Today’s episode is all about the food, but not about the food as Molly and Susan dive into Susan’s journey and relationship with food. Even as young as four years old, Susan, like many of us, remembers and reflects on defining moments she had with food that dictated her relationship with food, particularly sugar, in adulthood. As the two discuss, Molly and Susan note that when we are faced with food traumas and restrictions, it becomes easier for us to rationalize unhealthy food choices.
Molly and Susan continue the inspirational dialogue by defining Susan’s rock bottom moment– COVID. As many of us were faced with challenges when the pandemic first started, Susan reflected that there was nowhere to hide her food habits. This led to what Susan deems a “divine intervention” moment where everything she knew about food was a behavior– meaning it could be changed.
Having played her part in the pervasive diet culture, Susan was wary of another diet cycle. By going “all in,” Susan made intentional changes with her behavior and relationship with food using the principles found in Breaking Up With Sugar.
