movement and motivation that lasts so they can heal their relationship to exercise and feel confident in their own skin.

How Your Personality Fuels Your Eating Disorder AND Recovery with Carolyn Costin, LMFT
According to world-renowned clinician and author Carolyn Costin, LMFT, Founder of Monte Nido and The Carolyn Costin Institute, people with eating disorders often share similar personality traits, such as being anxious, perfectionistic, controlling, rigid, impulsive, and/or compulsive. Rather than blaming your genetic predispositions for fueling your eating disorder and rejecting these traits, she shares how to use them to shine, even during times of crisis. In this episode of The Recovery Warrior Show, Carolyn dives into many concepts from her book 8 Keys to Recovery from an Eating Disorder such as the importance of detaching worth from ego, learning acceptance, and how to reduce suffering during difficult times. === Holiday Support === Sign up at www.warriorholidaysupport.com to get access to an exclusive training series to support you in feeling your best over the holidays. === In This Show You'll Learn: === • How to shift your personality traits from darkness to light. • Why differentiating your “ED Self” from your “Healthy Self” is vital. • How the practice of acceptance vs. resistance can help you recover. • Why hating your eating disorder is not the answer and how working with it can help you heal. • Why it’s important to find a balance between feeling emotions and distracting in a healthy way. • What “soul moments” are and how to find them. === Show Notes === https://www.recoverywarriors.com/carolyn-costin/

How to Get Started Lifting Weights and Why?
This week, I'm ready to buckle down and get back on track. I found an article that has me wanting to mix in weight training. -------- WEIGH IN -------- 229.3 - I consider this my new starting weight. ------------------------------------ LIFTING WEIGHTS - HOW TO GET STARTED ------------------------------------ According to an article on Yahoo ( https://www.yahoo.com/news/often-strength-train-build-muscle-222209427.html ) , you can try doing full body exercises every other date. It's really important to give your body time to recuperate. You need to let your body repair itself. This time is when your muscles come back bigger. *WHY?* According to that article, "Numerous scientific studies show that regular strength training can be a huge benefit to your health long-term by improving cognitive function, emotional and mental well-being, and mobility by reducing muscle loss as you grow older." Keep in mind your muscles burn calories, and you naturally lose your muscle as you get older (yes, that does suck). The less muscles you have, the less calories you burn. The less calories you burn the more weight you may put on. HOW HARD DO YOU PUSH? --------------------- For muscle definition, choose a weight that has you fatigued by the end of six to 12 repetitions. In general you want to push yourself to the point where you can't do any more. As always contact your doctor and be safe (have a spotter if you're using a bench and doing bench presses). Your muscles get bigger when you push them to the point where you can't do it. During the day off your body repairs your muscles, and actually comes back bigger. EVENTUALLY DO MORE ------------------ At some point the weight you are using will become easier, and that's when its time to increase one of the following: * The number of sets, * The number of Reps, * Or you add more weight. People who do weight training on a regular basis reap the benefits years later. You may not like it now, buy your future self will thank you.

Hypothangry | Dr. Vickie Bhatia
Hypothangry: Imagining a hypothetical confrontation, then playing out the fight you’d hypothetically have with that person inside your own brain. Fantasy fights are often conducted with loved ones or friends, but can occur with total strangers. (See: “hypothetically angry,” the cousin-once-removed of “rehearsing disaster.”) Today, licensed clinical psychologist and Whole30 Certified Coach Dr. Vickie Bhatia comes back to the podcast to unpack why we create hypothetical situations in our head and then get mad about them in real life. We’ll discuss how relationships, trauma, uncertainty, and judgment factor in; where anger really comes from and whether anger is helpful or harmful; the two most common triggers for hypothangry scenarios; and a plan for identifying, interrupting, and moving on gracefully from this behavior.  Continue the conversation with me @melissau on Instagram.

Ep 134 - Diet Thinking and Byron Katie
Welcome to How to Love Your Body - today we are talking about a concept that was created by Byron Katie - it’s all about questioning our thoughts and figuring out who we would be/ what would we feel like without the thoughts that cause us misery and suffering. This relates perfectly with our thoughts about food and our bodies. It’s about questioning these thoughts and asking yourself if they are true. A big reason humans endure so much suffering in their thoughts is because they think things “should” be a certain way. It’s most likely because we were taught it should be this way or that the person next to you is doing something so you think to yourself that it should be this way for you too. This happens in all areas of our life - by this age I should have this and be this … I should look this way, I should eat this way, I should, should, should… it’s all a bunch of shoulding on yourself -- so how can you stop shoulding on yourself? Let’s dive into a few common thoughts that may hold you back from truly being able to live your life as an Intuitive Eating and UnDieter. 1.Who would you be without the thought ...I need to lose weight? Is the answer peace/Freedom? If so you most likely aren’t suffering because you actually “need” to lose weight - you are suffering because of the THOUGHTS that you have. So what to do? Question these thoughts and shift them. Is it true you really need to lose weight? According to who? Is it that you need to lose weight or is it the pressure from society to meet certain standards to look a certain way? “I need to lose weight” has no depth - it is an empty “requirement” - how much weight do you need to lose? How can you actually put a number on it ? A lot of our “should” thoughts are completely random and we plucked them out of the air (or picked them up from what someone said) and decided they were true. The truth is we can’t control our bodies - we can’t decide that x amount of weight “will be the answer” - it’s not about pursuing weight loss. It’s about listening to your body and letting it do it’s thing. It’s about living a life without rigidity and obsession. It’s about doing things that feel good to you - your body will land where it’s gonna land regardless, it will ebb and flow throughout life - * Who would you be without the thought...I shouldn’t eat that? Is the answer at ease with food? A person who can just eat what feels good and move on? If so you most likely aren’t suffering because you actually shouldn’t eat that - you are suffering because of the THOUGHTS that you have. So what to do? Question these thoughts and shift them. What if “eating that” is the very thing that is actually best for you and your body? What if eating that cookie will give you pleasure, joy, and a clear mind that isn’t filled with restriction. What if allowing yourself to eat what you want gives you a sense of empowerment which turns into listening to your body and finding a natural balance? what if you naturally eat a variety of foods with all different levels of nutrients that feel good to you? Without the thought “I shouldn't eat that” you can be free and at peace to trust your body and live your life. * Who would you be without the thought...If I gain weight I’ll be unhealthy/ or if I don’t lose weight I’ll be unhealthy? Is the answer at peace in your body? If so you most likely aren’t suffering because you actually will be unhealthy if you gain weight - you are suffering because of the THOUGHTS that you have. So what to do? Question these thoughts and shift them. What is healthy? What is unhealthy? Can you really be one or the other? When does one cross over and become healthy? When does one all of a sudden become unhealthy? There is not one way to define health - anyone can be on any part of the health spectrum at any size - and not one person is the same. What about the cases that you hear when someone obtains “perfect” health as in - always eats balanced/ in moderation, worksout daily, and is in a “normal” weight range - these people are not exempt from diseases or sickness. Someone living in a larger body can have great health - bloodwork is all in the normal range, heart health is on point, and no other diagnosis. So how in the world can someone say, If I gain weight I’ll be unhealthy - is that really true? There is scientific proof that this is not the truth. Anyone’s health can be anything - and we only have so much power (honestly very little in the scheme of things) over our health through our actions - yes we can participate in positive health behaviors - that’s great. And even then we can’t control the outcome. We can let scary thoughts run our lives - control us in ways that feel suffocating - and such a healing thing to do for yourself is to learn to question these thoughts and realize - actually, THIS is the truth! So when these thoughts start to come up - ask yourself - who would I be without this thought? If you uncover a feeling of peace/ freedom/ or any other feeling that feels good - you can automatically uncover that it’s the thoughts that are causing all this uneasiness and stress. Not the actual thing you’re worrying about. Thoughts are powerful and so are we - so it’s important to not believe every single thing we think and hear - and since thoughts are so powerful - shifting your thoughts to something that feels better will allow you to live a life that feels manageable, more enjoyable, and with less suffering. All this is easier said than done - but it can be done! Practice and see what comes from it. :) Reminder that you can get our Separating Weight and Wellness workbook. - get it here. bit.ly/wwworkbook

How To Heal Your Gut- The Gut Restoration Protocol
*Show Summary: Many people have gut dysfunction because we live in a very harmful and antagonistic society towards our gut biome. What’s worse is some scientists say that it is totally fine when it’s not. Childhood allergies are one of the harmful effects, and it has now tripled, which is why we have to be cautious of what is detrimental to our health.* *Other factors contributing to gut dysbiosis are stress, which increases inflammation and makes it a hostile environment for healthy bacteria to populate. Second is antibiotics and birth control. Third are the foods containing glyphosate, mostly found in bread, pasta, or processed food that uses wheat.* *Learn some practical steps on how to start restoring your gut biome with Juanique, as she also discusses her top six list of most inflammatory foods on the planet. Find out what superfoods you can eat to feed the good bacteria and help them grow exponentially.* *Important Links* *Gutsy Health Website* *Provo Health Instagram* *Gut Restoration* *3 Exceptional Highlights:* * *We need to have the good bacteria be the king of the castles, we need more of them, the bigger the army, the more damage control they can do.* * *Those born in the 90s I think are like five times more likely to get colon cancer in their 30s.* * *You're going to take your probiotic with food so that as it goes in and germinates its spores out. It should have food to eat because it wants to grow.* *Show Highlights: * *What is the screening age for colon cancer now? * *Juanique 3:45* * *There were a lot of very triggered people, and I apologize, but it basically said that those born in the 90s I think are like five times more likely to get colon cancer in their 30s.* *What is a healthy gut?* *Juanique 9:38 * * * A healthy gut has a nice strong lining epithelium lining so it's not broken down.* *How does inflammation start?* *Juanique 14:30* * *When we don't have enough healthy good bacteria to protect the mucous lining, the epithelial lining starts to break down. And when it breaks down with that mucosal lining starts to kind of dry up, and vaporize. * *What is rebalancing?* *Juanique 21:32* * *Rebalance is stress management, yoga, exercising self-care, deep breathing, meditation. * *How to repair and repopulate?* *Juanique 21:47* * *If you have insane gut dysbiosis if you potentially have cebo you might not want to start with this one.
