Healing Your Relationship with Eating
The vast amount of information currently available about food can lead you to feelings of fear, guilt and judgment. You may stop enjoying food due to information overload.

To enjoy food again, find something that feels good for you. You may enjoy cooking or eating certain foods. Exercise may make you feel calm and creative. Spend more time doing that thing. It will quiet your mind and help your food intuition come to the surface.

Be mindful. Make decisions to eat food and enjoy it while you eat. Consider what drives your cravings. If your craving is emotionally driven, see if there is another way to address those emotions.

If your friend is struggling with food, it is not your job to fix her. Release any judgment. In due time your friend can move through the experience and heal. Try to provide pleasant experiences, not putting pressure on how to experience food.
