(07:03) My emotional connection to food has a whole lot to do with my self esteem and my worthiness. I feel like when I give myself permission to indulge in things that are not good for me, it has to do with me feeling worthy of health and worthy of nutrition and worthy of saying no to that stuff.
(14:47) When we have sensitive brains there's no such thing as moderation, it doesn't work that way when you're trying to get off crap food… Dr. Ashley Gearheart told us that 14% of people have actual addiction to processed foods, and then there's a whole bunch of other people who don't meet the criteria for addiction, but their brain is still super sensitive. I asked her what makes people's brains so sensitive? And she said it can be a family history of drug or alcohol addiction, or early exposure to a traumatic experience when your brain was forming. There's a lot of reasons why we might have super sensitive brains and it doesn't really matter what your particular reason is … what matters is that you recognize that this is the way your brain responds to these foods.
(19:10) How you learn these skills is you have to get plugged in with a mentor, you have to get plugged in with a community. It's not going to just happen out of thin air, you really have to get with somebody who can help you, a doctor, a community of people that are for the same goal. You have got to get into a community that can help you so that you can not only get the weight off, but to keep the weight off.
