We know that the primary reason we eat is because our body needs fuel to survive, yet our relationship with food extends far beyond that---it's not just about what we should or shouldn't be eating. It incorporates aspects of our physiology, emotions, behaviors, and thought patterns, and how we feel about our lives, all rooted in a culture that supports and fosters an unhealthy, disordered relationship with food. Despite our repeated efforts, many of us find ourselves falling back into the same habitual patterns around food---habits that keep us overweight and unhappy.
Laura Dawn sheds light on how we get hooked on the food struggle from six primary perspectives: environmental, physiological, behavioral, mental, emotional and spiritual, and provides concrete steps you can take to unhook yourself from the struggle with food.
