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

Mar 9, 2022

If you are dissatisfied with your body, you are not alone.  While having self-doubts is a normal part of being human, if your self-evaluation is primarily dependent on your superficial appearance, your size or shape, that can lead to shame, negative self-talk, suffering and the use of extreme and harmful behaviors to reach the ever-elusive thin ideal.  As well, it’s important to realize that trying to “hate yourself thin” can put stress on your body and increase belly fat and risk for diabetes and heart disease.   

In this episode you will learn:

  1. What some women are willing to give up in exchange for a thin body.
  2. How to stop the transmission of body image issues from one generation to another.
  3. Why weight stigma may be the reason for health risks, not size!
