Join Chef Lauren Bialkowski and Intuitive Eating Dietitian Christina Frangione for a 6 week virtual cooking series to gain confidence in the kitchen. Small group to begin 2/8/21.
If you’re working on becoming an Intuitive Eater, or if you’re familiar with the principles, you’re probably aware that emotional eating is not an inherently bad thing or something to overly concern yourself about trying to stop. Eating with emotion or in response to emotion is a fully human experience. However, you may be wondering, isn’t it bad if I’ve been eating emotionally every day since March 2020 and it doesn’t seem to be getting better now that it’s 2021?
In the inaugural video for my series of cooking videos for building intuitive eaters, we join chef Lauren Bialkowski in preparing a super fast, satisfying, nutritious, and delicious meal of overnight oats!
On Wednesday May 6th 2020 Suffolk County Legis. William R. Spencer (D-Centerport) announced a new initiative about putting the Town of Huntington on Long Island, New York on a “voluntary diet” in an effort to avoid weight gain during the COVID-19 pandemic. We know that diets are not the answer to the collective anxiety and trauma we are all experiencing surrounding this pandemic. We simply can’t shame people into being healthy. A diet may give us something to do and it may feel good for awhile, but inevitably the diet will end and the weight will come back and the negative feelings will return.
Check in with your friends (and especially your kids) using this time during lockdown to get “healthier”.
This intention, while usually innocent, can very often lead to disordered eating or even eating disorders (or relapse of an existing ED).
How are you doing in this time of uncertainty during the Corona Virus (Covid-19) Pandemic? If you’re having a hard time with food and body image or with your eating disorder recovery, you are most definitely not alone.
