I’m excited to share the latest episode of The Love, Food Podcast! If you aren’t familiar with this gem from registered dietitian Julie Duffy Dillon, you’re in for a treat (and you can subscribe here). And I got to be Julie’s latest guest, answering a letter from a listener whose new peace with food is causing conflict with her family.

Some highlights:

  • How healing your own relationship with food can be like an alternate universe from the world Diet Culture promotes. (Making reference to the TV show Stranger Things.)
  • Why sharing facts about diet statistics can make other people dig deeper into their existing beliefs
  • When it seems that EVERYONE else is discussing their latest diet, detox, or “clean eating,” it is about them, not you.
  • What might happen if you change the way you typically respond to others.
  • The books recommended: Mindsight by Daniel J. Siegel; and Mistakes Were Made (but Not by Me) by Carol Tavris and Elliot Aronson.
