Imagine problems with food as a valuable signal from your inner compass. Overeating binges (end overeating?) provide a powerful clue that your needs are not being met in positive, healthy ways. In that sense, addictive behaviors that we may rightly wish to rid ourselves of can in fact be a gift. A gift to ourselves if we choose to listen and make the changes in our eating habits or other aspects of our daily lives that are crying out for change.
That was the gist of my message shared in a film interview this week. The producers of this new film — the name of which I’ll keep under wraps for the moment — brought me to Los Angeles to share this idea along with my personal story. I joined several authors and speakers who will be sharing their own stories in the film.
The creator’s vision is to create a modern documentary-style film similar in format to The Secret that makes this important point about weight loss: trust your body, listen to the inner voice to understand your needs and meet them — without food. So, as you might imagine, we got along great! After spending a few days together, I anticipate the film’s influence will be huge on the conversational landscape about body image and weight loss.
Release date for the film ought be mid next year, but you can anticipate another update here as the project unfolds.
Hopefully they’ll find another reason for me to visit the set — and another opportunity to wear my new favorite 4 inch heels!
