I am so fat!
I am disgusting!
I can’t stand to look at myself!
My head is too big for my body!
I am so weak – I have no muscle tone!
I avoid mirror because I am so freakishly tall.
I’ve had my nose fixed but now I can see that my lips need work too!

On a recent rainy day I took my workout inside to the local gym. As I was dutifully (and boringly) trudging along on the treadmill, I looked up at the TV screen and saw a shot of a fork lifting out a bite of ooey, gooey, mac and cheese. Now I tuned in more intentionally. After all, on a grey and rainy day that shot of the mac and cheese made my morning. The show was an episode of “The Chew,” a daytime cooking show that I wouldn’t typically be watching. But, hey, I was a captive audience.

March 18th Third Annual VFED Luncheon | Sportsmen Lodge in Studio City

A dietitian without a scale and a therapist who collaborates with a dietitian. Together they make a great difference in the lives of their patients.

Over a delicious and elegant luncheon, Aaron Flores, RDN and Lindsey Budd, LMFT treated VFED members to a glimpse of the work they do. After elucidating the concepts of Health at Every Size and Intuitive Eating, they relayed a moving and encouraging case study about a client who struggles with Compulsive Overeating.
