Description

Diets and "healthy" eating fads are a January fixture - but few of us stick to these harsh regimes. And when the dieting ends, we often go back to the "bad" foods we craved during our fasting.

Psychotherapist Andrea Wachter says this dieting "roller coaster" makes our minds obsess over food and causes our bodies no end of harm. Andrea stepped off the roller coaster by taking a kinder and calmer approach to the foods she consumed. She tells Dr Laurie Santos the key rule - feed yourself like you'd feed someone you love.

Wasn't really a fan of this guest. Her grouping of dieting and eating disorders was counter-productive, unhelpful, and harmful. Eating disorders are serious issues that people die from, and to group even her own experience of recovering from an eating disorder with these "steps" she took and that everyone can take is just ridiculous. Dieting and disordered eating should not be grouped in with a mental illness. The former group these tips would work for; the latter requires much more in-depth care, counseling, and treatment.
