Mindful Eating Gone Horribly, Horribly Wrong

    great post! I think for many it is really hard to shake that drive to change their bodies…..which is too bad because learning how to be “mindful” and getting more “in tune” with your body (hunger, energy level, etc) has nothing to do with weight, and more to do with figuring out how to take care of yourself so you can FEEL GOOD. I love going to those seminars too, but I will skip that one when it comes to New England! Thank you for the update!

      The doctor who ran it was from the MB-EAT program. I much prefer Intuitive Eating and Ellyn Satter’s models over MB-EAT as it turns out!

    Same old. Back in the 60s, Orbach stared up the “love yourself as you are now so that you’ll stop being what you now because what you are now is icky but you’re only icky now because you don’t love yourself” bullshit. Just another attempt to justify bigotry.

      I feel your frustration. I read “Fat is a Feminist Issue” when I started my HAES journey and was dismayed how much it was about still trying to change the fat body. I believe Susie Orbach has had quite a shift since then and works more towards body-acceptance, and seems to have dropped the “and this will help you lose weight” part. I think, though, she works more to eradicate eating disorders and stays safely away from the fat-is-okay message. I’ll do some more reading to see what her message is now.
