Diet Culture

It’s common to hear during this stage, ‘I’ve lost my willpower’, ‘I’ve returned to my old ways’, ‘I failed’, ‘I just can’t control myself anymore’ – feeling self-defeat, shame, embarrassment, hopeless for regaining weight is born out of the myth that weight is a complete result of personal responsibility (not supported by the data, btw). Your body regaining weight isn’t a dysfunctional response, it responded to a threat and sought to regulate itself. #fails, Feelings, Weight Gain, Losing Me, Personal Responsibility, No Response, Willpower, Weight, Therapist

Information that challenges how diet culture (worldview) meshes with you is always uncomfortable initially. You've had dreams invested in it, desires counting on it, worthiness held hostage by it. It's been a wild ride. And now it's all shaken up. "Where do I turn? I thought this was the way." Life is messy, paradoxical, hard, wonderful and so many other things all at the same time. Our brains are doing the best they can with all this information. Eating Disorder Quotes, Worthiness, Diet Culture, Life Problems, Mixed Feelings, Paradox, Rejection, Counting, Messy

When we realise how much diet culture has impacted our lives, it's common to want to get people around us to change too, to show them another way, to share that there *is* another way... Only to realise some don't want a bar of it, and may even be concerned (esp if you're in a larger body). The biggest piece of advice I can give you is - it's okay if others don't agree, don't understand, or reject it completely. Assert your boundaries though! #dietculture #bodyimage Bulimia Recovery, Eating Disorder Recovery, Food Addiction Recovery, Improve Body Image, Body Image Quotes, Fat Positivity, Diet Mentality, Body Positive Quotes, Anti Dieting

Diet culture has sold to many of us the idea that if we can just control our food, exercise and body size - everything will be okay. It's not only wildly inaccurate - it's harmful in that some will spend a lifetime trying to heal deeper issues with food and exercise based control. #trauma #bodyimage #mentalhealth Eating Disorder Hope, Mental Health Services, Physical Health, Health Goals, Health And Wellness, Obsessive Thoughts, Bulimia

Targeting binge eating, and even binge eating disorder with most anything that is produced by diet culture is welcoming the disordered eating in the back door. Binge eating is typically based in a restriction mentality – even if you live in a ‘food-rich’ environment, the psychological scarcity around eating and pleasure overrides the potential security that comes from having access to food. Sure there may be ‘physical’ access for some – but psychological scarcity is fuelled by diet culture.  . Binge Eating Disorder, Scarcity, Body Image, Disorders, A Food, Pleasure, Psychology
