#150 Why we eat too much


The Paul Dermody Podcast

Through the podcast I want to share with you first the fundamentals of nutrition, no fads. On top of that I want you to reconnect with the joy in food through appreciation, choice and autonomy. I will share ideas from expert guests as well as poignant stories from clients of mine from those seeking weight nuetral outcomes all the way to those who have lost over 150 lbs.

In today’s episode, Paul expands on a recent blog article he wrote about why we eat too much.

When we hear that ‘Diets Fail’ it often speaks to those that start dieting out of a place of insecurity and therefore in this narrow definition all diets do fail.

Today he explores that idea and chats about…

  • How in modern times we have a caloric abundance and sedentary lifestyle
  • The emergence of a huge wellness industry that provides good advice but doesn’t engage with our WHY
  • How we are starved of the actual ingredients we crave
  • How dieting is often misunderstanding what we truly need
  • Why we need deeper reasons to make new choices
  • Why we can’t always battle food as it will always be there
  • Different nutrition for different parts like our soul and inner peace
  • The diet industry appeals to a narrow fragment of your psychology
  • Why we cannot connect with the WHY as so often we are just given the WHAT
  • The industry is obsessed with deficits and overlooks connection and self-awareness
