Diet culture is more influential than many of us realize. There are so many diet messages that we have heard repeatedly that over time have become lodged deep within our psyche. It can be hard to shake these messages even when we have evidence that those messages are m...

I am now a card-carrying member of the Happy Eaters Club. I've found a way of eating that works for me and is totally sustainable over the long-term. I'm consistently well-nourished and never feel deprived or like I can't eat enough to satisfy my hunger.

Of course, this...

Whether you love the holidays or dread them, stress and sugar are seemingly everywhere this time of year…an unavoidable fact of life. 

I hear some variation on "Oh my God, the holidays stress me out" and "I can't seem to moderate myself around all the FOOD" every day.

I was talking to a friend on the phone the other day who was telling me that she really wanted to lose some weight.  She told me about her plan to do a little Master Cleanse, cut out certain foods most days, and allow some cheat meals/days.

I’m listening…I’m biting my t...

I have written quite a bit about how I eat like I’m on vacation ALL THE TIME.  So when I actually go on vacation, I just eat like normal.

The other day I went to the local chain drugs...

I used to feel really out of control around food. 

I labeled myself, my days, and my food choices as “good” or “bad”.  I was either “on the wagon” or “nowhere in the vicinity of the wagon”. 

Moderation was not in my vocabulary.  And I was pretty miserable and mean t...

Today I got an email from Hay House—a publishing company that I love!—with the subject line “Are You Addicted to Food?” 

Of course, I opened it. 

It’s one of those questions that endures for me…can a person be *addicted* to certain foods?  I have definitely had times in...

Do you have one?  A binge switch?  I do, and it’s the craziest thing!

For years, I struggled with food and controlling my *unruly urges* to overeat.  I was constantly trying to rein myself in so that I wouldn’t overeat and I failed over and over again.  Of course,...

The other day a beautiful, fit friend of mine posted a picture on Facebook of thin mint girl scout cookies with the caption, “Does anyone else put these bad boys in the freezer, and count one sleeve as half a serving…..? Or is that just me…?”  I laughed out loud at the...
