Learning to listen to your body can be tough.
There can be so much confusion, so much noise, so much conflict.
Fortunately today in this conversation with Erika Salaman …
Erika shares her own story about feeling conflicted.
When Erika was first studying Nutrition in college, she thought that sugar was horrible.
She read about all the horrible things sugar does …
So she stopped eating sugar.
Erika was convinced this was the best decision she made in her entire life.
She lost weight, felt better, and reported all the amazing benefits of a ‘successful’ diet.
(I say ‘successful’ because diets can appear to be successful in the short-term, but as we know, diets are nearly always terrible in the long-run)
However, everything changed when Erika went to an Intuitive Eating meeting.
She heard stories of people who had helped their clients overcome eating disorders …
And then she finally asked on person, “Do you eat sugar?”
Erika thought this person surely would say “No” …
So she was shell-shocked when the person said, “I eat a bowl of ice cream every night!”
This opened up Erika’s eyes to the truth of sugar.
She could finally face the fact that she would binges on sugar, binges that she wasn’t admitting to herself or to others …
This started a journey of balance, a journey of healing.
Now years later, Erika helps people heal and walk the Intuitive Eating path.
I can safely recommend her! She’s located down in San Diego so if you are in the area, please be sure to visit her!
She also does over the phone work helping people heal disordered eating patterns.
