Many of us have related to Oprah Winfrey’s struggles with weight and dieting in her thirty+ year career as a talk show host, actress, and producer. She has inspired thousands (maybe millions) of women to lose weight and gain health through various diets – liquid proteins, no carbs, and low-fat, to name a few.
As a self-identified “professional dieter”, Oprah is now a partial owner of Weight Watchers and is, again, sharing her dieting triumph and weight loss in a recent feature article in People Magazine.
But what caught my attention in this article is Oprah’s claim that she has made peace with food.
You see – that’s my focus as a binge eating specialist who works with women with disordered eating at Green Mountain’s Women’s Center for Binge & Emotional Eating.
I was grateful for the opportunity to comment on “making peace with food” in this article that I contributed to Psychology Today.
