Freedom from Emotional Eating, Food & Weight Obsession

Food Waste-Shocking and Sad

When you struggle with emotional eating, your relationship with food is complicated, to say the least. But after watching HBO’s John Oliver  on YouTube talk about food and food waste in America, I’m reminded just how screwed up this country’s relationship is with food, in general.

How can a nation full of such smart people not care enough to solve issues of hunger and food waste. As Oliver explains (pretty graphically–pardon the crassness and language in spots), we have dumpsters and then landfills full of perfectly edible food that decomposes and produces methane gas?

Why can’t we fix this? As someone who has never gone hungry a day in her life, this issue breaks my heart…

About Ellen Shuman

Ellen on the phone

I have worked in the Wellness Field for 30 years. I created an Emotional Eating & Binge Eating Disorder Recovery Program way before most people knew BED was an eating disorder, NOT a “willpower” issue. Personally, I suffered for years before finding answers and the help I needed and deserved! I became a Coach in 1997 to help others who were still suffering as I had. I love being a Coach!
