Podcast: Staying On Track With Healthy Eating

This month, as we find ourselves walking along the path from our New Years Day to the celebration of the Chinese New Year in just a few weeks, I thought it would be a good time to discuss what many of us have set out to practice in our annual resolutions: healthy eating. I have a great deal of personal experience struggling with overeating, binge eating and being overweight for most of my life. I have walked a long way down the path of healing these wounds and I wanted to share my insights, both personally and professionally, here with you.

And instead of reading about it in detail, you can listen to a recent interview with me on a new podcast, the Everyday Acupuncture Podcast, hosted by my colleague, Michael Max, in St. Louis, MO.

In the interview I tell the story of my out-of-control relationship with food and the steps I took to bring my body & mind back towards balance. It was a lengthy process, but one that you might find interesting if you’ve had experiences with food addiction or have struggled with the very temporary results of fad dieting.

Please take some time to listen to my interview. In it, we discuss in detail the importance of eating meals at regular intervals, of not eating an abundance of cold foods or ice water, and above all how important mindfulness is in one’s approach to their food. Check it out:

My hope in sharing this is that it might give people who really struggle hope that there is a sustainable way to move toward a healthier, happier life.

If you have a real desire to do the work needed to lose weight and practice a healthy relationship with food, I would be more than happy to be part of your support network by providing acupuncture, herbal therapy and most importantly an empathetic ear.
