If you’re an avid reader of ours, you know that I used to be 60 pounds heavier. In fact, when I shared my before and after pictures here, I had several friends ask if that was really me (it is). When I first started this health journey, I just wanted to get rid of my gas and bloating. But as soon as that pain was gone, I started to focus on total health including losing all my extra fat, skin issues and brain problems.
One struggle I had that I don’t talk about nearly enough is my relationship with food. I grew up in a “sweets” house and ended up developing a toxic overeating and stress eating problem. I’ve had to re-establish my relationship with food and work at it from several angles.
It’s really easy to begin to hate food when it causes you digestive pain or doesn’t make you happy like it used to. That’s why I think it’s always a good idea to honor our relationship with food and how it impacts our weight and health. In today’s podcast I dive into this for a bit. But for the rest of it, Abel James, from fatburningman.com, shares some awesome insights about fat loss and how the model industry tricks us into creating fake body image goals.
I met Abel a few months ago and we clicked on quite a few topics. And for good reason. He’s one of the most sought after people in the fat loss industry and it just so happens to be that he has the #1 rated health podcast in iTunes.
