The most wise piece of advice you’ve gotten during disordered eating recovery.
The best part of this post will be the comments section! So many people influence our recovery from disordered eating and body hate. So, what one piece of advice have you found most helpful on your intuitive eating journey?
My favorite advice was from Isabel Foxen Duke, on the Food Psych Podcast, when she said, “you are not less valuable if you take up more space in this world.” It felt so simple and I realized I deeply agreed even though at the time I didn’t believe it for myself because I was still pursing thinness. It was just one of those “right time, right phrase” kinda moments. That phrase solidified my motivation to step away from diet culture, that is, the belief that thinness leads to health and moral superiority, and played a huge role (along with, going to therapy, a structured meal plan at first, bringing Andrew along on this journey, the Intuitive Eating book, the Body Respect book, gaining weight, and stopping exercise) in me being where I am today.
How about you? What’s the greatest piece of advice you’ve been given regarding disordered eating recovery?
