The Dr. Carolyn Coker Ross Show: Binge Eating Disorder, Stress Eating, Emotional Eating, Food Addiction

Dec 14, 2020

“Food and money are both used to self-soothe.”

You may not be aware that if you have binge eating, food addiction, or emotional eating, your relationship with food may be a mirror for your relationship with money. If you binge with food, you may also be a binge shopper or spender. My guest, Francine Rogers, says she can easily look at a client’s credit report and identify everything about their relationship with money. Both food and money can be used to self-soothe emotional upset, to celebrate, and to numb yourself.

In this episode, you will learn:

⦁ How food and money issues have the same root causes.
⦁ Why a focus on numbers (FICO score or the number on the scale) can never solve either food or money problems.
⦁ Three steps you can take to heal your relationship with food and money.
