EP212: How food and weight have been in the nine years since I stopped binge eating

In this episode, I share some brand new things I’ve been seeing about food, weight concerns, diet and binge eating.

Much of it is around physical and mental restriction of food. Diet mentality, good and bad foods, things we will and won’t try, striving to eat as little as necessary…these are all forms of restriction. And they all set your brain up to want to eat a lot of food as quickly as possible. They all lead to obsession with food.  

I’ll share how the past 9 years have gone for me, from food being an obsession, to it being a non-issue, to some blips of semi-obsession again, always after some form of restriction.  

The books I reference in this episode, both of which I highly recommend, are The F*ck It Diet https://www.amazon.com/Diet-Eating-Should-Be-Easy-ebook/dp/B07C685Q6L and Tired as F*ck https://www.amazon.com/Tired-Burnout-Self-Help-Hustle-Culture-ebook/dp/B094JMK5BD by Caroline Dooner. 


The Little School of Big Change turned 5 years old this summer!  So much change has happened in 5 years:

  • People from 55 countries have gone through the school.
  • Over 700 people have been part of our graduate community, many people for the past 5 years. 
  • The Little Book of Big Change, Just a Thought, and Being Human have been translated into 5 languages. 
  • Over 100,000 people have been introduced to the no-willpower approach shared in LSBC.

There are two ways you can celebrate the 5 year anniversary with us. 

#1. I taught a free class on Tuesday, August 2nd about how to break a habit the LSBC, no-willpower way so you can see how so many LSBC students have found freedom from habits and anxiety over the past 5 years. If you missed that class, you can catch the replay at https://dramyjohnson.com/5years.

#2. If you haven’t been through LSBC, you can begin going through the lessons right now for free! 

These are excellent introductions to LSBC and what it does for people for those of you who have not yet been part of the no-willpower movement. 

Simply head over to https://dramyjohnson.com/5years to register for the free class and begin going through the school curriculum today.
