Episode Highlights: 

 (18:54) β€ŠIce cream I can have in my freezer. It doesn't bother me at all. But if there's cake around it’s different for me. There are just certain foods, or drinks, maybe it's soda. Everybody's brain responds differently to different things. Just get rid of it. It's such a decision to just say “I’m just getting rid of this”, and then our brain's gonna scream for it, and the answer's going to be no, there's not this possibility, and it just makes it so much easier.

(22:54) This is the underlying problem for so many of us, think about what happened when you were a young child; we were trained from a very young age that our negative emotions were wrong. We are all told big girls don't cry, right? That we shouldn't feel sad, we shouldn't feel grief, we shouldn't feel angry, we shouldn't feel jealous, we shouldn't feel stressed. We were trained that because these emotions are painful, we need to get rid of them as quickly as possible, and we were trained to use food to do that.

(27:12) When I started paying attention to what I was feeling and honoring it, I felt this huge sense of relief. It was a sense that there was nothing wrong with me, I'm a human being. I'm living a human experience, and all of these emotions that I'm feeling are completely natural and appropriate.
