Why my eating disorder turned me into a grocery thief

00:0000:00

Personal story time!

 

Not everyone who is suffering from long-term malnutrition turns to stealing, but I think it is a lot more prevalent than most people assume it is. It makes sense why a brain that believes resources are scarce would feel the need to take without giving anything away. 

In this podcast, I talk about my personal experience with kleptomania.

Podcast: Study shows diet talk and behaviour passes down through generations

00:0000:00

In this podcast Tabitha Farrar talks to Jerica Berge about a new study illistrating how diet talk and encouragement to diet can be passed down through generations

Parent Encouragement to Diet From Adolescence Into Adulthood May Cause Intergenerational Harm

Study: http://www.practiceupdate.com/content/parent-encouragement-to-diet-from-adolescence-into-adulthood-may-cause-intergenerational-harm/65474

  • In this longitudinal study 556 adolescents were surveyed when in school and again after 15 years in adulthood and/or parenthood to evaluate the association between parental encouragement to diet in adolescence and health outcomes in adult life. Significant association was observed between parent encouragement to diet in adolescence and an increased risk of overweight or obesity, dieting, binge eating, unhealthy weight control behaviors, and lower body satisfaction in adulthood. In addition, the authors noted an intergenerational transmission of encouragement to diet in the home environment.

  • Clinicians should inform parents about the potentially harmful and enduring outcomes associated with encouraging their children to diet.

The State of Science: Sugar Addiction

00:0000:00

We talk about:

- Animal studies into addiction and what they can tell us about human behaviour. 

- What studies into drug and other types of addiction can tell us about "sugar addiction."

- How restriction, not addiction, looks to be the driver behind binge eating behaviours. 

- Artificial sweetners and how they affect the way we desire foods. 

- Binge eating development and the role of restriction. 

- Why "food addiction" can be a problematic use of language. 

 

Paper we discussin in this podcast: Westwater, M.L., Fletcher, P.C. & Ziauddeen, H. Eur J Nutr (2016) 55(Suppl 2): 55. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00394-016-1229-6

Event Restriction

00:0000:00

In this podcast Tabitha talks about what she refers to as "event restriction." 

Event restriction is when you anticipate eating more or resting at an event or time in the future, and therefore try to create a "buffer" by restricting more or compensating more via exercise in preparation. 

Event restriction never works. Most people find that is actually makes eating and resting harder, so ironically you struggle even more when you actually get to the big day. Most commonly people event restriction in preparation for Christmas and the festive season.

Orthorexia: Why it’s healthy to eat “unhealthy” foods

00:0000:00

In this podcast Tabitha talks about orthorexia and why it is important to be able to eat all kinds of food without stress — including foods that you judge as unhealthy. 

I see orthorexia as a restrictive eating disorder. The goalposts may be slightly altered, but it is still restricting certain types of food that the sufferer deems to be "unhealthy."

If you have orthorexia you may find that you feel stressed about eating things like:

  • Fatty foods
  • Sugar and sweets
  • Salt
  • Artificial colors, flavors or preservatives
  • Pesticides or genetic modification
  • Non-organic foods
  • Animal products
  • Dairy products
  • Anything considered to be unhealthy

People with orthorexia often also get obsessive about foods that they consider to be "healthy". So supplements may be excessively bought and used. Organic foods, foods that are sold as "health" foods.

Defining Restriction. Defining Unrestricted Eating

00:0000:00

In this podcast, Tabitha talks about restriction, and unrestricted eating. Restrictive eating disorders such as Anorexia are often misrepresented as total restriction and not eating. This is often not the case. Many people with Anorexia can eat seemingly "normal" amounts of food and still be operating under rules of restriction. The key is understanding that unrestricted eating is required in order to allow the brain and body to fully exit the Anorexia response. 

Redefining how you think of restriction is often the key to understanding what unrestrictive eating means for you
