Thank you so much Ken for having me here. I’m so excited
You’re welcome, yes me too. So, let’s go ahead and get right into this and talk about body shame and self-discovery.
Is that where we’re starting? My favorite subject. Okay, body shame is something that I don’t think I’m the only one that experienced it. I say that it’s something that is taught to us when we are younger. Whereas the things we do… I think things have shifted a lot with parenting lately, but I think that when we were younger, our parents if they didn’t like things, or if our parents didn’t think it was good for us, or if you’re not doing something according to their specifications, parents would call you out on it or bring it up. Then there would be this non-acceptance. It almost feels like it’s the behavior that has the non-acceptance, but it actually comes across to the child as non-acceptance of them, because as a child we don’t know the difference. We think that it’s us that are not accepted, right? So, I think that when you start to put on pounds when you’re at a young age or you’re eating in a certain way. In my family it was related to the way you ate and if you ate too much. So now all of a sudden that behavior is not acceptable and your family’s kind of watching you. Now as you continue on your path of nourishment, which is supposed to be the most nourishing years of your life, we start to develop this story that we carry for the rest of our life. I am just going to go back to the child in the book “Eat Your Words.” Because we start to develop our vocabulary that we internalize based on what our parents are saying to us. So now if I were to consciously eat, I’m really going through my own psyche and saying wait, should I have this, or should I not eat this. I mean it starts at an early age. So, it’s really actually about seeing ourselves in a certain way. Through the eyes of our parents or guardians or our loved ones, right?
I have a bunch of experience with this also. I mean my wife deals with body shame and a number of family members who also deal with it. We actually have a foster daughter and I really have to be careful with the words I use. Because I do not want to put body shame onto her or words into her head. But I want to train her to take care of herself. There are just so many people who suffer from this. What do you think we can do?
So, you want the solution. There is no easy answer because there is not a one-size-fits-all for anybody, right? Including myself, I mean, I almost didn’t write the book because I didn’t have a solution. The book is not written with a solution to it but to help people recognize that there are other people out there that feel exactly the same way that they do. I mean it’s really getting underneath everything like every instance or event in one’s life creates a certain feeling. Then from all of these events, we choose what we say to ourselves. I mean my choice… thank God I didn’t do drugs, but food can be a drug depending on how you use it right? So back to the solution question, I find down the path That I have to be very very conscious of what the words are when I have an emotion. Because there’s a lot of emotions that are associated with our behavior. How we eat, what we eat, and what we choose, are very associated with how we really feel about ourselves. If we were really to check into it right now there’s a lot of science going on about how different reactions, real chemical reactions, are affecting the brain. How they are causing different types of cravings. Dr. Amen does a whole study of it and he wrote a whole book on it. I’ve been studying with the Amen clinic also, on these types of cravings and these types of behaviors. Because they can become uncontrollable and it’s really based on foods, different foods create a lot of these cravings. If you start to eat sugar, by the way, sugar is the number 1 culprit in these cravings, so if we start to eat sugar then we crave more sugar. so, when something happens, we then want to eat something sugary. I do work with people to change behaviors and the consciousness of our thoughts is super key here. Also, I’m trying to retrain how I’m looking at the whole behavior and I now say to myself and train others on ways to nourish the brain. What kind of Vitamins and what kind of nutrients, because there are so many choices out there, to balance the brain out? Which will minimize the cravings. It’s a whole thing, It often backfires in our face. It has for both me, and for my character from my book, okay her name is Gianna Giovanni and she comes from an Italian family which focuses on food, right it is in the DNA. She goes through her life of dieting. Then things happen in her life, then she starts this diet and that one. There’s a lot of really funny stories in this book which people would say, it’s funny and they will laugh but then they will also understand underneath that behavior is something out of our control or kind of addictive.
