How Did We Get To This?
While 815 million people worldwide (that's one in nine) go to bed hungry - one in three suffer from malnutrition, and yet in 2016 The World Health Organistion reported that 1.9 billion adults were overweight, of which, 650 million were obese.
Many of us are afraid to eat food....
Fear that it will kill us, bad for us, make us fat, make us ill. If we don't eat a certain way we are not good enough...
In "Healing The Shame That Binds You" John Bradshaw talks about how diets underscore a paradox of toxic shame.
"In dieting and losing weight, you have the sense of controlling and fixing the problem. Control is one of the major strategies - we attempt to control the outside so the inside will not be exposed."
When the truth is, that unless you also do the "inner work" like we do on my Project 12 Transformation program, all you are doing is dealing with symptoms.
Diets teach you to deal with the symptoms, and mask the cause while giving you the false promise that all will be fixed.
Unfortunately That's not how it works.
