She’s back and it’s not hard to see why she’s a fav guest of the show! Dr Krista Scott-Dixon of Stumptuous.com and Precision Nutrition has a new book that poses an interesting question: Why Me Want Eat? What drives us to eat certain things and why do we struggle to change certain food related behaviors?
While not all of us have experienced full blown, clinical eating disorders we are all members in one way or another of the Food & Eating & Body Image Issues Club. KSD explains why it’s not always easy to give up our membership card – even if we want to. There’s comfort, certainty and even a clinging to our issues, our “stuff” and these are darn good reasons not to change. She points out that our stuff doesn’t always come at the hand of some Big T - big trauma like abuse, injury or major loss. Many of us haven’t suffered a huge trauma but rather have dealt with the constant, small, emotional papercuts of life. Either way, food, body image and exercise “stuff” is prevalent and Krista’s advice is always sound, slightly humorous and if followed allows us all to make change easier and make it stick. We adore her, tune in to see why.
