Reel Life to Real Life – Podcast Helps Listeners Control Emotional Eating
Los Angeles, California, – (News4us.com) June 25, 2013
Win The Diet War, a free podcast available for subscription in iTunes under the Health/Self Help category, has released a new episode to help listeners jump off the diet rollercoaster.
Host Dr. Nina Savelle-Rocklin, Psy.D., brings a fresh and innovative perspective to her podcasts, which are designed to help people stop overeating without dieting.
She explains that food issues are often the result of inner conflicts. By resolving these conflicts, eating problems go away on their own.
In the newest episode, titled “Be A Diet Wiz” she correlates the struggles faced by characters in The Wizard Of Oz to common dilemmas that listeners confront in their daily lives.
Each film character deals with concerns that pertain to the present-day difficulties of many people.
When people identify and work through those conflicts, they are less likely to turn to food to resolve them.
Dr. Nina says, “The characters from The Wizard Of Oz can teach you a lot about yourself and help challenge the negative ideas you have about yourself. When you feel better, it’s easier to make better food choices and lose weight.”
She illustrates how some characters, such as the wicked witch, signify the internal critic that we must defeat.
Other characters don’t see themselves as they are, or fail to appreciate themselves, which correlates to the problems in self-confidence that many listeners may face.
She describes the various ways that self-esteem issues are correlated to overeating.
As Dr. Nina puts it, “When you feel as if you’re not good enough, that’s painful and upsetting, and you’re more likely to use food for comfort and distraction.”
