It's Never About The Food

Magical Eating _ Modern World - Day 3 Promo (1).png

In 2005, I spent $8,000 on a meal preparation service, because I was afraid that I'd get fat if I prepared my own meals.
πŸ’°
Despite the fact that I had my own business preparing healthy meals for other people, in my own meal-prep service!
πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ
Doesn't that sound absolutely insane?
πŸ™Œ
Before I started to practice Food Magic, I purchased memberships to countless "diet" websites, bought hundreds of magazines and books about dieting, bought many calorie counters, and talked endlessly with my friends, family, and coworkers about food and diets.
πŸ˜“
I was also engaging in my standard 'binge-purge-starve' behaviors. If I wasn't actively on a diet, my eating felt out of control anyway. 
πŸ’£
Dieting was a way for me to feel like I had regained control over myself. I had become convinced that I needed to be controlled.
⛓️
That my feelings didn't matter.
πŸ’“
That I could push through the pain of any situation.
πŸ’“
That my needs were not important.
πŸ’“
Like some kind of caged animal.
🦁
It all seemed so normal!
πŸ’“
The biggest problem is that I am not SPECIAL. Most women experience this same pattern of 'binge-purge-starve' behavior to some degree.
πŸ’“
Maybe you don't literally purge food, but you exercise until you're beyond exhausted.
πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ
Maybe you 'only' starve yourself after eating something that you 'shouldn't' have eaten.

This pattern of discourse with food and self is so common in our society that it feels normal to us.
πŸ’“
Until it doesn't.
πŸ’“
Until we're so tired of obsessing over food that we literally cannot. even. anymore.
πŸ’“
Food is magical.
πŸ’“
It doesn't have to be difficult, and you don't need to be controlled. 
πŸ’“
My new program, Magical Eating in a Modern World, will bring you on a magically-fun journey with food. You'll learn how to truly enjoy food and stop using it as a weapon against yourself!
