Calorie Counts On Labels: Request In Canada To Repeal The Act

00:0000:00

This week Tabitha talks to Andrea LeMarre about the harmful effect of calorie counts on food packets and in restaurant chains.

  • Calorie counts on labels and what this mean for people with eating disorders.
  • How you can get involved and have your voice heard.
  • Talking more about eating disorders in the public space.
  • How seeing calorie information can utterly derail a person in recovery from an eating disorder.

Tabitha’s commentary:

If you knew how much seeing calorie values displayed on food items and in restaurants affects someone with an eating disorder such as Anorexia, you’d not think it was ethical.

I’ll tell you about it. When I was trying to weight restore I wanted to eat. However, seeing a calorie value on a food would put my brain into fight-flight-freeze making it impossible to make a decision. Another thing that happens when this HPA axis response in the brain kicks off is that one can feel nauseous, short of breath, panicked and therefore trying to eat becomes not only uncomfortable but almost impossible because my throat would feel like it was closing up — it’s the same feeling you get when you are about to cry.

So yes, a full-blown fear response in public that I would have to pretend wasn’t happening which would usually result in an about-turn and leaving without eating. This was not be being a prat, it is a mental illness which means I can have a fear-response to that sort of thing on par with the type you might have if you see a rattlesnake.

That response has never gone away with full recovery. It is still there, but my fully nourished brain can dismiss it and override it in a way that it could not when I was underweight. Now it creates anger to see calorie values on food. We do not need to know the precise amount of calories or fat or anything else about our food.

Your body is not a calculator. We do not need to know what exact percentage of fat or any other nutrient in is in what we eat. The body will work it out and balance it’s own intake if we stop trying to interfere. The point is that putting calorie values on food is futile at best, but at worst causes people to artificially alter what they eat as they try to be “healthy” and all this does is create imbalance in the body which usually leads to some sort of battle between what the body wants to eat and what is actually consumed. And that’s not even going into the problems that calorie labelling elicits in a person with an eating disorder.

We need to stop messing around with the relationship humans have with food. When we push people to make decisions based on arbitrary values such as calories, we put the body and brain out of sync.

EDAW 2017 Adults with Eating Disorders: Loneliness

00:0000:00

In this special podcast for Eating Disorder Awareness week, I share some stories and experiences from adults in recovery from eating disorders. Today the focus is entrenched behaviours and overcoming the identity crisis that so many people in recovery from long term eating disorders have to deal with.

Adults in recovery from eating disorders face different challenges than children and teenagers do. The idea behind AEDRA — Active Eating Disorder Recovery for Adults is that we focus on adults and the specific problems that an adult in recovery will face.

Today I read your comments and thoughts on loneliness. Anorexia and other eating disorders are incredibly isolating. But recovery brings hope. New relationships will form and old ones will heal.

EDAW2017 Adults with Eating Disorders: Sex, Relationships, Family, Friends, Kids

00:0000:00

In this special podcast for Eating Disorder Awareness week, I share some stories and experiences from adults in recovery from eating disorders. Today the focus is relationships, sex, family and kids!

Adults in recovery from eating disorders face different challenges than children and teenagers do. The idea behind AEDRA — Active Eating Disorder Recovery for Adults is that we focus on adults and the specific problems that an adult in recovery will face.

The sex/relationships one is a big topic of conversation for adults. Lack of libido tends to lead to a dramatic fall in the desire to participate in sexual activity. Also the irritability and other disposition changes that many sufferers face as a reaction to malnutrition isn’t exactly a relationship booster. Family life can be fraught as it is, but when an eating disorder barges in it takes on a whole new level of tension.

From lack of interest in sex, to dealing with family reactions to weight loss. That is what we are talking about today.

EDAW2017 Adults with Eating Disorders: Money and Work

00:0000:00

In this special podcast for Eating Disorder Awareness week, I share some stories and experiences from adults in recovery from eating disorders. Today the focus is money and work.

Adults in recovery from eating disorders face different challenges than children and teenagers do. The idea behind AEDRA — Active Eating Disorder Recovery for Adults is that we focus on adults and the specific problems that an adult in recovery will face.

The money and work one is a big topic of conversation for adults. We often have to pay for our own treatment. What do we do when we are too sick to work? Recovery is a full time job, so what about taking time out for that? And then there are the money-spending problems that many people with restrictive eating disorders have.

From spending money on putting the heating on to keep a thin and frail body warm enough, to paying thousands for treatment, to actually forking out for that piece of cake that you know you are scared to eat. It all adds up to a lot of money stress. That is what we are talking about today.

00:0000:00

In this podcast Tabitha gets to talk to one of her favorite eating disorder experts: Laura Collins Lyster-Mensh. We discuss FEAST, eating disorder peer support forums, and how to take the sting out of an eating disorder diagnosis for the family members involved.

Laura founded FEAST, and this website is a true gift for any parent navigating the world of eating disorders. Since FEAST Laura has stayed active in the eating disorder parent community and works with treatment centers on how they can better gear services towards families from start to end.

Laura Collins Lyster-Mensh wrote the book “Eating With Your Anorexic,” which provided a blueprint for all parents struggling with the elemental challenge of parenting a child with anorexia nervosa.

In 2008, Laura became the original Executive Director of FEAST — Families Empowered and Supporting Treatment of Eating Disorders.

Laura now operates Circum Mensam. She offers her knowledge and experience in the field of eating disorders from a parent perspective to educational and advocacy organizations.

Former NFL Player Patrick Devenny Talks About His Experience With Bulimia

00:0000:00

In this podcast, Tabitha talks with former NFL player Patrick Devenny about being a man with Bulimia. We talk about the mental and physical complications that his illness brought and how these affected his life. We also talk about the role of exercise and how Patrick’s compulsion to exercise was a large part of the problem. Patrick is now on a recovery path, and while he says that there is still a way to go, he knows that the treatment that he has received from the eating disorder specialists that he has worked with has been invaluable to his recovery.

It takes incredible strength to recover from an eating disorder. It takes even more self acceptance to talk about it openly in a world where many people believe that eating disorders are a phase that teenage girls go through. Patrick is doing a fantastic service by talking about his experience with bulimia. It shows incredible strength and courage and I hope that he will lead the way so that more men can get treatment.

Tabitha talks to Carrie Arnold on her experience on adult eating disorder recovery when Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Anorexia are present together.

Negative Energy Balance or Energy Deficit in Restrictive Eating Disorders

00:0000:00

In this podcast I explain negative energy balance (energy deficit) in restrictive eating disorders. I talk about what it actually is, how it is different in a person with an eating disorder compared to a person without an eating disorder, and how if feels.

Energy deficit is important to understand as it helps us figure out why something that feels really good for us can actually be very bad for us. In order to recover, sufferers have to learn to resist the lure of negative energy balance and the soothing aspects of it. While this creates anxiety and uncomfortableness at first, it is an important aspect of recovery.

Understanding the mechanisms behind restrictive eating disorders can help us figure out what we need to do in order to overcome them.
