This blog comes from a recent Facebook post that got quite a big response on my profile page, so I wanted to share it, in service of anyone who is struggling and feeling misunderstood…
Time to bust a few myths that are hurting a lot of folks.
1. Not all food addicts are fat. And if I hear from one more person who, after asking me how I got into helping high achievers get free from food addiction tell me, “wow, well you look great NOW!” I’m gonna scream. How you look on the outside has little to do with the insanity that goes on on the inside when you’re struggling with addiction. Just ask any high functioning alcoholic. At the peak of my food addiction, I was actually a health and fitness expert, and looked like the picture of health.
Which brings me to the next myth I want to bust.
